This was great. It was super fast. They saw my ID and remembered seeing my insurance information on the system instantly. They had a great sense of humor and the eye scanner to guage where to start. Overall i was inand out in 30 minutes. And they're open for appointments after work.

Super quick and painless visit. It's not exactly an "office", but rather a small space within an eye glass store. The doctor was very nice and helpful with providing me the information I needed. I would recommend.

The Dr. And the staff were official! I took a chance and they wound up to be better than who I've been going to in midtown for a few years. I very much recommend this DR. And the guy working the counter had fly gear on. Salute!

She was professional, quick, andpainless. She put my mind at ease. I'd highly recommend her, and return for a six-month follow-up in heartbeat. Plus, the price was right!

The dr really took her time with both of my prescriptions and was super helpful in selecting contact brands. Jai was epic in both our phone calls and in person-- he was very helpful with information, patient and honest in selectinggreat frames (that man has an eye for style!), and was all-around wonderful. They have a fantastic selection of frames in stock and the place is well kept. We are so happy we found this place on zocdoc and will continue coming here for all of our optical needs.

The office staff was friendly and professional, but Dr. Kim's bedside manner was pretty lacking - she seemed pretty unhappy, not very thorough, and in a rush to end the appointment. Maybe I caught her on an off day...but I'm not coming back.

She had a really bad attitude and bedside manner. Seemed like she was annoyed even having to see me and couldn't bother answering any questions. If you need someone compassionate who is going to give you a thorough exam, don't bother with her.

Everyone that worked there was really nice but the doctor was very rude and made me feel stupid about losing my glasses and doing the letter test. Pretty much I won't be coming back just because of her.

My contacts caused me massive discomfort and redness today very suddenly while at work. It was very alarming. The irritation was getting worse, so I quickly went on ZocDoc and booked the first doctor that had a same day appointment available.Dr. Kim saw me very quickly, and made me feel reassured. She listened and showed concern, and talked me through everything to come up with a good course of treatment. I did not feel rushed or dismissed in any way; she made me feel very relieved that I didn't have an emergency! Although I didn't have vision insurance, the cost of the visit and the medicine she prescribed were both very affordable. I would be happy to go back to her as a regular eye doctor!

This was my first time coming to this location and I came in and they had my information there already because I filled out the paperwork online before coming in. I didn't have to wait at all, they simple verified myinsurance and I explained to them what I was there for and saw the doctor right away. Everyone was friendly and the whole process was very fast. I definitely would recommend her and would come again.

The clinic was fine and the staff was very friendly but I didn't think that the doctor had a good approach to prescribing me contacts--I had to go back to get them refitted. The male doctor, however, was very helpful the2nd time that I came in and had me with a new set right away. They took my insurance and ordered my contacts for me so in that sense they saved me some trouble.
