Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Stone & Andrea, I was a patient of yours this month and I wanted to take the time to tell you how impressed I was with the treatment and the service I received at your office. I have never had such a wonderful experience with any other service professional. Dr. Stone was patient and extremely thorough in his exam and I honestly felt like he was genuinely interested in evaluating the problems I was having with my vision and finding the optimal solution.Andrea was extremely helpful and friendly in making sure that I was happy with my eyewear. I was treated with respect and felt like my appointment time (and even the time that I walked-in to pick up my glasses) was a priority to Andrea and Dr. Stone. I really appreciate your approach and consideration in providing a valuable service to the community. I love my glasses and intend on telling everyone I know what wonderful and attentive people work at Andrew Stone Optometry. Thank you! "

  • "Dr. Stone became our family optician the best way possible through word of mouth.A friend was really happy and suggested him, and we've been thrilled with our experiences. He's extremely thorough in his exams, and really gets to know your needs and habits. The selection of eyewear is great, and I finally enjoy the process of selecting frames (the staff will send photos of you featuring your various choices so that you can get input from family or friends who weren't with you!). I highly recommend Dr. Stone."

  • "After many years of "feeling that something just wasn't quite right' with my eye sight, my daughter talked me into traveling almost five hours to Columbia to see HER Dr. Stone. I had years of unanswered questions and knew that my eye sight was going downhill. I knew THIS place was different just walking in the door! No sterile, medical-type office with cubicles. I immediately felt comfortable with the pleasant, soothing surroundings.THEN I met the staff. Wow, I was impressed by the friendliness,thoroughness & efficiency! Finally, in came Dr. Stone. He greeted me like an old friend." I told him of my concerns and had the feeling he knew exactly what I meant and HE DID! He was able to answer my questions. What a relief. Not only is Dr. Stone extremely knowledgeable, you can tell because he often provides information on new research and options, he makes his patients feel comfortable, he wants to know what his patients think, and he explains on a level you understand. He doesn't just listen, he ACTIVELY listens, responds,AND he remembers discussions from previous appointments. I am extremely relieved that Dr. Stone, and his staff, are now in charge of my eye health. I am confident that he will take appropriate steps to insure that my eye care needs are met. "
