I've been to different optometrists over the course of 20 years. I must say, this was the best visit I've had. The wait time was minimal and the tests were done quickly and efficiently. I'm so glad that I can say we have found our permanent place for our optometry needs.

My visit to Dr. Nguyen was very time efficient and easy. I don't think that I even waited 5 minutes before he saw me. Today was a follow-up visit and the entire staff were courteous and professional. The office and waiting areas were very comfortable and Dr. Nguyen explained what procedures that were going to happen as well as answered any questions that I had for him. I think that he is a very good doctor and a great fit for anyone looking for a permanent family eye-care professional.

Dr. Nguyen is always wonderful. He is very accurate with figuring out my prescription for contacts, something not all optometrists have been able to do for me. He has a perfect bedside manner and makes me feel comfortable and informed. I love hearing his stories about meeting NBA players. I would definitely recommend him to others. He even fit me in last minute today because I ran out of contacts!

I had not had an eye exam in over five years prior to visiting with Dr. Nguyen and was a little nervous initially. The office has a cozy ambiance, and Dr. Nguyen and his staff were very warm, welcoming and thorough with the eye exam, details about what my insurance would cover and the exam results. I was very comfortable and left the office very pleased with my overall experience.

Excellent! There was something going on with my eye that scared me. He explained what it was and reassured me that it was something from my childhood and nothing to worry about. However he was going to monitor me for a few months. Dr. Nguyen is very patient, understanding, and made me feel, for that moment, that I was his only patient. Been going to him a few years and he is always the same, refreshing demeanor always.
