    My 16-year old daughter and I have been patients of Dr. van Woerkom for 3-4 years, and we are both really pleased. He is great with young people because he is calm and doesn't talk down to them. I really like how thorough his eye-health exams are. I also need progressive lenses for long distance, computer distance and up-close. He asks me a lot of questions about how I will use the glasses, and is careful about ensuring that the lenses he has prescribed will my needs. I never feel rushed there; he makes time to answer all of my questions.The office staff is also friendly and responsive, and I can usually get an appointment with Dr. van Woerkom within 2-3 days. I bought my previous pair of glasses there, and the people who helped me with frame selection did a great job. I was concerned about the prices, suspecting that they may cost more there, but I priced the lenses at Lens Crafters and they were exactly the same.All in all, I am really pleased with the office and doctor and plan to continue receiving care there.

    Dr. Snowdan is very personable, knowledgeable, and comprehensive in her exams. She always makes sure you understand exactly what she is doing and that you have plenty of opportunities to ask questions. I've seen her for years and she always provides a great experience. The office is clean and organized. The front desk thoughtfully has sanitizer available as well.

    Dr. Gee did a great job and her staff was courteous and helpful. They helped me find a deal on contacts and did not limit me to a year's worth (as I had a different eye doctor do). I will happily return here!

    This was my first visit and I was extremely pleased with my annual evaluation and explanation of vision options. I highly recommend Dr. VanWoerkom!

    Great doctors, been coming here for years. I trust them with my difficult prescription, and they helped me with a terribly painful infection that went late one night.

    Very happy with the very excellent Dr. Van Woerkum. I'm not so sure about the optician side, it seems hard to get information and the price of the glasses high. But then again, the quality of the lenses they prepare is the very best, and that is a life-changing difference. But for super quality care, I can't recommend Dr. Van Woerkum highly enough. BTW, I have Kaiser and their service was terrible the one time i tried, and came right back to POC.

    I had my first appointment yesterday, and so far, I'm impressed. Getting an appointment was easy, the insurance thing was drama-free, there was no wait once I arrived, the reception staff was friendly, the assistant who did the preliminaries was very professional, and the environment was clean and attractive. And I thought Dr. Snowden was just first-rate: friendly, clear, smart, gentle, and ready to present options. Afterward, I was directed to the area with the frames, etc., where everything was handled promptly. Because I had to rush out to re-park my car (street parking is free for an hour, but the appointment verged on taking slightly longer than that), I missed an opportunity to have Dr. Snowden review with me the results of some of the tests. I waited a bit in the outer office to see if I could catch up with her, but she had other appointments, and I had to leave. I told the office staff that unless there was something in the tests that I really needed to know, it wouldn't be necessary for the doctor to call me. Well, there wasn't anything I needed to know, but she called me anyway just to tell me so. I appreciated that. I go back in two weeks to get my new glasses.I heartily recommend Pasadena Optometry Center. And by the way, you don't need to play chicken with street parking, as I did. They have their own lot, though I think you might have to pay.This place is WORLD'S better than Linden.

    I'm super picky about my healthcare. Dr. Van Woerkom is super knowledgeable, patient and kind with his patients and I'm so grateful to have found him! I ask a lot of questions and he takes the time to thoroughly explain  and educate. His staff is super sweet as well. I came here for about 10 years before I moved to the westside, and now that I'm back living on this side of town there's no question who I will be seeing for my eye care. I had a visit a few days ago and I felt like I was returning home.
