Dr. Nathan Hind’s desire to become an optometrist stems from his childhood. At a young age he was near-sighted. His optometrist gave him the ability to see clearly and perform to his full potential. This experience made him want to help others the same way he was helped. “The world is a beautiful place, and people should be able to appreciate it as clearly as possible,” he said. On his spare time, Dr. Hinds loves spending time with his family and friends. His second love is motorsports, especially motorcycles and vintage muscle cars.

The doctor was very, very good. His staff is wonderful. I was treated with a lot of courtesy. Him and I both bonded because we both lost somebody, last year in 2020 and I was very, very happy with the service provided by everyone. Thank you. God bless them.

Dr. Hinds (and his staff) is without a doubt and by far the best experience I have ever had with a doctor. He was incredibly thorough and detailed and super caring and friendly. He is absolutely the epitome of what patient care is and should be. PIH would be wise to utilize him as a training standard for all network physicians. He was phenomenal and dare I say incredibly good looking even with a mask on. The pay for parking at PIH though is incredibly shady. For a "nonprofit" hospital to charge patients when they go to the hospital is wrong. People come to the hospital and may not leave alive. People come to visit their loved ones for possibly the last time and to charge people to park in a time of need is shameless. Paying for parking is FOR PROFIT and not "nonprofit". Completely wrong of PIH to be doing this and it left me with a bad taste. Not to mention there is NO validation and parking fees are mandated. Sure, it was only $3 but it is really about the principle of the matter. Very shady PIH!

Purchasing glasses felt like buying a car. Male assistant arrogant and dismissive.

So positive and easy to talk to
April 15, 2021
I was very pleased with the entire visit
April 14, 2021
the experience is one of anxiety and not comparable to normal situations caused by the pandemic. All of the staff and doctor wore masks and required all patients to wear masks which is a very good policy these days. I believe the office facilities that the patient comes in contact with are cleaned after every patient. I do not know. Too many patients were in the waiting area when I was there 3 or 4 in a small room space sequestered to either see the prelim-treatment staff person, the doctor, and optician staff. The fact that everybody dutifully wore masks is important in this kind of situation although I felt there was too much waiting in place under those conditions. I regret that I did not talk to the doctor more questions to clarify better his findings.
April 13, 2021
Dr. Hinds is a great provider not to mention a great human being. Very professional and personable, makes you feel at ease.
April 09, 2021
I've been seeing Dr. Hinds as my eye care optometrist for several years, and I think he gives excellent care. He's most courteous and respectful but he's very, very thorough and points out things I've needed to do and things I need to watch out for, with my eyes. And I really appreciate his health care very much.

Front office staff was extremely nice, the girl that helped me picked out my new glasses was the best she gave me good advice and even helped me pick between one I was debating on which I loved, she didn't act like she was trying to sell the different products she was genuinely listening to what I wanted and helped in every way. The doctor was super nice listened to everything I had to say, I was very comfortable. I was a first time patient and I felt like I had been going to him for years! Definitely coming here from now on.

Thank you for all of the helpful information you provided for my new endeavor of getting glasses online and from the 99C store. I did not know that reading glasses off the counter could be so helpful. I really appreciate your help with my measurements to ensure I get something that will be useful to me.
