I have been going to this office for years, but what prompted me to write a review was that I just took my two kids to see Dr. Sethi. I'm not sure why I've been avoiding taking them to an eye doctor; they see their regular pediatrician annually. But we finally went and it turns out that one of my kids needs glasses, the other one doesn't. What I liked about this experience: they did a COMPLETE eye screening on the boys, including visual acuity, pupil function, extraocular muscle motility, visual fields, intraocular pressure and ophthalmoscopy through a dilated pupil. Both the doctor and assistants were patient with the boys' many questions and thorough in their answers. I appreciate any business that doesn't rush me out and speaks to my kids directly, not always through the parent. In the end - with my child who needs glasses - they were thorough with their sizing, cognizant of my budget, and delivered everything in a timely manner. I highly recommend Dr. Sethi's office and was just reminded - through their email system - that it's my turn for my annual eye exam.
