Verified Patient Reviews
His staff is very nice, friendly and accommodating. I didn't have to wait too long to get in to see him, but was left in the room twice for a long time while he dealt with other patient(s). When he finally did come in (one time I actually had to open the door and gesture to his receptionist about the long wait), he mumbled an apology of sorts but didn't seem to feel the need to address the delay. I realize that one of the times I was in there for a while he had put dilating drops in my eyes and had to wait for 15 min. or so, but he popped his head in and from the door decided it needed more time so he left and didn't come back for quite a while. Medically speaking, though, I think he knows his stuff.
Que es un gran ser humano. De los q ya no existen.
MR. Shabatian is very professional. I will recommend him.
He was kind, personable and professional. His medical advised treatment was not agressive but, offered a remedy wait-and-see approach to see how issue develops. I appreciate this method.

I've used ZocDoc many times and I must say this was my best experience! Babak was able to accommodate me when it worked with my work schedule at 5pm and waited up for my appointment. He took me right away, was very quick, thorough and very nice! I felt comfortable in his office and I'd definitely go back to him again for my next eye opt! Highly recommended!! Cassie
