sara was excellent. she took concerns she had and was on top of ordering the tests necessary.

August 25, 2017

Went in for a follow up eye exam. Took 2 and a half hours.

Dr. Otaibi has been excellent. She really takes the time to make sure all our questions are answered and does not make us feel rushed. She is very friendly and great to talk with.

August 08, 2017

Dr. Otaibi has been caring and wonderful during a stressful time for our family. She has ensured that we were fit into her schedule even on days when it wasn't optimal for the office, to ensure we received prompt, continued, quality care. She has also done a wonderful job keeping our primary Opthamologist informed of her care plan for our daughter.

This provider was absolutely amazing for my son to be seen the first time.. he was very nervous,but the entire staff made him very comfortable..

Dr. Otaibi is the best doctor I have come in contact with in my years. She has been seeing my son since he was young and remembers him at each and every visit. She makes a point to take the time to sit and talk with me about concerns and updates regarding my sons health. I have spoken to her after hours for additional questions and she makes suggestions regularly. it is clear that she genuinely cares about her patients and the care that is provided to them. I recommend Dr. Otaibi regularly and have never had a negative experience with her.

The wait was exceptionally long. We saw the nurse right away, but then waited over an hour to see the doctor only to then have to dilate my son's eyes. Then we were told we'd have to wait 20-30 minutes for his eyes to dilate, and we weren't seen again for 50 minutes. My son had a very hard time focusing and cooperating, but he's been sitting in a waiting room for over two hours. We could've saved a ton of time by just dilating his eyes at the beginning of the appointment.

My child's care provider has been awesome.

June 13, 2017

my son is two and we waited nearly an hour and a half to see the provider. she is excellent but the waiting time to see her has always been significant on our visit. I would recommend but that long of a wait is touch with such a child at that age

June 12, 2017

Both the nurse and the provider were excellent in how they treated us as well as level of quality that was apparent how they approach their jobs. The provider in particular seemed very interested in taking care of my daughter's eye and advised in a way that my daughter would definitely understand and pay attention. I think she advised me as well in the best way to attend to my daughter's eye prescription need in the near future.
