I have been using the services of Dr BG Shily for almost two decades and I can say I am a very satisfied and pleased customer. Dr Shily not only has conveniently located offices in central Beverly Hills but parking is good, quick and efficient as well. His offices are modern, smart and capacious with a cool, elegant feeling and his office workers are friendly, helpful and attractive. Once inside the exam rooms, Dr Shily works with a level of professionalism rarely seen in the optometry business with comforting, carefully paced and thorough service that addresses any and all issues (even the most sensitive) with a remarkably personal and reassuring touch. I am always impressed and pleased with this level of highly personal service offered by Dr Shily and it leaves a lasting and positive impression.

It should also go noted that Dr Shily goes considerably far out of his way to serve his customers' needs. Recently, when I was suffering from a particularly painful cut cornea, Dr Shily drove all the way to my neighborhood and home in Pacific Palisades to personally deliver an eye ointment to me that was unavailable during my crisis at CVS Pharmacy. I was shocked to find him there and waiting for me after 9pm on a worknight, having driven to me all the way from his office. I have never once in my 40 years of going to doctor's offices, experienced this level of customer care and commitment. Rare indeed--and most welcome at a time when I was suffering. I thank Dr Shily again for his mission--- in this review...

Mostly, I remain impressed and touched by the level of deep and effective personal care offered in Dr Shily's office. He has treated me exceptionally well over the years and I have perfect vision (both with my soft contacts and various glasses he's provided) thanks to Shily's ongoing supervision of my ever changing vision needs. I can most enthusiastically recommend the services of this good man and good eye doctor to anyone needing the best in refined and highly professional eye care.

I am a patient with Keratoconus with poor vision. I was originally scheduled to have surgery by my doctor, but he suggested I try custom contact lenses with Dr Shily. Needless to say, 7 years later I still have not had a need for surgery as Dr Shily has fitted me with perfect lenses every time. Every time I schedule an appointment I never have to wait long and he even has appointments on Saturdays, which is important to me since I work M-F job. I live in the city of Downey which is not the closest to his office but, the drive is worth it for me as I feel I am getting the best care possible for my eyes. Highly recommended.

I have been seeing Dr Shily for almost 5 years and I honestly couldn't think of anything negative to say about his practice. He is an outstanding optometrist. For me it's imperative to see someone who understands my eyes because I have a rare eye disease called Keratoconus. I can't imagine anyone else to have less then a great experience with Dr Shily and I always pass his name along to my friends with confidence. Obviously vision is one of the most important things to take care of in life so a good eye doctor is a must have. I'm sure I won't need to see anyone else for a long time.

I recently had to wait very long to be seen at my OLD optometrist here in Pasadena, and a friend recommended Dr. Shily to me, I was leery about going to Beverly Hills to see an optometrist, but I work close and I decided to give it a shot.

First and formost, I have NOTHING but good things to say about this place, from the second I walked in I was greeted and treated like they actually WANTED my business (sometimes my old optometrist in Pasadena would treat me like a number, they literally would call you out by the number ticket they gave you...really??)

Anyway, Dr. Shily saw me very fast and listened to me talk about my worries with my vision deteriorating. He did inform me that I MIGHT have the early stages of glaucoma (something my old Dr. NEVER told me about). I have a family history of poor vision and my Sis is legally blind, so this is nothing to take lightly, I am glad he took the time to sit down and explain to me what happens and what could be done if it IS glaucoma. Thanks Doc..

Anyway, from the second I walked in I was impressed with this place, my new lenses are better than ever before, and I didn't have to pull a second mortgage to pay for my services (MAJOR plus)

Overall, Dr. Shily has top honors in my book, he answered every question I needed answered and did it without making me feel rushed or bothersome..

Agree with Dara, I don't know how this guy runs a business. Not only is he shady, but he has a bad temper, he is always late and makes patients wait ffor 30 mins while he is on the phone, he talks down to his staff and patients. I have actually heard him yell at his staff, and patients when they disagreed with him, very unprofessional, I will not be coming back!! no wonder why he has a new girl/ staff coming in every week. In addition to the horrible time I had, and the over priced exam, I could smell his repulsive body odor from a mile away, for gods sake take a shower!! STAY AWAYYY

have been seeing Dr. Shilly since I was a child. He is the only doctor that could diagnose and treat a rare eye condition that I have. He has always seen me in a timely manner, even on short notice. He is the utmost professional. He has always made sure that I was happy with my glasses and contacts before I left. Even if that means return visits, exchanges and reevaluations. He is also a highly respected researcher who is always looking into the future of eye care technology. His office is very cutting edge and professional. He has always treated me and my family like his own family. I would recommend him to anyone who wants the best doctor in the LA area.

Dr. BG Shily and Dr. Henry Oster at Visioncare Associates have been my eye care professionals since 1987. Dr. Oster has since retired and Dr. Shily has been treating my keratoconus and astigmatism, and fitting me with specialized contact lenses for about ten years. I don't think I could trust any other doctor for this. Dr. Shily's knowledge and experience, his state-of-the-art equipment and detail-oriented approach, and especially the amount of time he spends with me as a patient, is I think unique in today's medical world of "let's get more patients in and out the door and don't forget to ring the cash register on their way out."

The office is state-of-the-art new, the atmosphere always relaxed yet professional; I never feel rushed and I never have to wait and wait. And Dr. Shily himself is down to earth and very easy to talk to as well as a good listener.

The bottom line is that I can't say enough about Visioncare Associates. Through them, and through Dr. Shily's meticulous efforts to fit me with the right contact lenses, I have been able to achieve and maintain excellent vision over the years and have been able to keep in check my very serious degenerative eye condition.

Thank you, Dr. Shily and thank you, Dr. Oster! Always your friend.

I was referred to Dr.Shily years ago by the Jules Stein institute at UCLA... they said he was the best doctor in town for hard contact patients like me. And they were absolutely right!

I have the worst eyesight and Dr.Shily has proven to me that he will work with me to make sure I see as well as possible. He has had incredible patience with me. Many other doctors would have given up on me but he never did, and I am so grateful to have him as my doctor.

Dr. Maloney who performs lasik surgery told me I was not a canditate for that procedure but he confirmed that I was in the best hands with Dr.Shily and that he too would recommend Dr.Shily to anyone with hard contatct lenses and difficult eyesight.

I highly recommend Dr.Shily. He has great chairside manners and its makes me feel safe to be under his care. 5 Stars! no doubt!

If I could give zero stars, I would. While as an optometrist Dr. Shily is competent, the businesses practices of the office are deplorable. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you visit this office.

To make 18 months of long stories very short:
1. I was pressured into very expensive alternative contact lenses not covered by my insurance (but I later learned that this office had a partnership with the company) using fear and intimidation. I have extremely poor eyesight and was essentially told "you will never be able to see effectively without these." It scared me, and I agreed.

2. It took three months for them to deliver the lenses. In the meantime, I had to purchase another pair of expensive contact lenses to replace my existing ones.

3. When it had been a year since I last saw Dr. Shily, his office staff began calling me for a follow-up. Over the last two months I have received at least two telephone calls per week. Six weeks ago I indicated that I did not want to make an appointment, but they have continued to call me twice a week.

4. (THE WORST, and potentially ILLEGAL). I found a new optometrist and made an appointment. When the new office was confirming my insurance information, they saw that I was locked out from my yearly benefits because Dr. Shily's office had filed not one but TWO authorization requests for services that I did not receive. I had not been to his office since May 2010, but they had requested authorization in August of 2010 and again in August of 2011. I immediately contacted my insurance company, who contacted Dr. Shily's office. At first they refused to speak with the insurance agent, then said they'd check to see whether I had actually been seen and get back to her. Finally, when pressed, they admitted that they had asked for authorization but that I had not received any services from them on either date.

I'm saddened because Dr. Shily took over this practice from an optometrist that I have been seeing since I was a child. DO NOT GO HERE.

I was recommended to Dr. B.G. Shily at Visioncare Associates, and he was wonderful this morning. I was way overdue for an eye exam and he was so thorough with the testing, trying to find the best contact lenses to fit my eye, and showing me great new advances in both contact lenses and glasses. I don't have vision insurance, like most people, but he's going to try and run the exam cost through my regular insurance, and he was reasonable in pricing my new glasses lenses, which is much appreciated by the younger, less affluent crowd that I run in. He was VERY patient in fitting me with the right lense with the perfect strength - trying out 3 in each eye which is FAR beyond what any other doctor has ever done for me before. The willingness of any doctor to listen to ME and work with ME on fulfilling my needs towards better living is essential and Dr. Shily was very thoughtful and friendly, as well as thorough. I highly recommend him, even if his regular support staff is a bit spacey.

PROS: Amazing personal attention and patience - rare in any kind of doctor!
CONS: There is a spacey assistant who books appointments and isn't too bright.
