What our patients are saying
Dr T is an awesome guy. I consider him to be the person that saved my eye sight. His professionalism and calling the specialist to get me in right away was above and beyond. I would recommend the entire staff as being the most courteous and friendly bunch I have ever had the pleasure of meeting in an Optometrist's office.
Had my first visit with Dr Michelle Thelen on July 14th of this year. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable! The doctor and technician were very thorough and offered many suggestions and provided me great input. Will definitely be returning! For the last several years I had been going to another eye doctor and felt I was not getting the service I thought I should have been receiving. I broke my eyeglasses by accident and at that time decided to change doctors. The doctor and her staff were outstanding. I cannot wait to get my new glasses.
This place is great. I moved here about a year & half ago and knew I'd need to find an eye doctor. I knew I wanted to go to a hometown local doctors office & not a Lense Crafters type place. My previous eye doctor was not a chain store doctor & I enjoyed the personal experiences with them (plus I feel like they actually remember you). I found Annandale almost a year ago & went to them for my annual check up in Feb 2017. My next appointment isn't until Feb. 2018, but today at work I thought I'd accidentally scratched my eye. I had eye surgery a few years back so I'm pretty paranoid when it comes to my eyes & avoiding mishaps whenever possible. I got in touch with them & they were so wonderful in they were able to squeeze me in right before the office closed for the day so Dr. Thelen could make sure there wasn't a problem with my eye.
I saw many positive reviews and came here because it was time for an eye exam. I was greeted and instructed on how to fill out the necessary paperwork. I had very little waiting time to get called for my exam. I had a very thorough eye exam and everything went smoothly. Michelle answered all questions I had and was very helpful. They have a good selection of frames to look at as well.
Very detailed eye exam. They do run on time, which is a plus. Dr. Michelle Thelen was super friendly and professional. She answered all of my questions and concerns. Her assistant was super kind and friendly, made me feel comfortable.
Excellent service and professionalism. The doctor was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Will be returning in the future.
I really can't say enough good things about this office. Everyone, from the front office staff to the doctors to the showroom assistants, was incredibly nice and helpful. I never felt rushed. Not only that, but they were very knowledgeable about what my insurance did and did not cover. This is the first time I've been to an eyecare practice, rather than one of those places in a strip-mall or mall, and now there is no way I can ever go back.
I have a patient at Annandale Eye Care for many years now. Drs. Michelle and Cortney Thelen are very friendly and take the time to listen and discuss changes or concerns. The staff is wonderful and was so patient with my absolute fear of putting contacts in. (I am old and have a fear of touching my eye. I also didn't want to wear glasses anymore. Not a great combination.) They are so friendly and kind. I am excited to see the new office next year. The pictures look amazing.
Had to take my 5 year old daughter to get a baseline test for her Elementary school and I cannot believe what an amazing place all around this is. Dr. C. Thelen had great bedside manners and very professional and warm towards my kids and me. My daughter adored him and he even managed to get my son who is 3 to get tested. I think this place is diamond in the rough. The office is nice, clean and classy. The staff, all three ladies were super sweet and very helpful. Loved the refrigerator with drinks and Keurig coffee machine. I am looking forward to return and get my eyes tested.
Dr Court and Dr Michelle are truly as good as it gets in the field of vision care. Always professional and caring, these two are our favorite neighborhood doctors! Our entire family goes there and we've been with them for years. Every single one of their staff is awesome as well - always helpful and courteous. Simply an outstanding practice!
I've lost track of how many people I've told about this place. I. LOVE. IT. HERE. The staff is always warm and welcoming...and since I've been a patient for years, they always ask about my family. They are quick to help me, even when I'm reordering contacts for my daughter who's away at college. Both doctors are professional and thorough, but more importantly, caring. They care about their patients. I wouldn't go anywhere else and am looking forward to adding my 2 year old son to their client list!
Love these folks. Court Thelen and his staff took great care of me. I came to him for a second opinion on my prescription and he was much more thorough than the last OD I went to. I really appreciate the extra mile he went for me. Plus, he is a fellow Husker. I highly recommend him.
Extremely professional. Knows his stuff better than my old doctors. He was able to squeeze me in on extremely short notice to get some new contacts, and he pinpointed a few new tweaks to my script that are already making my eyes more comfortable. Extremely nice guy, very little wait time, and he goes in depth on his explanation. I would give him 6 stars if I could.
I have been a patient at Annandale Eye Care since the 1960s and have always had great service. When Court and Michelle Thelen took over the practice it move up from "gold" to "platinum" standards of service. They are both amazing optometrists who devote plenty of time to each patient. Their equipment is constantly upgraded to ensure they have the most up to date tools to provide a thorough eye examination. The new office is comfortable, welcoming and immaculately clean. The support staff, many of whom have been with the practice for several years, is as good as it gets -- they are professional, friendly, knowledgeable and completely adept at their jobs. Visiting Annandale Eye Care is not like a medical appointment, it's a bit more like a long anticipated afternoon with friends. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Exceptional place. Great team. My first appointment was a methodical series of test last by a very nice tech. She explained all the tests. Dr. Thelen was excellent. He explained all the tests. The reason for all of them and the results. He is a great doctor. Everything was great. The office is nice. Well designed and modern. Highly recommend to everyone.
The staff are always friendly, flexible, and efficient. I usually see Dr. Michelle, but both Michelle and Courtney are not only great doctors but also very down-to-earth people who take the time to make sure you feel comfortable and understand what is going on in the appointment.
Got a pair of glasses that I had second thoughts about. Emailed the office asking about return policy, and the optician called me personally to ask how they could make things right. I stopped by their office and they made some adjustments to the frame. Now I'm very happy with my glasses. Very good customer service. Avail yourself to the complimentary mini-fridge while you're there.
