“Dr Gerlock did a great job as she always does, just a little behind appt. time she was on point, thorough but still made you feel she wanted to listen to any concerns I might have had. Kristine also(as usual) is a rock star. she treats myself, my partner and his developmentally disabled sister like we are personal friends even though we only see her a few times a year. she just has that kind of personality. she always lets me know different price points when looking at glass frames, etc., and looks out for my bottom dollar. How could I not share my vision care specialists with friends and colleagues? I do not mind traveling from Englewood to Aurora just to see them, even though they have different locations and probably one closer but I'm sticking with them.”

“Dr Thompson and her team are very helpful in dealing with the challenges that come with my eye problems. She takes the time to explain all of the information needed to make sure my contacts are used and cared for complete. New and updated technology in the office to help your eye sight is awesome!”

“Extremely friendly and professional staff. My last exam I had to bring my 2yo daughter with me, in the stroller. Everyone was incredibly accommodating to allow me to be able to take care of her as needs arose during the exam. Dr. Thompson is fantastic!”

I have been with Vision Care Specialists seeing Dr Gerlock since I was a kid.
“I have been with Vision Care Specialists seeing Dr Gerlock since I was a kid. They are always friendly, professional, and completely willing to bend over backwards to help you get what you need for your vision needs. The office is constantly investing in new and better technology, keeping up with research and development of new techniques as well as new developments in contact and glasses technology. The time between coming in for service and being helped is minimal but doctors, glasses fitters, front end staff and technicians will spend as much time with you as you need to have your questions answered and your concerns addressed.”

“This location has a great staff and selection of Frames. I happened to love my existing frames and wanted to reuse them this time around even though I was due for new frames and could have used my insurance to get a credit towards a new frame. The staff was great and tried to make it as easy as possible for me to keep the same frame and explained the differences in lenses and protection coatings. Very friendly staff and I will definitely keep coming to this location.”
“Mostly okay. I do have a concern which I detailed in #6 below. Your services are very expensive but I don't mind paying for professional service as long as I feel I am getting service equal to the prices.”
