    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.

Excellent experience

I recently took my mom to Dr. Nejat for a consultation after another doctor said she needed cataract surgery. The other doctor told her she needed to have it done with a laser and special lens that would cost $5000 per eye. Obviously I wanted what was best for my mom and her health but she was concerned by the expense. The other doctor scared her and said she would go blind without the surgery the way he suggested. Dr. Nejat examined my mother and agreed she needed cataract surgery and gave her two choices. He offered the special lens and also surgery with a standard lens. The standard lens was covered by her insurance but she would have to wear glasses after the surgery. I feel he presented both options clearly and explained everything and gave us the choice to make. We ultimately decided she should have surgery with Dr. Nejat because of this and also because of his bedside manner which made both me and my mom much more comfortable with the surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Nejat.

I am writing this review to tell you how happy I am with the care I received from Dr. Nejat. I went to see him for a lasik consultation. His office is very modern, clean and appears to have the most state of the art equipment. His staff was helpful and pleasant. He gave me a thorough exam and reviewed my options with me. He also told me about PRK, a similar procedure which I did not know about prior to my visit with him. I felt very confident after having him explain the options and decided to proceed with the PRK. I was nervous prior to the procedure and had seen other doctors for consultations but Dr. Nejat made me feel the most comfortable. Because I am a nervous patient, bedside manner is very important to me and I felt Dr. Nejat made me feel very comfortable and took the time to answer all my questions (and I asked a lot of questions). He explained everything thoroughly and in words that made sense to me. I had the PRK 2 weeks ago and the procedure went smoothly and on my last visit I was 20-15 on both eyes. It was a success and a pleasant experience. I would recommend Dr. Nejat. He is honest and kind and calming before procedures.
