"Dr. Bhatti does a fantastic job of being thorough. He was recommended by my optometrist, and I am very happy with the service. He noticed multiple issues in both eyes and was able to perform the necessary treatment quickly. All members of his staff are very kind and professional to work with. I look forward to interacting with everyone inside the office, from the front desk, to his assistants, and Dr. Bhatti. I would recommend this office to anyone who is looking for a great experience. I am extremely happy to share my thoughts about Retina Macula Consultants :)"

"I was a patient at the Huntington Ambulatory facility on September 26, 2022. My experience up to the recovery unit was fine. When I awoke in recovery, I asked for my doctor; who was no longer on site. I asked that the nurse call my doctor, and she refused. Fortunately, I am with UCLA health, and I was able to message my doctor through the patient portal, but a patient should never be refused a phone call to their doctor following a surgery."

"Dr. Lo was awesome from the start! My aunt is Japanese and 91 years young. English is not her native language and she has trouble understanding it at times especially with medical stuff. Dr. Lo was very kind and took his time to understand her and make sure everything was good with her. The day of her surgery the surgery center was very patient with her also. The only down fall (if you want to even call it that) we had was due to Covid protocol I was not able to stay with her up to when they took her in for surgery, but I understand the situation, but the nurse kept me very informed via phone."

"Very Clean, Very Professional, made me feel at Home , even though it was Surgery."


"I have been coming here for over a year. I have been getting epidural. Dr Levine and the anesthesiologist are the best! His support staff is wonderful. They always treat me kindly and respectfully! Thank you!"

"Good experience from beginning to end. Hector was "fun" during the drive there when I was expecting a bad time. Vanessa took excellent care of me before and after, and Joel took excellent care of me during surgery. Dr. Twansey was very professional for the surgery itself. Very pleased."

"The most unprofessional and disorganized facility we have ever encountered. My father needed hernia repair surgery and his doctor suggested this facility because there aren't any coronavirus patients here, since it's a surgery center for small procedures and plastic surgery. My father was scheduled for surgery here at 1pm and showed up at 11:30am (per their instructions). When he arrived, they didn't even take his temperature. Can you believe it?! Temperatures are taken everywhere you go now - restaurants, barber shops, etc. But not here apparently! My father has chronic kidney disease and due to his new medication, he typically drinks 17 cups of water a day. He was told not to drink or eat anything for 12 hours before surgery. He was waiting in the waiting room and the doctor showed up at 1pm (the time of his scheduled surgery) and he told him he looks dehydrated. Apparently, there is only one surgery room available in that facility and they only take 3 patients per day. The room was being used for a patient from early morning until 1:30pm - her surgery took very long. At 1:30, a patient that was scheduled before my father went in for her surgery. And this was after his appointment time at 1pm. He was getting more and more dehydrated as he was waiting. Everytime he would check with the front desk staff to get an update, they struggled to explain what was going on and left him wondering if he was able to have his surgery that day. At 3pm and with no update still (facility closes at 5pm), my father couldn't take it anymore and drank some water because he felt like he was going to pass out. He ended up leaving and not getting his surgery done. All they said to him was "we're sorry." Can you imagine how frustrating this is and a huge waste of time and energy? He ended up getting his surgery done in a hospital and had a much better experience. Learn from his experience and do NOT come to this center for any surgery. You will regret it if you do."


"This posting is not about the surgical center itself but more so regarding the behavior and communication I received from the front office lead/scheduler. While I was waiting for my partner to recover from surgery I was waiting in the front lobby. There was no reception or front office support (probably due to low staffing /COVID) and so I waited for someone to come to the desk. After 30 minutes a woman came to the front desk and opened the window. I greeted her and said “hello” in a warming tone and she abruptly asked “do you have an appointment”? My response was “no, I am waiting for my husband in recovery”, while I was speaking she closed the window and turned her back and sat at her desk on the computer and got on the phone and started speaking loudly to someone on the phone. This woman did not even allow me to continue speaking or ask questions. I thought it was rude of her to close the window while I was speaking. This is a surgery center with patients and anyone experiencing this should understand that oftentimes surgical procedures is not only taxing on the individuals undergoing a procedure but to family as well. If you are working in the medical industry and are front office support and admin staff please have some compassion and be courteous. While I understand that folks may be stressed at times especially when understaffed it’s important to not forget why you decided to be in the industry. Before posting this I did reflect on if I was overthinking or being over sensitive about the situation, however, I thought it was important to know since folks will be interacting with this individual and of course now she is on the phone again laughing. Just really rude and not very empathetic."

"everyone was so sweet and made me feel super comfortable before and after my procedure. I forgot my vaccination card but Karen at the front desk was patient and let me send her a picture of the card to verify (they also had covid tested me a few days prior). All the nurses were super kind and helpful while getting me ready for surgery and for helping me recover after. The nurses that worked with me were Yvonne, Mimi, Cherie, and the OR tech Karma, they were all amazing and made me feel super safe and comfortable!"


"Beware...The worst. My daughter was diagnosed with cancer and needed Chemotherapy. She was told by her doctor at this clinic. The office took over 2 months to respond to my additional referral requests sighting being short staffed after who they referred me to didn't even handle pediatrics. Then they call me regarding an outstanding balance that wasn't due for another 2 weeks... Unbelievable and irresponsible especially for such a critical diagnosis.."

"The facility is easy to find and Google navigation takes you right into the parking structure. Follow the pathway to the courtyard. Building A and B are right across each other and are labeled with signage. The staff seems friendly and helpful. There's clean restrooms water stations at each floor."

"I currently work here. And I had Smile procedure done 1 week ago. Everything is way soooo good, Sharp vision and I don't experience much glares or halos. But there's only one disadvantage: why have I waited for so many years to make up my mind!!! My eyes are sensitive and susceptible to seasonal change and dry weather. Wearing contacts always makes my eyes super dry. I also suffered from surface defect, which might lead to severe problems if not treated timely, due to contact use. I was hesitant to have the surgery because I was afraid that the surgery would escalate my dry eye condition. However, without wearing contacts or even glasses, the symptoms actually improve. Now I can see 20/15 (which is better than 20/20). If there's an earthquake hitting at night, I don't have to look for my glasses before running. Lol Thank you everybody! Thank this company for giving me a better than 20/20 vision in 2020!"

"No stars if I could, 3 years ago my father went in for simple eye surgery. He ended up with a staph infection, 2 days later his eye had to be removed. My father passed away 04/21 without seeing any compensation on this groups part. Till this day the case is on going, this group unwilling to accept any responsibility. Go anywhere else for your care. # Dr Kevin Suk, acuity eye group Arcadia. Seek care elsewhere"
