She explained everything very carefully without using jargon or over simplifying. She listened carefully, was patient, and spoke softly when closer in proximity. (Many physicians don’t change their volume when close to your ears.)

Dr. Nguyen was efficient and kind. I saw her for a usual eye exam and got a prescription for both glasses and contacts. (I did bring my previous prescription to help out.) I was in and out of the office inunder 25 minutes with everything I needed! Theresa helped me first with the usual eye tests before Dr. Nguyen saw me, which made the process much faster.
