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.

Very pleasant and high professional disposition.
Wonderful, attentive, very nice and helpful.
She is very professional, and caring. I have been a client for many years. There are many eye clinics closer to me but I won't change. Dr. Virani uses the latest technology and is always up to date on all the newest frame styles.
Dr, Virani was very professional and gave me a complete vision examination. She explained my issues in easy to understand language, drawing a diagram and explaining my options. I would highly recommend her to anyone. The office was immaculate, her staff was very polite and quite helpful in showing me selections for new frames.
Dr. Virani and her staff were very kind and welcoming. I was seen right away, the nurse technician was very personable and humorous. Dr. Virani was very caring and thorough. It was nice to have a doctor actually take their time explaining things. She really showed that she cares a lot for her patients.
Great doctor and listened to my concerns and helped with finding alternative to my current contacts.
We went to Dr. Virani with a severe eye infection that was complicated by the treatment of other professionals. She got us back on the path to healing with clear, concise directions for treatment. Her expertise was valued and appreciated!!
My visit was very good. People were extremely nice. Shiroz was very nice as well and very straightforward. Looking to visit soon when possible
the whole family (6 of us) has been Dr. Shiroz' patients for the past 10 years ... in short, we wouldn't go anywhere else ... top professional service in a real family atmosphere.
She was very thorough and pleasant!
We had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Nguyen, she was wonderful with both of my children.
I got to see Dr. Nguyen and she was fabulous.
DR ROSE wasnt there but the other young lady was very nice and very professional i really enjoyed my visit.
Very professional polite and friendly
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. *
Wonderful. This was the fastest we've ever been seen.
She is really nice doctor
Dr. Virani was really good and the whole staff was friendly.
Dr. Nguyen did a terrific job! Very professional.
The office staff was inefficient?.They were discussing personal problems in front of me while I wait for the verification of my insurance.
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.
Dr. Virani is always professional and has great advice without being pushy.
As usual I was greeted and treated with cheerful and caring professionals. Dr. Verani is efficient and always leaves me with the feeling that my eyes are getting the best possible care.
Dr. Virani was very pleasant and easy to talk to. I was able to ask her several questions and she was more than happy to answer every one of them. I also felt that she cared about my overall health and was helping me chose the best course of action for my vision. Just love her!
Lot of hidden charges,squeezing money from patients
I have been going to Dr. Virani for a few years for me, my wife & kids. I am inquisitive and she is very knowledgeable and also patient in answering questions. She is very friendly and the office staff are very professional. Several times my kids have damaged their frames and I have gone in and got them tightened or fixed for free. I am very happy with the service.
Love her! Very sweet lady and extremely thorough.
She was excellent. She was so kind and patient with my 8 year old. we will take our whole family to her now. thank you
I took my 12 year old for his yearly vision test and I was satisfied with the level of interaction between the doctor and my son. Her interaction with him was that of respect and she explained her findings thoroughly.
She is extremely professional and I love how she covers every detail with you about your situation. ??
She is the Best in her field. She not only has the best technology, she explains and answers all our concerns with care and scientific backing.
Dr. Nguyen is great - very helpful and patient!
Rose takes the time to understand your needs and offers reasonable solutions - she's great! I've relied on her great service over the last ten years - despite the fact that I've since moved out of the area; I make the longer drive for the fine service that she and her amazing staff provide! :-)
Dr. Virani was very thorough in my examination. She took the time to work through issues in the eye exam. She listened to my questions and concerns and addressed all with a very caring and professional manner.
Excellent service!! The Dr. Shiroz is very kind :)
Dr. Virani is great, and all the TSO staff are awesome.
We were disappointed that we had to wait so long today. Not sure if they over booked today, or an emergency came up? In the past, Doctor Virani has fit me in when I had a problem, so I would have understood that.
The doctors here are very thorough and explain everything. They have excellent diagnostic equipment that has picked up on some concerns I would have never known. The staff is always so friendly. I would recommend a weekday appointment. Saturday's are very busy.
I love Dr. Virani! By far one of my favorites of all time. Love it that she remembers me and my family and our history, only seeing us once a year :-)
she was nice and polite and knowledgable and answered all my questions.
Dr. Virani takes the time to explain the results of the tests and is very thorough.

I was very frustrated at the long wait. If I can make my appointment on time, I should get the same respect and be seen on time.
Very caring and informative, will return.
She is exceptional at explaining what is important and in making her patients feel comfortable - she made my day!
Dr Virani is the best my whole family goes to her and we love her! Clancy family
She is awesome! She took the time to explain everything to us and my son. I love the fact she shared the images of the eyes with us and explained what we were seeing.
Was great and quick
Very thorough exam.
Was disappointed with the 'automatic' addition of a "medical" process to what I thought was simply a very good eye examination. I feel the optician took advantage of their status and did not inform me well enough that the click of a button would result in extra costs. Those extra costs to myself where not great but who knows how much the insurance company would have to pay. This type of practice explains the high cost of health care.
We are always Very Pleased with Dr. Virani. She is very Knowledgable and we never feel rushed.
Great visit as always. Everyone was very helpful, courteous and professional. Since my appointment was on a Friday, I saw Dr. Nguyen (spelling?) and I was pleased with my appointment.
Staff was both professional and friendly. Dr. was attentive, provided complete explanations in a manner that made us feel very at ease.
She answered all my questions and she's willing to work with me in treating my other eye problems besides the usual prescription issues. Her staff are always professional and ready to help when I need something addressed.
She was very caring and took her time.
I felt she was very informative and I felt very comfortable with her. I found her honesty and helpfulness was superb. I am a nurse and I have worked with and around many doctors from different specialties and she rates with the best.
Very happy with the service. Thank you.
She was very informative and took the time out to explain every detail of my visit.
