Verified Patient Reviews
No wait time. Great staff! Very helpful in picking out glasses. Dr. Chow is so knowledgeable and sweet!
Visit was excellent. Processing through Zocdoc would have been impossible for my son, who was the patient. I completed it for him. I would highly recommend this doctor but it would be hard for a disabled person with limited access to the internet to set up an appointment.
The staff is great very friendly!! Dr. Gloria Chow is a great doctor listens to all your concerns and addresses them right away and she very patient with kids!
Super nice doctor and staff - they explained everything really clearly, which I appreciated.
Gloria is very nice and professional. Definitely will recommend to my friend.
Gloria was very sweet and a pleasure to see. Knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure my eye health was in good shape. Excited for a future visit!
Great service couldn't get any better, quick informative and attentive. Got me in and out to my satisfaction. Explained all the things I should know about my eyes and helped me find my pair of glasses.
Personable, professional, doesn't rush you, no wait - everything you could wish for from a medical visit.
Excellent service...very competent DOCTOR...I RECOMMEND THIS OPTOMETRIST TO EVERY ONE...
Greats you with a good smile and answers all questions even if silly or not. Takes time in making the patient understand the issues/concerns if any to be addressed
she is the best.cant wait to return.!
Gloria Chow is very kind and knowledgeable and the stuff is very professional. They answered to all my questions. My appointment was perfect.
I really enjoyed my visit. She is very personable and has a great balance between casual conversation to make me comfortable and informative eye care information. Both times I've come here, I was taken care of right away. She is great at explaining eye health and treatments. She is definitely someone I would recommend. The ladies at reception are also really great.
I always enjoy my visits with Dr. Gloria Chow and her other employees. They're all so welcoming and give extra care to me. I would highly recommend them!
I did not have to wait to see my optometrist as well as the working staff to be examined. All went well and I was able to order a new pair of glasses covered by my insurance.
Gloria did an outstanding job! She was extremely patient with me and made sure I was well taken care of. She cares about the patient and is willing to go above and beyond. She is ordering me some cool contacts and I cannot wait to get them!!
This was my first visit to an optometrist and it was amazing. I felt really comfortable with Dr. Chow and her staff are really nice. It felt like I have been a patient there for a long time. They helped me choose my glasses and offered a variety of diferent kinds. My visit went really smooth and it wasn't as long as I thought. I am pretty glad that they took my medi-cal insurance also.
She was very professional and performed an extremely thorough exam! Her and her staff were all really sweet as well. I would definitely recommend this office.
she was professional,reassuring, and a pleasure to be around, and her staff were just as nice as she is
Dr. Chow is thorough in her examination and offers a variety of relevant options for my prescription. My visit was enjoyable and I'm pleased with the glasses and contacts that she's prescribed. Great and timely service!
Clean office, friendly staff, knowledgable OD :)
Dr. Chow is amazing. She's takes the time to discuss the health of your eyes. She listens to her patients' concerns and answers questions. She has a beautiful way of working with children. Her staff is just as amazing as she is!
Gloria is very friendly and was very thorough during my annual vision screening.
Gloria was great!! She was friendly and very attentive!
I likeher very much
It takes a lot to impress me. I was not expecting the surprise that I got! The little gal at the reception desk provided excellent customer service with a smile. And as for Ms. Chow, well I could not have asked for a more thorough, more welcoming, more attentive, more patient, kind and understand as well as ever so professional OD visit. I would recommend this office to all friends, family, coworkers etc. I left today very pleased and very satisfied with all the tests that were done and information that was given to me in regards to the problems I was experiencing. Thank you Ms.Chow and associates!
Awesome doctor who is super friendly. Got my prescription right really quickly and recommended lenses that help with viewing a screen. I really noticed a difference with the special lenses. Wait time for me (I go around 2:00 on weekdays) is normally really short or near instant.
very knowledgeable and experienced. I really liked her friendly approach which SEEMS TO BE VERY RARE IN DOCTORS and i HOPE SHE MAINTAINS the same during her career. Ya one drawback, that she lacks the system of uploading the reports on the online portal for patients reference but she was kind enough to give me copy of the reports for my reference. Also she is LOYAL to her profession as well as the patient but not recommending 2nd or follow up visit UNTIL AND UNLESS its very necessary and imp. for the eye's health. bottom line - SHE LOVES HER JOB and she is there for the betterment of the people. I shall definitely recommend her to my friends and relatives!!!
Dr Chow is super friendly, professional and is very attentive to your needs. I recommend all my co-workers here!
Dr. Chow is an out-going and down-to-earth person. She and her assistant Ariana made me feel at home and super comfortable. She was very kind and attentive during my whole visit. I'd absolutely refer my family and friends to Dr. Chow's office. I'm very pleased! :)
She was excellent and did a thorough exam.. I was very satisfied..
I just had my second visit with Dr. Chow and I'm more than satisfied with the service I received. She's very likable and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone I know!
I am not the easiest patient to deal with, and yet Dr Chow was very patient with me and creative with my complicated medical issues. These will be my second pair of glasses ever, but I have been to many, many doctors as well as other types of salespeople and Dr. Chow really stands out as being professional, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Dr. Chow is so friendly and nice and she is so thorough and rigorously check everything.
She's really good doctor and I'm comportable with her
Haven't been to an eye doctor and had a great experience here. I'm following her instructions to help with my dry/tired eyes and am looking forward to coming back for more great advice.
Went in for an eye exam and had a great experience! Would recommend to anyone in the San Jose area.
I enjoyed my visit with the doctor.She was very caring and as always very easy to talk to and share any concerns I might have about myself or family.Thanks so much. Diane W
Dr Gloria Chow is awsome! Very careful, thorough and knowledgeable. On top of that, she made my visit very comfortable. Would highly recommend her.
I had such a great experience with Dr. Chow - she is an absolute joy, very professional and extremely informative. The office is in a sketchy area, but fear not as the service you'll get here makes up for any shortcomings about the location.
Today, I returned to pickup my new glasses which included new lenses in my two old frames and a new pair of sun glasses both frames and lenses. Everything was fine except for the color of the sun glass lenses that I had selected but didn't like after trying on. No problem! Dr. Chow, with no hesitation, very graciously said she would return the glasses for the new color lenses. I shall definitely return to Dr. Chow for my annual eye exam, for any eye problems, or for new eye glasses. I highly recommend her.
Very nice, very caring. Will visit again.
Having recently moved to San Jose, I was delighted to have found Dr. Chow. She was so friendly, kind, efficient, and thorough. She spent a great deal of time with me and was very helpful in selection of my frames and lenses. Go to Dr. Chow, you'll be happy you did.
Dr. Chow is a great, caring doctor. She really goes the extra mile to ensure you receive the best care.
Dr. Chow is very thorough and professional. She answered all of my questions and made me feel good about my diagnosis and future treatment.
Dr. Chow is the best optometrist all around! She was very thorough with my eye exam and even took pictures of the inside of my eyes, explain what I was looking at and then gave me a copy for my own reference! Dr. Chow is extremely caring and gentle, she did not rush my appointment at all. I typically have a difficult time finding the right kind of frames because my face is more on the flat and wide side, but I found the most perfect frames that compliment my face exactly. She has a good and wide variety of frames and sunglasses you can choose from. Adults and kids! She did not rush me when I was choosing my frame or pressuring me into buying the most expensive ones. She just wanted me to have glasses that made me happy, and I am definitely happy! The frames I got were wide frames by BossOrange and they're also matte. She sat down with me and explained what kind of lenses would go best (anti-glare, compressed) with the type of frames I got. She is very detail oriented and extra ensured the prescription she tested was the right one. After my eye exam, she had me walk to the office area and look through a set of lenses after she tested and asked if I could see the posters/banners clearly just to make sure I could see the words perfectly (no other optometrist had done that for me before). After visiting her office, I couldn't imagine going to another optimistrist! I completely trust her with my vision.
Pleasant visit. Will come back next week.
