Dr. was cold, dismissive, seemed uncaring and did not answer/give explanations unless I pointly asked and even then did not answer questions.

*Dr. Park is a caring professional. She has the ability to explain your condition, explain the best treatment for your and the ability to defuse your concerns.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Park to anyone needing ophthalmology services.

I did not feel like this provider tried to help me at all. She cared little about my concerns with the procedure she suggested. In fact, she did not even give me the opportunity to mention what my concerns were. Instead, at the slightest indication of a concern she quickly said something that meant: if you are not happy, go somewhere else.

I felt Dr. Park was very knowledgeable, never made me feel rushed, explained treatment, why and I felt I understood my problem and treatment. She asked repeatedly if I had any questions about anything, and answered those thoroughly. She ordered further testing during that appointment to confirm her assessment and discussed that thoroughly with me. I felt very comfortable with her.

The doctor gave me a generous amount of her time trying to help me with my particular issues but had no good answers. I'm frustrated in general (this is the second eye doc I've seen about my issue) and have emotional distress related to my condition but unsure how to proceed with treatment or care. I think the doctor gave me her best attention and options, there just aren't any, and I could have used 10% more compassion about it. I know docs as a rule aren't always empathetic folks. My nurse was amazing on this topic though!

*Dr. Park is an excellent clinician. She is thorough and spends adequate time with me and ensures all my questions are answered and that I understand 100%.
