Dr. Mui is amazing. She makes you feel comfortable, explains everything thoroughly, and has a great sense of humor. I firststarted going to her about 5 or so years ago and she is my favorite doctor. Thankfully for her, I have learned a lot about certain conditions I have with my eyes and feel at ease.

She was very through and thus is one of the most comprehensive exams I have had. Great bedside manner and did not feel rushed at all. Very willing to teach and genuinely passionate about eye care. She is quite warm and funny as well. The wait was a bit long but other than that everything was great.

She was very friendly and fun. However, a regular routine visit was defined as a "medical visit" and I had to pay a higher co-pay. Also, I have called her office numerous times and eventually filled out and emailed paperwork to obtain my records and never received them. . despite her good bedside manners, I will not return here for shady billing and unprofessional behavior from her office

Dr Mui was very friendly and I was very satisfied with the care. However, I wasn't particularly impressed that Dr Mui spent 15 minutes chatting to a drugs rep in front of me while I was waiting and they were already running 30 minutes late for my appointment. The appointment itself was great though and I really appreciated how simple and transparent she was about how much it was going to cost me.

It wasn’t bad experience because for a first timer like me, it was difficult to understand what’s going on? She guided me very easily and explain to me, comparing to dentist where you don’t even see a doctor. She is good and funny and lovely person.

Great doctor's visit. Receptionist called me right away and got all the information they needed to check me in for my first time visit quickly. Dr. Milly Mui was patient with me and answered all my questions clearly. After checking me, she gave her diagnosis and explained everything clearly to me and made sure I understood. Although their office is small, the doctor visit was well worth it! I would recommend to anyone who needs to see an optometrist.

I rarely write reviews, but Dr. Mui was amaaaaazing. Stop searching, because this is your new eye doctor. She's smart, kind, patient, funny, and gave me the most thorough eye exam I've ever had. It made other doctors I've had look like hacks. She also took the time to talk through all of my concerns and gave me samples and coupons to use. I'm actually excited to go back to see her again.

Dr. Mui was perfectly nice -- but despite telling me I had perfect vision, I was pressured to pick out-dated frames, and wasn't even given my eye prescription (they said they'd put it through insurance before giving me my prescription -- which literally makes no sense).

Dr. Mui was very informative throughout the whole session, answering all my questions and addressing my concerns. She is knowledgeable about her field and keeps up to date about new resources, medication and medical options for my situation. She is patient and personable. However, the office space is very tight and small—efficient but not luxurious.

Dr. Mui is very thorough when explaining anything about the conditions of your eyes. Although I only see her once a year for my annual eye exam, she's great at making you feel comfortable as soon as you walk into her office and will answer any questions you have for her. I've ordered my year-worth of contacts through her for the past two years and had no problems so far. The office wait can get long times depending on how long her previous patient's appointment goes overtime but it's usually not bad. Will definitely continue to have her as my primary optometrist.

Dr. Mui and her team are AWESOME! Because of my dry eyes, Dr. Mui really took her time to explain my treatment options and what would be the best (which is why sometimes, her appointments are longer than usual) because she CARES! Dr. Mui also have useful coupons that helped me save $$ when I pick up my meds from the pharmacy :)
