Verified Patient Reviews
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 insurance coverage, 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. I was literally in and out in 30 mins! Highly recommend this office.
Great!! I think I am going to buy my long overdue glasses. :)
Very pleasant and professional. Got me in and out quickly. Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Esfandiari was great! She was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and professional throughout my visit. It went very quickly and I left feeling good about my new glasses that will be arriving soon. She also made great suggestions for me and really tailored them to my work life and things that would be helpful for me specifically. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an eye doctor 100%.
I've been coming here for my eye exams for almost 3 years. I appreciate that I'm always seen on time, and all my questions are answered. The staff is very helpful in picking out glasses if you need them. I would highly recommend!
very personable and kind and explained everything very thoroughly
Awesome doctor, Dr. KATSANI was very helpful and explained each process of the examination. She also prescribed a different contact lens that feels much better! Highly recommend.
kind, welcoming, and very explanatory.
Dr is great with kids. Very friendly and helpful staff.
I really enjoyed all of the information provided, the relaxed atmosphere, and all of my questions that were answered. It was a great experience.
Front staff very attentive & I had the pleasure of having Dr Kelly Keane do my exam. I would absolutely recommend their service.
Super friendly and didn't waste any time.
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 what each 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!
Great, friendly atmosphere and informative!
Very nice and attentive, and staff was polite, awesome and patient with helping to find the right style of eyeglasses for my first time ever having to get. Dr. Answers any questions you may have and thoroughly explains in a way you understand!
Doctor E and his staff are very professional and informative about everything. I loved their services that I even scheduled an appointment for my daughter. They have a great selection of eyewear and you can't complain about the price.
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)
Dr Esfandiari was not there that day, but I got a young doctor who was awesome (too bad I can't remember her name). She was very courteous and efficient. The prices are also very reasonable. Great experience overall.
Dr. Esfandiari and his staff were personable, professional, and knowledgeable. I was able to make a dame day appointment on a Saturday as a new client, which I appreciated Very much! I highly recommend this practice.
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!
He's the best optometrist I've ever seen in my life. Everybody in San Diego must go see him. Tracy, who manages the store, is very pleasant, friendly, and helpful. Simply the best.
They were extremely friendly and helpful.
Dr. Esfandiari was very kind, explained his technology thoroughly, and my appointment seemed to fly by. He has a very large selection of frames in his office, with many different styles. I enjoyed working with him and his staff, who worked very hard to make sure I went home with the perfect pair of glasses.
Extremely professional, made me feel comfortable, and took care of all of my needs. Couldn't recommend him more!
Dr. Esfandiari was professional and very friendly. He also took the time to explain everything I had questions about. His assistant was also very knowledgeable and courteous. I highly recommend them!
Professional and personable. Great bedside manner, explained everything he was doing and the outcomes. Great selection of frames. Highly recommend!
he was amazing, took me himself the minute I walked in. Told me about the new contacts and even told me if I had issues that he would be happy to return them.....awesome.....Highly Recommend.
Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. This was my second annual exam. Found glasses I liked at both visits. Only negative comment is that selection of frames is rather small.
Dr. Keane was very professional and friendly. She explained everything as we went through each step and answered all of the questions that I had. Martin was awesome too, he went through what my insurance covered and helped me utilize my benefit plan the best way possible.
By far, the easiest and quickest appointment I have ever had! Very friendly staff as well! Can't wait to come back and get my contacts??
Great experience at this office. The staff was professional and friendly.
Thorough and efficient, doctor and staff had very professional and pleasing manner, provided clear and comprehensive pricing options including insurance component.
It was great! Everyone was very professional and I had zero waiting time. I will definitely continue to come to this clinic.
Fast friendly exam. In and out in no time. Highly recommended!
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!!
I visited Dr. Esfandiari for an annual check-up and contact lens fitting. The whole process went smoothly and comfortably because Dr. Esfandiari was welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable. I would highly recommend him if you're looking for a new optometrist.
I came here for my comprehensive eye exam and I was seen by Dr Kelly. She was particularly attentive to my needs, questions and is really knowledgeable. The front desk was really helpful and friendly as well. Overall, I was very pleased and felt that I was taken really good care of. Definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for knowledgable, caring and friendly optometrists.
Great Doctor! Definitely making this my home location!
I love his personality. Dr esfandiari is very pleasant and professional. I would recommended to my friends and family.
I had been looking for a new optometrist and found the perfect one. The staff are friendly and helpful, Dr. Esfandiari was thorough and explained everything throughout the comprehensive exam and I was in and out on time. Perfect.
Dr. Esfandiari was really nice and took the time to explain all of the results to me. The service was top-notch and quick! Definitely my new local eye doc.
Fantastic service. Upfront, personable, quick and efficient. Thank you Dr. Esfandiari and Martin!
It was quick and comfortable!
I had a super duper great experience. I look forward to my next visit.
I had an excellent time at my visit! It was my first time getting glasses and I easily found a pair I loved. They had a big selection to choose from and the staff was really nice and knowledgeable. It was a fun and pleasant experience.
It was amazing. My husband and I along with our two little girls (6 & 4) all had a great experience. We live in North County and dont mind the 30 min drive to see Dr. E. He is highly professional and great with kids. We were also pleased with his eyeglass and sunglass selection. He has all the new styles in all price ranges. Even had great choices for my daughter (6 years) and found a pair she loves (her first pair ever). The office is clean, new, and inviting. The staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. We all look forward to our next visit.
I read the reviews before seeing her and they were right, she is very professional, respectful and nice. Every step of the procedure was followed by a brief explanation and all my questions were answered.
Outstanding service and very charismatic and professional.
Very quick and very professional. Complete Annual exam was about 35 minutes. I did not feel rushed and he was quick with the explanations of what he is doing and what he is seeing with the different tests.
Terrific service and felt very satisfied.
Best eye doc in town! Quick and thorough service
Knowledgeable staff and Doctor. Everything went very smoothly and efficiently. AND it's right next to Starbucks. Can't go wrong!
Great appointment! Everyone was super friendly!!!
Best eye doctor there is!
What a refreshing and enjoyable visit we had with Dr. E! The boys (ages 9 and 10) enjoyed him immensely.
It was great. I got there early so I could leave early. Worked out great. Very professional, gave good advice, good deal on glasses. Overall good experience
Great customer service and very knowledgeable.
Dr. E is the best! Only doctor I trust when it comes to my eyes. He knows what he's talking about and does everything he can to make it a comfortable and pleasurable visit!
Dr. Esfandiari is friendly and knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable and let me know what to expect before each procedure.
He was great, very attentive to details and ready for any question I may have. Office staff was very attentive as well!
Most down to earth doctor you will ever meet with!
Good Collection of Frames and Good Doc nice and Pleasent Envorinment.
Excellent Doctor. Very helpful, knowledgeable and professional.
Staff and doc positive honest professional - also recommend doc and staff for special needs kiddos
I have been going to Dr Esfandiari for the last 3 years (since I moved to San Diego). Everyone there is very professional and friendly. Dr Esfandiari is very caring and professional. I would defiantly recommend Dr. Esfandiari to family and friends.
Knowledgeable and listened to my situation.
Very pleasant visit! Thank you.
Questioned it at first when I pulled up but they were very nice and I had an emergency at work so they were very fast. It was perfect!
Dr. Esfandiari has a very good bedside manor. He explains everything so a layman can understand it.
Experiencing rapid farsighted worsening due to optic nerve condition. Dr. Esfandiari discussed it with me with concern did a few checks and insisted I follow up with ophthalmologist first to ensure eye prescription would be stable and not be a waste of time and money. Very honest and considerate care, I felt bad for leaving when no body else was in office yet to utilize his time. I will certainly return when eyes are stable.
The office staff was very kind and happy to answer any questions and concerns. The Dr himself was really easygoing and makes you feel comfortable during the whole process. Very happy I chose the Groupon I did! Great experience!
Very friendly and very quick service. Highly recommended!
Dr. Esfandiari was great. From start to finish, he was very attentive and informative. Staff was very friendly and kind. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends!!!
Seems like he has all the time in the world to make sure I understood answers to my questions. He encouraged me to ask questions and does not have a rushed manner. He's friendly, polite, thorough, knowledgable and most of all, trustworthy. I'm impressed by his high standards. I just found my new eye doc!
Dr E is an excellent doctor. He's thorough and takes time to educate his patient. I think that's very important that a doctor should not only treat the disease but also tell patients how to take care of themselves. Dr E is above and beyond. There was no wait time. I didn't feel rush and I asked a lot of questions! The staff Sandra is also wonderful. She mailed my husband's eyeglasses to us because we moved away but couldn't get the glasses in time. I highly recommend.
It was pleasure to meet him. He was really friendly and patient. He took sufficient time to know about my problem and treated well. Moreover the receptionist was very cooperative.
Dr. E is awesome! This was a simple eye dilation exam, but I had mentioned to him that I was considering LASIK to correct for both distance and reading. He suggested I hold off, as there are developing procedures and technology that may be a better fit for me. I had no idea! I'm in no hurry, so I'm happy to do a little more research. I appreciate that Dr. E continues to keep current on emerging procedures and knows his patients well enough to know what's in their best interest.
Was totally impressed by the professionalism shown by Rambod Esfandiari in his examination of my eyes to change my prescription. His office help was equally courteous and helpful in helping me choose a new pair of glasses. I would highly recommend San Diego Optometry.
I had an 8:00 appt on a Wed and was taken in almost immediately when I arrived 5 mins early. Dr. Esfandiari is young and professional but also very personable and relatable. He doesn't push tests or glasses or other expenses on you that you really don't need. He's also great at being able to explain things in a way us regular folk can understand. His receptionish is super friendly and approachable as well.
Dr. Esfandiari was very friendly and professional. Explained everything in detail and he and his staff were very helpful in picking out frames. Great experience overall!
He was exceptional. My family will visit him again.
Excellent experience! Pleasant staff, Dr. E is awesome!
Very personable and down to earth. Great bedside manner, made me feel comfortable and explained every test in detail. Would highly recommend.
He was very kind and knowledgeable. All around, great visit.
I thought my visit went well. It was my first time and I thought Mr. E made me feel comfortable. He did an overall check-up, but I wish I would've been able to try all daily contacts so that I could personal choose the best one.
Quickest yet most through eye appointment I have been to! Everyone was so nice and Dr. E was fantastic!
Dr. Esfandiari was vey approachable and very helpful. He established a great rapport early on, and I felt very comfortable asking him any questions. He also took my best interests into account with every option. He does not put himself before the patient.
Dr. E. was very professional and efficient. I was overdue for an eye exam, and I left his office feeing very satisified knowing that I received excellent service. He was very helpful when I was selecting my frames and, as a added bonus, it was a very clean and attractive office! I will definitely be seeing him on an annual basis.
No doubt the BEST optometrist EVER! I've never felt so comfortable and had so much help in the 15yrs I've worn glasses. I'd recommend Dr. E to any and everyone!
The Dr. is great.
Dr. Esdandiari is an amazing, caring doctor. He is extremely educated and easy to talk to. Also, I love being able to book my appointment online. Highly recommended!
Efficient, friendly and would go again.
I took my 8-year-old daughter for her first eye exam and Dr. E could not have been more wonderful, kind, funny, gentle and caring to her! He definitely made her feel comfortable and conducted a very in-depth examination. He took the time to make sure both she and I had all our questions and concerns addressed. Very impressed!
He was great with my daughter. Great optometrist office.
The staff and the doctor are very nice and made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend this office.
The service was excellent at the office, no complaints. However, when called prior to the apt to get a feel for their frame/lens costs they were non committal statin there was so much variety they could not give specifics. Turns out the voucher I purchased to cover exam and $150 towards glasses did not even cover the lens, which was single vision. The cheapest frame was $99. So, the cost to me was $160 plus the cost of the voucher, $40. I don't consider that a savings as I could get the same for $99 at Sears or Walmart, without a discount. So, is you like designer service for designer price, this is your place. If you want the best deal for what your basic need is, this is NOT the place.
Knowledgeable. Comfortable. Honest. Fast. He and his staff helped me select my frames. He was honest about how i looked in them. His only concern was how i felt and looked in them not the price. Most ODs will lead you towards the higher priced frames, Dr. Esfandiari did not. Thank you!
Dr. Esfandiari is the best doctor I've ever met. I was seen right away, he was professional, informative and friendly. I highly recommend him to anyone who is receiving anything less than the best treatment.
Highly recommend, extremely friendly and professional.
Customer service was excellent. The staff was very helpful when I was picking my frames and advised me which ones better fitted me. Dr. Rambod Esfandiari was extremely professional and took his time to get to know my history since I was a new patient. I definitely recommend SD Optometry if you like to have a personalized experience and great customer service.
Dr Esfandiari was great! He is really friendly and efficient. I will recommend him to my friends for sure.
Everyone in the office was helpful, polite, and pleasant. The appointment went perfectly, and I was impressed by the professionalism and good nature of the doctor and his staff. I would highly recommend this office to my friends and family.
They were professional and very friendly. I will definitely becoming back for future eye exams and glasses and recommending to everyone I know!
So great and made me feel very welcome and comfortable!
Beautiful Office and very nice people!
It was very thorough, attentive, and overall a great visit.
Very professional and kind doctor.
My first impression when I first came in was how friendly the front desk receptionist was. Dr. Esfandiari was very friendly and easy to talk to, he was a delight to speak with during my eye exam. Highly recommended for anyone looking to have an eye exam.
It was quick and easy. I was looking for a new OD and I will very likely return next year for my next exam. Dr. E was very nice. I got the impression that he would be a good OD for kids because he consistently gave positive feedback, (i.e. "good girl" or "great job, young lady"), when he asked me to do something for the exam. (Which was amusing since he's probably my age.) He seems like a genuine person and I would recommend him based on my experience.
Best experience I've ever had.
Dr Esfandiari was very personable and knowledgeable. Made us feel like family. Awesome experience
Excellent doctor. He was patient, informative, and caring.
my first visit and I had a pleasant experience. I would definitely keep this eye doctor for my choice of vision care and eyeglasses.
Knowledgeable, personable, professional. Highly recommend him.
Dr. E was one of the best medical professionals I've encountered to date. He's quite patient with the procedures, letting you take your time to decide if 1 is clearer or 2. Great sense of humor and explains everything that he's doing, so you really feel like you're involved in your own care, as it should be. A+!
He really knows his profession and we found that my prescription was off for a whole year from an other eye Dr... no wonder I had so many headaches. but he fixed it so now my visionis perfect :-) defenetly bringing my family to him.
Sharp, professional, great communicator. I'm 65 and he told me things about the condition of my eyes that no Optometrist ever had.
Absolutely a PERFECT visit, thanks!!! Process of initial phone call about scheduling, through leaving with my script and glasses ordered, took under two hours!
Dr. Rambod is very knowledgeable and friendly. There was no wait time and he took his time going over the entire exam. I will definitely make him my primary eye physician and refer anyone i know to Dr. Rambod.
Professional and quick.
Very friendly made my visit very pleasant.
It was fantastic! Dr. Esfandiari is very professional, knowledgeable and funny too. I will definitely be recommending him to my family and friends.
