Today is Monday April 11, 2016 my son had an appointment at 10:30 . We had a really bad experience with the Doctor he yelled at me and my son and he threatens me even though I was defending my son for what he told him and he gave us attitude when my son explained to him on why he wasn't cooperating with him we had a bad experience with that Doctor and we wouldn't recommend anyone to go to that Doctor ever

I've been with Dr. Havunjian for about years now. He's always been attentive to my and my wife's needs. I made a point when first signing up for VSP to choose a certified opthomologist, not an optometrist. However, Dr. Havunjian's office has a very decent optometry department as well. We've usually gotten our frames and lenses there as well. The staff is courteous and competent. Sometimes, there is a little wait, but only because of Dr. Havunjian's popularity, and the fact that he never rushes.
