Who We Are
We are a privately owned, progressive veterinary ophthalmology practice offering comprehensive evaluations, advanced diagnostics (ERG, Gonioscopy, Ocular Ultrasound, etc.) and both medical and surgical therapies (Ciliary Body Ablation, Cryoepilation, Phacoemulsfications, etc.) for our patients. Established in 2013, Integrative Ophthalmology for Pets started out by renting space from various general practice animal clinics in order to have room for exams. As our clientele grew, so did our company. We have moved from renting exam rooms to having our own location near the heart of the Mid-Wilshire district.
Our services include a wide range of integrative therapies, mixing Eastern and Western medical recommendations for our patients. We also promote general ocular wellness and food therapy based on Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).
Our Mission Statement
To create a balanced and preventative ocular health care plan based on a thorough ophthalmic examination and recognition of each patient as a whole and unique individual.
We intend to reinforce our commitment daily by:
- Honoring the relationship between our clients and their pets
- Providing the highest quality ophthalmic care and actively engaging clients in their pet’s health care treatment plan
- Promoting education about veterinary ophthalmology and preventative care
- Integrating conventional (‘Western’) and complementary (‘Eastern’) therapies when indicated and appropriate
- Cultivating a positive atmosphere and always maintaining our integrity
Dr. Nancy Park is an angel on earth! I woke up one morning to find my Boston Terrier with very red eyes. He is prone to allergies and swims in the pool a lot, so I figured I'd keep an eye on him but wasn't too worried. Two hours later one of his eyes was a cloudy white color. I immediately rushed him to my vet. After doing a pressure test and determining he had an anterior lens luxation, my vet recommended I take him to an ophthalmologist ASAP. She gave me the names of three specialists and steroid/ antibiotic eye drops for the meantime. After calling the "highly recommended" specialists and not liking the 1- 2 week wait time or the fact that one required a credit card number to hold the appointment, I decided to take to Yelp and find another Doctor who could help my Reggie immediately. I figured .... I'm in Los Angeles. I know I can find better care. I found Dr. Park online. When I called, she spoke to me about my Boston Terrier... (apparently they're prone to eye emergencies) and she made time to see me later that day. I feel so lucky to have found her. She was able to do a procedure called couching which saved the vision in his eye. We also left with a ton of eye drops and diet recommendations. In addition to Western medicine, Dr. Park also uses Eastern medicine approaches to help the body with various ailments. She was a wealth of knowledge and took the time to teach me what was wrong, what is normal, how things work, and what to look for in the future. I could not have asked for a better doctor. Dr. Park has been Reggie's eye specialist for a month. I have seen her twice and have stayed in contact with her (via phone) when issues arose. Just this week, his medication needed adjusting after we tried lowering the dosage. Unfortunately he's back up to his old dose. Which is fine with me! I'm just happy he's happy, healthy, and can see! Oh did I mention Reggie has glaucoma? It's a life long diagnosis, and I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have found Dr. Park...as she will be his specialist for the rest of his life. She makes me look like the best doggie parent in the world.. She's that amazing and provides the best of care. I wish she could be my doctor! I could go on and on about how lucky I am to have found her, but Reggie is the lucky one. In short: Dr. Park is kind, thorough, affordable, up front (she gave me initial prices over the phone...as I had no idea what to expect since I had never taken a pet to an eye doctor). She's available by phone and email, and makes certain that I understand the treatment/ management plan. I highly recommend her.Miss D.9/20/2015
Our Pitbull mix Dollar, for about three years, had an issue with his right eye that made him tear up and squint. We took him to Dr. Park two years ago and he was diagnosed with entropion but we were very hesitant to commit to surgery. Instead of steamrolling our concerns about surgery, Dr. Park and her wonderful vet techs tried everything to allay his eye issue non-surgically and recommended diet tips as well (Dollar also has a lot of skin allergies). Finally we decided the only way to truly fix his condition was with surgery and now he's doing much better! They were very transparent and upfront with what the procedure would involve and the cost. All our questions and concerns were answered promptly and they were wonderful handling our dog, who is not the easiest dog to deal with (he's super energetic and strong). I'm really happy to see both of Dollar's eyes again and I'm very pleased that his recovery went pretty smoothly. I also appreciate how after every visit you get emailed a very thorough recap of what was discussed. These are people who truly care and want the best for your pet. Thank you so much Dr. Park!Sara S.2/15/2019
I am so thankful to have found Dr. Park here in Yelp to treat my fur baby who had a bad ulceration on his right eye. I was so scared for him but Dr. Park was very knowledgable and gentle, it gave me comfort and piece of mind that my fur baby will be okay because she will help him get better and he definitely did after multiple eyedrops and oral meds prescribed by her! Dr. Park is definitely not after the money but the welfare of our pets!! I wouldnt be surprised if she gets her own space for her clinic because she deserves it! Thanks to Dr. Park my baby's eye healed up really well! Will definitely recommend her to friends and family!!!Mrsm M.10/26/2017
We have been seeing Dr. Parks for over two years now. Our Gracie has glaucoma, S.A.R.D.S and numerous other eye issues. She is now blind, but doing well thanks the Dr. parks. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. She is so vary kind and compassionate. You will receive a letter on your visit, so when you get home you won't have to remember everything, it will be almost word for word. Vary highly recommendDavid S.1/05/2019
If I could leave a negative star I would!! I booked my dogs appointment with them after my regular vet had recommended this office. They could not see my dog for a month even though he was about to loose his eye sight. I took off a whole days of work to make this appointment!! I even paid a deposit to keep my appointment!! They emailed me the night before saying that the appointment was cancelled because they didn't get my application for on time, which I did fill out on time and had sent it to them! I spoke to the receptionist (Cynthia) that had not a single carrying bone in her body about my dogs situation!! I asked to speak with the doctor regarding this and they refused to connect with her or even give me her email address so that I may communicate with her!! They are extremely unprofessional!! I would never refer anyone to this office!! Oh, not to mention that I am a doctor as well!!ZERO Compassion!!!Westwood C.2/20/2020

I was referred by Dr. Shipps Animal Hospital to bring my Dog Hercules he suddenly went blind from one day to another! I was so hurt and heartbroken from being told he was blind and here The Amazing! Dr. Park gave him a 2nd chance she put him on everything that was possible eye meds and oral! She basically said he was gonna be blind and I was okay with that I was prepared mentally. I prayed and prayed everyday and hoped he could see shadows one day we took him back to a follow up appt and he had 90% of his vision back! It was a miracle!! Dr. Park knows what she's doing I'm so grateful she came into our lives! Hercules isint just a pet, he's my first child, my baby, a family member whom we all love. He helped my son take his first steps. Thank You Dr. Park for everything you've done for Hercules we appreciate you and the staff who's so kind and always answer every question I have when I call. (Btw Incase you guys were wondering what was wrong BOTH of his retinas were detached!! HOW? That's the million dollar question but god is good, And Dr. Park knows what she's doing)Sarai G.5/08/2020
Dr. Park is amazing! After going to two different specialists who were very pricey and were basically experimenting on my cat, I found Intergrative Ophthalmology, which is decently priced and incomparable in service to the other two Specialists.From the very first appointment, Dr. Park was very thorough in her examination and explanation to us. She was very supportive and made us feel very comfortable with her level of knowledge and services. We came in very concerned about my cat's Uveitis as it had spread to both of his eyes. Dr. Park followed up consistently with us and was always very responsive to our emails and texts. She answered all of our questions, and has gone above and beyond our expectations.Abigail G.6/23/2016
