The treatment that I received from Dr. Le and his team was exceptional. Everyone was super friendly and Dr. Le's told me things about my other health conditions just looking through my routine eye exam. I highly recommend them and will be back for sure. -David P.

Had no problems so far and I’ve been going here 2004? Everywhere you go glasses are expensive so I guess the service is great. I'm taking my daughter tomorrow so hopefully her experience will be awesome too. –Valencia Smith

Pleasantly surprised. I was hesitant to go back because the optometrist that I had been seeing the past two years was gone. New guy - ugh. I made a 4 pm appt on a Friday and it was fairly empty when I arrived. Everyone was very nice and courteous. The young tech girl (did not get her name) was very friendly and knowledgeable. She explained everything to me and talked to me instead of at me. Win! The doctor - Dr Le was great. He came in and was very informative - explaining things and he showed genuine concern. My allergies have been acting up esp in my eyes and he noticed that and wrote me a prescription for some eye drops to help. He also gave me a sample of refresh eyes to help my dry eyes. I was impressed with the fact that he took time to even check and look. After the exam, he walked me outside to the lobby area and talked to me the whole way. He handed me off to the salesperson and she was great. I picked some huge nerdy frames and she was so professional and really made me feel comfortable about my decision. Overall I'm glad that I went back here! -Leena C.
