Their office emailed me the week before and laid out all my benefits and expected costs. They were incredibly thoughtfuland beyond well organized. When I got there the front desk staff were all so nice and attentive. No one waiting more than 10 minutes while I was there. The doctor was so wonderful, explained all my options and was extremely thorough making sure I felt good with my choice. Would definitely recommend again and again.

Honestly loved visiting Dr. Cawog - she's truly an amazing eye doctor who is super friendly, has great attention to detail, and does all in her power to fit you for the best possible eyeglasses. She is always so quick and efficient and there is hardly ever any wait time. They also have a great eyeglasses shop in the front, and they are all very educated on ways to maximize the best types of eyeglasses with all the added bells & whistles that you can get with your insurance. They are knowledgeable about all the different plans and super professional. Love this place!

I scheduled a super last minute appointment with Dr. Cawog for 10 AM and was so glad she was able to see me. She recommended a new daily contact lense for me that I love, and the team matched the prices on 1-800-Contacts where I usually order. Seamless experience overall.

I got early to my appointment and only waited about 10-15 min before being seen. Dr. Lina Cawog is by far one of the best ODs I have had the pleasure to meet. She is efficient, thorough, and very knowledgeable. She has a great personality, and throughout the appointment she never forgot about the eye-related concerns I brought up to her at the very beginning. I definitely recommend Dr. Cawog to anyone interested in seeing a great OD!

Ms. Cawog was real attentive and informative. Being that this was my first eye exam in a while (over 10 years) she made me feel relaxed and calm during the whole process. Not to mention the rest of her staff are also professional and courteous as well. The customer service there is a 10/10. I will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an eye doctor .

This was my first visit and it was awesome. I haven’t visited an eye doctor since I was very young so I didn’t know what to really expect. Dr. Cawog made my experience pleasant, she listened and was very informative, very friendly and outgoing which made me feel very comfortable. Thank you doctor Cawog for everything, can’t wait to receive my new frames.

Dr. Cawog is fantastic! She’s so kind and personable. But most importantly, she really takes her time with you to examine and test your eyes and to make sure when you walk out of her office you can see better than when you came in. It was also super helpful to fill out all the forms on ZocDoc ahead of time, so there was practically ZERO wait time.
