Staff is good. Clinic is good. Doc is also good. This is my second visit. Nurse did a good job intalking and taking the basic tests. She took a decent amount of time with me. But, doc is very fast. Didn't spend much time and very fast. Completed in 4 mins. She is in kind of rush it seems. I felt...she should have spoken with me slowly and ask for all details.

She did not even bother to listen or understand my problem. She was eager to wrap up things and refer meto a different doctor. Did not even check my eye powers. Aweful experience. Would not recommend her to anybody.

Very satisfactory experience. Wait was about 25 minutes. ZocDoc was extremely helpful for this appt as I barely had to fill out anything when I got to the office. All staff members were friendly and professional. Dr. Zhang is straightforward and thorough. I did not feel rushed. Location of the office is convenient if you’re coming from 287. All in all, a very good appt.

My visit with Dr. Zhang went very well. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and I did not have to wait long at all. Dr. Zhang and her assistant before I saw Dr. Zhang, were both thorough. The doctor took the time to answer some of my questions regarding my vision as related to diabetes. Overall great visit.

Dr. Zhang was excellent! She was very thorough and explained everything. I was very happy I chose The Eye Center! They had a variety of times and locations available to choose from! The only recommendation I would make is to wait and fill out the paperwork at the office because it didn't transfer from the Zocdoc website. I had to fill the forms out again in the office. The ease of scheduling the appointment on Zocdoc was amazing! I will definitely recommend Dr. Zhang and The Eye Center to my friends and colleagues!

The office staff was professional and courteous and my wait wasn't long , maybe 20 minutes total. Dr. Zhang was very pleasant and extremely thorough. She confirmed that my vision was good and was firm on the fact that I shouldn't get glasses until I really needed this week them. To me this shows that she actually cares about her patients. I would recommend this doctor.

In the waiting room, again, the staff showed their professionalism by being courteous and patient with the examination process. The Ophthalmologist , she was knowledgeable, informative, and clear in defining the issues pertaining to my visit. Overall, I would highly recommend this professional group of caregivers; from the gatekeeper (paper processor) right through the consultation process.

I have horrible experience here. We couldn't find the place so we called them to ask about direction. The lady who answered the phone was kind of rude. When we walk in side the lady at front desk who asked me the information also kind of rude. It was not a good impression at all. I told them I already check in my information at Zocdoc they said I don't have it so I have to fill out the form again. The doctor spend time with me less than 10 mins. I absolutely not come back here again

This was my first visit. The front desk staff did not make a good impression on me. The lady was almost too professional. For example, she asked me for my secondary insurance card. And Im rooting through my pocketbook and I said "now your asking tough questions" kidding around and shes like, "well Im just trying to save you money. Ok, whatever. So, I sat down then the ladies behind the desk are discussing someone who has cancer. Not a comfortable thing to listen to, I lost my mom a few months ago. But, once I got into the office proper, the doctor and her staff were awesome. She took her time, did a thorough exam, told me what she saw and her thoughts. Gave me ample time to ask questions. So, yes, I would recommend her
