I was in LA last week to celebrate New Years and I unfortunately had a retina tear which required immediate attention. I found a competent ophthalmologist in the area, who examined me and then contacted Dr. Nguyen. Dr. Nguyen then met me at his office 2 hrs later, on New Years Eve and examined me. He then contacted a local hospital and made arrangements for surgery the next morning to repair the tear in my retina. I am amazed at the quick, thorough attention I received from Dr, Nguyen and his interest in making sure I received the treatment I needed. He performed the surgery and I was released later that morning….all in less than 24 hours! We were able to commence with most all of our vacation plans for the weekend thanks to Dr. Nguyen! He also followed up with us a couple of days later to make sure all was well. Thank you, Dr. Nguyen!
Two weeks ago, my daughter had a very serious episode where she suddenly lost some vision, saw a dark line etc. we called the office after hours, and Dr. Gasperini promptly returned the call. Even though my daughter was not a patient, Dr. Gasperini went through her symptoms and said if they persisted in the morning, to promptly call and make an appointment. The symptoms persisted and my daughter was able to see Dr. Nguyen almost immediately. It was not a retinal tear but something else for which they treated her. There was some insurance issues and they treated her anyway. I cannot say enough for these doctors. By the way, I am a retired trial lawyer and I know good doctors when I see them.
For the past 18 months, Dr. Michael Roh has been successfully treating me for the ongoing macular edema that resulted from a branch retinal vein occlusion. No matter how busy the office is, or how many other patients may be in the waiting room, Dr. Roh always takes the time and trouble to address all of my concerns. He patiently answers all my questions, and never makes me feel like he’s in a rush. My highest priorities, when seeking out a medical specialist, are competency, good bedside manner, and genuine concern. I believe I have found all these qualities in Dr. Roh.
The office staff is great! The wait times are so much better than any other specialty office that I have visited. The back office is extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions even before the doctor came in. I would recommend this group to anyone seeking above and beyond care!
