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 of schedule, 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!

The appointment was perfuntory. They did the minimal required steps and showed minimal interest. I felt like a nuisance administrative task that they had to complete - I did not feel welcome, cared for as a patient or like I was in good hands.

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.

Dr. Ruby Sanchez is great and super friendly! My only problem is I felt rushed during the actual examination. She'd ask 1... or 2, and then ask "or are they the same?" as if I was able to tell in one glance. With my past optometrist, he's always been super patient and kept going back and forth until I was confident in picking one. My first prescription with Dr. Sanchez actually came out totally wrong because I felt rushed to pick something. Also, reception could be a little nicer.

Dr. Ruby Sanchez had a very warm personality that came through as soon as we started talking. She was also very thoughtful - I told her that I was leaving for a 2 week vacation and she made sure to give me two complimentary travel-sized bottles of contact solution to bring with me. She also made a point of checking that contacts for my prescription were in stock so that I could bring them home with me right away. On top of that- she also made sure I got information about a special rebate so that I could save on my contacts. My exam was quick but thorough. She also took the time to explain UV damage to me and how I could prevent it from getting worse. I never knew I had UV damage prior to seeing Dr. Sanchez and will now be more careful about wearing sunglasses!

I don't wear glasses but was having vision problems. I was able to make a same day appointment with Dr Sanchez, a few blocks from my office. She did a good job of explaining the process to me as she went and answered all of my questions thoroughly and thoughtfully. The appointment was quick and to the point but wasn't rushed. I didn't leave the appointment with answers but Dr Sanchez explored the possibilities with me and made me feel I had made some headway at least in figuring out the cause of my vision problems.

I had a great experience with Dr. Sanchez. She had to postpone my appointment due to jury duty but could see me a little later than originally booked. In the end, I was late myself (sorry!) but still she could see me and was extremely nice. Excellent service.

Treatment was satisfactory, but the providers and staff were generally not that friendly and I probably won't go back. They also are not very responsive and don't pick up the phone when I call.
