After trying several optometrists in San Francisco, I came to the conclusion that unlike the doctors I have met, optometrists in general are not as nice. And then, through a recommendation from a relative, I found Geri Cheng, O.D. of Custom Eyes Optometry. Dr. Cheng is genuine in all that she does, and she is very nice, experienced, and professional but also very relaxed. Every single visit to her office has been fun, even though that usually isn't an adjective to describe optometrists. While Dr. Cheng checks my eyes and such, she asks me questions about how I am doing and we talk as if we were friends. And apparently, as I found out from others who are her patients, she talks to all of them the same way, no matter what their age or ethnicity is. I have a friend who is an optometrist, and I am having a hard time trying to decide which optometrist I should go to; one that's owned by a good friend or one that is owned by such a great person, Dr. Cheng. That's how good of an optometrist and person Dr. Geri Cheng is.
I visited Rainbow Grocery for the first time about a year ago when I first turned vegetarian, and although I did not buy much the first time around, as I was just looking around, I loved the place right away. This summer, after coming back to San Francisco from San Jose (where I have been living for the past year), I started visiting Rainbow Grocery again. It has quickly become my favorite grocery store. Organic items, vegan- and vegetarian-friendly products, cheap to moderately-priced products, great service, and so much more awaits you at Rainbow Grocery. The prices at Rainbow Grocery even beats many other grocery chains, such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, and Rainbow's service and selective is so much better.
