“The doctor was awful, the staff were mean, and the place looks darker than a dungeon. Oh wait, this isn’t SpongeBob opposite day? Oh, I’m sorry. The staff is the best in the state, and the doctor is quite nice and thorough and informative. My entire experience was five-star a class one perfect. I will go there for the rest of my life.”

“As always, everybody was friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable with their job.”

“This is a very professional and friendly office. Dr. Winbigler did a wonderful job of fitting contact lenses that help my see close up without reading glasses. These contacts are great!”

“Thank you so much, Dr. Winbigler an Teresa for your expertise and patience in helping me with my new glasses!!!”

“Love my eye DR. WINBIGLER and love my new glasses I sure did need them. Sadly there no way I can aford sunglasses even with my old frames which I love you wanted 600.00 + hubby said there know way so I have to usey old ones that just sad cause I sti drive School bus. Which I love that I drive great kids.”

“Great, friendly service.”

“Excellent, friendly service.”

“The dr recommended some very expensive lenses but did not explain why I should consider them instead of some others. He did not ask me about many of the problem s I reported on the written form. I felt the eye exam was pretty thorough but no visual field test was done and one of the reasons I had come in was to have pressures checked.”

“Dr. Winbigler and his staff were so patient with me trying to achieve the right fit for my contacts. I now can see distance and up close with my contacts for astigmatism. I appreciate his expertise in making this happen! Thank you.”

“The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Overall, the practice provides a great customer service experience.”

“Dr. Winbigler has been great for our family. Our old optometrist kept saying our son’s prescription hadn’t changed every year, even though our son said he couldn’t see as well year-to-year. Since going to Eastgate, he says he can see quite well now. Dr. Winbigler is quite thorough and is one of those doctors who keeps abreast of newer breakthroughs in his profession. The office staff is equally awesome. We particularly love Angel, who has superseded fantastic customer service every single time we’ve seen her. Thanks for being great for the past two years that we’ve been clients. We don’t often leave reviews online, but felt it was appropriate in this case. I don’t like to leave personal details, so I’ll be posting anonymously, hoping this doesn’t detract at all from our review.”

“Always a wonderful and friendly, efficient experience visiting Eastgate Optical for any reason! The girls in there are fun and helpful and Dr.W. Is the best!”

“The staff were very courteous and helpful.”

“A little expensive but the customer service was outstanding.”

“I want to convey my sincere thanks to all the professionals at Eastgate Optical. Everyone on Dr. Winbigler’s staff was courteous and very knowledgeable as well as being very positive and appreciative to me as a customer. Dr. Winbigler was very attentive to my exact needs and he knew the formula for my professional needs. I will tell you without a doubt that of all the Optometrists I have visited over the years and the number is close to 10, I would say he is the very best. I am very happy that I went to Dr. Winbigler on the recommendation of Dr. Hollingshead. They are probably foremost in their prospective fields of eye care. I would certainly recommend Eastgate Optical to anyone who is looking for an excellent eye care provider. Sincere thanks and keep up the good work, Larry S.”

“My appointment as usual was very professional as well and warm and friendly. The young ladies there are always very informative and helpful. My time with Dr. Winbigler was great, he helps me with what he thinks is best for me and is very warm and welcoming. Of course I could not get the frames and help I need without Trina, she is my lifesaver and I appreciate all she does for me and my husband.”

This last time we did have to have my daughter go one dat with out her glasses but they were ready first thing the next morning and are fitting her better than ever. Thanks so much. Keep up the great work.”

“Great service, great doctor and great staff”

“I was promptly greeted and escorted to the examination room with no wait at all, however once in the Doctor’s office I waited for an excessive length of time for the Doctor. Then I was instructed to remove my contact lenses and find my way throughout the office blind. I waited forever to checkout with my lenses and frames as well as when I picked up my glasses and they were being cleaned. For a basic exam, I was there for 1.5 hours which is far longer than I’ve ever spent at an eye appointment. The staff was friendly and I was pleased with my final purchase, I just wished it didn’t take so long.”

“Great frame selection (all the stylish brands), and wonderful service.”

When one wears glasses every waking hour, things come up, and at Eastgate has my satisfaction has been their top priority.”

“Very friendly and knowledgeable staff with the latest technologies and product. I have been a customer for 18 years.”

“From start to finish, an outstanding experience. State -of-the-art equipment for the most precise eye exam available. Knowledgable, patient, and friendly staff – every one of them. I walked away from the experience with the best prescription I’ve had in years, not realizing until now how poor my other prescriptions were. Dr Winbigler was very thorough, and informative, and interested in serving my needs. Quality of the lenses and frames quite high. Having tried several other optometry clinics in Boise, this is now the only one I will go to. Highly recommended.”

“Friendly service, very informative, extremely helpful and professional.”

“I had a wonderful experience at Eastgate Optical. The doctor and staff were very friendly and informative about my eyes. Afton was amazing at helping me pick out the perfect frames. Thanks so much for being such a wonderful team!”

“Totally awesome place! The staff is friendly and fun and Dr. Winbigler is knowledgeable, thorough and patient. There’s a level of service, experience and knowledge that is simply not available in the big-box/express which, while cheaper, can really mess up your eyes.”

“Actual doctor not a mall optometrist. I am very “picky” about my vision and have always been corrected to at least 20-20 and sometimes 20-15. Been a patient for many years.”

“Friendly staff, optomotrist was friendly and explained everything. Coffee was good too”

“The staff and owners of Eastgate Optical are so wonderful and so professional. Thank you goes out to Dr. Winbigler, Angela Winbigler, Tina, Angel, Trina and April. You go above and beyond in everything you do and are so wonderful with me and my daughter Shayawna. I always tell people I know to go to Eastgate Optical because the people there are so wonderful. Thank you.”

“Great experience as always”

“Excellent service. Patients are seen on-time by very pleasant, caring and knowledgeable staff. There is a wide variety of frames to choose from for glasses. The facility is located near my home and parking is not a problem.”

“Everyone friendly and patient with me. Frames seem to cost more than other optical shops but appreciate the attentive service.”

“After the reaction from the last review, I broke my own rule and rated this time a five star. Hope this erases any misunderstandings and makes everyone very happy. Nothing like happiness to make ones day! As my son in law, it is easy to rate your performance. If you weren’t, it would still be easy!”

“as all ways the staff was great and my exam was very detailed,prices for this type of service are in line for what you get. However since my last exam I noticed that there is no longer a candy dish OF ANY KIND.???? just kidding”

“I always look forward to getting new glasses at Eastgate. The service is personable and professional.”

“great staff, always a good experience.”

“Terrific! Loved the special treatment!!”

“I have been going to Eastgate Optical for many years, and have always had a great experience. I had a contact change this year and was disappointed that I could not trade my sealed packs in for my new prescription as I have done in the past. I was told it was because of the new packaging, but when I got my new contacts, they were the old packaging. Now I’m stuck with 4 months worth of contacts that I cannot use. Craigslist maybe? eBay?”

“Very professional, very thorough, friendly. We won’t go anywhere else.”

“So much fun at the appointment as it was Halloween and the entire staff was welcoming & fun to be with. My kids were equally excited by the treats that were being handed out and the very relaxing atmosphere.”

“Great service as always. I’ve been struggling with my contacts and have been offered a few solutions to make sure that my eyes are comfortable and vision is maintained. They want to make sure that I’m happy. Also, great selection of glasses and very helpful service in helping me select the perfect frames.”

“Personal, attention to detail service.”

“Great care is provided by everyone at Eastgate. Great glasses and technicians to help you choose the best for your needs. Dr. Has the latest technology to evaluate your eyes and insure your medical needs are met. Office ladies are so sweet and cordial as is the whole staff. I highly recommend Eastgate Optical!”

“Polite, friendly service and they were able to get me in right away when I had a terrible allergic reaction in my eye to something.”

“My expectations were highly exceeded!”

“The office staff is friendly and Dr W is very helpful. Everything is explained thoroughly.”

“Very professional service, caring doctor and staff. I would recommend Eastgate Optical.”

“Wonderful experience. Always feel like the doc spends time going over any concerns I might have.”

“The office visit was ok. My appointment was September 22 and I still do not have my glasses – no one called me to tell me why – I called the office and was told there was a problem with the lenses. It would have been nice if office would have been proactive and called me. I still don’t know exactly what the problem is with the lenses and have paid half the cost with nothing in return. Very, very disappointing experience.”

“Excellent help from Theresa in picking out my new frames. I absolutely love them! The only thing that was discouraging was I asked for a discount due to the fact that I have purchased several glasses from your office. Approximately 7 years ago I bought a new pair of Silhouette’s with the leses that have everything but the kitchen sink on them! I also upgraded my sunglasses (also Silhouette’s) lenses with top of the line options. Six months ago I upgraded an old pair of Silhouette frames with new top of the line lenses and just last week I bought new Silhouette frames prompting this email to me. I guess loyalty doesn’t matter anymore. I will come back, but I am looking at other offices in the local area for future purchases.”

“Always a pleasurable experience with the staff and the Doctor. Has been quality for over 25 years.”

“The staff was very friendly and helpful as always. I didn’t have to wait long to see the doctor and they ordered my contacts immediately following the visit. They had my insurance information with coverage so they knew exactly what was covered and what I owed. It was a very pleasant experience.”

“The staff is Amazing very friendly and Dr. Winbigler is a great guy!”

“I am always pleased with the care I receive. The staff is very friendly and warm.”

“Dr. Winbigler and his staff are the best.”

“Initial visit was excellent; selected new frames and confirmed my prescription. Pick-up of new glasses didn’t go well. I returned the glasses in a couple of hours. One of the lens was made wrong due to clerical error by technician when sending my prescription to the lab. I suggest doing a quick eyechart check on each eye with new glasses on before patient leaves..”

“The staff was great and helpful and made my daughter enjoy her appointment. I have been going there for over 18 years!! Now I bring both my kids to see him”

“What a wonderful place to go. Everyone was so wonderful. Great receptionist greeting and Angel was super helpful at helping me pick out my frames. Great job everyone. I will recommend you to everyone.”

“My experience with Eastgate is typically excellent, however I came by toward the end of my lunch hour last week to for a pick up. It was just after 2:30 and a sign on the door said you would not be re-opening your offices until 3 pm. It was really inconvenient for me to drive all the way to that side of town.”

“Expensive but quality care. Friendly and helpful staff.”

“In the last couple of weeks three of my immediate family members have had appointments with Dr. Simonson and Dr. Winbigler.

I’ve since been to Eastgate several times, and each has been a positive experience. I’ve dealt with the office staff, the assistants, and both doctors and everyone is helpful and genuine. I once had to cancel an appointment on the day of, and Dr. Simonson called me personally to check on my condition. Haven’t “shopped around” much, but don’t need to and I highly recommend Eastgate Optical.”

The staff are friendly and patient, the providers are knowledgeable and kind. I look forward to my visits…there is a feeling of family at that office.

“Wonderful personal attention! Highly recommended.”

“Everyone was very helpful, professional and friendly from the minute I walked in the door!”

“For years I have been going to a different, very expensive, eye health provider. I hated the prices, but I was afraid to leave because they gave me the best service and products I could find.

At Eastgate Optical, they are really up on their technology, and Dr. Winbigler got us dialed in perfectly. I am seeing things I haven’t seen in years.
