StarStarStarStarStar I would highly recommend Elburn Eye Care to anyone looking for an eye doctor. Dr. Montalbano and the entire staff at Elburn Eye Care provide excellent service using current / state of the art technology along with a thorough understanding of insurance plans. The office is well run, wait times are short, and the Dr. spends as much time with the patients as needed. I never feel like I'm being rushed out the door. Appointment availability / flexibility (day time or evenings) is also a plus. - Tara K.

Jan 2, 2016

StarStarStarStarStar In an era where true customer service seems to be lost behind the pursuit of profit I find Elburn Eyecare to be an island on the sea of lack luster service nowadays. Time and time again I find Elburn Eyecare and the entire support group treat me and my eye health as if it is their own. Dr Montalbano knows her stuff and rest assured you can trust your eye health and vision needs to her. Beyond that they all treat you like a person and not just a set of eyes to deal with. I feel their recommendations are what they would do if they were figuring out what to do for their needs. Lynn is awesome and always works hard for what I need to accomplish be it glasses or paperwork. Suzanne is very good at what she does and also cares for you as person. I have never had a negative experience here. They blend their high level of knowledge, true desire to serve you with kindness. -Robert B.
