Been coming to see Dr. Lai for 15 years or so, the staff and Dr. Lai are wonderful people. Patient and willing to answer any question you have regarding your prescription lenses

Eyeworks is fantastic. They have a large variety of frames and I always received excellent customer service. They are very good at helping you choose a pair of glasses that look nice for your eye/face shape and coloring. I have been going to them for 5+ years and highly recommend them.

Dr. Lai is so patient, kind and a great listener. He is not ever rushed or trying to move me on for the next patient. I had a tender issue yesterday to discuss and he was most "present" for me. I appreciate him very very much! Thank you Dr. Lai for being you! I went to Dr. Drinen's office yesterday after I left your appointment and a colleague of mine was in the waiting room. She gave me great accolades about Dr. Drinnen and she said he did her cataract operation. THANK YOU! I am getting strong xoxoxo

Great service and nice staff. Did not feel rushed. Only thing I didn't like was getting hit with a surprisingly high co-pay (services added that I thought was included in my regular check up were not communicated upfront).

Staff is always very helpful. Can get a bit crowded on Saturdays, but they try to get you up and running ASAP.

Nice little office with relatively friendly staff. I came in for a standard eye exam and prescription glasses mid-afternoon. Scheduling appointments are suggested (the person on the phone non-excitedly let me know that they'd rather not have walk-ins), and I was able to get an appointment for roughly three days out. The exam itself was standard, and the optometrist was nice and easy to talk to. The staff members that helped me with the eye checkup/glasses selection were nice too. So the only off-putting thing that comes to mind was the appointment scheduling part.

The other downside may be parking. You are at the mercy of street parking at whatever time you decide to drop in. Having said that, I would not mind coming back.

Friendly, competent staff!

I love Dr Lai and how he pays attention to my medical history and makes very reasonable recommendations that are *not* geared to "sell me more stuff". Their staff are courteous and professional as well. I don't wear glasses very often but when I need to get new frames, I like their selection as well as their help in picking out frames that compliment my face.

I called with a problem tooth and they got me in within 2 hours. The staff was super friendly and Dr. Shigihara completely understood my unnatural fear of Dentists. He made me feel at ease and talked me through all of my issues. I thought I had a cracked tooth, turns out it was an infection. He prescribed some antibiotics and ibuprofen. I started feeling better within hours. Next day I felt great. I am scheduled to go for a serious cleaning this week and likely I need some teeth pulled so we are just getting started but I feel like I have found "my" Dentist

My expectations are very high concerning quality of work and pain/comfort. Dr. Dini exceeds in both areas but brings even more to the experience. She has such a calming and gentle presence every time i visit. She even offered her private cell number on one of my last visits just in case I had any problems, promising to meet me in her office. Her level of dedication to my well being is rarely seen and so appreciated. She takes the time to discuss all options and helps me make choices that are right for me. She is a rare jewel. Her staff are equally attentive and professional. Convenient location with easy parking is a plus.
