Devers Eye Clinic Rating:
I've been using Devers for about 3 years now in Portland. They are a reliable if not outstanding organization. I haven't had any negative experiences with them, and my only reservation is a gut feel in terms of how they stack up to my preferred provider (Mountain View Optometry and Dr. K Schwederer). I just don't get the same vibe of extraordinary expertise and competence.
My typical requirement for an ophthalmologist is a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, but I had trouble finding active doctors taking patients in Portland that met this requirement. Devers was recommended, and I have no real complaints.
Again from a relative perspective the equipment and facilities are fine, but not as impressive as what I was used to in California. Dr. Rice is a fine doctor, and I haven't had any trouble scheduling appointments (which can be a real chore for specialist of any ilk). Prescription refills were timely and uneventful (although it still seems strange to leave a message on their machine inquiring about a refill, and then hearing back a couple of days later that it's refilled, all without actually talking to a human or specifying how many pairs of contacts to order).
Devers is certainly work considering if their NW location is convenient for you...
— His approach seems to be that this may be your only visit, and he'll take complete advantage in trying to ensure you're up to date on the latest data and practices to preserve your dermatological health.
— It's seems relatively simple - the luminescent hands on her wristwatch needed to be refurbished, but jeweler after jeweler would shrug and say "you should probably send that back to Cyma" or "I don't know, I could maybe order some new hands...".
