Thank you for your honest reply--I am so sorry to hear of your friend's terminal illness and that s/he was indirectly subjected to such inappropriate treatment. I can't speak for the Amesbury office--I only go to the office in NBPT. I can tell you & anyone who may read this that in NBPT, the office has been wholly respectful to me and my family. Again, I cannot speak for all, but my experiences have always been positive...now, we'll see how this continues: I am in dire need of an upgrade in my contacts/glasses prescription & I leave to go back to college in two days! Hopefully, they will be as accommodating as I've always known them to be. I'll be sure to let you know if I am treated w/ disrespect, &c. \r
Again, this would be unusual--I love them all in the NBPT office! If you haven't tried yet, may I suggest the NBPT office?\r
I wish you & everyone else who reads this success in their search for professional eye care...our sense of sight is invaluable to us & we need honest, careful, genial, and well-trained optometrists who will treat us with respect and ensure that we are given the best care possible. Personally, I found this in Appleton Eye Associates of Newburyport, MA. \r
I'd be interested to hear what others have to say!
Pros: Friendly staff, Dr. G, in particular has never ceased to make me laugh and put aside preoccupations w/regard to glasses, &c. Also, always willing to teach about his profession :-)
Cons: Everyone's in need of eye care, so I've found there to be waiting lists, &c. I wish the office would expand!
