Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I've been going to Legarreta Eye Center, and Dr. O'Connor for several years now. They have been through, professional, and best of all limited wait times. Dr. O'connor has paid careful attention to my potential eye problems and has kept me informed every step of the way. He has answered all my questions and assured me we were on the right track. I just cannot say enough positives about Dr. O'Connor and the staff at Legarreta Eye Center.

Dr. Oconner was wonderful! He diagnosed my condition quickly, got me on the right meds, and had my issue resolved within days. I had an acute eye ulcer, and was in a great amount of pain. Thankfully I no longer have to worry about losing my sight due to the quick actions of Dr. Oconner. I will definitely be a continued patient. I cant thank the entire staff enough! Including the gentleman who checks me in. He remembers my name every time!

He is very courteous, professional and knowledgeable. Explained my findings and answered the questions I had. Especially about my eye pressure being high and concerns about glaucoma. He explained what it is, what the future options are and the plan we would be taking for now. I highly recommend him.
