Great Dr. took time to answer all my questions and address all my eyesight issues. The store staff was super friendly and helpful, making it easy to decide on frames.

They were busy because it was a Saturday, so they were a little behind schedule. But everyone was very nice and helpful and apologetic about the delay.

Excellent service. Beautiful frames. A little pricey but worth the investment. You get what you pay for.

I don't need glasses and she didn't try to sell me on something I didn't need. I really appreciate that! Very efficient and knowledgeable.

This was my first eye exam, so I don't have anything to compare it to. Much of the exam seemed straightforward and was fine. However, on Zocdoc what I signed up for was a Comprehensive Dilated Eye Exam, but when Iwent to the appointment I was told dilation had to be scheduled separately. In addition, after the tonometry exam my right eye developed many burst blood vessels and was sore for several days.

Waited for my appointment for almost an hour because they accidentally double booked and since it is a small eyeglass store there isn't really waiting room. Instead of apologizing tried to put blame on me, kept insisting that I must ofchanged my appointment last minute even though I told her multiple times that I didn't. Didn't really listen to my concerns/ questions, I left feeling very unsure about the prescription I was given.

The eye exam was thorough, efficient, and Dr. Kim made several recommendations to address my work-related eye fatigue. They do dilate here. I also enjoyed the store itself, which has an eclectic selection of frames and helpful salespeople.

I went to see Dr. Kim for an emergency visit and she was absolutely great. I had no wait time and she was super professional. She knew exactly what was wrong and prescribed medication that helped me overnight. I would definitely recommend!

Dr. Kim was fine but what I did not realize is that this office is in the back of a See eyeglass store. Check-in actually occurs with a salesperson and there was HIGH PRESSURE to make a purchase from the momentI walked in. I was not prepared for this and was not happy with the overall experience. If I had known, I would have gone elsewhere.

Pleasant, professional, expert. The entire experience with Dr. Kim and Yan was perfect. I couldn't ask for better. I think I paid a little more than I could, and I got every penny's worth. Highly recommend Dr. Kim and the shop.
