Review of Dr. Sato

-

I’ve been going to Dr.Sato to control glaucoma for a few years. She is very nice, soft spoken but very direct and honest. Staff changes over but all are competent.

Review of Dr. Baker

- |

Went in for an eye exam/prescription renewal, but he ran a bunch of tests that I never requested/authorized. Because he dilated my eyes, he couldn't check my eye sight, and said I had to return another time. Got stuck with $60 copay and left without getting what I needed. To make things worse, I receive another bill for $60 not covered by my insurance. Called billing dept and they said because services were rendered, there is nothing they can do.

Review of Dr. Sato

- in CA, CA |

Worst Dr. visit ever! That office is like a zoo, stuffy, staff is rude, waiting time ridiculous (3+hours). Dr. Sato has a strange demeanor, cold and not personable. I had to switch because my ophthalmologist does not accept my new insurance. They lost my medical records twice and lied to me, the Dr. treated me without even having my medical records! They insisted on overcharging me. I disputed the charge with my CC company and waited for the EOB which confirmed the amount that I told them I owe.

Review of Dr. Kurata

-:Los Angeles |

12pm 3/8/2017 Kurata gave me a new prescription for my eye drop for glaucoma. I was told to make sure to get Generic, not Brand that would cost me $300~400. I went to Walgreen at 3pm the same day to pick up. They gave me Brand and it was $400. I requested them to change to Generic. They said there is NO Generic for TRAVATAN and will have to request the doctor a new prescription. They called as well as faxed the request to the doctor's office. I called Dr, too but NO RESPONSE. It is 5:30pm 3/10

Review of Dr. Marsico

- in Torrance, CA |

Dr. Marsico performed cataract surgery on Tuesday, February 14, 2017. It was a posterior subcapsular extremely dense cataract in my left eye. Since birth I have vision only in my left eye. I was going blind. It was crucial to find a highly skilled doctor. I found him in Dr. Marsico and was confident my eye was in great hands. He performed a successful surgery. I see vibrant colors and my dim world is over. Dr. Marsicio is a gifted surgeon . He gave me my sight and life back.

Review of Dr. Katow

- in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA |

Dr Katow did a fantastic job with my eye surgery. She was thorough and took all the time I needed to get my questions answered. She was specific with instructions and telling me what to expect. I was very happy with the result . Her staff is nice and caring. I like the office decoration. They took care of all the legwork with the insurance company. I have sent family and friends to her and they are happy also. I highly reccommend her for your eyes. I like the selection of eyeglass frames and sun
