I highly recommend Tatum Eyecare. My entire experience from my exam with Dr. Felton, whose both courteous and professional and selecting my glasses with Crystal, was superb! Crystal, was knowledgeable, informative and professional. I was in a frenzy to get new glasses, and find the right place to accommodate me since moving to Arizona. Crystal, from our initial conversation on the phone, made the entire process quite seamless. I will certainly come back for my next pair of designer glasses! Additionally, they offer a decent selection of designer frames as well!! Many thanks for a pleasurable experience!
Great doctor. Great staff. I travel from the far west valley to see Dr. Fuller.
I love everything about this place. Great Doctors and great staff. I have never had a problem in over fifteen years I think.
Started coming here 3 years ago; love this office. Staff and Dr are always so kind. Never have to wait and staff is fun and helpful when picking out new frames. I’ve already recommended them to my family. Really glad I chose them as my eye care office!
This is my second year of exams with Dr. Fuller. He has a great attitude and makes the exam experience very comfortable. I’ve had exams with many other doctors, and most of the time I feel as if I’m being hurried along and that my concerns or questions are not being addressed. This is not the case with Dr. Fuller, he’s attentive and takes the time to explain things and address my questions. In addition, the office staff is great as well, patient, helpful and understanding. As long as I live in the greater Phoenix area and he is in practice I will be returning to Dr. Fuller.
My son and I have been with you for years. Friendly accommodating service. You always go the extra mile to take care of us. The Dr.s and staff always make our visit personable, friendly. I carry your business cards to hand out.
Best experience ever. Really thorough doctor, really professional and kind staff. I’ll never go anywhere else. I’m already recommending them to friends.
Always professional and friendly. And if you need stuff like adjusting glasses or more lens cleaner fluid, they do it in minutes for free.
I had an amazing experience here! I received exceptional service from the optician Lily, who helped me find the right glasses that fit my big head. She also was very knowledgeable about their products, and made great recommendations for my high prescription. I appreciate all of her hard work and will definitely be back again next year. Also a very clean environment!
