How was your experience with the doctor?Easy visit, the assistant clearly explained everything as this was my first time going to an eye doctor. When Dr Rudick recommended a test, we found out insurance may not cover it and because I wasn’t expecting a large out of pocket expense, and it wasn’t life or death, the staff was gracious and didn’t pressure me to pay out of pocket. They invited me to return as I was able to have the test if I wanted to.

How was your experience with the doctor?Absolutely love Dr. Rudick and the entire staff at Associate Ophthalmologists. I've been going to Dr. Rudick for over a decade ever since I badly scratched my cornea and another, not so great doctor and practice were of little help. Most recently I was asking Dr. Rudick about what seemed to be allergy related or chronic dry eye and he suggested trying collagen punctal (tear duct) plugs. He has them himself, and told me that they prevent the lower duct from draining which helps with Dry-Eye. They've made all the difference in the world these past 3 months! I first had them implanted back in August right as Ragweed season was starting up. Usually August into September is brutal for my poor eyes. This year? Not a single instance of dry or inflamed eyes. The plugs helped keep my eyes from drying out and allowed me to just about forget about ragweed season for a change. The collagen kind dissolve in about 3 months and need to be replaced, and I'm willing to deal with 30 seconds of discomfort every quarter for the benefits I get.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Rudick was friendly and professional. Overall a very brief meeting: he reviewed the file with the tests and work completed by the technicians; asked if there were any problems or questions; explained key results; and said see you next year. The technicians were nice and the appointment took a little over an hour.

How was your experience with the doctor?Mary at reception is amazing! I had changed my last name and insurance since my previous visit (and of course forgot to update with the dr.), but Mary was very patient and went out of her way to make sure I was fully set up in the system. Dr. Rudick and team are very efficient and communicative.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Rudick is amazing. He assessed my situation and answered my questions about his LASIK procedure without pressuring me to trying to sell anything. He genuinely cares that we found the right treatment for me. The LASIK surgery was very quick and he was encouraging and talked me through the whole thing. In the next day checkup he wanted to be absolutely sure everything was working well, so had me come in a week later in addition just to be positive. Staff is super knowledgeable about all of their equipment and the tests that used to be horrible to go through are all top of the line digitized scans. Just great, I’ll always go to him!

How was your experience with the doctor?I got there 30 minutes before the appointment as suggested by the website and waited until 10 minutes after my appointment to see the doctor. I saw two people before the doctor who did all the tests. The doctor came in, talked to me for 2 minutes, looked at my eyes and left.

How was your experience with the doctor?I would not recommend Dr. Rudick and his team to ANYONE after going through a highly frustrating experience following my annual eye examination. I had an appointment with Dr. Rudick after I noticed my vision was getting blurry. I wear contact lenses, and at the time of my eye examination, I did not have my previous contact lens prescription with me. Dr. Rudick was aware that I did not have this information, and proceeded to test my vision while I was wearing my contact lenses. He told me to call the office with my prescription and he would then update my prescription per my examination. I called the following day to provide the information, and spoke to an incredibly rude receptionist who hung up on me after I provided my information and asked when I can expect to have an updated prescription. I called a week later to follow up, and spoke to someone else who looked at my file and said that no previous prescription information was ever recorded. I provided my prescription information again, and was told I would be emailed an updated prescription. I continued to follow up on a weekly basis, but each time I spoke with someone, I was never able to get an updated prescription. Finally, a month and a half later, I was told that I would need to have another examination in order to get an updated prescription. My experience with this office has been an inconvenience as well as an enormous waste of my time. I will never make an appointment here again.

How was your experience with the doctor?I give this "company" credit for having the move-the-patient-through-the-process down pat, although the wait time to get the process started is long. The time with Dr. Rudick is abrupt; I tried twice (mostly due to the fact that the location is convenient). A few fast clicks, a prescription, then off to the next patient. No discussion, no explanation. This does not seem like a thorough exam. I got the impression it is all about getting as many patients through as possible each day, regardless of whether or not they ever come back. I will try elsewhere.

How was your experience with the doctor?I've been a patient of Dr. Ruddick's since he took over this practice. He did a phenomenal job performing a Lasik on my eyes, that gave me 20/20 (or better) vision for over 10 years. He's patient and thorough during regular eye exams.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Rudnick and his staff, from the front desk to the technicians, are very friendly and efficient. You are moved from one room/test to another with such ease. Each test is explained in detail and any questions patiently answered. When I registered upon my arrival and handed over my insurance and ID, the woman at the front desk, I believe her name was Mary, was so helpful in explaining my insurance situation, saving me a potential issue down the road.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my first visit. I very much appreciated Dr. Rudick and his staff. I had a new Vision Plan and was nervous about being charged extra fees on my Medical Plan. So I called his office and the staff was very patient and understanding. The assistant put me at ease by double checking and confirming that my Vision Plan would indeed cover my annual vision visit. When I got to the office, the staff made it very clear to me if what types of procedures would be charged under the medical plan. I appreciate the staff's clarity and high level of customer service. Will definitely come back.
