Appointments/Cancellations

Appointments can be made by calling our office at 562-431-2748. For new patients, please arrive at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled appointment time to allow ample time for completing pre-visit paperwork. We value your time and we will do our very best to honor your appointment time.

If you cannot keep an appointment, we request that at least 24 hours notice be given to the office. This allows us to make your appointment time available for another patient.

For new patients a full examination may range anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours depending on any necessary testing. It is a good idea to bring a driver with you on the day of your first visit in case your pupils need to be dilated. Dilating your pupils may result in temporary blurry vision and light sensitivity that may last for 4 to 6 hours.

Emergencies

If you have any new eye symptoms or vision changes, we will do our best to accommodate you into our office schedule as soon as possible. If you have an urgent eye problem after office hours, you may call our office number and the answering service will notify our doctor.

For life threatening emergencies, please call 911.
