I was seen a little over 30 min after my scheduled time. I was not, however, seen by Xinsheng Zhu. I was instead seen by another women who worked at the office. She was nice and had a kind bedside manner but was not the doctor I was expecting. They did not have the full selection of contacts I asked for (dailys vs weeklys in different brands w/ astigmatism).
