There was a gentleman who did most of the prep work for dr Vu and his personality and "bedside manner" were incredible. He is a great to your office. I'm sure my spelling is wrong but his name is (name removed) Again he is fantastic! Dr Vu was also very knowledgeable and friendly and explained everything clearly, another asset to your office.

the waiting tlme is too long
September 09, 2022
The dr assistant was extremely helpful kind respectful knowledgeable and makes you feel welcome amazing personality. Unfortunately I can't remember his last name. Start with an (initial removed) I think (name removed) I think he is Philippine This is at La Mirada office

I was originally scheduled to see Dr. Vu on 11/11/22, but because I had been experiencing double vision even with my glasses, I called to see if I could make an appointment with my Optometrist to see if there was another issue happening. I'm sorry that I did not get her name, but the awesome Patient Service Tech on the Appointment Line, suggested that she look into an earlier appointment for Dr. Vu due to possible cancellations, etc. She was able to get me in as an "emergency patient" this same day! In my 30-is years with PIH, I've never had a bad experience with any of the appointment calls. These Ladies are Angels and just go that extra mile every time. Thank you! At Dr. Vu's La Mirada Office, everything is run like clockwork. They were extremely busy with many patients, but no one seems to be kept waiting for a very long time. I thanked Dr. Vu for seeing me as an emergency patient and she explained that "sudden double vision isn't anything to be taken lightly". Reasons given could be strokes, head injuries, etc. So she felt it was imperative that I be seen ASAP. Thankfully, it turned out to be something that I need to try to work out with my Optometrist (even though my prescription is only 8 months old, but with my wonky vision, it's not unusual). I'm GREATLY appreciative of everyone who was involved in my being seen by Dr. Vu and especially Dr. Vu herself for making time on a very busy schedule to ensure the health and safety of one of her many, many patients.
September 07, 2022
Yes, my doctor is very easy to talk to. She's very friendly, very caring. I enjoy visiting with her, and she's always seems to be interested in what I have to say. And offers the help with any of the questions that I have for her. Thank you.

Dr. Vu always explains things in a way the average person can understand. I appreciate her sense of urgency to my situation & her being proactive & then follow-up with the results of medication prescribed. The M.A. that conducted the eye tests was very good about explaining the various tests being conducted. (I don't recall his name)
August 29, 2022
Waited 1hour 45 mins to see Dr.Vu, I asked if this was normal wait she responded, they were very busy and short staffed, normal wait time was 1 hour 30 mins to 2 hours. Poor scheduling with no respect for patients time.
August 29, 2022
Dr. Vu's responses to my questions felt condescending. I do not have an expert's knowledge of the eye and she did not treat me with respect. She seem to forget that I am depending on her for information in her area of expertise. My appointment also felt rushed.
August 29, 2022
Very good!!
August 26, 2022
The provider was good. She explained well. There was not enough clear communication with the staff and myself.
August 24, 2022
Everyone was friendly
August 24, 2022
Taking almost two hours to complete a standard exam is unacceptable. Patients in the lobby complained about two-hour waits as the norm. Seriously? I've walked out on physicians who've kept me waiting less time than that. The same thought occurred to me yesterday morning. If it weren't for the fact that my pupils had already been dilated, I would have walked out that door. This office has a major scheduling problem that needs to be fixed. Fix it.
August 22, 2022
Office staff and technicians were very efficient and professional.
August 19, 2022
The office seems to be under staffed, so it's not the doctors fault, but the wait is very long. Because aren't enough staff there to do everything else.
August 19, 2022
Dr.Vu is the best and very caring..thank god for her..
August 19, 2022
Pleasant visit. Professional and polite employees. Clean environment and face cover for everyone makes one feel more comfortable.
August 10, 2022
Dr. Vu Is A Very Good Doctor I Wouldn't Go Anywhere Eles
August 10, 2022

August 08, 2022
Everyone there was very nice and totally professional.
August 03, 2022
I am so grateful for this eye care center and their doctor and the staff. Everyone was really wonderful, and helpful. And I needed immediate attention and they gave it to me. I was so concerned about my vision, and I'm recovered now. And I'm so grateful to them. Thank you.
July 25, 2022
The staff was friendly and nice, and the doctor was friendly and nice. Also, the only difficulty was that they were, were short staffed or didn't have the right equipment and it took a very long time. Other than that, it was wonderful. Bye.

I am very happy here ! Everyone is very welcoming from the girls at the front desk at check in , from the girl that takes you back before I see Doctor Vu !! Am so happy to have Dr. Vu , was going to another specialist since 2009 and when I chanced my insurance he didn't take it . I was very worried about changing . Was the best thing that happened.

July 18, 2022
Not pleased with wait time to see doctor. Office was overcrowded and overbooked. I had to wait over an hour to see the doctor. However, I am satisfied with the professionalism of Dr. Vu.
July 08, 2022
She was quick to give results on the first visit and knew to ask my other dr to add additional blood work to seek why I was having inflammation of the eye.She gave me answers not like the other eye dr a year ago and a half that kept telling me that nothing was wrong and send me to a another specialist who told me the same thing.Now I have answers and results for why I had inflammation of my eye.You need more doctors like her who think out of the box and make sure her patients ur taken care of
July 05, 2022

Excellent customer service. The doctor is very professional
June 24, 2022
The most Improvement that you can make is shorter, appointment period, sometimes they are 2 to 3 months out and that's too long.

Doctor was running late. My Time is just as important. Visit was too long
June 10, 2022
This doctor is always helpful in giving me lots of think about. It was a condition of my eyes and this time the technician had - he was absolutely wonderful. He explained things I never heard before, which were very helpful, and I waited at because I had two separate appointments for different eye exams and I'll get it went very well, no problem, and I always enjoyed going there and everyone there is always helpful and nice and (INAUDIBLE) be a better experience.
June 08, 2022
Doctor Vu and her staff were very patient with me. I blink a lot and close my eyes when you try to put drops in but they were kind and caring and got the job done. Explained everything in terms I could understand.

Very happy how my mother was treated at this office
May 09, 2022
Dr. Vu is incredibly knowledgeable and kind. I am much happier with her taking charge of my care than the previous doctor. The office staff forgot to submit my check in and I only noticed after people who got there after me were being let in before me for the same doctor. It was a mistake and they apologized, things happen no worries but I was late to my economics final :(.
May 06, 2022
Alway a pleasure visiting this office and Dr. Vu!

I would just like to state that Dr. Vu has listened to me very careful, and very ... explained everything very thoughtful, went through very carefully, and I am very, very pleased with her. This is a second time I go to her, and I was so pleased that I am going to change Drs from (name removed) to Vu, and the girls in the office are the greatest girls. They are so nice, polite, and a lot of patience, and I'm very pleased, even though it takes a long time to get an appointment sometimes, but they do a good job. Bye.
March 03, 2022
The wait time to see the provider was wait an extended long period of time and also that there is inclement to do a field test where they only have 1 piece of equipment for all of the providers in the office where there's 3 providers. The lengthy time wait was due to the only 1 piece of equipment that was available in the office, possibly look at getting some more equipment for there. Thank you.
March 02, 2022
Dr. Vu was awesome, amazing and helpful. I highly recommend her.
February 28, 2022
Excellent PIH! Thank you!
February 28, 2022

February 23, 2022
I guess there's nothing to say but wait a month to be seen by a doctor for a follow up in a month
February 22, 2022
Show me everything was fine, hopefully and that everything will be blind from now on, thanks.
February 22, 2022

All the staff are very welcoming, professional, and very helpful ! Very glad that Doctor Vu is my new eye specialist
December 20, 2021
This was my first appointment with this provider. She seemed to be rushed and I felt I didn't get a chance to ask any questions.
December 17, 2021
Dr. Vu is very caring and listens to my concerns. She makes me feel that she is investing in my health so that I can continue to live life to the fullness. That is very important to me.
December 13, 2021
Recovery from dialation took excessively long in my right eye most of 2 days. Some pain (not common for me present into the evening) and light sensitivity and blurred vision through the 2nd day. Didn't call because pain subsided and cloudy day eased sensitivity.
December 13, 2021
very accommodating, courteous, and timely.
December 10, 2021
Everyone in this office was courteous and attentive. Wait time was null. Great management in scheduling appointments so the doctor was not double or triple booked and I wasn't rushed in and out. Also it was nice to get a take-home report of my visit when I left the office.

Always professional and friendly staff. Dr. Vu gives a complete visit.

November 26, 2021
I liked the service they gave me very professional and above all very human. Many thanks.
November 23, 2021
The wait time to make an appointment on the phone. I was waiting for over 45 minutes just to be answered to make an appointment, a couple months ago. The wait, time is way too long. This problem occurred in every Department, any doctor's office that I called, which is my primary to Orthopedics, to any type of doctor, the wait time or my endocrinologist. The wait time is so long. You guys need to hire more answering service or something because I don't think anybody needs to wait. I've waited almost an hour and a half on the phone before just to just to get somebody live on the phone. That's my only complaint with PIH and I think it's the biggest complaint. Thank you.
November 22, 2021
Office staffs are very friendly , Doctor Vu explained to me in details.
November 22, 2021
All of the staff in that office was very nice.

November 17, 2021
Doctor and staff very professional and caring!
November 15, 2021
The provider was okay with me, but I am elderly and when I ask the provider the doctor to speak slower for me, and directly at me because I had my niece with me. She talked more to the Niece, then she did to me, and it was difficult, especially with our masks on, and I can't blame her for that. But I think if she would have taken a little more time with me, I would have been a little more satisfied. Thank you, but I it that office has always been my my favorite place for my eyes, and it always will be This provider was okay with my niece. She thought she was great. I guess I just

I was especially impressed with her male nurses assistant. He was awesome.
October 27, 2021
On time. Very personal!
October 26, 2021
More communication from the reception office regarding the long wait, which was over an hour that I had to wait and then after that it even took longer for me to see the doctor. So, more communication would have been appreciated.
October 26, 2021
Your phone service needs to be improved. I waited a half hour, one time, to make an appointment I waited 45 minutes another time to speak to a doctor. And almost an hour, (INAUDIBLE) call back, so they can call me back for...for the doctor, I had a question for the doctor. So, the full service need, definitely need some improvement. Thank you.
October 25, 2021
All right. I understand that I do but I don't speak English so much. But I feel okay. Thank you.
October 25, 2021
I had to wait about 45 minutes, and no one in the office updated me. On the other hand, I always bring reading along. And when it was my turn, Dr. Vu was fully available to me, which is what matters. Besides, I sat out the rain.
October 22, 2021
Dr. Vu is so friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, respectful, and she thoroughly explained my particular eye issues. She reassured me!

Todos hablan mi idioma y fácil de entender todo

Everyone was friendly and treated people with respect but they may have been over booked.
October 18, 2021
Despite being on time for my appointment, I waited over an hour to see Dr. Vu. It appears that she was overbooked. I also had a difficult time finding a parking space.
October 15, 2021
Dr Vu is very attuned to my needs. She helps with additional tips for my condition
October 13, 2021
Dr. Vu's a very conscientious doctor, and has helped me improve my eyesight, and I'm very pleased with her doctoring and her whole staff, and very happy to be with PIH. Thank you.
October 13, 2021
Yes, I know she's the best doctor to deal with. I have an eye problem and she was thinking it as cosmetic and not something that insurance will pay for, when insurance pays for it, so I don't understand that. So, I don't know if I would go back to her or not because of that reason. Thank you.
October 11, 2021
In that office they treated me super well, both the employees at the desk, the nurses and especially afterwards the lady that (unreadable), then I finished with the doctor and I was super happy with everything. That is very professional and I was very happy, thank you.
October 11, 2021
It was an excellent experience and I made a mistake there it is all 4's and 10's.
