Dr. Babak Hosseni was very nice and professional. He took his to listen and answered all of my question. The only thing I’m not happy about is the wait and receptionist ( Amy ) was very unprofessional and rude. Everyone else was very nice and loving.

I love this doctor and his staff! I have been seeing Dr. Hosseini since 2014. He is always very kind and professional, a pleasure to talk to and incredibly thorough - he makes sure to explain everything and answer questions. He also has me come in for follow up appointments to make sure everything is ok after the initial appointment. Dr. Hosseini is very helpful and really cares about the health of my eyes. You can tell he is a very skilled optometrist and enjoys what he does. Staff is kind, helpful and checking in is always super easy!

Dr Hosseini was very good, and kind and answered all my questions. I had to wait nearly an hour and a half for about 7 minutes of face time (I had a simple problem so I'm sure he would've spent more time if I needed it). They had an electronic check in which I thought was nice/easy. No magazines in the waiting room! Not a big deal but weird!

I wish I could rate Dr. Hosseini separate from the clinic itself. Dr Hosseini was great, very pleasant and professional. However, his staff, wait time and overall office logistics could use some work. Let me also clarify that this review is for a doctor's eye exam, contact fitting and contact purchase. Step 1: You arrive, sign in through a machine and wait to be called. All is good. Step 2: You are sent to a second waiting area...to then wait for the doctor in case waiting station #1 wasn't enough. Step 3: Doctor examines you (I only have praise and kudos for this part of the visit). Step 4: You're sent back to the front desk to pay for your doctor's visit. Step 5: You're sent back to a third waiting area to purchase contact lenses. This is the longest wait of them all by the way - which boggles my mind. They have so many people working there and only a few doctors. Admin tasks should move more swiftly/efficiently than the doctor's exam - just saying. Step 6: You're finally seen by one of the assistants to purchase contact lenses. And to your surprise, you have to pay for extra shipping for these lenses because unbeknownst to you, the doctor prescribed you lenses that they don't carry in the office....(at this point, i'm thinking "great, now i'm waiting another few days for my contacts and getting contacts on the spot was my reason for coming here.") Step 7: Contacts finally arrive to your house...with the wrong prescription. The assistant put in the wrong prescription for my right eye. Now, I'm not sure what to do. Needless to say, I'm never coming back here again.

Dr. Hosseini was amazing -- his explanations and directions were clear and concise, his energy and demeanor were comforting, and because of them my eye has been saved from a pretty terrible situation. Can't recommend highly enough

Scheduled an appointment for 430 and I was called to go early. I get there early and I still wasn't seen by the doc until 545. Rushed through the appointment. Silver lining is that his M.A.'s were very nice

Dr. Hosseini did the most thorough eye exam for me that I've had in years and I've been to a number of different optometrists. He is courteous, thorough, and shows a genuine interest in the well-being of his patients. Cannot recommend him highly enough!

I was charged for procedures that were not authorized or informed about. I went in for an annual exam and contact fitter, they charged for medical appointment & ex-ray in addition to the annual exam. They also billed my medical insurance in addition to VSP. I'm working with my insurance company to make sure they know of the fraud. The office has failed to call me back with and update on this situation.
