Ratings for Dr. Robert Gole
I am on a budget and Dr. Gole and Dr. Uddin both helped me find what worked best for me! Saved hundreds versus the other competitors. I really appreciate them helping me do what was best for me. I think the other ratings are not true at all. Thanks Gole Eyeworks!
I agree with the many previous comments and have heard the same from many people in the community that he and the staff are always trying to guilt you into buying the most expensive frame and lens. They do not understand that when you are on a restricted budget you need to make informed decisions and prioritize your spending in all areas.
The entire office, doctors and supporting staff are extremely kind and above all knowledgeable. You see upon your first visit that this office takes the time to be well informed on the latest information, procedures, and technology concerning your eye health. I only wish I had found Gole Eyeworks sooner.
It was my first time at Gole Eyeworks Vsion Boutique and might I say a GREAT first impression. It has a great location and easy parking. The staff was so kind and acknowledged me right away. Dr.Gole was so wonderful. He took his time explaining everything he was doing step by step. He recommended the best contacts specifically for my eyes. Who knew there's more then one brand of contacts?! I learned so much from him in one appointment. There was no pressure in purchasing anything, but I definitly will be. Since other places make you wait for your contact order but he had everything right on hand.They had such a variety of eye glasses, something for everyone. Such a GENUINELY kind and caring place. I highly recommend to everyone. What a great experience! I Know my eyes are in the best of care. 😎
What an amazing experience I just had at Gole EyeWorks. I have never experienced a team of staff and Dr's that are so knowledgable and really care about my vision and how my glasses look. I will be bringing all my family and friends here and feel 100% confidant that they will be getting the best care around!!!
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!
