24/04/14 5 4 5 5 Our family Doctor recommended Dr. Mah because he and his colleagues go to him and consider him to be the best. We feel very lucky to have found Dr. Mah and would not consider going anywhere else.

10/06/13 5 4 5 5 My son's principle recommended that I bring him to Dr. Mah for potential tracking issues. It turned out that my son was a candidate for the eye training. Dr. Mah and his staff did a very thorough exam and preliminary testing which provided the base line. After going through all the lessons in the eye training I was amazed at how much of a difference there was! My son was able to complete parts of the test he couldn't the first time through and greatly improved his speed while reducing errors on the other parts. I definitely recommend Dr. Mah for any children who are smart but not doing as well in reading as expected, it may be a tracking issue. Not only was his reading improved but also his bike riding and ability to track a ball through space for sports.  Respond

25/02/13 5 2 5 5 I've been seeing Dr Mah for about 20 years now. I've moved a few times and tried to find an optometrist closer to home twice, and that always ended badly! I happily drive a long way to see Dr Mah and will continue to do so as long as he's working! He's often late, but that's because he is thorough. Bring a book!  Respond

12/01/13 5 4 5 5 My family have been seeing Dr. Mah for years. He is very thorough and takes the time to explain everything to you. This year I got the optional retina scan done for an extra 24 dollars and he took the time to explain what everything was and what he looks for. They even sent me the jpegs when I jokingly asked if they would email it to me. He was also very thorough with my 2 children and I'm sure they will be seeing him until he retires.

08/08/12 5 5 5 5 I can't thank Dr Lloyd Mah and his staff enough for all they've done for me in the last week. I had a serious eye infection to the point my eyes were red for weeks. My family doctor dismissed it as allergies, then gave me antibiotics. The optometrist I saw after told me to stop taking the antibiotics and it got worse. I had a wedding to go to where I was in the wedding party and my eyes were beat red - the girlfriend was not impressed. I came back to the office without an appointment and the amazing staff were empathetic with my situation and were able to get me into see Dr Mah. Not only did he resolve the situation, he also opened his clinic, on a holiday, to check up on me to see how i was doing. To me that is going far above and beyond the call of duty and for that reason I am stating my experience with Westwood Eye Doctors and Dr Mah has been one of the best medical experiences I've ever had. Thank you again for truly caring about the needs of your patients. I owe you one.  Respond

29/03/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mah and his staff are very personable and professional. The examinations are thorough and performed with care and attention to all areas. For many years, I suffered from dry, red, itchy eyes. Dr. Mah recommended an eyewash regime, which included a daily wash with a saline solution. Gradually, my eyes began to improve, so now I use the saline solution a few days at a time,when needed. This has been such a relief to me and I am very appreciative of this excellent recommendation. I would certainly recommend Dr. Mah to anyone looking for a competent, caring optometrist.  Respond

19/03/12 2 3 1 5 more a comment on their optical department. I waited several minutes just for someone to acknowledge I was at the desk waiting. Shocked at their contact "scam". Their was a promotion that if you buy 4 boxes you get a mail in rebate of 35$ Here is the thing. I phoned for the prices per box but but.... once I got there it was completely different. Once you buy 4 boxes as a set the price per box is more expensive then if you bought them separately. I pointed this out and the staff member tried to explain with the rebate I am still get the contacts cheaper. True, but with the higher cost of 4 boxes in a set I am basically splitting the rebate with the doctor. She then told me she would talk to doctor Mah .... I waited 5 more minutes for her to ask Dr.Mah if she could give me the other rate. I spent over 30 mins in the office for a simple contact order. Not happy with the switch and bait prices Dr. Mah promotes.  See Responses

He's professional, thorough and willing to give the patient as much time as much time as is needed to answer all questions. I would not hesitate to recommend this doctor. Hopefully he will be around for a long time to come  Respond

25/11/11 5 4 5 5 As an older adult(75)I wanted to improve my balance, eye-hand coordination and timing, in order to avoid a catastrophic fall that would permanently damage my quality of life. Dr. Mah's program began with an assessment of my skills, then provided individual instruction, and a re-assessment of my skills. The training was interesting and kept me motivated, I felt myself improving, and this was confirmed by the post-assessment. The staff was friendly, and flexible when I had to re-schedule appointments. At the end of the program, Dr. Mah discussed with me in detail my areas of improvement and how I might continue on my own to improve further. For me, the course was enjoyable and time well spent.  Respond

19/07/10 5 5 5 5 I've been going to Dr. Mah my entire life and wouldn't choose another if I had to. He's extremely knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable. The staff there are top-notch and super friendly, and really go out of their way to inform you about anything eye-related without pressuring you to buy anything. -Marc  Respond

19/05/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Mah is fantastic, thorough and explains everything. He takes the time needed to make sure he checks the health of your eyes as well as your vision, and does not tell you that you need glasses or have poor vision unless if you do not. Before Dr. Mah, I was told that I needed reading glasses, I of coarse thought the Doctor was right so I bought reading glasses and strained and was making myself crazy using them. I found Dr.Mah and he tested my eyes and it turns out I am near sighted and have never needed reading glasses. I won't go to anyone else. I've recommended many people to him and no one has been unhappy, especially my 92 year old grandmother that no one would treat because they told her she was too old, but Dr.Mah was able to help her double vision and make her smile!~  Respond
