Everything is amazing about this place! The staff was professional, friendly and super kind. A technician that is called Micah was really enjoyable, friendly, professional and always with a smile in his face, I did really appreciate his positive attitude. The lady at the front desk, that helps my husband with his prescription, was awesome! I can't remember her name but she was really deeply patient with my (sometimes annoying) 10 years old daughter! The doctor that visited my daughter and my husband was great! He help us to find the best option to treat our daughter progressive myopia, his name is Matthew Durkin and he was awesome as the rest of the staff! Even my husband that usually doesn't make any comments about this kind of topics, congratulates with me because I choose this place! Everything was super clean and everybody was great! I do REALLY HIGHLY recommend this place!

                  All of the staff are competent, happy, and efficient. I believe the service that I got was outstanding. Everyone took the time to explain any questions I had, even if they might’ve thought they were silly. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the office. The location was easy to find. I will definitely be going back again!

                  I have been going to Dr. Malara for year's. Everyone there at the Fayetteville office is very professional and personal. Had another annual appointment today. Very thorough exam and Dr. Malara explained all of the results to my satisfaction and addressed my questions very well. I feel comfortable with him and all of his support staff.
