I have been going to eye doctor since my childhood, and he is the best eye doctor I have ever met. He explained everything in so details and was so patient with answering all my questions. Also, he was a verynice person in general and he makes you feel welcome and heard. I would HIGHLY recommend this doctor to anyone.

The staff was rude and unprofessional, DR. Ferreira seemed upset and slammed the office door (office were I was getting tests done). There were at least 30 patients in the waiting room with no room for sitting and I heard lotsof complaining about patients waiting since 10 am. Honestly, don't do it! BEWARE! Terrible! Never again!

I learned that my symptoms were typical of a scratch on the eye, which is what I had. And when i booked, I had indicated corneal abrasion as the reson for my visit. Despite that, we spent a long time firstgoing through all the routine eye exam things like a vision test. I was in terrible pain and sensititve to light, so when I asked that the doctor first look at my eye before taking me through all the routine tests, which were causing me even more pain, the doctor mansplained that we could not deviate from the routine. No one bothered to ask when my last eye exam was (3 months ago). The doctor's insistence on doing things his way rather than taking care of a patient's urgent physical pain is why I wouldn't go back to him.

Everyone in the office was attentive and seemed to be comfortable with each other, which led to great team work and satisfaction in their service. They asked specific questions and gave detailed explanations to me. Although there were plentyof patients before me and many were coming in every few minutes, the wait time was not excessive. Dr. Ferreria was welcoming and showed much care for me as a patient. I left very satisfied, indeed!

The doctor was knowledgeable once I got to see him but the process was inefficient, you wait for 2- 3 hours with no information. You end up wasting a lot of time to be seen for only a short visit. Iwas even told once that there were 2 new patients ahead of me so my wait time will be even longer. Wether there are new patients or not should not dictate the experience of other patients in my opinion.

Too short confused me and made me think I had an issue when I didn't. Everyone in the office seemed confused and didn't know how to use the eye equipment. They took 10-15 pictures of my eye trying to get one shot. It was unpleasant.

Went in for a possible sclera/cornea abrasion at the urging of my urgent care doc. The visit turned into a glaucoma screening and consult because family history of glaucoma. This might be my new eye dude fo' life. Awesome bedside manner.Taught me stuff about my eyes. The wait wasn't long, but it's necessary to note that this is a new office. Not sure if that'll be the case once this office gets more popular. (Review written Sept 2016)

Dr. Ferreira was beyond helpful and thorough with the examination. When he noticed that something more serious was wrong, he immediately scheduled for me to see another doctor that same day, which was greatly appreciated! Will definitely continue to see Dr. Ferreira for further treatment and check-ups.

First, I was helped by a lady naned Leticia at the other location they have. She did her best to accommodate my (same day) appointment because I didn't have a referral. I was seen by the doctor right away. He wasvery honest and thorough with his explanations. Made it very clear to NOT sleep in my contacts. Lol. Told me how to care for my eyes even how to wash the makeup of my eyes. He is a VERY good doctor and would deff recommend.
