I've been seeing Dr. Hayashi for a few years now and have been super happy. She is very diligent and friendly. Her assistants are equally warm and rigorous. Today, I had an appt. because my eyes have been itching really badly, even though I was in severe back pain, I didn't want to cancel the appt. Dr. Hayashi and her assistants were super accommodating and constantly checked with me how I was feeling and whether they could do anything like adjusting the chair to ease my pain. I felt a huge wave of compassion. Thank you Dr. Hayashi and team!

The office staff was very professional. I was checked in quickly and then seen within 5 mins. The assistant explained every eye station quickly and understandably so I knew what each machine was testing/measuring. Dr. Hayashi then came in when all was completed and review the results with me. She even made some suggestions to keep my eyes healthy until my next visit.

Dr. Hayashi was so super nice and took the time to show me images of my eyes and explain them to me. I have been seeing ophthalmologists since preschool, and this is the most thorough exam I have had. There was a very long wait time to see her, however.

She's really pleasant. I had a lot of anxiety with the condition of my eyes because of possibility of glaucoma, but Dr. Hayashi was very comfortable and explained everything to me and what it all means. She let me know what the worst case scenario was and I was relieved that treatment was available for me and not to be as worried as I was.

I arrived 15 minutes early and the staff processed my paperwork and started the tests. It was comprehensive and I felt that everything was appropriate. I am a physician so I am always a bit skeptical and critical. I do have to say I has highly impressed with Dr. Hayashi. She really picked up on the key issues and explained thinks thoroughly. I am really lucky to have found her.

Dr. Hayashi is one of the most thorough, patient and smart doctors I've ever had. I went to her because i started see floaters in one eye. Found her through reviews in zocdoc. Wait time was under 15 minutes. After she listened to my symptoms she had her assistant make appt for a retina specialist for that afternoon. I went to the appt and found out i tore my retina and subsequently had to have laser surgery. I'm very thankful for Dr. Hayhashi for her kindness but firmness that I get checked that day. Can't recommend her highly enough.

I was early for my 9:00 am appointment and was able to be seen right away. Everyone was courteous and friendly. The assistant that I dealt with made accommodations for me because I have an issue with the test where the puff air into your eye, and saved it for last so that I wouldn't be skittish in the other testing. The doctor was very thorough in explaining possible causes of the floaters that I was seeing, and put me at ease. I will definitely be returning here for future follow up and any additional issues.

Dr. Hayashi was great! She seemed very knowledgeable and was incredibly patient in explaining everything. Her exam was remarkably thorough. I had a bit of a wait, but it she explained that she was covering for another doctor that day, so it does not seem like waiting would be a common issue. I will definitely go back for my next eye exam.

I brought my son here because he was having headaches which I believe is caused by eye straining. We were seen right away and the staff was excellent. The doctor listened to our concerns and she was very sweet. I highly recommend her.
