Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Kamen is consistently the most authentic and caring physician I've ever met. Never rushes the visit, and always extremely thorough until I fully understand everything. Highly recommended!!
Great doctor, concise and practical help, reception a tight-run ship. Terrific!
Went for an eyeglass prescription - quick and easy! I was seen on time, and everyone in the office was very nice and helpful. Dr. Kamen was wonderful, very professional and explained everything to me throughout the appointment. Will definitely continue to use him as my eye doctor!
Staff was professional and friendly, I booked the morning of the appointment (less than 2 hrs before) and they were very helpful. The doctor was top notch!
The entire office had great hospitality. Dr. Kamen was patient and informative. It was my first time going to an eye doctor since moving to LA and I'm definitely going back. I can now finally see and the problem I was having with my eyes is fixed!
Loved it. Hasn't been to an opthamologist in a long time and wanted some reading glasses. He wrote me a prescription for my eyes and a lingering stye and popped some plugs in for my dry eyes. He listens really well and talks as he's diagnosing. Natalie the receptionist was also real friendly.
Staff and doctor were excellent. Please note it is cash or check only. There is a pharmacy in the building, which is convenient. Only bummer was there was a bit of a wait time as the waiting room was quite crowded.
He does not take my insurance but didn't tell me that until I arrived a the appointment, despite both the Blue Shield website and ZocDoc matching him with my plan.
Dr. Kamen is kind, gentle, and knows how to get the job done. I get very nervous when anything gets anywhere near my eyes. He made me feel at ease. Thank you so much! Went in twice, once for my yearly eye exam, and again for dry eye treatment. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Karen took such good care of me! I ended up having to have a procedure done and he did it right there on the spot no questions asked after explaining all options. Highly recommend!
Friendly and knowledgeable ophthalmologist who is thorough and takes the time to explain everything to you without rushing and making sure you're comfortable and understand.
Dr. Kamen and his staff went above and beyond my expectations. It was my first time going to the eye doctor in about 5 years, and I was nervous about finding someone who would take the time to listen to my concerns and do a thorough examination. Everyone at the front desk was helpful answering my insurance questions, I was seen very shortly after arriving. The doctor didn't make me feel rushed and made sure we addressed everything that was needed. I will be back!
Wonderful! Helpful, great listener and put me at ease even though I felt squirmy during my eye exam. Front desk was sweet and prompt!
very professional.pleasant staff
Had a great first consultation with Dr Kamen. His team were very friendly and attentive when I first arrived and made the visit comfortable. Dr Kamen went straight to providing solutions for the issue I had and gave options for treatment. I felt that the options were explained very well and directions for treatment were clear and concise. I appreciate Dr Kamen's help and his attentive staff. Would recommend to others. Thanks Team!
Everyone was very friendly and professional.
I highly recommend Dr. Kamen. He and his staff are very warm and knowledgeable.
I am very happy to find Dr Kamen. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. The staff is excellent and thoughtful.
Very impressed with the DR.
The front office staff was very polite and understanding when it turned out I had left my wallet in the car and had only an insurance card on me. Dr. Kamen asked me different questions and seemed mentally present as he spoke to me--I didn't get that terrible feeling of "they're not really paying attention, are they?" His diagnosis was quick and confident after he checked out my eyes and a day later I already feel ten times better! Thank you, Dr. Kamen!
Dr Kamen is an excellent doctor. He is very thorough. I highly recommend Dr Kamen.

Highly recommended Excellent Doctor!!!
Dr. Kamen is the best! I've been seeing him for years, for everything ranging from a simple eye exam to a genuine emergency, and I always feel like I'm in great hands. He has excellent bedside manner, and always listens to everything that I have to say before making a diagnosis, or even beginning his exam. It's also easy to make appointments, and everyone who works in the office is so nice!
He was the best doctor I ever seen in my entire life!

In my opinion Dr.David Kamen,Epitomizes why a doctor's creed is,"First Do No Harm" He was great. Sincerity,Alice W
Dr. Kamen is an excellent doctor. He answers all my questions with a lot of patience, and of course, knowledge! The receptionist is awesome as well!
I was very happy with Dr. Kamen and his staff.
Lovely bedside manner, he's very smart and nice.
Dr. Kamen and his office team are all very warm and helpful. He was very attentive and took the time to listen to my concerns. There is a 2 hour public parking lot on La Cienega that is walking distance from the office which I was thankful for.
I highly recommend Dr. Kamen. Saw him for the first time and there was no wait. They took me right back at my scheduled time. Forms were pre-filled by Zoc-Doc. The appointment was quick but thorough. I finally found an LA eye doc I'm sticking with.
Overall good, he is a little behind times in technologies... But he seems very formative, which is the reason to go see him... No smoke and mirrors here
Caring, kind, knowledgeable doctor. Office staff lovely. Parking incredibly expensive.....ask receptionist about free parking nearby.
He didn't rush. Took the time to answer my questions and explain everything twice.
Loved Dr. Kamen! He clearly explained all that was going on with my eyes. Also, the receptionist was helpful and friendly.
I live across town, but am more than willing to drive in L.A. traffic because I feel like Dr. Kamen listens and takes his time with each patient. He's a great doctor, and I would recommend him to anyone.
Excellent, very patient and kind!
He's a very kind man. But his office is very disorganized. They accidentally ordered my "final" prescription while having me test a few different prescriptions - then did not follow through with my insurance company to correct the error. Additionally, the doctor seemed distracted during tests - I had to remind him to change the card because i'd been looking at the same letters for 3 consecutive adjustments. Lastly, he seemed very dependent on his machines, the kind that are used in retail prescription stores, to determine my prescription.
I like him very professional and kind
The office was a little behind that day, so the wait time was quite long. It also seemed like parking was rough in the area, multiple people had to leave and fill a parking meter while waiting. The office manager was very nice and helpful, as was the doctor. They don't accept credit card payment for a co-pay, but they will give you an addressed envelope in case you don't have cash or check on you. Overall very pleased.
Dr. Kamen is great!
It was a great visit. He was very helpful and knowledgeable. I got to ask all my questions and he answered them all!
Great! Can't wait to go back and everyone was so nice. Dr. Kamen definitely helped treat my severe red eye and put my mind at ease. We came up with game plan for my treatment and he was very kind to inform me and answer all of my questions.
Dr. Kamen was incredibly professional and caring. He made sure I was comfortable every step of the way and also made sure to answer all of my questions. He is a kind and patient man. His staff was incredibly friendly and personable as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Kamen and his staff!
Dr. Kamen worked really well with my 3 year old daughter. He was very gentle and patient with her. He even has cartoon characters in the eye machines to keep kids interested. Unfortunately, the office only takes cash or check and even though I had neither they allowed me to bring it during a follow up trip. Small inconvenience to pay for an excellent doctor with no wait time.
I was very happy with my first visit to Dr. Kamen! He was highly recommended by my friend/co-worker and I would refer everyone to him. Very conscientious and polite. Great office staff too! Busy in there cause they're so good.
It was realy so good. Dr.is very nice on receiving patient at his office.Him self open the door and call the patient. I like the way he is. I ' m fully recommend him.
He was great! Very patient!
Absolutely the most informative, patient and polite doctor! Modern equipment, pleasant office staff. I highly recommend Dr. Kamen.
VERY personable and knowledgeable. Was able to diagnose my eye complications and prescribe me the right medication :)
Great staff, even better doctor. He made me feel beyond comfortable and he takes time with you answering any questions (does not make you feel rushed) I highly recommend him!
THE most positive experience at a doctor's office I have ever had! Lovely people - knowledgeable, efficient and kind. Will most definitely be back and will recommend to family and friends.
There was some problem with my insurance, so I did not get to see the Doctor, but I am sure that everything would have been great.
Very friendly and nice and smart doctor.
It was very professional. I'm happy I went to see him.
He is very gentle, patient and honest! Helped me with my eye condition right away. Already better!
Very professional. Would highly recommend this doctor.
This was a wonderful visit. I was, unfortunately over forty minutes late and they still saw me. The wait was not very long even though, because of my tardiness, four people were ahead of me. The doctor was kind and the first person to offer a solution to my chronic dry eye. The receptionist was great and so very accommodating. I would definitely recommend this office!
When I have an appointment I want to wait longer than 20 minutes!
The woman working the front desk was extremely helpful and comforting, calling my insurance for me before the appointment so that none of the visit's expenses would come as a shock, and advising me where to park. The doctor was friendly as well as very expedient and professional in checking out my eye. He immediately could tell what was wrong, and gave me tips and tricks how to avoid it in the future, and gave me samples of all the medication I needed so that I would not have to go spend a ton of money on expensive pharmaceuticals. All in all, it was a very fulfilling visit. The only downfall is its location in Beverly Hills...avoid the valet parking.
i WAS VERY IMPRESSED
He is very nice and works really quickly and painlessly!
Very efficient experience. My mom had a bad experience with her other eye doctor and had to wait a long time with no results. Dr. Kamen saw mom quickly and efficiently. He was patient with her as she has Parkinson's and can't talk well. I am so glad to have found Dr. Kamen and would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Love Dr Kamen!! He is so professional and treats his patients with respect and knowledge! So grateful!!
Dr. Kamen is wonderful. He really worked hard to resolve my issue. His caring and patient manner really helped put me at ease while he poked around inside my eyeball. In 20 minutes we got to the bottom of an issue that's been troubling me for almost a year! Highly recommended.
Dr. Kamen was really friendly and knowledgeable. He assisted me and explained everything i needed for my condition. The receptionist was a nice lady as well. Well decorated and lit office.
I loved my visit! The receptionist was very friendly and Dr. Kamen was very knowledgable. He answered all our questions thoroughly and had an open, engaging approach.
Dr Kamen is professional, friendly and efficient. He quickly diagnosed my issue and scheduled a corrective follow-up session to address it. A bonus: he's within walking distance of my home here in Los Angeles.
Dr Kamen was professional and treated me with care, listening to my concerns and providing very competent medical care. I have met other doctors who did not see the patient as a person; Dr. Kamen was not one of them.
Warm and caring. A pleasure.
I was very pleased.
He took the time to be thorough and attentive. He did not rush me out of there to get to his next patient. He was kind and concerned. Thank you
