Wow! Dr. VuGia put me at ease as soon as we met keeping my eye needs 1st and really taking the time to explain all of my options. Even during my eye exam, he was very patient and kept terminology understandable! He came very highly recommended from my previous eye dr back home and he lived up to my expectations. If you are looking for dr with the personal touch and care for his patients, look no further. I recommend this eye dr without any reservations!
