The appointment was fineI suppose; the doctor only spent about a minute and a half with me, but he gave me a prescription for my eye infection. However, the follow-up after this initial appointment has been terrible. The medication I wasinitially prescribed was not available at any of my local pharmacies, and the manufacturer was out of stock. I have been calling repeatedly to try and get my prescription modified and sent to my pharmacy, but have only been forwarded along to answering machines by receptionists and have yet to speak to a medical technician.

I had a great experience at Dr. Moainie's officeI didn't have to wait virtually at all - neither between check-in and actually seeing someone, nor between tests/screens and seeing Dr. Moainie, and everyone was courteous and professional.Dr. Moainie then did a great job explaining to me my condition and my treatment options, I had no doubt that he knew exactly what was causing my symptoms, which put me at ease immediately. Thank you!

I've been a contact lens wearer for over 20 years, and I get an eye exam every year. The customer service with this doctor was so unprofessional. He gave me a new prescription--that did not work. When I called to tryto get my old prescription, it was so hard to reach anyone. Once I did, they gave me some loaner lenses, but those ran out and I still couldn't get an appointment. Luckily, VSP is going to take care of having me seen by another doctor, at a different practice that returns calls and values patients. I won't ever go back to this practice and if anyone asks me, I will advise them not to use this practice, based on the negative experience I had!

Dr. Noainie was one of the best doctors I have seen for chronic dry syndrome and blepharitis. He is very personable and caring. He took a lot of time with me trying to figure out the best course of treatment. Butbest of all, I feel like Dr. Noainie is going to help me find a course of treatment that will get my situation under control, whereas other doctors basically said I would have to learn to live with my situation. I have a follow up appointment next week

Excellent doctor with great manners him, and his staff! He ran three or four tests to rule out any possibility I wasn’t treated as I should, and told me to call if I had more severe symptoms.
