I was early for my appointment, signed the usual legal documents and we got started with preliminary exams right away, so there was no wait at all despite me being there early!! As soon as Dr. Chen was free, we thencontinued with the eye exam which was quick and painless as well. Really appreciate the efficiency and kindness I experienced and will definitely see Dr. Yee again in the future!

Dr. Yee was very communicative and is very knowledgeable. Her office has the latest technology including a retinal scan which means I didn't have to get my eyes dilated.

Convenient location. Paperwork ready upon my arrival which was mostly completed using the information I had provided via ZocDoc when booking the appointment. I was scheduled for a full eye exam, was seen right away, and was out of the officewithin 30 minutes. Office is a little cluttered, and selection of brand name glasses is lacking, but overall experience was positive.

Dr. Yee was wonderful. She has an extremely easy manner about her and is a great conversationalist. Most importantly, she is a very thorough examiner and takes her time with you to make sure everything looks okay. Even though I wasa bit late for my appointment, she still did a complete check-up and spent time talking to me about the best options for my vision. She even gave me great recommendations for eye doctors on the East Coast when I told her I'd be moving. I definitely recommend Dr. Yee for all your eye needs!
