Well, I was not that satisfy with the service I have been provided and should be my last time visit. I filled online all my documents and insurance information to avoid excessive delay. still I have to go through it again. They take me to a room, wait there 20 mints still doctor did not show up. I clearly wrote in the notes that I am looking for glass prescription, since I lost my glass, but the Dr. Check my eyes health and asked me to pay for it they said I sign to pay for it and when they show me the paper there was no signature. Then they said oh sorry but we wrote it in the glass of the reception desk. I was not there to read every glass and door that what you wrote on, and then they took my prescription from me. It was totally an awful visit and waist of my time and many.

This office is super efficient -- I was in to see Dr. Luthra within five minutes of arrival (thanks, ZocDoc for helping me take care of all the paperwork ahead of time!!!), and he himself was an absolute delight. Fantastic rapport with patients, and excellent explanation of your course of treatment. I feel like my eyes are in great hands!

Dr. Luthra is a supreme professional and personable. His assistant is the same. The reception room is another matter, about as friendly as entering a deep freezer. No one smiles; no one says hello; the response to any question is given with an attitude of 'Why are you bothering me?'

I had a prescription hicycup that the eye glasses provider made which Dr. Luthra immediately took care of and even called the store to make sure. I'm so glad he did this rather than have me explain because everyone is always trying to not get blamed rather than fix the problem.

I didn't like my experience because: 1. I didn't get the full attention which I felt warranted my appointment - he kept going back and forth between a different patient and I, I was also on time so it was not like I had overlapped with another patient's time. 2. He kept on interjecting whenever I tried to speak about my condition. I understand that he's the specialist which is why I opted for his expertise in the first place, but it's rude to keep interrupting your patient when they're trying to get their condition across.

I asked specific questions about what would be covered by my insurance, and how much I was being charged, but the staff did not seem to know what they were doing. That being said, Dr. Luthra was awesome. As long as you are clear about your insurance, I highly recommend him.

I came in to check my blurry visions. It turned out to be the issue of putting in contact lenses wrong. Having seen the few reviews about unwanted charges and tests. I said no to his offer to write me a new glasses and contact lenses prescription, and dilation test because I had to go back to work. He started to raise his voice saying how it's important to have accurate prescription and I'm "short-changing" myself by not taking it although my last prescription is only 6 months ago. When he put the yellow dye in, I hesitated because it doesn't look like they used a different dropper or attempt to clean it. He told me "you must have never got your eyes tested in America because everyone uses it here." When the exam is over he almost pushed me out of the room in a very hasty manner. My eyes were still full of the dye and I can't see anything because he told me not to put contacts in until 10' later. I sat in the office for a few minutes and asked for eye drops when the nurse offered to washed out the dye for me. She's the only good thing that came from this appointment. Needless to say, I won't come back again and I can't wait to see what they'll charge me for.

Dr. Luthra, his partner Dr. Stopak, and their staff are the best. I came to see them because I had conjunctivitis / pink eye - but will now use them as my Ophthalmologists going forward. I highly recommend them!
