Whether patients speak English or Spanish, there's little chance they'll have trouble communicating at Salud Digna. That's because Dr. Sergio Ortiz, the 20-year optometry veteran who runs the office, works with an entirely bilingual staff. During comprehensive eye exams, Dr. Ortiz checks vision and screens for diseases from cataracts to diabetes. Staffers then help patients select from a supply of frames that includes styles from Ray-Ban, DKNY, and Anne Klein.
Exams aside, the team does good for more than just the eyes. Licensed as a community clinic by the state of California, Salud provides high-quality optometry on a flexible scale, allowing them to help as many people as possible and ensuring that every customer who chooses them is helping to get others affordable eye care.
