Loved Dr Ruby but her office staff was uncaring and unhelpful during follow up calls. They would not help me understand the circumstances of my glasses only prescription, despite only wearing contacts and walking in wearing them. Nor wouldthey help solve my issue. She was very kind, so I am sorry to write this review but I am choosing to see another optometrist for the second time this year and paying out of pocket, instead of returning to this office.

Good visit. It didn't necessarily feel rushed but did feel quick which makes me feel a little bit uneasy because I have a pretty high prescription. It was nice that they offered to call my insurance provider and see if mydilation would be covered before setting me up with an appointment for one. It's been a week and I haven't yet heard back though.

Dr. Sanchez was soft spoken and helpful -- a perfect combination for someone coming in hot and trying to catch a train in an hour. Turns out I was done with my eye exam and out the door wayy ahead ofschedule, even with all my zany questions. She even made sure to retest one eye just to be sure, after analyzing my old glasses with her machine. 10/10

Dr. Sanchez was very professional and understanding of my situation. I was mostly just interested in some glasses for driving at night, and she did a quick eye exam and pointed out pairs covered by my insurance without trying to upsell.She even threw in a couple daily contact lenses to try out the prescription in the meantime. Would definitely go again!

Office staff was immediately rude and unhelpful. They kept insisting on charging me extra for a contact prescription and even called my health insurance in front of me but shared no additional information based on the call. Zero attempt at customer service. Dr. Sanchez provided satisfactory treatment.
