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.

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 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.

The first thing that really made this visit stand out from others is the amount of very modern, sophisticated technology. The office has a machine that measures all parts of your eyes without dialation! I went for a routine check up and was so surprised with the high level of care.

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.

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.

The office practice is rather horrendous. This was not my first visit to their office. They ran me through like 10 different tests during my first visit before I saw the doctor. They did this without telling me the potential bill that I may have because I have a deductible insurance plan. I went in for red and dry eyes. Overall, my first visit went ok. This time around I went there again for the same reasons, but the conditioned worsened. I tell the staff that I would like to avoid a few tests that my insurance did not cover. They said they were are not able to bring up my what my insurance would cover. Also, they said they were not able to retrieve my previous bill to see what my insurance did not cover on my previous visit. There are things called computers, and they keep pretty good records. So I had to run through all the tests to see the doctor. If I refused the test, they tell me I could not see the doctor. I tell them I will sign a liability wavier. They tell me that they will have to talk it over. Somehow they are able to produce a liability waiver form about a minute later. I'm sure I am not the only one who did not want to run through 10 different tests and get charged for it before the doctor knows what is wrong with them. I saw the doctor, but she didn't really do anything. She gave me the same sample eye drops she did before and that was it. If you want to be run through a gauntlet of tests before you see the doctor, then this is the practice for you.
