I have been wearing glasses 20+ years and visited many different eye centers. This has been THE WORST experience ever! After spending 2.5 hours on a regular eye exam, I met THE WORST checkout person EVER. She was super slow and talked in such low voice but expected me to hear her mumbling. After waiting for a while at her window to pay the $10 copay, I told her I was in a hurry to pick up my daughter and if I could just pay online. She handed me a piece of paper which I thought was a bill. With my pupils dilated, I tried hard to see what's on the piece of paper and it said patient balance $0?!!! So I went back to her window to clarify if the payment went through. She was already helping the next patient and asked me to wait at the end of the LINE! I was so upset at her I asked the assistant manager her name and said I wanted to file a formal complaint. He did not give me her name. No wonder she had such a bad attitude toward patients. I wish her get treated like this very often in her life to remind her how much this upsets people.I always come to university eye centers mainly because I feel like supporting teaching centers. When I was at the bay area, I always went to the UCBerkeley eye center. The student interns and others here are nice and patient, but the checkout desk person is so AWFUL that I won't come back again.

Any student from this school should feel ashamed to be associated with it. Kittens cannot consent to “research” in which their skulls are opened! Transfer out before you graduate with this horrific school stuck on your resume for life. I certainly vow to never support anyone from here.
