Bait & Switch.
I called and scheduled an appointment for a LASIK eye exam for 2pm on Wednesday, September 29th. I showed early, completed the paperwork and began the testing to see if I would be considered for LASIK surgery (I am a "great candidate"). Before the LASIK exam began, I clearly stated that I was there in response to the promotion in the Eugene Weekly advertising $495/eye LASIK surgery. After the testing was completed, the doctor (who was really nice) told me that the price of the procedure is $1,195/eye, to which I responded that I was only there for the promotional $495/eye price. She said that I wouldn't be able to get that price unless I scheduled the procedure on Friday, which I couldn't do because I need to not wear contacts for six days prior the surgery. So I left feeling like Joffe Medi-Center had wasted an hour and a half of my time testing, poking at and dilating my eyes (which really sucks, by the way). I'm a bicyclist and even got a Zipcar so I could make our scheduled appointment. I also left feeling like maybe I read the ad wrong. I took another look at the half-page ad in the Eugene Weekly (Volume 12, Issue 18 - Sept. 22-28) just a moment ago and in large, bold text it says, "Hurry! Call now for details! ACT BY OCT 31ST!" and is repeated in the footer of the ad. I acted on the ad by not only calling to schedule an appointment, but by coming in to get the LASIK eye exam. I would like to schedule the LASIK procedure at the advertised rate of $495 and eye.
The above is an email I sent to Joffe Medi-Center in hopes they would come around and give me the advertised rate. They responded by saying that they were sorry I didn't qualify for the $495/eye price, while the doctor said that I did qualify, but just couldn't schedule on Friday.
Happy patient!. I would recommend Joffe Medicenter to any of my friends or family that is looking to get Lasiks done. Great expierence friendly staff and best of all great price! All of the staff was willing to help with all of my questions all throughout the procedure and even days leading up to my surgery! 5 stars and Kudos to the team who helped me not have to wear glasses or contacts anymore!!
wonderful service and results!. this medi center is located in a beautiful building and the staff is very frendly and know what they're talking about when you have questions about the whole experience.
Don't wait!. Anyone who is even thinking about getting their vision corrected with LASIK stop thinking about it and call. My life has been changed dramatically! All of the little things I was jealous of other people about: sunglasses, sports, helmets, swimming
Great option for LASIK on a budget!. Overall, I had a great experience at Joffe. I was able to use a Star Tribune STEALS coupon and qualified for the least expensive treatment so the whole experience was definitely worth my while. Staff are very friendly and accommodating, and my results have been excellent!
BEST DECISION I EVER MADE. I absolutely love my lasik! It is one of the best decisions I've ever made! I now have 20/15 vision and I still can't believe that I don't have to wear my glasses or contacts anymore. Joffee Medicenter was the perfect place to get it done. The staff was very friendly and were willing to answer every question that I had to make me feel comfortable before and after the surgery. The surgery itself was so quick and painless and I was able to see right away. So if you are considering getting lasik i definitely recommend Joffe Medicenter.
