I highly recommend this place. I was in a hurry to schedule an appointment on a day off. Not only did they schedule me the next morning, the appointment ran on time and I did not have a long wait (even for a new patient). The staff was friendly and professional. The Doctor was approachable and made sure to answer all my questions. The office was also very clean and organized. I will be scheduling my family here going forward!

The entire experience at Golden Optometric was outstanding. Dr. Lin educated me on things previous eye doctors had not. I appreciate her warm friendly and manner. Thank you Dr. Lin and all the staff who worked with me At Golden Optometric Whittier. YML

My first time here and I’m absolutely pleased with the service received! I just loved Dr. Wong’s time and patience with me. He answered all my questions and has fabulous bedside manners. I also liked Cynthia, the optician and Maritza the receptionist. It’s a busy office but I had an appointment and I was called right on time.

Nancy stopped by and said HI as I was waiting for Randall, she has always been a nice person. I requested Randall because he seems to understand and he's a nice guy too. I'm happy when I leave. I really don't care for the "have a good one" at the end of my phone call! 34 year customer and I miss DBG...

Hadn’t been to the optometrist over 10 years. They made me feel comfortable and the entire process was smooth. Dr. Masuyama took time to explain every test. My new pair of glasses arrived in just over a week. Definitely recommend!

I would argue that as many professional practitioners merge into mega-conglomerates, they compromise their most essential value, the doctor-patient relationship. You can get your teeth cleaned, eyes checked, and tires changed on a walk-in basis at big box organizations. Let me tell you that if I had done the same with my eye examination, recently it could have cost me my eyesight. The staff and doctors at Golden Optometric carefully listened to concerns about my worsening ability to read, recommended a test, and directly diagnosed a serious condition. I credit the doctor’s depth of caring and personal doctor-patient relationship. They helped me to initiate a resolution addressing my destructive eye disease, within hours. Thank you, Golden Optometric!

I’ve almost forgotten I have Dry Eye Syndrome. My eyes feel great now because Golden Optometric got to the root of the problem, taught me how to care for my eyes, and most importantly, Dr. Andrew Wong carefully adjusted and fine tuned my treatment as needed. So grateful to have been referred to the dry eye experts!

Janie B, Covina

Always have a positive experience visiting Golden Optometric. My first visit was as a youngster with Dr. Golden Senior in Whittier. When I married I brought my husband and he loved the service (more than his optometrist) and have since brought all three of my children, now ages 26 thru 19 and still coming to your office now in West Covina. Your offices have always been a place of trust and excellent service. Love the staff!!

…I was having so much trouble with my eyes. Not only was I having problems with my vision but my eyes were also itchy, irritated and red. Dr. Golden quickly diagnosed me with dry eyes. He treated for dry eyes and my eyes feel great! Thank you Dr. Golden!

Alma M., La Puente

I have never seen Dr. Golden without a smile, such a rare quality. His staff is always very sweet and helpful and I would recommend his practice highly.

April Q., Fullerton

I love my Optometrist office!! I am privileged to be a patient of Golden Optometric Group for over 40 years. First as a child and then as an adult taking my own children to receive the quality of care I can only get there. They far exceed my expectations as great eye doctors and a great office staff. Going in is like going “home”. Each individual, from the doctors, to the office staff, to the eye technicians, treat you with the very best care. They explain everything, offer advice, getting me the best glasses and contacts for my eyes and taking care of all my eye needs plus working toward the future of having good eye sight as my eye needs change. Their help is so personal, like you are the most important patient they have, and they give this quality of care to each one that comes walking in the door. I “trust” my eye doctor’s office with the most valuable gift of my eye sight. I cannot thank them enough for what they have done for my family and me. When friends and family ask me, “do you have a good eye doctor I could go see”? Well, that is an easy one for me – Golden Optometric Group. They are wonderful!!

With Gratitude,

JoAnn R. & Family, Whittier

Your pro-active approach on supplying great customer service and a wide variety of product selection has always been admirable, leaving very little room for suggestions. GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!!!

Elizabeth D., Ontario

Dr. Wong is very friendly and took his time to explain the exam. Nancy is ALWAYS friendly to my wife and me every time we come in. I appreciate the professionalism demonstrated in this office and these two employees should be recognized for superior customer service. Thanks!!

John P., Walnut

Our family truly loves going to see Dr. Ivy Lin. She explains everything thoroughly. Dr. Lin is awesome with our children. My son has Autism and Dr. Lin was so patient with him. We will definitely keep going to Golden Optometric. Thank you!

Patricia V., Rancho Cucamonga

I’ve been seeing Dr. Sheldon and then Dr. David Golden since the Cal Store days in Pico Rivera, and the service has only gotten better. Keep up the good work!!!!

Manuel S., Los Angeles

I have been going to Dr. Golden for many years now, and would not even consider going anywhere else. Dr. Golden is a very caring and attentive doctor; you always feel your getting the best care possible. Also the entire office is very efficient and helpful.

Open an office in Long Beach! Every time it is time to drive there I think I need to find an eye doctor that is closer- but then when I leave (the office) I think I would drive even farther to get that kind of care.

Cindy E., Long Beach

The overall service was outstanding. I couldn’t have asked for better service…BTW – please tell Summer Jackson that she’s awesome as well. Thanks!!

Darcy C. Whittier

I have been a patient of Dr. Golden’s for more than 20 years, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Though I’ve moved a distance from Dr. Golden’s office, my trust in the care I receive has me driving to Whittier from West L.A. for my eye exams and contact lens care for years already. Everyone on Dr. Golden’s staff has been great too. They always take great care in making sure that all of my questions are answered and that things go smoothly. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Golden and the staff of Golden Optometric Group.

Janet K., Santa Monica

It’s helpful to have a provider who is thorough both in the office visit and the follow up contact.

The hours are great, and I didn’t have to wait long, what I also like about your office is that you are up-to-date with state-of the-art equipment. I plan to bring the rest of my family there. Dr. Ardaya was also very personable and was thorough in explaining my test results.

Maria H., Whittier

This place is awesome! … Always a huge selection of frames to choose from. (I have Gucci and Vera Wang). These frames can be pricey but often times they will work with you.

Staff is very friendly and I’ve never had a problem with any of the optometrists. They are not one to rush you thru the appt and make it a point to ensure you are satisfied with your purchase.

I’ve already recomended this place to friends and family.

Melissa F., Fullerton

After 5 years of not using glasses I finally decided to get some glasses.

Having had previous issues in trying to get glasses at several places around the area I found this awesome place on the internet.

I was of course hesitant about going to an un-tried place. Thank fully it turned out nicely.

Everyone here was very friendly. Everyone was very professional. From the time you walk in till you leave you feel very comfortable. At least I did.

I have already recommended this place to my friends and family.

Adrian M., Azusa

Golden Optometric has provided excellent care for me and my family for the past four years. The staff is friendly and attentive, and we receive personalized service, which you don’t get from the national-chain stores. At Lens Crafters, I was just a number, and the opticians were more concerned about up-selling than providing me with what I needed: a quality frame at a fair price. Dr. Ardaya is great; he was able to find contacts that fit me (no more dry eyes!) and my budget.

Chris M., Los Angeles

Was very pleased with the service I received. Had surgery and the support and follow up were amazing. This will now be my official Optometry doctors! Thank you all!

The staff and Dr. David Golden are professional, friendly, courteous, and very helpful. Need glasses? Go see these people.

Arie K., Whittier

Your staff are exceptional with customer service from the receptionist calls, to intake of patients, to th MD exam, and to the final glasses/frame selection! That is why I keep coming back! Just as Dr. Golden stated in his article “If you take care of your customers, they will take care of you!” I have been a patient with your office for over 20 years and it certainly is because of “how well you treat your patients”! Dr. Golden and his staff clearly lead by example! Thanks for the wonderful patient care! Your staff are friendly, patient and professional. You all are AWESOME at customer service!

The wait time was great, I loved my visit, as soon as I walked in I was welcomed, the staff was friendly the Dr’s were great.

Dr. Wong has been more than patient and takes his time to help me with all my questions and concerns. I am so pleased with his service and I am so happy I came to Golden Optometric!!!!! What a beautiful and professional nice office.

I’ve been a long time patient and will continue due to your excellent eye care and customer service. Thank you once again.
