The doctor was amazing, very professional and friendly. I was seen by the staff and taken to an exam room shortly after I arrived but didn't see the doctor until about 30 min after I arrived. I would definitely recommend this doctor and office.

Overall, I had a very positive experience. Dr. Zarate was thorough and professional. I was seen very promptly. Contrary to some other reviews, parking in the adjacent launch was a breeze. The only thing about my visit that could be improvedwas my experience with the receptionist. She claimed to not have received all of the health information I entered in ZocDoc and had me complete two antiquated paper forms - both of which were poorly designed and were redundant to one another. When I told her I received a note from you saying that my medical information had been delivered she just gruffly said "no, we just received the appointment" without offering to check again. I got the feeling it was just easier for her to have me fill out the forms again. Frustrating as I spent so much time doing it on ZocDoc. Other than the receptionist, I'd highly recommend.

Doctor came in quicker than most doctors, everyone seems to be on top of their jobs and working efficiently. Also Dr. Zarate was friendly and welcoming. I came for an eye check up and was done in about 30 minutes. SHORTESTDOCTOR VISIT EVER, so I would reccomend her and keep her as my opthomalogist

This was by far one of the worst experiences I've had in a doctor's office. Had to wait an hour and a half before they even told me my insurance wasn't valid (it was, but they figured that out *after* Ipaid for the appointment out of pocket). All in all it took me 3 hours to get a prescription for contacts. I won't be back.

Easy to get to (right off I5), parking structure next door, friendly, efficient office with optometrist/eye glass selection included, only waited about 5 minutes to be seen by Dr, Zarate who explained very clearly my situation and course of treatment. Very good technology not seen elsewhere.

Great doctor. Friendly and efficient staff. I felt like everyone knew what they were doing and did it well which is what I was looking for. This was an initial visit for a consultation/checkup. Been awhile since I'd seen anyone aboutmy eyes. The doctor handled everything I was concerned about. Definitely will stick with her.
