I had a sty in my eye. I got an appointment real quick. I've been before. I work at PH. I'm an RN. But I went to La Habra, pH Eyecare by my house. Very convenient. They're very nice. While I was getting my eye examined, the girls cleaned and tightened all my glasses. And the doctor was nice enough to give me a sample of the sty medicine so I didn't have to go fill a prescription. And appreciate everybody. Great service. Thank you.

Dr Cheng is one of the rare ones! Not only does he listen to his patients but you can see genuine concern for me when he explains any questions I may have and educates me on any of my conditions. What a pleasure it is to have such a genuine caregiver and I'm so very fortunate to have him as my eye doctor! Thank you for having such a wonderful doctor on your staff!

Dr Chester Cheng is the best eye doctor I've seen and I've been wearing glasses for 55 yrs. I'm a newly diagnosed diabetic and He explains how important it is to keep your blood sugar in control to keep your eyes healthy. And how important it is to see him if I notice any changes in my eye sight or any concerns I may have.

Everything went well. Everybody I had connection with went well, except that one of your workers in the office, was on the personal phone call for 10 minutes. Which could have continued, working, and calling patients, moving the work. People, other people didn't have to wait so long. Receptionist, I should say the ones that that call you and get register you or where you make your payment.

April 20, 2021
Very happy with his work. He is going to be using props about my eye and what I need to do, and he schedule an appointment with the specialist and right away explained that they are specialist and what I have in my eye he can't help me because he's not a specialist in that area, which is very nice that he's that he sent me with a specialist. I'm very happy to be his patient. Very kind man, very patient, very polite and respectful. Thank you.

Your providers are wonderful. Before I signed up for PIH Medicare advantage United healthcare I was lead to believe drugs were free and I got new glasses. Possibly I heard from others that I know have that plan and I only assumed. Not complaining, you're 10 times better than my old plan with Kiser, just want to let you know. Free frame - not glasses. No copay for prescriptions not drugs.
