My visit with Dr. Nejatheim was great. He takes his time with his patients and asks a lot of questions. He is very efficient and has a lovely bedside manner. I mentioned that I was leaving the country that week andneeded extra contacts because I had run out. He graciously gave me all the spare contacts he had for my prescription. I highly recommend Dr. Nejatheim.

Dr. Nejatheim was nice but his office was outdated and not very welcoming. Dr. Nejatheim was not very sanitary he would use the computer touch things in the space and only use hand sanitizer to “cleanse” his hands. In addition usedperoxide to wipe down his medical equipment with one piece of tissue. I will definitely not be returning.

Allon and Max were absolutely great! They were extremely timely, available, and very easy to get along with. Allon was extremely professional and knowledgeable and answered all my questions, even corrected my glasses prescription that Ihad been using for 3 years! I highly recommend them due to their hours and how quick my eye exam took.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He and his team are glasses/contacts salespeople first, and an eye doctor second. He argued with his assistant when I arrived, who mischarged me after messing up my insurance, and then the doctorhimself called me later and asked for the rest of my payment. When I said I had to call back in a few hours because I was at work and I didn’t have my credit card available, he gave me an attitude. He would not stop asking for me to order contacts through him even though I told him I don’t wear them. Very very shameful to consider this a “doctor’s office” - its a sales boutique with a closet in the back for an eye exam. To use the bathroom, you have to walk through the storage closet. Very unprofessional overall.

This is an eyewear store, where they do exams as well. I was seen very quickly, as there was no one else there. The doctor was thorough and straight to the point. The man selling glasses was really trying to getme to buy a pair of glasses, since my insurance didn't cover them at this location. He was friendly, though. I would def reccomend Dr. Allon.

Appointment was great! I was seen immediately and did not have to spend any time filling out paperwork. I was a couple minutes early even and was still seen right away. It's a small office but they seem to have agood selection of glasses in there. Dr Allon was really nice, gave me a full eye exam, and I got a new prescription for contacts and glasses. Ordered contacts through them because pricing was competitive. Definitely recommend! Local office, very convenient and friendly :)

doctor quite thorough but I will not come over again, after 1hr annual check visit doctor wanted to charge me for another exam just to extend my contact lenses prescription; aggressive sale of frames while I just came to have myeyes checked; I have not received any written medical documentation form the visit; you may find better, nicer places to have your eyes checked

Dr. Nejatheim's visit was very accurate and thorough. He explained everything very clearly. For almost one year, I had been wearing a pair of glasses with which for some reason I was never comfortable (I had gotten them elsewhere). It probablydepended on something wrong with the lenses. Dr. Nejatheim listened carefully to what I said. From the moment I put on my new pair of glasses, I forgot that I was wearing them: thanks! The gentleman at the glass counter is also very courteous.

Dr. Nejatheim saw me on a Sunday when I woke up with a very red eye. There was zero wait time, and Max at the front desk was the sweetest man in the whole world. I mean, really, can we befriends? He was extremely helpful as we brought our four month old baby. Dr. Nejatheim walked me through each part of the eye exam and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. He concluded I had an infection (not pink eye) and prescribed me drops. He was also sensitive to the fact that I am breastfeeding and took that into account when prescribing me drops. My infection cleared by Tuesday (two days) and my eye looks great. I will definitely be back to Dr. Nejatheim when I need new contacts or glasses.

I chose Dr. Allon based on the ratings available from the Internet. However I must say I made a very wrong decision. First of all I double checked with my insurance requirements before my visit and they said they accept it,even my insurance company said Dr. Allon is in their network but when I visited they said I can only do the eye checkups not the frames and lenses, but it was covered by my insurance. Second he's very confused and unprofessional. After he's done with my checkup he said the eyeglasses power will remain same (I have -1.75) but when I saw the prescription he it was stated (-2.00) then I asked the doctor again why is that, he replied -1.75 and -2 all the same it doesn't really matter. This is so scary. I am using eyeglasses for more than 11 years but I never saw any doctor to talk ambiguous like this doctor. He's my nightmare. I don't recommend this unprofessional doctor.

Excellent. His office includes an eyeglass shop with a good selection of eyeglasses to buy should you want to. Nejatheim himself is a consumate professional, intelligent, thorough, curious and though young there is something old-world abouthim in that he takes time to answer your quesions and seems genuinely about your wellbeing and the care of your eyes.

The appointment went very well, it just started more than 30min late as the doctor arrived late at his office. But besides that, the whole process went really smoothly, great assistant at the front desk that helped me select glass frameswhile waiting for the doctor. And once the doctor was there, he treated me very well. He did a lot of testing and gave nice recommendations.
