Valencia, CA |
I was very impressed with Dr. Angelita Palanga-Capistrano. She was thorough and proactive. When I shared some irregularities in my vision, she immediately broadened the scope of examination to include scans and in-depth diagnostics. She ran her findings through a colleague that specialized in retinas before she carefully explained her initial findings in detail and recommended I see a retina specialist. My vision is much better thanks to her. Definitely worth the wait!

I have known Dr.Capistrano for 15years because she operated the eyes of my mother ( she can read at age86 without eyeglasses) and now I got eyes problem , I choose Dr. Capistrano because she is amazing and the best Optalmologist for me and what she did to my mother! I don't mind to drive from Las Vegas to California because I really Trust her , she is so knowledgeable and has my best interest for protecting my eye sight. The best Optalmologist , I recommend her to everyone with eye trouble.????

This is the worst experience I've ever had with any doctor. Appointments are scheduled every 10-15 minutes. The wait is horrible, plus there is no where to sit. Had to stand in entry way for over an hour. Dr. Capistrano is very unprofessional. First thing she said to me, Why are you here, I hardly see kids ( referring to my 7 year old daughter). Who says that? You are in a profession to help, I was sent there by the Pediatrician. The way she talked to me, was inexcusable.

Dr gave me an explanation of all the procedure and of her diagnosis, but I wish her referral was at a closer to home location my wife can't drive after her back surgery and arranged transportation was extremely difficult to arrange. Something closer would save time and $

She even doesn't deserve one star, since she is very rude with her patients and NOT. Supportive, she is just ready to fight. I DON'T recommend her for anyone...

We waited over 45 minutes before being seen by dr for less than 10 minutes only to be told she does not treat my issues after travelling over an 1 hr to office. I had requested notes on day of visit to primary, unfortunately 24 days later neither my primary or myself have received any notes for a 3rd referral to address eye issue in the past 2 years. Office claims no record of either my primary or myself calling which is false considering I have call logs stating how many times I have called.
