On a professional and on a personal level Dr. Park is absolutely among the very finest doctors we have encountered. Her professional and interpersonal skills are superb, and in the two years we have work with her on my eye issues, we have learned to trust her absolutely.
March 2017
I saw Dr. Park as a specialty referral from my regular eye doctor. At no point during the interaction with Dr. Park did I feel that she viewed me as a full human being; rather it felt like I was just a pair of eye balls. She even used my lap as a shelf for some of her equipment during the exam! I think using a table/tray would have been more respectful. During the majority of the visit, she had her back to me, typing away on the computer, with very little verbal interaction. I am seriously reconsidering future eye care with VM after this experience.

I respect Dr. Park´s vast knowledge of my eye problems, which sad to say, seem to be increasing with age. She isn´t quick to suggest surgery for my main issue but is giving me time to see if I can heal the problem on my own. In the meantime, she is monitoring my progress and keeping me informed. I think that is great!
January 2017
Dr. Park was exceptionally thorough, very informative, and very kind and knowledgeable. I had gone to other eye doctors for discomfort and never got the attention to detail and solutions that she gave me. Excellent!

I could tell she was busy. I´ve had more time at previous visits, so I don´t mind.
July 2016
She saved my life last year, and I will be grateful to her every day for the rest of my life for her outstanding care. I don´t have words to describe how much she has meant to me and to my husband. Her examination last week was thorough, she was knowledgeable, informative, and genuinely caring throughout the visit, and I know with profound certainty that she is dedicated to providing me with the very best care. She is my hero.

I have been evaluated for this problem before with little confidence in the MD I saw. Dr. Park was excellent and very thorough. Thank you.

Very informative took time to explain things to me. She did a better job of informing me about my options for care in less than an house than my previous specialist in 5 years.
