Dr. Karine Gabrielian has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Horrible experience. I do not recommend their office to anyone. I asked to be billed, they refused to see me unless i had insurance card which i had insurance, but updated card was not with me. Only day i could see them, and they refused to see me. I am a doctor myself, this is not how medicine should be practiced. I have no clue where they got their medical education and how they run their mickey mouse clinic.

Poo Pooed my Eye Problems

First off, everyone in the office speaks Armenian. To each other, to the patients, when they talk about you, etc. The only time I heard English was when I was directly addressed. This leaves a nonarmenian speaker feeling very uneasy. Secondly, the Dr. did not take my concerns seriously, told me to take eye drops and that her office would contact me for further testing. They never did. And I still cannot see while driving at night and have trouble keeping my eyes open. Very Bad DR in my opinion.
