Dr Cheng is nice but I felt she hurried through the exam and didn't take the time to listen to my responses on which option was clearer during the eye exam. She gave me a much lower prescription than I havehad in the past and she said to try this pair of contacts and let them know. I saw her on Saturday, I called today (Tuesday) because I cannot see well at all - I have worn contacts for 15 years and I know that this is way too low. She tried to tell me my eyes have gotten better, that the prescription can improve, but I really notice that I cannot see as well. Now they can't get me in until 5:00pm on Friday! Not a convenient time! So I have to spend this week not seeing well. I am frustrated.

Very pleasant. Answered all my questions. Very knowledgeable about eye diseases that run in my family. Very helpful picking out eyeglasses since I can't see how they look on me. This is my 2nd time seeing her. Definitely going back next year.

Immediately felt welcomed by the office staff member and the doctor. The appointment was smooth and everything was explained in a manner that I could understand clearly. Felt comfortable to browse glasses at my own pace and enjoyed the helpfrom both the doctor and the office staff member. I never felt rushed in any way even with quite a few questions. Had to have my eyes checked for possible diabetic problems and the doctor was very helpful in explaining the process and how much diabetes can affect our eyes. I was thoroughly pleased beyond words with my appointment.

Dr. Qiaomei was very polite and professional. She explained different options for contacts when i inquired. I was early for my appointment and was able to start a few minutes early as a result. My only hesitation during the visit: duringthe eye exam, there was no tissue, napkin or kimwipe on the chin or forehead rests. I was not present in the room before or after the test so its possible they were cleaned. This didn't bother me but it may bother a germaphobe.
