Patient reviews for Dr. Ayumi Kimura
She’s really warm and friendly. She listens to concerns attentively.
She was so sweet and super thorough. I’ll be back for sure
Great. Very helpful and versatile in her approach. My girls thought she was cool.
Staff is super friendly, explains what all the tests are for in super easy to understand terms. The office is clean and the free carrot juice is cute. Only wish they had more diverse frame options.
Dr. Ayumi and the staff at Zak. are a pleasure to work with. They broke down the procedures clearly and gave me a thorough breakdown of what's covered in my insurance plan so I could make an informed decision about the glasses and contact lenses that best suited my needs.
Dr. Kimura was very friendly, thorough and knowledgeable. Glad I found her!
I saw Dr. Richardson and Simon and they were so incredibly helpful and kind. They walked me through every step. I have been looking for a good eye doctor in LA that I can trust and I have definitely found it!! Thank you to the entire staff for being so great and making my experience seamless.
Dr. Richardson was great!
Everyone was so nice! And they have the very latest tech that makes the appointment very fast and efficient!
Everything about my visit was awesome! Gerardo, who checked me in and did my initial eye assessment, was super helpful and explained every part of the procedure very clearly. He also patiently helped me pick out my frames afterwards, and break down the pricing. Dr. Kimura was the coolest, very professional and excellent bedside manner as well. 10/10 would recommend
LOVE. so thorough and descriptive during the entire process.
Everyone is fantastic. They explain everything that's going on and takes the time to evaluate and assess alongside us. Did not feel rushed at all, feel super supported, and they also have a great line of trendy but affordable frames. Other more expensive frames are beautiful and unique. Love this place!!
I've been to a number of eye doctors and go annually. Dr K did way more tests than any other doctor I've been to. It's obvious that her methods are very current. Timely and knowledgeable. Also nice to find a doctor open Saturday.
Loved the staff and space. Everything was great with exception to the location.
I saw Dr. Richardson at Zak and it was the best experience I’ve ever had at the eye doctor. She was very friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable. The staff at Zak helped walk me through using my insurance effectively and their glasses are very stylish and affordable. I’m so glad that I found Zak and Dr. Richardson. Thank you for a lovely optometrist experience.
She is now my eye person & zak is my eye place! Dr. Kimura is so nice and friendly and explains everything that’s going on. All the staff there is also super friendly and just great, pleasant people! Really happy with my experience and will continue to go there!
Had a great visit, really loved Dr Kimura!
I've been wearing glasses for over thirty years, and I've never cared about, much less loved, an optometrist. That is, until today. I was greeted warmly and immediately. The paperwork was painless and everyone was so friendly. The doctor herself is not just knowledgeable, but very friendly. Honestly, I don't remember ever exchanging more than a few dozen words with an optometrist before, but she really seemed to care about what was going on in my life. She took her time and made me feel, well, seen. To to bottom, an outstanding experience.
