The over 1 hour wait time was due to the fact that I was a new patient and needed to fill out paperwork. Other than that the visit was thorough, efficient, and informative. All staff members were professional and helpful.

Dr. Lee and her assistant (Carmen, if I remember correctly) were very professional, pleasant, and informative, patiently answering all my questions with clear, detailed explanations. I left the office knowing more about my vision, particularlyabout how to preserve it. My ophthalmologist of twenty years recently retired; I am fortunate to have chosen Dr. Lee to replace him.

Although Dr. Lee herself was very lovely and attentive. Prior to her part of the visit- I spent the first half hour receiving vision tests and then I had my eyes dilated and was left in the waiting room for anhour, only to have no further tests run afterwards. This was particularly aggravating because I came in for inflammation (ultimately due to an eyelash scraping my eye) that did not affect my vision and ultimately spent a hour and a half of my two hour visit establishing my normal/healthy vision that I have always had.

Excellent service, aside from the wait -- I had a 3:00 appointment, so that is to be expected. If you want to get in promptly, make sure you are onr of the first appointments of the day!

Dr. Lee was fantastic. I was a first time patient who had an emergency room visit to the ER few days prior and was told I needed to see an opthamologist to follow up. She was concerned and caring about mytreatment and my overall eye history. I have decided to see her for my routine exam in a few weeks. She is great.

Dr. Lee herself was fantastic. Explained everything to me and answered all my questions. However, I was brought back to the exam room at 2:15pm and not seen by her until 3:30pm. The most infuriating part was that at no timedid anyone tell me she was running so late.

Overall a positive experience. I find ophthalmology appointments to be quite long, this was along the lines of what was expected. They were quite thorough and good bedside manner.
