I saw Dr. Khodabakhsh as a new patient today. His staff was very professional and courteous. My examination was delayed today because Dr. Khodabakhsh was running late due to his seeing unscheduled emergency patients this morning. I am gladthat he was available for emergencies; I did not mind waiting. I am extremely satisfied with his examination of my eyes and with our discussions concerning my eye wellness and my previous eye procedures. I will be a returning patient and I will recommend him to my spouse and others.

I can't speak more highly about Dr. Khodabakhsh! Virtually no wait time. His assistant was fantastic - she was very thorough and competent, as well as friendly and attentive. Dr. K is one of my all-time fave MDs. He is anexcellent listener, and always empathetic to whatever ailment is afflicting me. He makes a point to offer all solutions, emphasizing the ones which are the best bang for your buck. His schedule is always packed, but he somehow never makes you feel rushed. On top of that, he has an incredible personality - I never leave without a laugh. I highly recommend Dr. Khodabakhsh!!
