This was the best doctor appointment I’ve ever experienced. Dr. Esfandiari was knowledgeable and professional, but perhaps even more importantly, he was personable and made me feel like the appointment was going to be enjoyable from the start.The front desk staff was also friendly, helpful, and extremely efficient. They already had my paperwork printed out when I walked in. Literally zero wait time. I paid for my visit out of pocket and the exam, eye glass frames, and lenses were competitively priced. I’m half tempted to make another appointment just to go say hello to Dr. E and his staff. Joking aside, I highly recommend this doctor.

They were all amazing. Made me feel like I had known them forever. They knew all about how to handle the insurance. I had misordered contacts three months ago that they gave me a credit for. I had had to rearrangemy appoinment many times, and they were so sweet about it, even called the last time to make sure it wasn't a hacker. They knew coverages to give me discounts on my insurance that I wasn't even aware of. I'd give them higher than 10 stars if I could. The doctor and the staff werre truly all amazing. It was a great experience, that I'd highly recommend.

I've been going to Dr. Esfandiari for a few years now. He's a personable guy, and he explains things in a way I understand. He's efficient with your time without rushing, and his staff is very helpful in explaining your insurancecoverage, etc. They have a great selection of frames too, and the office is always clean and welcoming.

My last visit to an optometrist was 4 years ago at Lenscrafters in Mission Valley (with an appointment) which is why I most likely waited 4 years to take care of my eyes. This visit was quick, smooth and easy. Iwas literally in and out in 30 mins! Highly recommend this office.

First visit with Dr. Esfandiari and it was amazing. The doc and his entire staff are very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable during the entire appointment. Dr. Esfandiari explained every step of the process and whateach test was used for and what to expect. Unlike other places that try to to just push sales, this was definitely not the case. After the eye exam, I worked with his team to go over what insurance covered, what I owed, and was never pushed to purchase my prescription or glasses. Wish I remembered the name of the lady that helped me in the front but she was very helpful in explaining what frames would work best for my face shape and took her time to sit with me in choosing the right frames. I would highly recommend this office and will also be bringing my family in for an eye exam in the near future. Thank you to Dr. Esfandiari and his wonderful team!

This business was ran well and very professional. Dr Esfandiari told a great story of his family history and was a very personable man. I got an "experience", not just an eye-exam. I left happy, able to see (literally and figuratively)and inspired. I recommend it. - Brian (United States Coast Guard)

This was my first appointment at this office and with this doctor and I had a great experience. Even though I got a confirmation through Zoc Doc for my appointment, somehow the office did not have my appointment on file. Dr.Esfandiari was very understanding, nice, still made time to see me. I was in and out of the office in less than an hour. There was another patient in the waiting room at my arrival and she said that she also had trouble when she booked her appointment through Zoc Doc. So maybe just book directly through the office!

I just moved from Chicago almost a year ago and spent nearly 5 months researching optometrists who I thought would be an excellent fit for myself. Nothing really stood out until I saw San Diego Optometry. San Diego Optometry is experienced,welcoming, and passionate about their job and patients. Their selection of frames is also an awesome benefit about their service. My eyes are my life and I feel more than comfortable with their service...highly recommended!!
