"Dr. Najac was very pleasant and professional. I usually wait about an hour to be seen. His staff two women , front desk staff member is not friendly at all, even if you are polite. The other women Karen is excellent!!!! Dr. Najac IS EXCELLENT!!!!!! Highly recommend to all my family and friends.
Years ago i had surgery with dr Najac. It was a cornea transplant at Manhattan Eye and Ear infirmary. In the begining I was treated with eye pressure medications. I was told that I have Glaucoma. Nearly a year later I lost 95% of my vision. Recently I had cornea transplant surgery in that same eye because the cornea was rejected and according to the new doctor, there was not much iris left in the eye. The iris is a color tissue just under the cornea. Recently I sent Dr Najac a letter and asked him if the story is not true or different but he never responded. This is the story of my missing iris.
I would highly recommend Dr. Najac to others because comfort is key. He spoke with me, not at me. The entire staff is professional, and consistently courteous. Overall excellence. If you suffer with any kind of eye aliment, do not hesitate to seek the help of Dr. Najac. I received a brand new life because he helped to eliminate my chronic dry eye problem.
