1st time visiting this provider & office and I will 100% continue to come here for all of my childrens eye needs!! The office was clean, the waiting room was kid friendly, ALL of the staff was AMAZING! Dr. Otaibi was VERY thorough! She took time to explain everything to me. She listened when I spoke to her. She listened when my son (8yrs) spoke to her! She is an awesome dr!

We really liked her.

Wait room time was TWO hours!!!!! This was with a 5 year old! Not acceptable at all. This appointment was scheduled months ago! Will NOT go back. Awful experience.

January 26, 2018

doctor was friendly but felt very rushed because we saw her two hours after scheduled time and it was obvious she was hurrying.

January 25, 2018

this provider did a great job relating to my child, as she delivered news that came as a disappointment at this visit. she gave us plenty of information and space to process the concerns that my daughter had.

January 24, 2018

2 hr waiting time for entire visitvery disruptive waiting area, no intervention when families and children sharing waiting room where loud, inappropriate and screaming

January 22, 2018

very exceptional

January 22, 2018

the doctor seemed very knowledgeable and I felt like she was taking the time to review the tests and pictures to be sure she was giving me the correct information. As a mom, I am nervous when there may be a medical issue with my children. I felt good about how the doctor presented the findings to me and eased my anxiety and concerns.

My son wears glasses, and I have been taking him to see Dr. Otaibi every 6 months since he started wearing them. Dr. Otaibi is great, but to be honest, I DREAD taking him to these appointments because of the wait time.

We were at the office for two hours or more, the majority of the time was spent waiting to see the doctor. At least we were offered snacks while we waited. This was ridiculous. I was expecting paperwork regarding the eye surgery my son is going to have. I received none. I just have to try and remember everything the doctor told us.
