Disappointed! After an almost 3 hours wait time before the doctor saw my kid - we only had less than 10 minutes with the doctor and we got dismissed because my kid was crying and she decided to not proceed. Howon earth my kid won't b crying when the doctor slipped in an eye drop unannounced to my kids'eye??!! As a pediatrician or kids eye doctor, one would think the doctor would have at least some skills to make it comfortable for the child or at least make the child at ease before slipping in something to sensitive eyes (esp for first time patient). Instead the doctor just stared and waited until my crying child stops -- unbelievable! Did not even advise us parents on what we can do to help the treatment. The doctor was non-engaging. Basically, leaving that office made me feel she's disinterested, just waiting for the appointment to be over. People skills/child skills are just way less than par. I would give zero, if I can, but because there's the receptionist and one assistant that saves this place - only those were at least nice and representing "pediatric/friendly environment". At least the first assistant who tested my kid with ABCs and try on different glasses made that test worthwhile- she was amazing! This assistant made the test fun that avoided a crying session with a first time child patient. This assistant is way highly commendable and has proper child skills than the doctor herself, unfortunately. I will not come back and definitely will not recommend this doctor to any parent. I went to the clinic to get help, rather I found one that made the visit disservice. No parent should ever feel that a scheduled appointment is being rushed/time consumed just to get it over with.

Her professionalism for someone who has a known and advocates fear of eye doctors was minimal. She made it highly uncomfortable for me and charged me an insane amount of money for a service she promised was covered by my insuranceand charged me for services I requested to NOT be done. This office was a scam and highly unprofessional! Would never recommend!
