I was impressed from the moment I walked in the front door, where I was greeted by the receptionist who asked about my appointment. Confirmed on her computer, welcomed me and walked me to sign in at the correct area. Dr. Schimmel and his staff were welcoming and kind. The office is beautiful and I noticed a very nice vision center where glasses can be sold and fitted, as well as a coffee station for patients.
