Dr. Margaret Penny is an exceptional optometrist. Her experience, knowledge, thoroughness, patience and compassion are invaluable. She takes the time to assess situation from all angles, creates a plan and follows-up in an efficient and effective manner. She cares about her patients and it shows in her approach in all that she does. Dr. Penny also does visual and perception assessments and creates individualized plans in these areas. She has changed my child's vision and, hence, his academic success. He now LOVES to read. He is able to focus and track when reading text of various difficulty levels and his frustration levels have subsided significantly. Her team of administrators, opticians, and all other workers provide excellent customer service. They are friendly, patient, courteous and try to make your stay very comfortable. The office looks very professional. The appointments run on time. There is a great selection of frames and sunglasses to browse through while you wait for your appointment. There is a coffee machine as well as kids' corner where they can draw, read or watch a show. We drive from NW to see this Dr and consider it our privilege.

Dr Penny now has her own private clinic and she is even better than before (If that is possible!). Her child friendly clinic has thought of everything to keep the kids occupied while you go for your exam. Dr Penny is extremely thorough as ever and her stff are just the most friendly and helpful staff you are ever likely to meet. I highly recommend Dr Penny - to everyone - often.

Dr. Penny is great. She is very knowledgeable and lets you know what she is doing and why. She was great with my son too (3 years old). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

After many, many years of struggle with my vision I accidentally found Dr. Penny on the web. After the first visit I can proudly say that I consider myself a very lucky person. I can finally see the world properly. Dr. Penny is the best!

Dr. Penny is great. The staff is high pressure sales. I prefer to shop around for glasses.

Dr. Penny diagnosed my macular degeneration and with a simple pill with lutein it has reversed. I believe in her and trust her implicitly. However, their eyewear line is much too expensive. In February 2012 I had my 2 year visit. That was perfect with the doctor. When I met with the eyewear staff I asked for a copy of my prescription but felt uncomfortable. It is March, 2014, and I did not receive a call from the office for my next visit. I have,always been called in the past. My only reason to go to urban optic is for Dr. Penny otherwise I would not go back.
