Wait time was minimal. I came in, completed my paperwork, payed the copay, and was immediately taken in. The assistant/nurse asked some quick questions and right after the doctor came in. He answered my questions and had overall excellent bedside manner. Very informative and not a bad experience. If I ever need an ophthalmologist again, I’ll be coming back to Dr. Singh.

Overall, the treatment and appointments with the Dr. Singh himself were great. He is knowledgeable and seems to care, although we had a long wait. Unfortunately, the experience is tarnish with the exit process. We were not aware that they only accepted cash during the for our co-payments and as we were searching our pockets, the staff stood around looking irritated, like we committed a crime. And now almost a year later, I have received a bill saying we owed money, which is suspect. Maybe the staff is more suited for a collection agency, then a doctor's office.

the doctor was nice and explained to us the condition of the patient's eyes but the receptionist was a bit nasty and mean. It was raining and our first time, we could hardly find the place; we were 5 minutes late, there was a patient waiting, the receptionist said," the next time you're late, you'll have to reschedule!" ....it was raining! I wanted to leave...but I won't come back here anymore....

The office was extremely efficient. Within a short amount of time I was seen by the office manager who conducted the initial eye examination using a variety machines which take pictures of the eyes . I found this odd that the office manager would conduct these tests . I was then seen by an optometrist who took some other measurements for which I was given no reason why this was done . I was then seen by Dr. Singh. He was pleasant enough but did not seem to find it important to fully answer my questions, at one point saying "If you went to medical school for opthomology you would know this was not serious ..." . I found that comment rather condescending. Overall , the examination was comprehensive but I prefer a doctor who will talk with the patient and answer questions.

Good doctor, staff leaves a lot to be desired. Showed up for a follow up appointment and then they tell me I need a referral. No mention of it on any of the confirmation calls. Will not waste time here again.
