I had a great experience each time I've visited. The team is great and helpful. My daughter has seen Dr. Nguyen and she was helpful and listened to my concerns. She also didn't try to sell me something I didn't need like some physicians do. I appreciate her help. Dr. Virani was also helpful and took the time to help me and her team through a little mistake that was made.

UNPROFESSIONAL. DISORGANIZED. RUDE This was a terrible experience....AGAIN. Dr. Virani is okay. She will answer your questions, but only after she knows that you are unsatisfied with her office. She has a very condescending tone, and will never take fault for her staff members' unprofessionalism. She should be absolutely ashamed of the staff that she has working/representing the office, as well as herself. I arrived 30 minutes early to sign the paperwork that I completed online. I approached the front desk to check-in, gave them my name, and appointment time to which the receptionist replied, "You do know that your appointment isn't until 10:30, right?" I am thinking to myself, as I am getting her other requested items of insurance and ID, 'What time would have been a logical time to arrive to be processed being as I have to fill out/ sign some paperwork?' Of course she has to hand me the updated paperwork that I filled out online to be signed. After completing all of the signatures and handing them to her, I am reminded again of my appointment time. I return to the sitting area and pull out my personal work that needs to be completed. I KNOW THAT I WILL BE WAITING UNTIL MY APPOINTMENT TIME---THIS IS NOT MY FIRST APPOINTMENT. However, I am not called back to even begin the obstacle course of eye exam machines until 10:50. (Now had I arrived exactly at 10:30--I wonder what time I would have actually been called back.) I am asked to sign another paper, but I had questions about the paper because it was a new policy paper. Not one person seemed to be able to answer the questions, so the paper was taken from me and I was told, "You don't have to sign it." However, when Dr. Virani comes into the room at 11:20--guess what paper needs a signature. She doesn't know why I chose not to sign it. I told her I had questions to which she clearly was annoyed to be answering. (Due to the date of the appointment and insurance fiscal year some parts were not going to be covered--I was fine with paying out of pocket.--I even said that to her. She asked if I would like to come back at a later date so insurance can cover all of it. I said "No. I have already been here for almost an hour." (This calculation was only including my appointment time of 10:30. I was not counting the 30 minutes that I was early.) She replies with "Well you were early, your appointment was at 10:30" THREE TIMES I HAVE BEEN TOLD I WAS EARLY. Each time with an attitude. At this point I am over it. I will never be going back to that poor excuse of a doctor's office. *It should be noted that I was ONLY person in the office with an actual appointment until a gentleman showed up at 10:20, and was promptly taken back after his signatures. (I assume his appointment was before 10:30 because that would be the only logical explanation as to why this gentleman was in and out before I was taken back.) There were other patients that were picking up things, but every single one of those people seemed to also leave dissatisfied. It should also be noted that while I was waiting I got to hear all about how some of the ladies feel another is not doing her job (she of course was not there that day), and details about their personal life while they all stand or sit around. No wonder they don't want a patient in the waiting area more than 3 minutes prior to their appointment. *

Actually my family of 5 is with Doctor Shiroz since she open, back in 2005, which is over 10 years now. She is a dedicated family doctor, who pays attention into details about our family health individually, in different cases throughout the years. She has been doing a excellent job for all of us. We highly recommend Doctor Shiroz as exceptional optometrist.
