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.

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 checkupwas 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 tovaluable insights. She gave me hope that my visual problems can have a solution. Great doctor, highly recommend!!

The entire family came for a check up and we were very pleased with Dr. Iskander. We saw her for the very first time. She was very patient with my daughters and would explain what she was doing. She was verythorough and did not rush through any steps. We left the office very happy and looking forward to see her again on the next yearly check up.

She was very informative and did all of the eye exam herself, in the past I've always had techs do it so it was great to have her perform all the tests and talk to me about my contact and glasses options!

The appointment itself was good, Dr. Iskander was very knowledgeable and worked hard to get my prescription correct. However, i have been waiting over a week and a half for my contacts to come in without any notifications from the doctor'soffice. I've just called and they are on vacation for this entire week, something that she failed to mention at any point during my appointment. This will delay me getting my contacts until three weeks after my appointment, which is absolutely unacceptable. Though the doctor is good, communication is poor, and I would not recommend going here.

If you are looking for an optometrist that is going to fit you with a new pair of contacts that day and assist you in ordering them, this is the wrong place. Other optometrists I've gone to have given me newcontacts during the visit, however after this visit all I walked out with was a prescription sheet with my numbers on it without a word about what to do with it. She seemed like she had better things to do with her time.
