Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional. Answered all my questioned.
Love the environment, clean, bright and professional. Definitely coming back.
The office was shabby and old with a small poorly lit waiting room in the rear of the facility. The office plans to move soon though however. Dr. Hecht was friendly and preffessional and so were staff. The receptionist was a jewel.
Dr. Matthew Hecht was very professional and was extremely friendly. He knows his work well and highly reccomemd him for any eye consultation. Regards, Sugananth T
Office environment and clientele were not impressive. however staff was ok (except there was someone training who did not know how to use the eye exam equipment) MD communucated clearly about the possible procedure. Definite staff focus on closing the deal on expensive procedure not covered by insurance and "financing" immediately discussed. ofice Seemed a little too much like a low end car sales team than an opthomologost visit.
I liked the service and the people there are kind.thanks a lot.
It is in a great location...a nice clean and bright office with very friendly, and professional staff. I loved it and I'm glad I found Dr. Hecht and hope to be a patient for a very long time.
They were very professional, pleasant and efficient. Can't ask for better than that!
The dude put in tear duct things without really telling me any financial part of the equation. He was just like "ya, it's a good idea."

I have been there before. I think he is a pretty doctor.
My appt was at 9am and filled out forms online but had to complete all of the same forms and more in the office. Doctor walked into the office through the waiting room exactly a 1/2 hour late.Office seemed run down and the equipment is archaic...not state of the art like my previous doctor in Manhattan Beach, CA. Won't be going there again.
Very clean office, excellent service and friendly staff. I definitely plan on sticking with them.
Excellent , very professional
