Dr. Brisco is truly amazing and very knowledgeable in her Vision field. She is very detailed and make sure that all of your eyecare is fullfilled. I did not realize how up to date her office was until I went there. Compared to my old optometrist, Dr. Brisco did a full through examination of my eyes and check for any type of disorders. I went there to get a new prescription on my glasses and contacts and got them within 2-3 days. My vision is now very sharp and clear compared to my old glasses. Furthermore, It was very fast service! and her staff is SOO friendly. Sharon helped me with picking out my frames and her stylish opinion was very well-recieved! They do look really great with my face structure!

Highly recommended, look forward to comiing back again. =)

Pros: Great service!!

Cons: lack of parking, but there are 2hrs spaces

This place is just awesome. I had my appointment on a day when Dr. Brisco actually wasn't there, but I saw the associate, Dr. Shokouh, who is a really nice doctor. I did wait a bit, but that was because it was a busy day and they make sure to give each patient enough time with the doctor. So when it was my turn, I didn't feel like the appointment was rushed at all, unlike at other places I've been to. I had time to ask all my questions (and boy, did I have a lot, especially about switching to soft contact lenses). Dr. Shokouh patiently answered all of them and even let me try on some soft lenses as trials, to see if next time I might start wearing them instead of the current hard ones I'm wearing. My first experience with soft lenses was pretty bad - it took me 10 minutes to take them out, so I decided to forget about soft lenses. Dr. Shokouh changed all that when she taught me this cool trick on how to take them out - and I did it in a few seconds! I also learned a few tips on how to properly exercise my eyes each day, especially since I spend a lot of time on computers. Overall, the service was helpful and friendly, and I am definitely coming here again. Oh yea, I had some time to take a look around before my appt and they have quite a big selection of frames/sunglasses.

Pros: Professional, hi-tech, unrushed appts, friendly docs

Cons: No parking validation, might wait a bit

.

Not only is the establishment gorgeous. with a huge selection of frames, Dr. Brisco genuinely cares for me as a patient. I don't feel like a customer as much as I do an old friend when I go see her each year. The staff has changed over the years, but it seems as though Dr. Brisco has made it a point to ensure that they provide great service to the best of their abilities. I have recommended Dr. Brisco to all my friends and family and will continue to see her for my eye care as the years go on.

I went to get my eyes checked at this office recently and I was surprised how I was treated. As I walked in, immediately I was greeted with smiling receptionists welcoming me in. I was taken in for pretesting by the technician, very kind lady. During my examination, I felt Dr. Brisco was very educated, she was very thoroughal with answers to questions I had about my vision and very kind. They use the latest technology in their office. I would recommend this doctor to my friends and family.

The moment you walk in, you are greeted by the wonderful staff. They take time to answer any and all of your questions. Dr. Brisco is especially an expert in her field. Definitely Recommended... you will be in wonderful hands!

There's an element of humor as to how awful this business is . . . it's not one or two that make it unpleasent, it's nearly everything. If you have an appointment at 3, don't bother showing up until 3:45. At that point you'll be taken into a back room room by one of several un-educated employees who won't even have the info you've been filling out in the waiting room. She'll take multiple pictures of your eyes (missing a few times) and often forget what she's doing. I took my contacts out, and then back in 3 times because she didn't know how to fill out the pre-exam paperwork. I would also like to note that the little chin and forehead rest on ALL of the equipment is un-clean: it's oily, has make-up, and fallen facial hairs. When I finally got to Dr. Brisco, I pushed her equipment away and asked her if she minded wiping the gunk off of it. After the exam, I ordered a year supply of contacts, 2 weeks later I called wondering where they were. Even though my card was charged within minutes, they forgot to put the order in. When I went to eventually pick them up I had to wait 25 minutes just for that. If you enjoy spending more time than you thought incredibly upset at an un-professional staff after sticking your head in someone else's face grease . . . you've found your eye doctor!

I seriously can not believe how terrible of an establishment this place is. I've tried to give them the benefit of the doubt but they always manage to surprise me with how bad of a job they can do. The work ethic at this place is unbearable. They tell you one thing and will blatantly lie to your face. They will lie about when your glasses will be ready, not call you back, ruin your order, try to screw you over on fixing the ruined product, not call you back, promise you a deal, and then overcharge you and swindle you with handwritten, improperly calculated receipts. I would say maybe I got unlucky, but this has happened more than a couple times. Why did I keep going back? Because they ruined my daughter's order countless times; so I still had to deal with them for months - trying and trying to get them to fix their admitted mistakes and to give me ONE pair of glasses that were actually correct. Months of lies, terrible service, and terrible products. And Dr. Brisco will never herself get involved with correcting an order. Dr. Brisco has a network of incompetent, lazy, lying and morally corrupt individuals working under her, so she can just sit back and enjoy the terrible establishment her place has become. Final Words of Advice: Save yourself the time, money, and grief by avoiding this place at all costs!!!

Cons: Run by incompetent & terrible staff with no work ethics.

I am really surprised by some of the negative comments here. I have never been treated with so much care and efficiency by any doctor in my life!!!! Yes she has the newest equipment and the SKILLS to back it up!!! Dr. Brisco fit me with Ortho K contact lenses to help me see 20/20 without my glasses. I didn't want surgery, and didn't like wearing glasses or contacts all the time. She is the only doctor that I saw who wasn't pushy about having surgery done. When I told her I didn't want to have surgery on my eyes, she recommended Ortho K which is like a retainer for your eyes. I sleep with these special lenses, and in the daytime I can see 20/20 without any help. IT's GREAT... and I didn't have to go under the knife!!! Thanks Dr. B : )

.

I must say i agree with everyone saying that this doctor is the most competent EYE doctor i have ever seen. Confident and knowledgeable. However i felt it was VERY impersonal when she kept working on her computer and typing stuff as she was doing the exam(i guess everything in her office is electronic and computerized). Very little eye contact and lots of computer work. I also felt these were extra tests that were ordered with out asking me if it was ok since there was a huge bill at the end that supposedly my medical insurance will reimburse only AFTER i have paid Dr.Brisco!!!!! Why was I not informed about charges?
She did not even hand me a prescription, it was printed in the front desk and i felt it was all too impersonal and robotic. Charges were not explained to me, and....never paid this much for parking. With the charges they come up with, they should validate parking.

Pros: competent eye doctor

Cons: being over charged with out explanation. The computerized files made the exam impersonal and robotic

We've been taking our son to Dr. Brisco since he was born. Our son has a global developmental delay, and other eye doctors didn't know what to do for him. Dr. Brisco has been innovative and thoughtful in her approach to our son. She has prescribed stimulation exercises that we do at home with him. Now he can make eye contact, and follow a target after just a few weeks of following her treatment plan. We are thankful for her compassion in taking care of our son, and everything she's done for us.

I don't like going to the eye doctor because I have a phobia about my eyes. Over the years Dr. Brisco has been so kind and gentle with me that I trust her with my eyes and my family's eyes also. She tells me everything she is going to do before she does it, and makes me feel comfortable. She's one of the best eye doctors around, and I'm so glad to be one of her loyal patients.

This is one of the best doctor's visits I've ever had, of any type of doctor. The staff was caring and efficient, and Dr. Brisco was knowledgeable and professional. They also had the best selection of glasses (I got 4 pairs!) with prices that are better than Lenscrafters. I'll definitely be back for my next eye exam.

Best customer service, best prices on frames and Dr Brisco is the best optometrist in LA...hands down. She was the only doc able to get me through a whole day without headaches looking at my computer. Two ophthalmologists and one other "big" practice optometrist did absolutely NOTHING....made me worse. She was able to fill my lense prescription properly and the staff was GREAT!!

I just had to write this review to say that my experience at the Hollywood Vision Center was great the whole way. The staff is caring and friendly, Dr. Brisco is very knowledgeable. She is the first Optometrist that prescribed glasses that didn't feel too strong for me. She let me try on the prescription before they made my glasses, to make sure I was comfortable with it. They have a beautiful office and tons of frame styles to choose from. Since I waited until the last minute to get my glasses before my trip, I was in a hurry, but my glasses were done a day early from when they promised them. I felt like everyone cared about my well being, and worked together to make sure they delivered as promised.

I'm not even going to bore you with my story with these people....just trust me on this. I understand that mistakes can happen, but this is about absolutely horrible customer service if the slightest thing goes wrong (and it just might), but don't ever try to conduct any business with this place. Find someone else and save yourself some trouble!

After supplying me with the wrong prescription and charging me the most anyone has for new lenses, they wanted to charge me again for a new prescription and lenses! I guess being a client for 20 years means nothing to dr. brisco and her staff. I highly recommend finding someone else.

I've been seeing Dr. Brisco over the last 15 years, and I want to let everyone know how wonderful her and her staff are. They have always taken such good care of me, and now my children and husband. She really listens to us, and seems to really care about our vision problems, and about us as a family. Her staff is friendly and we enjoy picking out our glasses with them (they have wonderful glasses, and are reasonably priced!)

One year I went to another optometrist when I was out of town, but the prescription I got wasn't as good as Dr. Brisco's: it was too strong and made me dizzy. This made me appreciate Dr. Brisco even more when I moved back to LA. I like her philosophy. She always tells me that she is a holistic doctor; therefore, she gives me the smallest amount of prescription that I need. I like a doctor who is sensitive to my needs.

She has a beautiful office, and has an acupuncturist, chinese medicine, and internist in her office. I just think that she is the best doctor around. She is progressive, she gives us good advice to keep healthy, and we really appreciate having doctors like Dr. Brisco.

I have been searching for a reason for why my vision is not as good as it was before I had LASIK. Even my surgeon couldn't answer the question. I was referred to Dr. Brisco by a friend who raved about how great she and her office are, so I thought I'd go there for my eye exam. Within 3 minutes of hearing my story about how I have glare at night, she explained, in plain english, how LASIK had affected my vision. She also prescribed the BEST glasses I have had in years.

They have an awesome selection of frames, with great prices. They have their own lab, so I got my glasses in 2 days. I just want to say that it was the best experience I've ever had at an eye doctor's office, and I'm so glad to have found a doctor who understands difficult problems.

Months of trips-back-and-forth -to-the-office later, I have the worst pair of glasses I've ever had. I cannot see well; they broke the hinge on the $300 frames I supplied (I paid the outside vendor to repair them); workmanship was shoddy -- ( lenses looked like they'd been chewed to fit frames, 2nd time not much better); lab twice got the lenses wrong; but worst of all, the doctor has completely isolated herself from her patients, with staff intercepting calls, mail, voicemail, and email. After many sessions with office staff, I demanded to see my doctor and was told it would cost me an additional $130.

I research everything before I do it... shopping, travel, etc., but especially medical advice. Dr. Brisco was referred to me by several people as the best eye doctor in town. I was also told that she is known as the "eye doctor to the stars", since a lot of celebrities see her... After finding out that she is on staff at Cedars, completed 2 Fellowships, and has been active in sports medicine for major teams as well as extensive research in vision therapy, I chose to see her with my family's problems. My daughter was not doing well in school and hated to read. Dr. Brisco diagnosed her as having a vision problem in tracking and after several months of vision therapy, she is getting straight A's and I always see her with a book in her face. Our previous eye doctor (an Ophthalmologist) said she just needed glasses which were completely the wrong prescription!!! As for myself, I hadn't been able to wear contacts for over ten years because I use a computer all day. No other doctor could get my prescription correct or took the time to completely treat me. She diagnosed me not only with her state of the art equipment, but with data about my diet and lifestyle. I'm finally seeing 20/20 again with contacts and working great on the computer. She is incredible and her staff is wonderful. The office is state of the art and has a spa-like feel. They sell all the best frames for way better prices than you'll find down the street in Beverly Hills.... Can't say enough good things about her... she changed our lives.

Dr. Elise Brisco is an extremely competent and caring doctor. However, over the years, I have seen her office change from being an inviting and carefree environment to a money-hungry place where eye care is only secondary to how many products and services can be sold. As a matter of fact, what prompted me to write this review is because of a letter from her office that stated how she's integrating mental and physical health into her practice by offering cardiology, chinese herbology, and plastic surgery (how does plastic surgery have anything to do with one's health?). I found it bizarre to say the least, especially considering the fact that I always had a bill of a $1,000 dollars or more for services I never requested and for items that I was forced into buying. Now, on top of eye care services, I would be charged for a forced consultation with the herbologist and plastic surgeon. Maybe, I'm too timid, but with a staff like Dr. Briscos, it's hard to be firm. And when problems do arise, don't expect good customer service. When I had a problem and attempted to talk with Dr. Brisco, I was repeatedly blocked and snubbed by her assistant. After 14 years of patronage, I never went back again.

Dr. Elise Brisco is an extremely competent and caring doctor. However, over the years, I have seen her office change from being an inviting and carefree environment to a money-hungry place where eye care is only secondary to how many products and services can be sold.

I have been wearing contacts since the 4th grade and have been to more eye doctors than I count. My work takes me around the country and between allergies and overuse of my contacts I have been to many a new doctor in whatever city I happen to find myself. I have never enjoyed a Vision Clinic and Doctor better than Hollywood Vision Center. The staff seemed to be mostly women who were all helpful, cheerful, and efficient. Doctor Brisco is incredibly qualified and has a wonderful open ease about her. She answered all my questions and didn't rush the appointment at all. She is interested in treating the whole body/whole patient, and spoke to me about my lifestyle, diet, previous eye history and current work. I am so happy to have found her and her office- I can't express how fortunate I feel.

Pros: location and parking, beautiful office, helpful staff

Dr. Brisco is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. She is knowledgeable (she's completed 2 fellowships, and is on staf at Cedars Sinai), and cares so much about her patients.

I was referred by a friend because my eyes were red and dry. After the most thorough eye exam I ever had, she fit me with a new type of lens that allows more oxygen to my eyes. She also prescribed foods and supplements to keep my eyes healthy, as well as an eye wash to flush out LA smog and pollution.

2 weeks later: my eyes are whiter than they've ever been. The best part, is because my eyes are no longer "swollen", I can watch TV without any lenses on, and see better than I did before.

Her office looks like a spa, and her staff was very helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Brisco.

Pros: State of the art, Caring, Knowledgeable

This was my first visit since the office moved and staff has changed. I love Dr. Brisco, however her staff and office operations are awful. In my attempts to discuss this with Dr. Brisco her staff either intervenes or she does not want to get involved. The events are as follows: I waited 2 hours for my glasses when I was told 20 minutes, the lenses they replaced popped out of the frame, when I took the frames back the tech talked through the receptionist while standing on the other side of a glass partition instead of talking to me directly, the frames were not fixed when they said they'd be finished causing me an additional trip to their office, the office opened 25 minutes late when I went back for my follow up exam, finally I had to call 4 times before they mailed me my contact lense prescription.

Cons: no parking validation, long wait, no follow through
