Dr. Dian was nice and I liked the place. She explained each each step before doing anything. The only downside that even I came early to the appointment, I waited 30 min from my original time. Other than that, the visit was great.

Very nice and competent doctor. Wait time was very short (about ten minutes). I brought my contact prescription with me so updating it was not expensive, even without insurance.

Doc very professional and straight to the point. UNike some others, she actually goes thru the forms to read history. It was a general visit.

Was able to book same-day and was seen promptly at my appointment time. Couldn't have been easier. This office did not accept my vision plan but did accept primary my insurance, and the cost for an exam and contact lens checkup was comparable to the vision benefit price quoted by another nearby office. Highly recommend.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Iskander, however I do want to note that their office does not take any vision plan insurance--only medical insurance, which means you do have to pay out-of-pocket for glasses/contact lenses exam.

Honestly, she was one of the best doctors that I've had. She listened to me really well and gave me a full check up unlike my previous eye doctor. She made me realize that getting a second opinion can lead to valuable insights. She gave me hope that my visual problems can have a solution. Great doctor, highly recommend!!
