Was fine. The only disadvantage with this clinic as I see is that there are only 2 doctors who run this clinic. So, I think it obviously takes more time.

Mr. Shida is an expert, and he's rather friendly. He also helped me to understand how corrective lenses would impact my lifestyle in a positive way.

Had to wait 30 minutes and no one at front desk took time to let us know they were delayed. Would coach front desk people on letting clients know status on getting going on appointment.

My appointment with Dr. Shida went very smoothly. Once I filled out the initial paperwork I was attended to right away. Dr. Shida was very professional as usual & was thorough in explaining everything that was going on with my eyes. I would recommend Dr. Shida to my friends, family, & colleagues.

Dr. Shida's office answers the phone promptly with no automated message system. And they changed my prescription within minutes after the pharmacy did not stock the original prescription.

He seems like a nice doctor overall but he just kept trying to sell me. I am highly disappointed with the fact that I spent more money with insurance coverage than I ever have out of pocket before without insurance. Also, he didn't seem to have any concept of a budget as he kept pushing me to get daily contacts (which cost 3x more than what I usually get) and get glasses on top of that. The staff was very down to earth though and I appreciated their help and candor.
