A Message from Dr. Soltys

“I believe in patient-centric care from the moment you call for your appointment to the handshake you get at the end of your visit. What does patient-centric care mean? To the patient? To the facility? To the care team? You might wonder why a medical office would need to be reminded that the center of its focus should be the patient. In fact, one would think healthcare would be the industry with the most compelling reasons to embrace a strong patient service focus. Unfortunately, as the industry grows more complex and convoluted, providers feel the pressure to see more patients in less time. The care becomes centered around the needs of the system at the expense of the patient. At Barton Creek Eyecare, our primary focus is on the patient’s total experience from personal preference, family situations, health issues, cultural issues and general convenience. At our practice, please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your experience a more comfortable and enjoyable one.”

Followed Dr. Mock here from her prior practice and I’ve been to this office twice for appointments. They are usually able to fit me in at the last minute and I appreciate the time that’s taken with my endless questions. I never feel rushed and the staff has always been professional. I also like that unneeded services aren’t pushed on me. I’ll continue to return!

Made an appointment over the phone to get a glasses exam. I showed up and was led into the exam room. The tech that was helping me was very engaging and friendly. She asked about the last time I had seen a Dr. Through her conversation, we discovered that I likely already had an active prescription. A quick phone call to verify, and just like that, I was told that I didn’t need to spend any more money, I could go next door to order my glasses with my existing prescription.Bottom line, they saved me a lot of money by being honest. They didn’t have to do what they did…but they did it…and seemed happy to help.I’m a customer for life.Thank you!

I love this place! Always so nice and helpful, from the receptionist to the eye doctor. This is why I came back for my 2nd year 🙂

I’ve been trying to get an appointment to get contacts, and it’s been a huge pain in the butt… everywhere except here! The scheduling process was fast and smooth, everyone who I interacted with was friendly (even when I was super frustrated about an insurance debacle), and I’m very happy with my new contacts. My doctor, Susan Elizondo, was super sweet and made me feel at ease. Denise was AMAZING. When I was calling around to different offices to make an appointment, one of the offices (Quality Vision Eyewear) pulled and was holding my insurance hostage (even though at no point did they mention this, nor did I even make an actual appointment with them). She spent an insane amount of time tracking down information for me and calling my insurance company, and was very patient throughout the process. The prices were very reasonable (even if you don’t have insurance) and they were very open about telling me the prices up front, which I appreciate. When places are ambiguous and can’t even give you a loose estimate, it sends up a red flag for me.I would definitely recommend this office to a friend.

BC eye care has a great new doctor – Dr. Duc Tran! I had some questions this year about a “floater” in my eye and Dr Tran was clear and careful and reassuring. He is kindly and expert, and talks to patients like they are curious and smart. I will ask for him every time I return. A great experience.

I came in for a regular eye exam (my lord, it’s been about a decade) and found it to be a pleasant experience. Patrycja was super helpful and patient with me, I really appreciated that! Dr. Sotlys was really professional and answered all my questions. Definitely will come back if I need my eyes checked again! Splendid experience! 🙂

I came in for a regular eye exam. Everything from scheduling to getting in to see the doc was quick and easy. All the staff were pleasant and have been helpful any time I’ve called for followup questions/requests.

Fast and friendly service. I haven’t been to the eye doctor and over four years and was very pleased with up-to-date equipment and methods used during my exam and at the friendliness of the staff. My doctor seemed very knowledgeable and willing to explain things to me.
