“Years ago an allergist recommended this eye center when I had a sudden eye trauma, and now 10 years later I spend an 1 1/2 driving to Encino to see my doctor. It’s so rare these days for doctors to spend quality time with their patients and care so much about their clients.”
“I took my grandma here to have surgery and it was a great experience! The staff was very helpful and the doctor answered all her questions. The doctors took their time and didn’t rush through the appointments at all. Deciding to have the surgery here was a good decision. Thank you to the doctors and staff once again for this excellent experience!”
