The office is run in a professional manner. I was a bit surprised to wait over half an hour before I got in. The test for a new glasses prescription was done quite fast, which seemed efficient, but not the longer one I have been used to for 15 years.

Dr. Kurteeva seemed quite friendly and nice. I was a bit bemused by being told of two "near-conditions" that I seem to have -- Macular Degeneration and Cataracts, that are both closely related to being an old lady. The Cataracts I have known of for years, but the words 'Macular Degeneration' certainly put fear into one's heart -- especially being an OLD PERSON. I guess she was trying to say it is normal for OLD people, but did we have to discuss OLD so very often? And, since I don't have it yet, and maybe won't get it, did we have to even talk about it? We OLD people, who still can shoot in the 90s for 18 holes, really don't like to get hammered by the word "old!" Now I did like her, and I will be back next year.

For the first time I was disappointed in my office visit. The doctor seemed rushed and I had a difficult understanding her accent.

I left confused. Every other time, I understood perfectly what she was saying but the way I understood (misunderstood?) her was contradictory. My gut feeling is that she really cares for her patients. This time perhaps scheduling was the issue?

I was seen in a timely manner and treated with utmost respect. The doctor explained everything that was to be done during the exam and answered all my questions.

The office staff are the best - kind and courteous.

I cme here due to fact I was having problems with another provider pertaing to my prescription, for my eye. When I called Dr Kurteeva office I told them all how eggravated I was with the other provider and how many times the prescription was mishandled. I also made a point of having my records, tests and all data be transferred to Dr Kurteeva office so she could read them. Last week when I go in for appointment it was very brief exam, and I felt she never read my prior records she kept looking at them while I was there but I kept explainig what's gone on in my prior visits to the other provider.

Then when I go to the pharmacy to pick up my refill and get home i see instructions are for me to apply to BOTH eyes. I never neede to place in both only ONE eye. I called the pharmacy they checkd and said yes one eye, the instructions from Dr Kurteeva office are incorrect, and the pharmacist said she would attempt to contact Dr Kurteeva office to get it corrected, said I should just use in one eye as I have in past.

I said I am very particuliar what I take, and do not tolerate mistakes with my health! The pharmacist agreed, and said yes you need to know what you are putting in your body.

After I told them on my consultation visit how disgusted I was with the prior providers mistakes now I feel they are no better.

Difficult to trust these people, seems everything is hurray up and not really very precise in what they do.

Dr. Kurteeva took over Dr. Johnson’s practice and I have found her to be excellent. While new to me this year, I quickly felt very comfortable with her. During my first appointment, I learned it was time for cataract surgery. I was a little concerned having just met her, but she was more than willing to take the time to answer all of my questions. Before the scheduled surgery, I acquired an eye infection, which she treated immediately, fitting me into her busy schedule. My cataract surgery was on 11/11/21 and it was a very smooth process. Her entire staff at Newport Bay surgery center were terrific, and “a well-oiled machine”! Most importantly, during the laser portion of the surgery, Dr. Kurteeva talked to me throughout the process, which can be a but unnerving. She made it so much easier. I have had no issues and anticipate positive results. Expect to have surgery on my other eye in December. Bottom line, I have a high level of confidence in Dr. Kurteeva and California Eye Associates.
