" This was my second visit with Dr. Waterman, I had another eye doctor before being assigned to her. During my first visit with her I wasn't comfortable with her. I waited over an hour to see her. This angered me because I have never had to wait so long see an eye doctor in this office. After meeting with her for my second appointment, I found her to be friendly and personable. I like her, and I think we are going to get along quite well. I've only seen her twice, but I think she's a good doctor. "

" I've never received such professional quality care from this office. I've complained in the past with regard to the lack of courtesy and respect shown by some of the staff members. However, yesterday was an amazing experience and the personnel deserves to be recognized, especially Jazamette (sp?) and the young lady responsible for taking pictures, whose name escapes me. What a difference. They were courtesy, professional, welcoming and immediately put me at ease. "

 April 24, 2019

" The overall quality of care provided would have earned an "Excellent." However, I find a couple of the staff members are in dire need of a class in customer / patient service, especially, the young lady responsible for eye topography scanning. I've been a patient at this office for many years having monthly appointments, and since her employment, she has NEVER introduced herself, has never extended the courtesy of a smile and a warm greeting (i.e. good morning, good afternoon). She brusquely calls out my last name and tells me to take a seat as if she's doing me a favor by doing her job. During my April 23 appointment, her demeanor was so unprofessional, I had to bring it to Dr Gancayc's attention. "

 April 23, 2019

" Good bless you all for your care and service. "

 April 23, 2019

" The staff was great very professional, concerning and helpful from the time I arrived until the time I left the office. "

 April 13, 2019

" Dr. Gancayco took time to explain the results of the tests that we're performed before he saw me. "

 March 28, 2019

" I think Dr. Ghafouri is an excellent doctor and I would recommend him to my friends and relatives. I think that some of the people who administer the two tests, the one with the little white lights and even the one with the star need to be better trained. I've had some that do a good job when administering the tests and others are not that good. They keep telling you that you are moving when you know that you are not. The lady that administered the eye test with the star that I had on my last visit to the office was very good. I didn't have to continue to repeat the test over and over again as on previous tests that I had taken on prior visits to the office. "
