Dr. Chew listened to me so well and responded in kind. I have ridiculously sensitive eyes and have trialed several contact lenses with various different ODs and finally settled on a daily that was fairly comfortable. In one visit Dr. Chew adjusted my script and gave me two new types on contact lenses to trial and they felt much better! All in one visit! After my previous experiences this was a refreshing surprise. One of the lenses was a very new line that just came out. I ordered through the office because not only did online stores not have the newest lens, the alternative lens she also prescribed was actually cheaper through the office than on any online retailers I researched. The entire office staff (including Dr. Chew) are very welcoming, kind, and extremely helpful. When my contact order was delayed I called them to see if there was any problems. The woman I talked to (I with I could remember her name!) was very attentive and she contacted the company and called me back to update me on the issue. She had even helped me get free shipping on my order even though it didn't qualify. The frames selection is lacking (but who orders glasses at their OD anymore anyway?) and the office is a little cluttered, but I would highly recommend Dr. Chew's office. I'm so glad I found them so close to my place!

I enjoyed the visit very much. The administrative staff was efficient, friendly and very helpful, especially when they had to look up my VSD information. I waited less than 10 minutes before I was called. Dr. Chew was very friendly, her exam was thorough and quick. She answered all my questions. I will go back again.

My first visit and it was great. Receptionist was quick at getting me set up, and Dr. Chew was solid. She has helpful tips and advice, didn't push any sales for contact lenses or whatnot, and was very nice overall.
