Dr. Sonia Sirounian was great! She saw me almost immediately and was even okay with me coming in a little late as 210 traffic was horrendous. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends as she helped me tremendously with battling my dry eye. If you're reading this, THANKS DOCTOR!!!

Dr. Sirounian was great. She gave my daughter a very thorough exam and provided information and home remedies for dry eye caused by excessive cell phone/computer use. There was no wait time and the office had a very nice selection of glasses.

Really quick, friendly and dedicated service. Sons made sure I was getting the right product and the consultation didn't feel rushed as I have had with other opticians before. She even provided me with some product samples to test before I made a purchase! Highly recommend!

Kind of Rude and condesandant, I came early for my appointment , she was not friendly at all . I can tell she was stress maybe because she has not help . Trying to cut corners but at the end her new clients pay for it. While i was having my exam, customers came to her store and she dropped my exam to help them and try to sell them, like I am chopped liver or something left me waiting on the exam room for a long time , no respect , no common sense . She kept me waiting and i couldn't handle it ,so spoke up . She tried to fake appologized but didn't work, not very real. I got my prescription and left. She is not a bad person but she definitely need to focus on what she is good at, her practice. Get some help or hire someone. greed doesn't pay . Developing relationships with your customers to clients will. repetitive satisfaction will.

Dr. Sona Sirounian is amazing. My husband and I were expecting a normal eye visit. Dr. Sirounian made our visit fun and educational. She gave us plenty of information on how to take care of our vision. She helped us pick our glasses. She is amazing. She took the time to answer our questions. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Sirounian was both professional as well as friendly with me during my yearly eye exam. I never felt as though I was being brushed off as "just another patient" like with so many other physicians. She took the time to actually talk to me and get to know me during my exam. She also carefully explained every activity that she was doing, since it had been a while since my last eye exam. It was great to understand what each step was for, and how it affected me. Wonderful experience, and will absolutely be using her from now on!

I needed to find a new Optometrist and booked Dr. Sirounian because she had an appointment time that worked for me and ended up loving the experience! She got my prescription right on my first visit, and I felt like my previous Optometrist never got it quite right. I needed new contact lenses and a pair of glasses with my new prescription and she put a rush order on them so I didn't have to wait long. She was very nice and patient with me while I tried on a million frames. I'll definitely be going back to her for all future eye exams.

Sona needs a secretary or someone to manage her schedule and (especially) answer the phone for her. One person working the office is not enough. The customer patient before me ran over 20 minutes into my appointment because Sona had to assist her trying to pick out glasses. I was warned by that she was behind schedule when I first checked in but again, someone else could be hired to help with a task like this. Then my appointment was constantly interrupted by Sona answering phone calls and checking cell phone messages throughout. She apologized for the interruptions but took advantage of my patience. This was a work day during my lunch break and I ended up getting back to work very late because of all the delays. It was very frustrating and inconvenient. I'm sure Sona is great at her job and works hard but the professional environment was very unsatisfactory for me as her customer.

Best eye doctor appointment I've ever had -- no exaggeration. Both the doctor and the front desk lady were a pleasure to deal with, and helped me decide on the right contacts and glasses. Also, the eye exam itself was not even nearly as uncomfortable as it usually is.

My husband and I just had a present visit with Dr. Sona and Elena. Dr. Sona was very thorough with the exam and had nice selections of frames. Both Dr. and Elena really took the time to make sure we get the perfect pair for us and explain about different types of lenses. Very knowledgeable. Also, they served tea and treats while we were waiting and choosing frames which made our experience relaxing and nice:) I highly recommend this place!

I have been wearing glasses off an on since I was 4 years old and now as an adult with my 13 year old daughter getting glasses, I feel confident in saying I have much experience with material for comparison when it comes to eye doctors. I have never felt more comfortable or had more explanation than I have here in regards to eye health, insurance coverage, and prescription options. I would recommend her to everyone and plan on remaining patients of hers for many years to come. We are very happy!

This was my first visit to Dr. Sirounian and I was really impressed with her professionalism and knowledge base. As a teacher, I find myself explaining things to people all the time. Dr. Sirounian did a fantastic job of explaining the condition of my eyes and cleared up a misunderstanding I had regarding laser surgery. Her office assistant was equally impressive with her knowledge of the business/insurance side of optometry. She has my insurance information already printed and had highlighted some of the more common benefits etc. They both have a great sense of humor and I had a great time getting some really "Fly" eye-wear. They also had a very flexible payment system. I would highly recommend Dr. Sirounian if you are needing new glasses or if you are not happy with your current optometrist.
