I would not recommend her to anyone I went in there with half vision due to a foreign object in my eye she wanted to charge me over five hundred dollars mind u I have no insurance then refused to see me cause I don't have full payment and to her i t didn't matter I was a combat veteran went to another eye doc today Dr.burry in kissimmee he charged me a hundred dollars Dr.nguyen has no morals and should be ashamed of herself I don't know how she can sleep at night

I felt this was a money grubbing operation. I had 4 appointments in a month, lots of insurance billing eye tests and was told first that I did not need glasses. Then I was told at last appointment by an associate doctor who barely spoke English that I needed glasses 2 days before I was leaving FL. So I asked if I could have prescription for glasses to take with me. I was told I would have to pay an additional $35 for actual prescription. Waste of time and money. I don't trust them.

Staff horribly rude. Office is taking insurance money and charging patients. Dr. is friendly but not accurate on all diagnosis
