Dr. Nguyen is always friendly and professional, and takes the time to explain the condition of my eyes, any change from the previous visit, and to answer any questions. I've never felt rushed through any part of an appointment, with any of the staff, and I've also never waited longer than five minutes to be seen.

It was great. She was personable, knowledgeable, super efficient and didn't try to coerce me into having a test I didn't want. And actually agreed with me that I didn't need it this year. I greatly appreciated that!

Kim is VERY professional & really cares about doing the eye exams by getting you fitted into the correct lens or contacts. Kim doesn't pressure you into buying new glasses, and is truthful about giving you the best way to care for your eyes and explains in great details about the health of your eyes and how to care for them. Please don't pass on scheduling an eye exam with Kim as soon you can. You won't be sorry..........

The staff at Pro-Optical offered me a cancellation spot today. Was seen by Dr. Bao-Kim Nguyen who was professional yet personable, and easily navigated my complex past medical history. She specifically asked about my reason for the visit and provided a thorough exam, opportunity for questions and options for treatment. A great experience overall.

Dr. Nguyen saw me right away and was very kind. She explained all the options for eye tests that were available, and when I told her that certain ones made my eyes sensitive, she was very understanding. She didn't even charge me for something that she would normally charge folks for since I told her I had just gotten laid off. Very kind, understanding and compassionate. Definitely would recommend!

Awesome experience in every way. Very nice and great bedside manner / social interaction. Extremely prepared and informative. Even waived the standard fee on a digital eye scan so I didn't have to get my eyes dialated and wait for those results to come in. Couldn't ask for anything more, absolutely recommend.

My appointment with Bao-Kim Nguyen was by far the best eye appointment that I've experienced. She was quick yet extremely through and she explained things to me that I was not aware of . She gave me a sample contact lens for astigmatism and I am in love with them . This is the first pair of contacts that I can truly say are comfortable for all day wear. Thank you.

Dr. Nguyen professionalism and friendly nature always makes going to the eye doctor as painless as possible. Additionally, I really appreciate her thoroughness. She takes the time to speak with her patients and asks thorough questions to make sure that they are in good health. I have been to some doctor's that have made me feel like they are just trying to get you in and out in as little time as possible, so I really appreciate Dr. Nguyen taking the time to listen and get to know her patients.
