Dr. Robert Gole's Ratings
We've been patients since 1982 starting with Dr. Cole but staying after Dr. Gole took over his practice. Last year, my husband went for his annual eye test, was told his prescription had changed; he got new frames and lenses ($1,000) and tried to see with these for six weeks. He went back for a re-test only to find his eyes had not changed at all and was given the same lenses he had been wearing the previous year. I was so fed up from the previous year's test that I found a new eye doctor just to discover the trouble with my eyes was that the frame I had used for three previous prescription changes was not large enough to accommodate the reading area I needed so it was just cut off the lens bottoms. Not one staff member in the office checked my frame to notice this, particularly Dr. Gole (unacceptable and unprofessional). I would have been happy to change my frame if I had been informed of this problem, particularly since they are very pushy about keeping the sales in house (charged $1,000 for two sets of lenses without frames). We have been offered no apology nor monetary compensation which is disgusting since we are pensioners on fixed incomes. We also agree with other patients' experiences regarding staff who do not readily offer a printed prescription in order to shop and compare prices. We had to be firm to get documentation. We will never go back to this doctor and encourage other would-be patients to vet several eye doctors before deciding who should be taking care of something as important as your vision.
Dr. Gole is really great - one of the best optometrists I've had, and I have been wearing glasses for the past 30 years! His office has very up to date technology, and he took time to explain everything he was doing and made sure I understood the results. No one has ever took the time to explain laser eye surgery to me, in so much detail, as Dr. Gole. I would recommend him to anyone needing an optometrist!
I was recommended Dr.Gole by a staff member of his office. They spoke highly of Dr. Gole, and his associate, Dr.Uddin. When you think of it, as a friend, she had my eyes on her mind, not her office. I'm incredibly glad she did. I'm a "why person", and found that Dr.Gole could explain things easily to me (in lay mans terms), which put my mind at ease! My visit was excellent and when I sat down at the end of my exam for a discussion on glasses and products, I was given an "at home" alternative for one of the products and was given 3 different price options for different quality lenses for my current frames. Looking back now, I was probably a very annoying client, but after the first initial visit and the offices follow up calls to ensure I dealt with first time glasses just fine, I probably won't need to ask so many questions next time!! Aniexty level REDUCED!! Thanks again to everyone at Gole Eyeworks!
I was recommended by a friend who couldn't say enough good things about GOLE Eyeworks. I decided to give them a try and I'm so glad I did. I have never been to ANY eye doctor before that treated me like the way GOLE Eyeworks did. From the minute I arrived the staff were so friendly and explained everything to me from start to finish. I learned so much about my eye health and vision. Let's talk about my experience in my frame selection. The girls were AWESOME!!!! They were very enthusiastic in helping choose the perfect frame and made sure I was in love with the one I ended up deciding on. Let's just say I have never had a more beautiful frame and my vision is crystal clear.
Dr. Gole is an EXCELLENT Optometrist. He is adaptable to every patient he sees. He is knowledgeable and up to date with technology. His staff is helpful and pleasent. I have and would recommend him to anyone looking for an optometrist.
I've been a patient of Dr. Gole's for many years. I recently had my annual check up and as always I'm very pleased with Dr. Gole's knowledge and excellent care. The staff is very helpful and they have such a terrific selection of frames, which I have priced compared and find them very reasonable.
I went in today and had to get a new prescription that is very expensive but Dr Gole took the time to explain why I need this prescription and then his staff took the time to help me find a pair of frames that were reasonable but still very nice.
I have been seeing Dr. Gole and his staff for about 15 or so years and am very happy with his services. He and his staff go out of their way to make sure you are looked after in all aspects from your initial visit, follow up visits, tests and glasses fittings. He can be a little expensive but to me it is worth the additional fees to make sure my vision is completely looked after.
