Doctors & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Pico Rivera Optometric Center a proud provider of vision care products and services in Pico Rivera.
Liza F. Dimaranan, OD
Dr. Dimaranan didn’t start out with a career in optometry but as an aeronautical engineer. Why the switch? “I just didn’t want to just sit in a cubicle staring at a computer monitor my entire career” says Dr. Liza Dimaranan. “I realized I enjoyed working with my co-workers and having more personal interaction with individuals more than anything else.” So she went back to school to obtain her doctorate in optometry at the Southern California College of Optometry. After obtaining her degree, Dr. Dimaranan worked in a private practice and for an ophthalmologist, gaining valuable experience, before obtaining her own practice in Pico Rivera.
Asking her why she wanted her own practice, Dr. Dimaranan said, “With my own practice I can stress interpersonal relationships and care for my patients. I can make an impact in my patient’s lives by helping them see the world better.” And this is what she says motivates her, especially as she sees her patients return through the years.
Dr. Dimaranan was recently honored with the Young Optometrist of the Year Award from the California Optometric Association. She was President of the Rio Hondo Optometric Society and is currently a board member for the Pico Rivera Chamber of Commerce.
When Dr. Dimaranan isn’t treating patients at the Pico Rivera Optometric Center she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family.
