Overall Rating:

I work in downtown, and wanted to find somewhere close that I could get in during the work day. I called and the office staff was very helpful and set clear expectations regarding how long it may take my lenses to come in based on my insurance plan. I set up an appointment for the same day. I completed most of my patient info online, so the wait was minimal once I got there. Dr. Nguyen was great and very thorough. She took her time explaining everything and made sure I understood what was going on. Ms. Paula, who had done my initial intake, helped me find frames that I like and gave me options regarding the lens type. It turns out they had the lenses in stock, so I will be able to pick up my glasses tomorrow. The staff and doctor here are great! Highly recommended! -Chris O.
