My first Optomap was awesome. Dr. Orr was great as were Wendi who helped with my eye tests and Jen who worked with me to choose glasses and determine the best way to work with my insurance.
I first went to Dr. Baker 18 months ago, and had a great experience. The staff was very nice, the appointment itself was a very pleasant--even relaxing--experience, and Dr. Baker could write a book on how physicians should interact with their patients. He's down to earth, patient, and makes the effort to explain what he's recommending and why.
Best eye doctor EVER!! I'm actually due to go back but putting it off because I haven't taken care of my contacts like I should and don't want Dr. Baker to know... but I have never had such a thorough exam or felt like my eye doctor was really on top of things. I think the thing that really put Dr. Baker over the top is how much time he spent with me. Usually a doctor will only deal with you for a few min during the exam and have their assistants do the rest, but Dr. Baker spent like an hour with me, I've never felt so well taken care of by a doctor. I can't recommend La Morinda Optometry enough!!
I got my glasses there about a year ago. I found some designer brand eyeglasses in Berkeley, but the Berkeley store didn't take my eye insurance. So I was glad to see that Lamorinda had them. I don't think they were more expensive and with the insurance it was a great savings.
I took them back a couple of times as the frames got bent and they cheerfully fixed them for no charge, taking them completely apart and putting them back together.
The second time, they noticed a small crack in the glass. The doctor (Mario) offered to try and get the manufacturer to replace them. I didn[t even have to ask. He was successful and now I have a new pair of frames.
I've taken my entire family to Dr. Baker's office over the past few years and can say great things about our experience from the moment we walk in the door throughout the entire treatment. The staff has been more than accomodating both on appointments and drop in visits as well. They are great at calling to remind us of appointments and also at reminding us for issues we'd looked at on our last visit.
The doctor is wonderful with kids as well as adults. This family highly recommends this office. You won't be sorry.
Great service and care. Doctor and staff are knowledgeable and friendly.
I was very pleased with this place after my last 2 visits. It was recommended to me by a friend who said the Dr. was very friendly and she was right!
I hadn't had a really thorough eye exam in probably 15 years- way overdue! I was hoping that they would do a good exam since I'd been having some small eye issues. My first exam was almost 2 hours long- SUPER thorough! I was SO pleased and felt very well taken care of and happy to know the whole health of my eyes. They ran a ton of different tests and I paid $30 extra to get a kind of eye x-ray for deeper testing- it was fascinating and good to know I have healthy eyes for the most part. The price was not bad for all the testing and time it took- definitely worth it to do every few years I'd think. The doctor did find some problems and gave me some homework to do over the next month. I just had my month checkup and all looked pretty good. He taught me how to take better care of my eyes which should help with comfort in the long run.
Overall the whole staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a big parking lot in the rear of the building too. My only complaint was on my second visit I sat in my room waiting for the Dr. for around 20 minutes and I'm VERY inpatient especially when it comes to doctors offices so that was a little frustrating but not enough to keep me from coming back (the first time I didn't have to wait long at all).
I'm so happy I found a great eye doctor in the area!!
