Dr. Nathan Hind’s desire to become an optometrist stems from his childhood. At a young age he was near-sighted. His optometrist gave him the ability to see clearly and perform to his full potential. This experience made him want to help others the same way he was helped. “The world is a beautiful place, and people should be able to appreciate it as clearly as possible,” he said. On his spare time, Dr. Hinds loves spending time with his family and friends. His second love is motorsports, especially motorcycles and vintage muscle cars.

The doctor is good but I am starting to have doubts about trying Humana. It seems there is disconnect between the differebt care providers invokved. For a member like me, who had been used to Kaiser, ut has been challenging. There was no option to choose.

Dr. Hinds is very thorough, and educates me in detail regarding my vision and the steps taken throughout the exam. I wear progressive vision glasses, and mono vision contact lenses, so my prescriptions are a little complicated, but with Dr. Hinds expertise, my prescriptions have been 'exact' every time for the past three years that I have been going to him.

July 11, 2017
He is a wonderful Dr.
July 07, 2017
The service and personnel were both great, especially the fact that I did not need to explain my history as being affiliated with PIH and Dr. Dudeja all my history was readily available for Dr. Hinds. That is one reason I switched my optometrist.

May 26, 2017
I was apprehensive to see Dr. Hinds because a visit two years ago was curt and Dr. Hinds barely faced me to speak - entering data into the computer the whole time.This visit was most enjoyable. Dr. Hinds explained that when I first saw him he was very new to the the office and was trying to make sure to enter everything precisely - unfortunately at the expense of patient"bed side manner".This visit Dr. Hinds was relaxed, smiled, made sure I was put at ease with each instrument change,and still managed to enter data correctly.Dr. Hinds was very professional in his explanations of each procedure, listening and answering my questions. I would recommend him highly.
