I am very happy I chose this optometrist as my new eye doctor. Everyone is super friendly, thorough and attentive. I really appreciate Dr. Joseph McGowan for answering ALL my questions and concerns. He would explain everything until I understood since I am switching to hard contacts vs soft contacts. I also am grateful for Lauren Garcia because she has an EYE for glasses. She chose the PERFECT pair of glasses for me that all the other ones I tried on were no good for me. I will certainly be coming back and refer friends and family to them.

Lovely place! From the moment I stepped in I was greeted by friendly people.

I've been seeing Dr McGowan for so many years I can't even remember. My husband goes to him as well, and my daughters beginning in elementary school. I appreciate his knowledge, information and advice, his willingness to listen and answer questions, and his friendliness and sense of humor! I always feel comfortable talking with Dr McGowan and never feel like he's trying to "get out the door". His staff is also very competent, helpful and friendly...great customer service!

Dr. McGowan is an excellent professional. Everything to do w/my cataract surgery before & after was flawless, from the testing to the follow-up, and, the follow-up's follow-up. His recommendation of eye surgeon was absolutely the best in Austin Texas and that was the kicker. The only anxiety I ever had was the realization that I had cataracts and needed surgery in the first place. I couldn't have been luckier in choosing Mr. McGowan. He's the best.

Best eye doctor ever! Love this staff.


StarStarStarStarNo Star Very nice staff but lack in other areas —    (Patient since Tue Mar 07 00:00:00 MST 2017)

First, I was not told that the the contact fitting was not cover by my insurance, that would have help deciding which insurance to use. Second, I felt the glasses took quite long (14 days) in coming back, the most I have ever waited is 4 days with Sam's club. Third, not much variety in styles and non-brand names on what you had to offer clients for glasses. Fourth, this was the most expensive glasses I had ever purchase with insurance. I did check with another company and I would had pay about $100 less on my glasses, well maybe $200 less if I had been told about the contact fitting in advance. The doctor was wonderful, the staff was very friendly overall

I was looking for a new eye doctor because I retired and don't want to drive so far to see a doctor. My last doctor had a big practice, so I wasn't sure how I'd like a small practice. I love it. I love it so much! Dr. McGowan is very personable, professional, thorough and caring. His staff is the same. I loved that instead of going room to room with different people at other offices, one staff member in one room did all the tests/pictures on my eyes. Then on to the doctor and the actual vision test. My visit was about 30 minutes instead of 2 hours. It was a great visit, and I am very happy to have found Dr. McGowan.

Dr. McGowan was great...always personable, very clear in explanations, and caring. Took the time to remove a bothersome eyelash that was growing the wrong way (curling into my eye, versus outside!). Receptionists and others in the office very friendly and accommodating. Took care of us very close to our appointment time (easily within 10 minutes, probably much less). I'm very happy with my care at Tanglewood!

Dr. McGowan has always been great and I never felt rushed. Any questions I've asked, he's always had the enthusiasm and give his opinion. I was there; again, -yesterday. I wouldn't go anywhere else. I am professional photographer and my eyes are so important to my profession. Plus, I know he deals with aviation pilots and I am working toward flying models to destination photoshoots.

I had to wait for an hour to see the doctor and there was no explanation when he came in the room. I was seen because he told me he wanted to see me again when I called with a question regarding my first visit. I was still charged for another visit. And he was very unclear with what was going on. I had to say things for him to get clarity. He was nice but unclear. And that is frustrating when you pay a good amount and you've already been seen for the same issue he didn't cover the first time.

I'm extremely disappointed at the misdiagnosis I was given here. As a result of it, I spent $450 on a medication I don't need. The test to find that out only took a few minutes, however, it was never done during the year and half or so that I've been coming here.

Dr. McGowan is wonderful, and his staff are awesome. Everyone always seems happy to be there, they are friendly, and very patient with me when my light sensitivity makes things difficult. They listen to my concerns, and explain things clearly and offer solutions that fit my budget. They take the time to help me pick frames and have no problem discussing benefits vs. cost without being pressuring.

I had lost my glasses on vacation recently and Dr. McGowan and his crew at Tanglewood Vision were kind enough to see me on very short-notice. I had a great experience with everyone at the clinic and my eye exams were quite revealing on the state of my overall eye health. When you need a comprehensive and complete eye exam, I really recommend going to Tanglewood Vision, where you will find professionalism, caring attitudes, and warm smiles all around.

I woke up one morning with a huge red spot on my eyeball - I searched for an Eye Doctor that was close to my office and who could see me that day - I found Tanglewood Vision Center and they had an online form that I could fill out with all the information they needed about me and they had an email link to request an appointment! When they opened - I called and the sweet lady that answered the phone said, yes ma'am, I'm reading your email right now - I can see you at noon! When I arrived at noon - I was taken straight back - no waiting! No paper work to fill out! Everyone was friendly and smiles on their wonderful faces! Thank you!

The doctor I worked with was one of the best eye doctors. She made me feel very comfortable and was genuinely kind. I don't now her name and she is not listed on your web site. Other than the doctors I would rate my experience as very poor. The initial exam before the doctor I felt the tech was condescending and did not explain my options well. I had to question several times the cost and options and her responses weren't super helpful. The woman helping me pick Out glasses was helpful but at checkout she did not give me my contact prescription. I had to go back to ask for it when I realized it (otherwise there was no point in me moving forward with a contact exam). When I asked for it she questioned me about purchasing. "Will you be purchasing these with us". Well I had already explained that I was not ready to purchase contacts. I should not have to ask for the prescription or be pressured about buying them at your office.

Not many selections of glassess and the ones available are on the high end for a person with a budget. I asked over the phone prior to my visit if they could give me information on copay based on my insurance and a basic annual just for glassess, they weren't able to provide that. When I was completing paperwork while waiting for my appointment, I asked if the copay was $79 (as shown on the paperwork) and the receptionist indicated that it was not because from that amount the insurance would apply the discount which she tough to be 20%. At the end of my visit I still needed up paying $79 and the young lady at check out even said that they discount plans were confusing. Walmart vision has the services at a cheaper rate without the insurance discount. If I would have been give clear information regarding this before hand, I would have not chosen to come in. The only good part of the visit was the Doctor and his assistant, other than that, not much from the individuals up front.

Dr. Doad is wonderful, very clearly explains things and answered my questions. The front staff is another matter. The woman who does the check-in wasn't in place when we arrived so I announced ourselves to the first person I saw at the front counter, who said nothing not good morning, not___ will be right with you, no smile, nothing. The financial person was very nice and the woman who checked us in was also very nice and pleasant.

We had to wait about 30mins past appt. time. Exam prices went up so I was surprised about that. I really like everyone there and have gone for many years but I may have to shop around for something cheaper. I shouldn't have to pay $90 for an exam when I have insurance.

My visit was great. I have a lot of experience with multiple Optometrists through out my life and Tanglewood Vision and Dr. Mcgowan far surpassed all of my previous experiences. All the staff were very friendly from calling with questions, setting appt., and through out my visit. I have no plans of going any where else and would recommend Tanglewood Vision to anyone looking for an Optometrist.

On Saturday July 15th I saw a female doctor whose name I don't remember. I was asked if seeing a doctor other than Dr. McGowan would be okay, and I agreed. The office was running about 20 minutes behind. When I saw the doctor, she was very rushed and I had never had such a fast eye exam before. I was told I needed glasses. I have never had glasses before, and this is a hard adjustment for me. I was never given an option about contacts, and I didn't think of asking at the appointment time because my head was swimming with all the different information about glasses which I knew nothing about. I called the office back to see if the doctor could tell me if contacts would be an option with the prescription I was given. Gloria was not able to tell me who the doctor was I had seen and said I had to come in for a contact eval and there would be another charge. I will never agree to see a doctor other than Dr. McGowan again.

After leaving, I felt that I was pushed into a frame based on the price of that frame. Although I liked them. When I asked to see other frames, she only responded on the price, that they were only a few dollars less. She put them back on the shelf before I could try them on. I went with the flow only because I did like frames I ended up with. When I left I felt like I was rushed because it was time to close.

Then i asked if I needed new glasses and she said yes. Nothing was mentioned to use regarding his lazy eye or my being on a certain medication. Everyone was very friendly.

I am very displeased with my last visit and am currently looking for another optometrist. Obviously, I will not refer anyone to your office. The ONLY good thing about your office is Denise and her flair for customers. We were clients of hers in Bastrop and loved her. She is the reason we've come back. Where she goes we will follow.

I arrived 15 minutes early (which I feel is polite to do for an appointment)for my 1030 am appt. I wasn't seen until 1045. Once I completed my preliminary exams it took an additional 15-20 minutes of waiting in the exam room to see the doctor. A vision appt to refill contacts shouldn't take an hour. I would've been there until about noon but I had another appointment and left at 1140am without new contacts. Absolutely Ridiculous. Staff appropriately. Don't overbook the optometrists. It's common sense. I will be on the look out for a new optometrist. I don't blame the optometrist she was super nice. I forgot her name but she tried to hurry along for me but there just wasn't enough time.

Doctor McGowan has been wonderful at treating my eyes. He spends the time needed with each person. I have had some big issues with my eyes, Dr. McGowan has stayed on top of each issue even when it called for keeping me in his office longer than planned. I would recommend you have all the test done Dr. McGowan suggest, it could save your eyesight. When needed he was quick to send me to a specialist. Only one time have we had a problem and the problem was due to his staff at the time. The Doctor was fast to correct the problem. I had the best service out of the staff he had working with him in 2002-2003. He has replaced the staff a few times and once again seems to have a good staff. I think he still has one of his original staff on at least part time. I would recommend Tanglewood Vision Center and Dr. Joseph McGowan to anyone who cares about their eyesight!

I would most definitely hire her for my hotel. The doctor was very kind as well, although she explained the technical numbers of my vision, I am not familiar with the calculations. It might be nice for her to give a 'dumb down' version for individuals like myself.

I was very upset when I paid and found out I had to pay an extra $40 for a picture that I didn't need. They just added it to my visit as if I asked for it. The girl at the front said "well thats why i said to read this paper" and I felt like she should have explanied it to me and offered me the picture instead of just tagging it on to my visit. I went from only having to pay $65 to $104 which is way out of my budget and I felt betrayed by this doctors office. I thought I was signing for my exam and contacts not some $40 picture I didn't even need! I most likely wont come back for another exam in the future because of this. Doctor Mcgowan we very nice though and took good care of me. I just feel like I was taken advantage of.

I was shocked that no one mentioned it would take 7 - 10 days before I could get my glasses until after the frames were picked out and the tests were done.

StarStarStarStarStar Dr. McGowan —    (Patient since Wed Oct 22 00:00:00 MDT 2014)

I've been using Dr. McGowan for several years now. Before I found out about Dr. McGowan I tried several eye doctors. I'd never been fitted properly for my contacts and as a matter of fact, no other doctor had looked at the actual health of my eye. I have a pretty strong prescription. I've never been able to find the high quality lenses (and frames) anywhere else in town.


StarNo StarNo StarNo StarNo Star Terrible customer service! — 

I had to wait for the doctor to finish a personal conversation before I could go into the exam room. Patients make appointments for a reason and should come first during business hours. I had to wait about 45 minutes to be seen and I was the only patient there! That's horrible customer service and I won't be returning. Also, I found their frame selection to be very limited.

I felt that the tests were very rushed and not enough time was taken during the actual focusing section of the exam. I have strong misgivings as to whether the prescription is even accurate.

I was not to keen about the conversation taking place while I was on the eye machines. I did not need to hear about the sick child and needing to leave early. The details of three kids and their mom getting a new apartment or any other stuff I heard. They need to take it to the back.

Dr. McGowan is awesome!! He is truly great at what he does. I appreciate that after the eye exam, he will kick back and talk to you about stuff, like with me it was running 5K s. I also love the free sample drops he gives if he notices you might need them. He is also knowledgeable in recommending top eye surgeons. He recommended me to a great one.. lastly I love getting a new pair of glasses there because Denise is just great at helping you choose and with financial questions. Overall the team there is awesome and would recommend family and friends there.
