Dr. Kashi was excellent. She explained everything she was doing and wanted to do in a follow up. She listened to me and very efficiently found the best prescription contacts I have ever worn. The staff was amazing. I had a great experience from start to finish.

I was personally examined and treated by Dr. Sara Kahen-Kashi on Monday – 29 January 2019. I am an Emergency Room Physician and interact with many other healthcare professionals on a near daily basis. I found her to be exceptional andI highly recommend this eye specialist without any reservation. The office was very spacious, clean and modern. Additionally, I found Dr. Kahen-Kashi to be extremely professional and highly competent. She is compassionate and extremely patient. She is extremely gentle and careful and took her time in performing a complete and thorough examination of my eyes. A great Doctor is always backed up by a great team. Case in point, everyone in her office was extremely polite and friendly. I appreciated that I was not pressured into making any unnecessary purchases. Unfortunately, her optical store did not take my insurance; however – she was kind enough to offer me a very generous discount. They had a really nice and lovely selection of frames. A+ Overall – Was an extremely worthwhile visit with an exceptional healthcare provider. Again – I highly recommend and will be sending this individual my own personal referrals. Thank you Dr. Kahen-Kashi for great care!

It had been a few years since I last tested my eyes. I’m very pleased with my visit with Dr. Sara. She was very knowledgeable and explained to me in detail what she observed when checking on my eyes. She mademe feel very comfortable and was able to provide a treatment that she provided step by step instructions. She even helped me schedule a follow up to ensure that the treatment is working. I will definitely be coming back!

I loved my first visit with Dr. Sara Kahen-Kashi. She was very direct/clear with no fuss and carried a super cool and kind undercurrent during the entirety of our appointment. She shed some light on my eye health that I hadno clue to and also eased my concerns on a issue I was making up on my head. The receptionist (who's name I didn't ask, sorry ??) was super sweet and attentive. I will definitely handle all my eye health concerns and needs with Dr. Kahen-Kashi.

After avoiding the eye doctor for years, I had a great experience at this office. Both the receptionist and Dr. Kahen-Kashi were attentive, kind and listened to my concerns. I was afraid this would be like any run-of-the-mill optical shop wherethey push you to buy glasses from them, but Dr. Kahen-Kashi was knowledgeable and showed that she actually cared. Highly recommended.

I was very happy with my overall experience with the doctor and the other person that worked there. They clearly knew what they were doing and were very efficient which made the process smooth and quick but still thorough. The otherthing that I really appreciated was that they weren’t trying to push expensive products on me to try and make extra money. In fact, they explained how I actually didn’t need certain things added to my glasses which saved me money. I hope you have a similar experience but please remember, it’s not only up to the doctor to make it go well.

Friendly, knowledgable staff in a super clean, spacious office. Good location with street meters, both times took me no time to find parking. Dr. Kahen-Kashi is very personable and immediately made me feel comfortable. She performed a verythorough eye exam. The receptionist was also personable and extremely helpful with the process of getting a new pair of frames. Their office has a wonderful selection of reasonably priced frames and some that are totally covered by your insurance. I will absolutely recommend this shop!

It’s was such an awful experience. Our wait time was at least one hour if not more. I really wanted to walk out. They are rude and unprofessional speaking Spanish in front all waiting clients. This was not a routine checkupand they opted to take people without an appointment instead of us with an appointment and wanted for an hour. I would never recommend this place! Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.
