Wow! I had lasik by Dr Loden about 20+ years ago and had perfect vision until recently, so I needed to start going back for exams (normal - lasik isn't forever). I went to a different eye doctor for a few years and just not thrilled with the level of knowledge and care. Finally decided to explore other doctors and was pleased to learn that Dr Loden now had clinics for routine eye exams or specialty issues such as concerns about detached retina, etc. So I booked an appointment to see if this worked for me. First impression was how clean the clinic was (Gallatin) and the layout was spacious and comfortable. The receptionists were so friendly with the greatest smiles! So welcoming! We spent a good time just chatting about life in general. Checked me in and I waited a short time for the nurse/tech to call me back and still all smiles. I already had a great impression. The nurse/tech went through everything that would happen missing no details. If I asked questions she couldn't (or shouldn't answer), she politely mentioned to ask the doctor when he came in. I respected that! The doctor came in (Dr Parker) and he was warm, welcoming, professional, had a kind smile and very friendly. Extremely knowledgeable and I immediately knew this was my new doctor and my new clinic. Shook my hand again on the way out and then I met with the tech at the glasses/contacts section. She was so incredibly kind and helpful. Went above and beyond and educated me on contacts after lasik and was even kind enough to let me try a few pair so I could find the right pair. No questions asked. I have nothing but amazing things to say about this clinic, the staff and everyone I had an encounter with. I highly recommend Loden vision centers if you are looking for a reputable eye doctor. Dr Parker and his staff are fantastic. Thank you to everyone there. I've had a particularly rough week and suffered a few losses and your kindness meant everything.
