Great location and fantastic doctor.
Dr. Visanji was generally personable, but I felt like she was trying to up-sell me the whole time. I also was irritated that because she prescribed me eye drops after examining me, my visit wasn't considered an annual check up according to her office and she billed me through my regular insurance instead of VSP. And I never got my eye drops prescription, even though it was supposed to be sent to my pharmacy. I won't be returning to her.
Lovely Doctor. Easy appointment. I would definitely return!

Sophia was great. Very kind and answered all of my questions. The male Optyx sales specialist (or receptionist- not sure what his role was) didn't seem as available though.

I took my 8 year old daughter in to have her eyes checked and Sophia was fantastic with her!
My visit with Ms. Visanji was excellent. She was very professional, friendly, and easy to talk with. She paid attention to my concerns and was extremely thoughtful and helpful in answering questions I had about a minor condition on my eyeball that I asked her about. I would recommend her without hesitation. :)
I was seen right away and the appointment was quick. Sophia was friendly and had answers to all of my questions. I was glad my eyesight is still good and I don't need any correction at this time. I was expecting them to try to sell me on buying glasses anyway for reading but that didn't happen. Very professional.
