She and her staff are wonderful! I tend to get very anxious at the eye doctor's, especially with the glaucoma exam. She was fantastic! I had no anxiety at all. She was kind and thorough. And the staff was warm and so helpful. I didn't feel pressured to quickly pick out frames. The entire experience was very pleasant. Highly recommended!

Dr. Cawog was very professional and thorough - she answered all of my questions and explained everything she was doing during the eye exam. She also recommended products without being pushy, and worked with me to try to get the best price with my insurance. The rest of the staff was also very nice and helped me pick out glasses frames.

I went to get fitted for contacts. As being relatively new to contacts, Lina took the time to get the exact fit and prescription for me even when it took us over an hour to do so. She was patient, answered all my questions, and could haven't been kinder. I would definitely go back again.

Dr. Cawog was incredible!!! She listened to all my concerns, explained everything perfectly and asked me if I had any questions. I felt super comfortable talking about what bothered me and what I wanted. She helped me pick out the contacts that were right for me and even did the calculations for how much I would be paying after rebate and my insurance! Her staff is very nice and professional. Were very helpful and caring from the moment I walked in. She let me get samples for the contacts I am considering and told me to simply call in if I wanted to order them (which I totally will once I decide which ones I feel most comfortable with). She really tried to make sure I felt comfortable and happy with the contacts which was super important to me! Time: I arrived earlier then my appointment and she took me earlier as the patient before me was already done. I highly recommend this doctor and her amazing staff!!

Dr. Cawog and her staff are very kind- they got me in and out in no time. The only thing I had a problem with was how fast Dr. Cawog talked and went through the vision tests- it did feel like she was rushing, even when I asked her to slow down. But the end result was exactly what I needed (an updated contacts prescription), so I'd definitely return.

Great! The receptionist (sorry, didn't catch her name) was really looking out for me. She noticed that my copay was higher than she expected. She promptly called my insurance provider to double check my copay amount. Turns out the system quoted a higher copay than what I actually had to pay! Dr. Lina is very knowledgeable and very personable.

Lina was awesome. She was very outgoing and particularly easy to talk to. She clearly was very skilled at her craft, and every step of the way, she explained what she was doing and the "why" behind it. I recommend her without any reservations. Also, the staff was very nice and down to earth as well. Very pleasant visit, and I will definitely be back.
