Dr.Ghafouri is an excellent physician and surgeon. I required surgery to repair an eye ectropion. His professionalism and knowledge enabled me to feel comfortable about the surgery, and I am extremely pleased with the results.

Luckiest day of my life was finding Ali Ghafouri, MD, FACS. I tripped and fell in my backyard at home and suffered a severe injury to my right eye. At the emergency room a on call specialist was called in and it was determined that I had suffered a inferior orbital fracture of my right eye socket which would require major surgery to repair. The doctor who treated me at the emergency room performed the required surgery and I assumed all was complete. However after numerous follow up appointments it was determined that I would need another major surgery to repair my right lower eyelid which was still grossly misshaped. After listening to the proposed procedure to correct this eyelid I felt that something wasn’t right about this second major surgery. It was at this point I decided I needed a second opinion. I began searching the internet and found eyelidsurgeries.com and Dr. Ghafouri. On my first appointment Dr. Ghafouri listened to my history of this accident and what had been performed and what was proposed in the second major surgery. Dr. Ghafouri explained that this was not the correct procedure to correct my eyelid. His explanation was concise, thorough and easy to understand. I immediately changed doctors because Dr. Ghafouri has performed this procedure thousands of times over the years. Dr. Ghafouri performed my second surgery and all went well. As the months went by with numerous follow up appointments I listened carefully to his instructions and followed them to the letter. Today was my last visit to Dr. Ghafouri because my recovery is complete. There is absolutely no evidence I ever had an accident or any surgeries at all. I look exactly as I did before the accident. I have no recurring symptoms what so ever. The luckiest day of my life was finding Dr. Ghafouri.

Not Real Happy

Not really sure if Dr. Ghafouri was really my surgeon! Taken to a back room, someone drew on my face, put me to sleep, woke up in recovery. I never saw the doctor, before, during or after. I was told I had self dissolving stitches,but one in the corner definitely was not and I had to go back to have it removed. It had been there too long and cause more of a scar. They actually wanted to charge me for it and sent me a bill but in fairness to them, she did reverse it after I complained. I had an eyelid lift due to interference with vision. Everyone saying great things, he seemed to always be in a big hurry to me. Only one year later, hard to see I had anything done...except quite wide scars on my eyelids and nearly constant twitches and pulling feeling in my eyelids.
