Reading an eye chart mounted or projected on a wall is a standard part of every visit to the optometrist today, but it wasn't always that way. Centuries ago, practitioners struggled to measure vis ...View Article

Dr. Park is the best. The staff in the office are so helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Every time we go it’s like visiting family. I've been with the office for 11 years and would recommend the office to anyone!
Dr. Park is awesome. She is patient and genuinely cares about helping me. I had eye problems so severe they were preventing me from going to work weeks at a time. She took her time and researched my problem and was able to find a solution. Not to mention helped me finally get relief from so much pain.
I would recommend Dr Park everyone!
Since my experience with this clinic i wanted my husband to have his eyes checked even though it had been less than a year since he had an eye exam. We are so very thankful he went. Dr. Park is so caring. There was a little wait but for us it was well worth it. Dr. Park found a problem with my husband's eye that should have been found during his last exam at another eye doctor's office. Thank goodness it is still not too late to possibly correct this but disturbing that it was not found before since it isn't something hard for a doctor to see and now we know why the previous eye doctors could not get him to say which of the views were clearer!! The doctor was honest enough to tell us she would not give him a prescription for glasses until this problem is corrected and she knew the best doctor to refer us to for correction of the problem and they made the appointment for us but not until we agreed with the date and time. When we checked out they made sure they billed it in a way that made it the best for us - we have never had anyone do that before. I also had a procedure done but not until it was completely explained so I felt completely at ease. i just can't find enough praise to give you about this office.
When it comes to healthcare, I am quite particular and exponentially more stringent in my choices than I am with a restaurant. If you have bad wait staff, no big deal, comparatively, if you have a bad doctor, it is your health at stake.
Dr. Park is extremely thorough, professional as well as very down to earth. She really takes her time. I have been to her office several times for my 12 year old granddaughter's new patient exam, eye glass fitting and ordering her second pair of glasses and on each occasion she and her wonderful staff spent time listening, educating and showed genuine compassion for the issues at hand. I feel that she wants to help my granddaughter see well yet she is also looking out for her long term eye care and health. She is articulate and able to answer my questions - and I ask a ton of questions. Even my phone calls were received with kindness and ease.
Her staff truly collaborated with me in making sure my granddaughter gets the best fit and personal choice of style eye glass frames possible. We both feel comfortable telling Dr. Park and her staff about our concerns. They also don't try to rip you off by up selling features or lens processing that you don't actually need. Yes, the office building is dated, as another comment noted, however, there is much beauty, integrity, and wisdom and phileō love within to get passed the "cover of the book."
Because of the positive experiences at Dr. Dorothy J. Park & Associates, my husband and I will drive nearly an hour making her office the new home for our eye care needs and continue to highly recommend this office to others. BIG thanks to this fantastic group of people!
Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Dr. Park was excellent with a great chair side manner. Everyone there was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back with the kids for their exams.
Thank you so much for your kind review! We look forward to helping you, your family and loved ones in the near future. Sincerely, Dr. Park
Dr. Park is such a sweet person and consequently, makes an excellent doctor. Not only is she caring and compassionate with her patients, she participates actively in her community in "giving back". If you are looking for a great doctor to care for your vision, look no further--she's the one!
My girlfriend received an injury to her eye one evening. We are from out of town and were visiting my mother in Columbia. We didn't know who to call, but a quick online search led us to Dr. Park. She answered the phone after business hours, told us to come in, and got us situated. She stayed 2 hours after her normal close time to cater to my girlfriend's eye. She is a passionate doctor with a great heart and sense of humor. The staff is very welcoming and professional. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.
I cannot thank Dr. Park and her team enough for all that they did for my fiancé. When other offices were too busy to see him, they offered him an appointment immediately. Once we arrived for what we thought would be a regular "debris in eye" visit, they found his eye pressure to be dangerously high and kept him for observation and treatment for 2 hours until they were comfortable with his pressures coming down. If it weren't for them, he would still be walking around with extremely high pressure due to glaucoma and slowly damaging his optic nerves and going blind. They were all very caring, concerned and very professional. There is not one negative thing I can say about our experience and I highly recommend anyone to visit this office for their next checkup. And incidentally, my fiancé is only 38 and has glaucoma, so please look after your eye health, and have regular checkups. Don't wait until there is a problem because glaucoma is undetectable without a thorough eye exam.
I have been seeing Dr. Park and her wonderful staff for a couple of years now and could not be happier with the care I have received. Dr. Park is very caring and took her time with me. She gave me a very detailed eye exam considering my family history of eye problems. Tiffany and Koty were both caring young women who answered any questions that I had. Mary offered a rebate for my contacts as I checked out. Steve is Dr. Park's optician, (and keeps patients and staff laughing all day) who offers a huge variety of frames and options on your lenses to suit any need you could have. Dr. Park carries many brands of contacts (the Dr. I went to before her only carried three brands for my astigmatism) and was able to fit me with a new brand. My lenses were updated (minus the old fashioned bi-focal) and Steve picked out a beautiful frame for me. The office is very cozy, not clinical, which I like very much. Dr. Park has all of the most up to date equipment. I highly recommend.
