I really felt comfortable with the eye doctor. Even though I haven't been to the eye doctor since forever. But I'm glad I chose them to take care of my vision needs.

Glossed over my questions with vague responses such as "the first evaluation was wrong" and "maybe things change over time".

Only waited a few minutes outside. Dr. Carcamo was very friendly and happy to answer all of my random questions about what he was doing. I just needed to get a new contact lens prescription, so I was in and out in less than half an hour!

He's very nice. The practice is run to get as many patients in as possible, and the doctor was 20 minutes late seeing me and was rushing our appointment toward the end in order to see the next person. But he's perfectly nice and the experience wasn't unpleasant.

Doc Carcamo was great. When I had questions, he showed me a model of an eye and made sure that everything made sense to me. Very chill, very thorough. Eyeballs are creepy and scary, and I was at ease. Also, the woman at the front was kind and welcoming. Recommend!

Being able to enter all of my insurance info online was great, and I saw Dr. Carcamo quite quickly. He was quiet and professional, and we did a standard exam pretty quickly to arrive at a new prescription. He wasn't wildlydescriptive about how mine had changed (+.5 additional in each eye) other than the fact that with my condition we should go as high as I can tolerate, but I didn't really need much information.

I had a great experience with Aris Carcamo and his staff in the San Francisco office. Dr. Carcamo was patient and answered all of my questions. His staff was very friendly and listened to what I wanted in new my eyeglassesframe. The staff did not pressure me to pick the most expensive frames, which I really appreciated.

The eye doctor himself was great, but their office was totally locked up when I arrived on time to my appointment. They finally arrived 15-20 minutes later and myself and another woman with an appointment after mine were rushed. My glassesare great, but they tried to upsell me. I don't think I will be returning.

Was great. Yamisa(terrible spelling, sorry) was amazing. She helped me pick out frames and really listened. First pair she picked were my favorite. Other staff were really friendly and it was such an easy process. Well oiled machine. Othercustomers were happy too. Dr Carcamo was excellent. Exam was efficient and he took time to explain and answer my question. Definitely will recommend.
