The doctor was great! However, the ladies selling the glasses/assistants were very persistent and would not stop bothering you if you did not want to purchase glasses during your eye exam.

We scheduled an appointment with Dr. Melania Napolitano but never saw her. Instead, we were seen by Dr. Brenda Liang. This review and the stars are for Dr. Brenda Liang. Dr. Liang was wonderful. My eyesight is terrible and I haven't seen an eye doctor in years. She was incredibly patient with me in trying to figure out my prescription. Turns out I needed to see an ophthalmologist. She referred me to an excellent clinic. I am very happy with her and with the clinic I was referred to. Dr. Liang's staff was wonderful. They immediately brought out the frames covered by my insurance. They did not pressure me to buy name brand glasses. They offered me "discounted" glasses that included the lens and the frames. They explained what exactly I was getting at the discounted price. This was separate from the glasses my insurance covered. Which was nice because my insurance will only cover 1 set of eye glasses, not 2. And I need 2 since I do not want bifocals. I highly recomment Dr. Liang and her office. They were professional, courteous, and kind. The office was clean and organized.

Doctor was great. My mother has trouble following directions due to Alzheimer's; she was patient and helped her to take the exam to determine the prescription she needed for new glasses. As you know glasses are important to see for everyday functions.

I went for an eye exam today got there 30 minutes early because i knew I had to fill out forms. Waited about 30 minutes which was reasonable. I think Dr. Napolitano is very professional. I recently took a biology class, so during the eye exam I understood what she was saying when she was pointing at the visuals of the inside of my eyes, interesting. Dr. Napolitano also made recommendations that I also respect. She seems like the reserved, brainy, introverted-type, just like me. :-) Her assistants were friendly and we had great conversations while I waited. I'm happy I chose her and I will return again for my prescribed glasses.

The doctor diagnosed the infection quickly. Once I started using the prescription eye drop, my infection was stable within a day. Overall, I am very satisfied with the treatment. The only complaint I have is before visiting her, I verified that she accepts my insurance. But once I got there, they had for a payment right away before even billing the insurance to determine a contracted rate. I felt that should be have disclosed on the phone.
