she is the best
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
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.
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
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!
  Overall Patient Rating - July 2019
*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%.

Everything was very satisfactory here.

Dr. Park and her assistant are excellent in all that they do.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
Dr. Park was wonderful and I'm confident she gave Emily a very good exam. My only observation that was sightly less than optimal was that she seemed a bit rushed
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
I'm sure *Dr. Park is a technically skilled physician, but we were given no personal explanation of my 3-yr.-old's condition, just handed an internet printout and sent off (almost without her glasses Rx). We have chosen to go elsewhere for follow up.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
Dr. Park is super bright, articulate in detailing options, and honest in her assessment of whether something may or may not be an effective treatment. I trust her judgment. She is generous with time and opportunity for questions. She is also warm in dealing with patient anxieties.

she had no time in her schedule to see me but she stayed late to address my concerns
