This office is very scammy. It's preying on an impoverished area with people that do not have insurance. I was fine, because I checked with my insurance beforehand. But many of the individuals attending this office did not speak English anddid not have insurance. They were signing them up with Care credit, which has incredibly high interest rates, and they could not understand the logistics because of the language barriers. Stay away!!

Dr. Khodadadian office is very poorly organized. For example the earliest one can receive an appointment is 10am but Dr. Khodadadian does not arrive to his office until 12 or 12:30 pm. Which mean that there is AT LEST A 2HOURS ( I WAITED FOR THREE HOURS) wait to see the physician FOR 15 MINTUES. Now you may ask what am I doing for two hours. Well the appointment goes like so, you enter wait 30 min to see one of his medical assistant and they will perform some exams such as, dry eyes, interoccular pressure, and maybe a visual field exam. However these exams do not occupy the two hour waiting time so you are still sitting in the office for a long period of time to see the physician. This to me is unacceptable. It is rude for a physician to have his patients wait this long, knowing that they might working that day, might have children, other arrangements, or appointments to attend to. The only reason why I believe that Dr. Khodadadian is still in business is that most of his patents are elderly and people with eye disease who may believe there is better option for them. Now, the issue about his bedside manner. Dr. Khodadadian was not focus on me as a patient, he was always on the phone, rush the session and told me to return back, which meant that I would have to wait for another two hours to see him again. Ideally I would love for Dr. Khodadadian and his staff to read this so they can improve on there Doctor patient care skills. OR to at least have Dr. Khodadadian in the office when appointment are being made. Because I am sure once the older patents are no longer with us he will run out of business because it is unacceptable to have patience waiting for AT LEAST TWO HOURS to a doctor for 15 minutes.

My overall experience with Dr. Khodadadian was good, he was very knowledgeable and so was the staff. Dr. Khodadadian took his time and was professional. A big plus was that the office was open on Sunday! However, the wait time wasa bit long. I waited about one hour before being seen by the doctor.

It's hard to judge my experience with this doctors visit on the day I went. He had a difficult patient that required special attention, and he was attentive to his needs, and was courteous to me for being patient with him.I shall write a follow up review after my second visit. Otherwise, it was the usual affair when you go to see a doctor in an office with six other patients there waiting to be seen.

He was knowledgeable but he came 2 hours late and didn't even apologize for me waiting. No one told me he was running 2 hrs late and had me sitting there until very last minute which was inconsiderate. I guess sincethey started off I wouldn't be able to leave. He said my eye was good but I still feel certain pain on my eye occasionally.

First visit was great. Next two visits the wait took up my entire morning and early afternoon they open at 10am. Got seen at 1pm. I had to reschedule and still waited more than an hour. Staff needs to be moreprofessional some shopping online in the front desk or on their phones during check up. It's just really annoying and pointless to book appointments to go through all that. Looking for a new place.

this office was not run well when i visited for a routine eye exam. it was really understaffed. all his patients were waiting for a very, very long time. the worst part was he made me come back because he couldn'tfinish all of my tests in one visit, which i've never experienced before with any other eye doctors. i was asked to pay another office visit fee the second time, which i refused to do before discussing with the doctor. i never even got to that point because the wait was so incredibly long, i literally walked out without seeing the doctor!

Aweful! Aweful! I waited about two hours for the doctor to arrive. Then when he finally came in he did the diagnosis just as the optometrist in a eyeglass store would do it for free. He then sent a lengthy billto my insurance company stating he performed some surgical thing. Of course the insurance company rejected it. His office then sent me a bill as well.. Just Aweful service. AVOID at all cost.

He played classical music while treating patients, very calm, nice, and knowledgable. Highly recommend him to anyone!!!

While I found Dr. Khodadadian to be knowledgeable and informative. I also thought the scheduling of patients is much to be desired. I understand with being a first-time patient, the doctor may require additional tests, however, the appointments should be booked accordingly.

Updated review. I now see what the other reviewers were talking about in their negative reviews, and I believe it depends on which staff is present. Went in today for my 10-day follow up check up appointment and to pick upmy eyeglass prescription. Not only was I asked to come in at 10 for my 11:30 appointment and waited an hour for one of the receptionists to even acknowledge my check-in, the two younger girls (sisters) that now sat at reception this time (the two young women that were here at my last visit were nicer and more professional) seemed to not care or want to really help the other patients in the waiting room that were all told to come early (some as early as 9:00 and had already been waiting an hour and a half by the time I showed up) and already complaining, the doctor didn't show up until 11:20. One of the girls' replies to an elderly patient who had complained was that she should know it's at least an hour wait at any doctor's office, and there was no apology or explanation after that. Another patient got upset and asked to cancel because he couldn't wait any longer and had to pick up his son; upon asking to change his appointment, the girl actually tried to dissuade him and asked why he had to cancel, making it difficult for him to reschedule so he ended up staying, using the rest of his wait time making calls to arrange for his son. Then at one point, she went around to every patient (and she is clearly not a medical assistant, but perhaps a family member working as receptionist it seems) with eye drops saying they had to take a dry eye test. When she came to me, I said I had just had it done 10 days ago, and she said everyone has to do it each time; I said I do not want to do it again, and thought it was very unprofessional that not only was she not any sort of medical assistant about to administer drops into my eyes, she didn't ask my name, the reason for my visit, or even ask if I was wearing contacts, which I was. I could have had pink eye or some contagious eye disease for all she knew, yet she was about to put this stuff arbitrarily into my face! As I write--because I'm still sitting here waiting and my 11:30 appointment time has passed--another elderly woman is fighting with her saying she has been waiting two hours, only to have the girl tell her that in the future she should schedule for Wednesdays because they're not as crowded, and the elderly woman snapped back that Sunday is her only day off. I'm annoyed but resigned at this point, and can only sit here and find it comical. I find solace at least in the fact that Dr. Khodadadian is great and that I only have to come here once a year, if that. Perhaps by next year when I need to renew my prescription I'll go elsewhere. Which is a shame because the doctor is really great, but who can sit around wasting time like this to see him?

I had a great experience overall and will continue to go. My appt was for 11 but I did a series of tests before seeing the doctor himself at 12:30. So even though in paper it looks like I "waited" along time to see the doctor, I didn't actually spend much time sitting and waiting in the waiting room; I did test after test, asked questions of the staff, and saw the doctor immediately after. All tests were explained to me prior to doing them and if I felt uncomfortable doing any particular test, I was told I did not have to at that time. All you have to do is ask questions or express your concerns and the doctor and his staff are more than helpful in their transparency and willingness to help. All costs for anything outside of my copay were also made clear and optional to me, with cost-effective alternatives offered without my having to ask (ex: the doctor said the prescription eye drop he suggest I try is normally quite expensive if it isn't covered by my insurance, so if I get to the pharmacy and find out it wasn't covered, he offered to prescribe a similar medication that may help that might be covered or at least is not as expensive). The doctor was very thorough, patient, and kind, and he answered all of my questions in full detail. I did not feel rushed or felt like the bedside manner was lacking whatsoever. Overall, I had a positive experience despite any apprehension I may have had initially based on a few of the seemingly negative reviews I read prior to going to my appointment. But knowing what I know now, I think it just comes with the territory of the type of specialist you are seeing to expect some preliminary exams before seeing the doctor; not all visits are alike and seeing an opthalmologist is not like going to the dentist for a cleaning. If you just want to go in, get a prescription for eyeglasses, and walk out, you can go to Cohen's. If you're seeing an opthalmologist for a more in-depth visit regarding your eye health, you should expect there to be some test, right? I also think that just asking questions or knowing your rights as a patient are enough to open an amicable dialogue between yourself and your physician in which you feel comfortable and heard when expressing concerns about your health and your visit, regarding everything from treatment to payment. Dr. Khodadadian was friendly and professional, and likewise, so was his staff. I will continue to see Dr. Khodadadian as my eye care specialist.

I went to have a stye looked at and ended up at the office for 3 HOURS even though there were only 2 other patients. The doctor's assistants seemed to be his own children that he was training, but unfortunately theyspent most of the time slowly figuring out what to do with me next. Also, he insisted that he couldn't write me a prescription for contacts unless I came back for a follow up visit. That is difficult for me because I have an hourly paid job and cannot afford to sit in the Dr.'s office for 3 hours. I was so flustered and hungry by the time I left, that I didn't remember to get a new eyeglass prescription which was another reason I went. So in the end, I feel like going to this doctor was a huge waste of my time.

My appointment was for 11am, the intern got me in the back around 11:20ish, he was professional and sweet. After he performed all the test that was required, which took less then 15 minutes, I had to wait for the doctorto give me my results. Doctor came in minutes after 12pm. So when he came in I was waiting for my results. It was almost 2pm and I still didn't get my results, I walked out.

What I imagined to be an easy routine, contact lens renewal appointment, turned out to be the worst three hours of my life. The service was beyond horrible. If there was an option for no stars, that would be my rating.His assistant tried to perform tests on my eyes that i refused, and then, the doctor himself tried to offer services that were completely irrelevant to what i made the appointment; all refused. Then a month later, i got a statement that listed all of the services that were never performed! He is just trying to get more from the health insurance carrier. He was in my network and all i asked for was a prescription for contacts, so this is UNREAL! Please go to another doctor and tell all you friends not to go. TOTAL SCAM!! Im am appalled!
