They are well organized and running their business professionally. It's a pleasure to get tests and treatments from their doctors and nurses. I live in Los Angeles but I choose to go to Pasadena clinic for their remarkable services.

The worst doctor visit in my life. The appointment lasted less than 5 minutes. The exam was brief. He was rude and acted condescending to all the questions I asked. After I canceled the follow-up appointment and went to another doctor, the clinic still called/ texted me relentlessly. Just terrible.

oh my, I feel so blessed that I decided to go to Acuity and was assigned to Dr. Chang's care. I felt like he really cared and was attentive. Plus, he fixed my torn retina and also found two other eye problems that now won't be a future problem. Early detection will take care of them. I am thrilled to be able to recommend him.
