Dr. Kim was thorough in his examination, with a stoic yet gentle manner that helped put me at ease. Very quickly he was able to converge on my ideal prescription, leaving me with a sense of high confidence in his diagnosis.(With other optometrists I've felt less sure of the results, but Dr. Kim's prescription felt perfect.) His recommendations were clearly based on my concerns and motivated by an interest in my well-being.

This was my second visit with Dr. Kim and he was great. We had some concerns with my vision after my first appointment and he gave me a referral for a specialist (all is good thankfully) and he followed up withme at my appointment and reassured me that there haven't been any changes and nothing to be concerned about for now. Dr. Kim is very knowledgeable and the staff was very friendly and helped me find a great new pair of glasses.

Quick and painless eye exam. I was seen right away and had the quickest vision test of my life. Excellent selection of frames in store. Dr. Kim was very professional. However I would have liked more explanation of the different testsI was doing other than what to put my face in and where to look. Dr. Kim either expects you to know already or to trust him, or both.

I was there for an annual checkup and contact lense prescription. The doctor was very rushed, and during the entire appointment he did not ask me any questions or did not ask if I have any questions/concerns. He did not answermy questions with care and dismissed them mostly. It seems that all he wanted to do was to get the prescription done so I could go ahead and order lenses from them. Will never go back.

This was a great experience as I needed an annual exam quickly for my license renewal and my insurance had just updated. I was able to make an appointment the same day and the wait time was minimal. Dr. Kim wasquick and professional and the staff was extremely helpful.

My visit was very basic so I don’t have too much to say or point out! I think the optometrist himself was amazing! Nice, gentle, experienced, patient, and very respectful. Something you see less often in younger professionals. But the secretarylady who processes paperwork and explains your insurance was pretty unpleasant. And just left a bad taste in my mouth. That’s all.

Pretty old medical equipment. The doctor didn't give me a chance to ask a question nor he asked me one if I have any concerns. I wish I could ask more questions, rather he let me out of the office as quick as possible.

I’ve been coming here for years. Exams are usually quick and easy. I’ve recommended this place to many of my coworkers and friends. But after the last 3 interactions I had with the optical associates, I’m not coming back. They don’tgive you a breakdowns their services and bark at you if you question them. There’s no reason to deal with people who lack etiquette, especially when there are plenty of other options around.
