Visit was not with Valerie Winfrey, as scheduled. We were seen by Dr. Tuong Van Dang. She was absolutely great. She was very professional, easy going and explained everything she was doing which left us with NO questions. We have found our eye specialist - no need to ever go elsewhere .

Visit was good - however, wait time was too long. I was with an assistant or doctor for a total of 10 minutes at most, but I was in the office for more than an hour. Service was fine but not efficient, I'd rather have a specific time to be there instead of an hour long window in which I'm sitting and waiting for 50+ minutes.

I really enjoyed my visit to San Antonio Eye Professionals. This is my second time there and they're very courteous and prompt. I was seen 10 minutes after my appointment time, which wasn't too bad considering it was very busy in there. Dr. Winfrey was very explanatory, helpful and polite when going over my digital eye exam and breaking down in detail what the photos meant. I would highly recommend her.

I felt like I was pressured to have extra services for more money. Also my vision was off on my right eye, which was obvious as I could not read most lines on the vision chart but nothing was adjusted. The issue was ignored (seemed they just wanted me in and out as fast as possible) and my vision was blurry when I received my trial contacts. Going to see another eye doctor to get a corrected prescription. Thanks but no thanks.

Dr. Winfrey was friendly and courteous, with a great sense of humor! She took the time to explain in details the results of diabetes eye exam. Not even my opthamologist does it as well as she did. She definitely has my trust and will be going back to her for my next yearly exam.

I have been seeing Dr. Winfrey for over 3 years now and during that time she has always been extremely knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely concerned with my optical issues, and helped to resolve them. Dr Winfrey sets the example for all medical professionals to follow, it would be great if all physicians demonstrated her professional expertize and medical knowledge, and especially concern for patients well-being.

She's cute, fast, and knows what she's doing, but she can be really snooty. She was nicer to my son than me. And I had asked for a legitimate question. Her answer may as well have been DUH!
