Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Pham is the best! She is the best doctor I've ever had for my astigmatism. She is the only doctor who only needed to give me one contacts sample-the very first one worked perfect! Normally I have to try 5 or 6 but she nailed it the first time. She is patient and kind, and works with you to get your lens prescription just right too. Thanks Dr. Pham!"

  • "My first appointment was easy & quick! Very informative, helpful, professional & polite! Would completely recommend this office!"
    Christina S.
  • "I go to this optometry (located in the Sears building) for my contact lens eye exam. The doctor and the staff are so friendly and nice that I wouldn't go anywhere else. Plus, exam fee is one of the best deals I've seen around. The other optometrists I've met always rushed through the exam and didn't even give me a time to ask questions. But Dr. Pham always offers to answer any questions or concerns regarding my eyes or lens."
