Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Before I was a patient, I had a sudden very painful eye issue that felt like glass in both eyes. I called the closest vision center! Happily, Dr. Santos made time for me immediately and quickly identified an allergic reaction to my new contacts. She is generous with the community; making glasses for students in need of vision correction. The employees are always friendly and helpful. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Karen Santos and her professional team."
    Ginny R.
  • "Dr. Santos is beyond wonderful . I found them online based off of rave reviews, they are however out of network with vision plans however her along with her staff took time before appointment and during to fully explain how it would work & took care of filing for me . I paid a reasonable exam fee and got a check in the mail just shortly after( with NO work from me)! Everything about my experience was above and beyond , i got the best exam i likely will ever receive and Dr. Santos took time to make me fully aware of every step along the way . HIGHLY RECOMMEND for you and your family."
    Marissa H.
  • "Dr. Santos and her staff truly go above and beyond for their patients. They do not just settle with your vision, they make sure you are seeing the best possible. I suffer from astigmatism and Dr. Santos was thorough with the examination and even replaced my glasses because I was not satisfied. Top notch organization!"
    Ronak P.
