Good doctor...too long a wait time

Dr. Aghai is knowledgeable and personable. He does spend time with you to explain what is going on. However, the wait time is over the top! The first time I waited 45 minutes in the Hawthorne office. I was told he was in surgery that lasted longer than anticipate. Ok, I went with that. My next appointment was in the Gardena office. I arrived in time for my 3:30 appointment and finally got in to see him at 5:30. I was told it was a Monday and he was seeing a lot of patients. If I hadn't already paid my copay I would have left. I don't intend to return as my time is valuable and there are other good doctors out there.

I have been going to Dr. Aghai for years and he really takes the time to let me know what's going on with my vision. Although he is busy, he really cares and spends time with you. A++++
