Be very careful with these people. If anything goes wrong with your lens, frame or exam you are on your own. I can't believe this place is still in business after all these years. Stay away!

My experience at Dr. Friedman's office was awesome. The moment I walked in I was greeted by a very pleasant and professional Receptionist. After completing the necessary paperwork I was directed to the waiting area. I was impressed with the selection of magazines for patients while waiting for Dr. Friedman. I was viewing the table of contents of a current copy of an Essence magazine, with the intention of reading an article, but I was called in and seen at my appointed time. My eye exam with Dr. Friedman was thorough and complete. Afterwards, I was shown beautiful eyeglass frames from a selection that varied from economical to designer styles. I ask about the prices and received the information. I plan to return and purchase a pair of glasses soon. I appreciated the employee showing me the frames and she explained the process. A GREAT visit. I highly recommend Dr. Friedman to others in search of a pleasant and professional eye examination. My thanks to Dr. Friedman and Staff. Blessings, Margarett Floyd,

Being to over ten different optometrist, its safe to say I experienced my worst time here. Not only was this office underemployed but the receptionist assistants and a optometrist seemed to hate their job, as they were very disrespectful through the means of their tone and overall attitude towards the customer. It seemed the optometrist was rushing me through when I came in for a yearly check-up, to get to the other countless awaiting patients/customers. Initially when I scheduled an appointment, I had to subsequently wait another hour past the scheduled time, due to the fact that there was over eight...yes EIGHT patients waiting before me. This is a natural consequence due to the cheap owner, Dr. Freidman who doesn't seem to hire more than two optometrist. One of whom is really not a optometrist yet rather a Ophthalmic Laboratory Technician. THIS WAS TOLD TO ME BY ONE OF THE WORKERS WHO HELPS CUSTOMERS TRY ON GLASSES. Even when I returned to pick up an already payed for box of contacts, I had to wait for an hour and a half to just get a two-minute processed follow-up by the Ophthalmic Laboratory Technicians. I THEN waited yet ANOTHER TWENTY-FIVE MINUTES in the utterly confined waiting room--literally it was eleven chairs in a 6 by 4 feet room--patiently waiting for MY ALREADY PAID AND ORDERED box of contacts. After waiting patiently, I was then told that it was out of stock. And would be called when they are back in stock to come back and pick them up. IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON COMING HERE, LOOK FOR OTHER LOCAL OPTOMETRIST OFFICES THAT TAKE YOUR INSURANCE, AS TO AVOID USELESS TIME IN THIS HIGHLY DISORGANIZED OPTOMETRIST OFFICE.

This isn't an optometrists office, it is a retail shop. Do not go to this doctors office, if you are looking to be comfortable and welcomed. I started going to this doctor in 2006, and I really liked Dr.Friedman, but when it came to the ordering contacts or glasses, it turned into a retail shop. They over charge for a box of contacts and their eye glass selection is clearly catered to the rich. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate the luxury things in life (this is LA), but when the service is snobby and cold, it makes you feel uncomfortable. NOT GOING BACK! Getting my rx and I am out! SNOBS!

The women that work there are just trying to sell products. I have a family of 8 and 3 of us get glasses there but not no more . They laugh in ur face when they tell u they can't fix the glasses because they charge $89 for frames that r used.They can go f them selves.

I've Been To This Place A Couple Times For New and To Repair My Glasses, But Recently I've Gone To Get My Frames Repaired, They Had Ordered Them And Usually It'll Take About A Week or Two To Have My Glasses Back, But The Last Visit I Had Was 3 Weeks Ago, and Still I Have No Glasses, It Is Affecting My Job And Vision. They Had A Made A Mistake and Had Ordered Someone Else's Glasses and Now I Believe I'll Be Waiting Another Week, Or More If They Continue Making Mistakes Like That.

Okay, to make a long story short- I was looking for a decent price for a basic eye exam because it has been ages since I got my baby blues checked out. You know what they say, "You only get one pair of eyes so you better take care of them!" Or do they say that? Nonetheless! I discovered this place and decided to go. Who can beat A $59 eye exam?? I mean, even if it's a crappy experience, it's worth it- as long as I can make sure my eyes are safe for a decent deal. I don't need anyone to ice the cake for me. We're all human, after all. To the appointment! I went in, and the office seemed bright and lively. The women behind the front desk greeted me like they all just drank a gallon of coffee apiece. These ladies were surprisingly courteous &FULL of spunk! That's what I like to see when I go out to a place- it makes you feel warm and welcome. The woman who checked me in gave me some short paperwork that I had to fill out. It was quick and easy.... I waited a lousy 20 minutes before I got seen, but I feel like that's a typical waiting time? It's not everyday that I see an eye doctor, clearly. When I go see my general practitioner it's usually about the same time unless I have to fill out a book of paperwork (which is the first time only anyways...) They called my name and I went for pretesting and then went to the exam room. Mister doc guy greeted me and he seemed somewhat serious, but he's an eye doc sooooooo what more could I really expect? Him to bring me some cookies and make me laugh while he's checking out my eyes? Onnnnnnly in dreamland. Lol. He actually turned out to be a pretty nice guy. Anyways, my babyblues ended up being good to go- I didn't need any extra services and left feeling content that my eyes would last me years to come as long as I check up on them regularly? I'm a positive person and I give positive vibes to the universe, so I feel like I get back what I give. I was happy my visit here turned out so well. I won't be back for a while (probably like 5 years, lol) because I rarely check my eyes unless I'm at the DMV. I will go back here in 5 years though... it was a friendly environment &that's what I like to experience when I pay for a service! I definitely recommend them..
