Dr. Michael (Qi) Lui was very comforting and knowledgeable during my appointment. However, his assisting staff was very unprofessional and uninformative on all other processes. They were unsure of the product costs and coverages of differentinsurances and did not bother to break down the costs of my lens and frames but were very quick to list the total cost without much detail. I was told 3 different prices on the same frames and there seems to be no communication between those working at this office.

Felt rushed by the doctor; plus whenever I asked a more involved question, he emphasised that he's an optometrist and I need to see someone else for the more difficult answers and in fact, I felt he was trying to makeme stop asking the questions and all he wanted was to rush me along so that I can purchase new glasses. The exam room was cramped, in fact, the whole office is very cramped - they maxmised the area where you purchase frames, but the actual exam area is small & dark and windowless. They have a downstairs area, but that's not accessible to clients.

Love this dr SO much and am sad I moved away. He's truly the best. You'll not regret seeing him. Trust me! He helped my eye and headache issues 10 fold. He also carries some pretty amazing frames at his office and I'm always a fan of that. :-)

He's one of the smartest Optometrist's I've seen in my 30 years of wearing glasses. He diagnosed me like no other dr ever has and I carry his advise and insight with me to every dr I have seen since. Hewas also the first dr in over 10 years who FINALLY found the right prescription for me. I'd suffered from ocular headaches for years and years never realizing it was my glasses. He is amazing and you'll absolutely love him. The office however ... sometimes I'm not a fan of the office clerks. But endure those things for him. he's worth everything.

Great doctor, amazing staff! I’ve been going to him for years and it’s always a wonderful experience... from their flexible hours (made for people with day jobs) to the speed in service and professional environment. When I first started goingI was educated on the best frames for my nose (been wearing glasses for decades and a doctor has never told me... granted something I could have googled but Dr. Michael was kind enough to lend his expertise.

Doc was OK, but the office stuff was extremely unprofessional, everyone should avoid this place! I tried to get my first contact lens here. The prescription I got was incomplete and I could not order it through my pharmacy. When Icame back to ask for a full prescription, they wrote me a completely different one that does not fit my eye! They even shredded the original one! Unbelievable and such a bad experience!
