I really like Dr. Teiche, he has been my doctor for many years. I came up with a problem this time and he seemed sad and was genuinely concerned, which I appreciate.
Dr. Teiche is great
Lots of test were done with very little explanation to what they were or the outcome.
Dr. Teiche is outstanding.
Felt rushed, like he couldn´t be bothered. Now I have the glasses and I´m not sure if the prescription will work or is correct.
Dr. Tie he is personable, informative, and reassuring. I have complete confidence in his work. He is clearly a professional who believes that the patient´s experience is paramount.

Dr. Teiche is an optometrist, and my eye lid infection is something an ophthalmologist needs to see so he referred me to one.

Dr was very pleasant and seemed to care. Took time to explain and answer questions.
Dr. Teiche is and has always been an excellent care provider in my opinion. He is the best optometrist that I have had in my 65 years of going to them. Again, in my opinion.

Dr. Tieche always takes the time to explain all aspects of my care and goes the extra mile to ensure I understand and am comfortable with the outcome of my visit.
I have an eye phobia, so my check-up produces huge anxiety for me. Dr Teiche is always so patient with me, and puts me at ease. Plus he´s very gentle during the exam, and it´s clear he´s an exceptional physician.
Dr. Teiche was exceptional in the care and timeliness of his services.
Would only go to Dr Teiche
It was my first visit with Dr. Teiche. He was very patient, kind and knowledgeable. I will be back to see him next year! Dr. Hsieh was personable and professional as always.
Couldn´t have a better physician in whom I had more confidence.
Dr. Teiche takes time and care answer questions and keep me informed about what the mean, why we are looking certain results and parameters of normal or abnormal.
Dr. Teiche is a superb & caring doctor
It was, as usual, a good experience.
Doctor very friendly and showed too much concern on my situations.
he took the time to talk and care about my concerns
My case was probably very simple. Had a sore in my eye. It was a well understood condition. The tech and the Dr. spent a good amount of time making sure my eye site was OK and not impacted by the situation. I felt confident in the outcome and the suggested go-forward plan.
Dr Teiche was very efficient and very quick with refraction testing. His expertise was very noticeable.
Dr. Teiche is personable and thorough
I will recommend Dr. Teiche to others for eye care.
I really like Dr. Tieche. The day after the appointment I was still thinking about how nice he was. He is thoughtful, caring and concerned and informative. He listened to and answered all of my questions.

Clearly intelligent and lucid. I appreciate his approach immensely.
I am seeing this provider for several years, and I am very satisfied with the care I am getting
For my eye sickness, I trust Dr. Teiche.
Evaluation was done in a friendly and competent manner.
Everything was professional and wonderful!
I had very specific questions about my aging eyes (I am 63, and it´s been more than a couple years since my last exam, and vision has changed significantly.) The Doctor was patient and listened to my very specific questions. There was distraction because of a faulty piece of equipment, and at times I wasn´t sure if my exam was at the center of attention. I did ultimately receive what I considered good information and the proper variety of RX for near, distant, and bifocal vision based on some very specific "eye environment" information I provided. I may have had more questions and brought more specific requests than an average patient, but the Doctor ultimately fielded all my concerns and provided the information I was seeking. It´s only the time delay of the visit and the distraction of the failed equipment that cause me to not be able to give highest marks, and that may be quite unfair, which I realize. Overall, I felt the Doctor and staff were courteous, knowledgeable, experienced, and were willing to listen to my health concerns and provide the information I was seeking.
Seemed slightly rushed this time; not usually my experience in the past.
Asked me if I have been tested for diabetes as my problem & changes in my eyes it alerted him. I was sent for blood wk.
Dr Teiche spent at least double the time with me as my previous optometrist would provide. He was extremely knowledgeable and it was probably the best optometry experience I have ever had.
He is the best!
