    Outstanding visit with Dr. DeAlba. She spent a lot of time explaining my diplopia and options for treatment including surgery. No pressure for me to make a decision at visit. Very impressed with time and care.

    She explained everything well and aloud plenty of time for questions. I love that she took my daughter's self consciousness about her condition and will try to schedule her surgery before she starts high school. We appreciate the individualized empathy.

    Dr de Alba and her nurse were fantastic! I can't speak highly enough of them, we felt so well taken care of during this stressful time with our baby. We left knowing we were in the best of hands and felt so fortunate to be seen by this team - they went above and beyond in every aspect. Thank you!

    It was a terrible experience...we waited 2hrs for the doctor to see our daughter for 15min. ..
    Aug 30, 2022
    Dr de Alba is clearly an expert with incredible knowledge and skill. But it's insane that we will arrive at 3:40 for a 4:00 appointment and we won't see her until 5:30pm. It's incredibly inaccessible that there is only 1 day of week that we can schedule with her, that if we need to change it will literally take several months before we can find a new appointment time. How is there only 1 doctor who can see everyone?
