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 was a bit long. I waited about one hour before being seen by the doctor.
He is very aggressive, not patient, and not understanding.
After waiting 45 minutes after our appointment time we were told it would be at least another hour. This was our first and perhaps last time to this office.
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 2 HOURS ( 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.
It was interesting experience, he has a lot of assistants that help him.
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.
The office staff was engaging, professional, and efficient. Dr. Khodadadian was attentive and seemed invested in me as a patient.
He is a good Doctor but The wait time in his office was more than 4 hours and his secretaries told me this is the way he works and he is very busy.
The doctor is extremly knowledgable.i would definetly go back.
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 since they 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.
Great doctor and staff , very patient
The wait was long, but worth it. Staff was courteous and professional.
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 more professional 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.
He's is a very intelligent man, knows his stuff. The staff was really friendly and helpful
It's a very comprehensive exam and everyone is very pleasant and competent but the wait time is too long.
He was very pressed for time did not help my eye issue at all.
Horrible waiting time and incompetent staff.
Very professional and very polite staff I would recommend this Dr
The office is pleasant, with helpful, considerate, but very efficient staff. The physician and para-professionals were reassuring, well-informed, and extremely professional, with a warmth of human kindness in their manner. I felt confident I was getting their full attention and consideration at all times.
Experience of a lifetime, it get better and better all day everyday, friendly staff, I love them Dr K is the best ??????
He was very polite. He was very informative and knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable and at ease. It was a good first impression.
Long wait. When I was finally seen the doctor was multitasking with other patients. Really bad experience.
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.
He was very professional and the staff was helpful. It was worth the time spent.
Great Doctor, highly recommend
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't finish 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!
Great Doctor friendly staff lovely environment
He was very pleasant and informative..explain in details all my concern..and me being a new patient..it was very refreshing and also I got complimentary gift for being a new patient
The receptionist and assistance are nice and professional! Though I waited for nearly two hours to be seen. Dr. Khodadadian apologized for the long wait and even handed me gifts for that. He played classical music while treating patients, very calm, nice, and knowledgable. Highly recommend him to anyone!!!
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" a long 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.
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 up my 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?
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 doctor to 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.
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 they spent 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.
the Secretary was very nice and polite and patient she is a very warm person she took time to be very helpful I must admit she s also vey cute...
Very nice office and very polite staff... And doctor Daniel is very professional and know his bizines very we'll...
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!
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 bill to 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 is good.
It was honestly a long wait but I didn't mind it was a great visit I got to learn a lot about the human eye that I did not know of. I liked the honesty of the personal not rude at all. In overall loved it definitely going back and also highly recommend it.
There was alot of back and forth from room to room, the staff seemed unsure of what they were doing, the female attendant accidently hit me in the face with one of the machines and the wait to see the doctor was ridiculously long.
The best doctor !!!
I had 3 appointments with him all bad experiences with this doctor. AND to make a long story short, the third visit will be my last visit with him. I will talk about him to my friends so they won't go through the same experience I'd been. Very very very BAD practice doctor. You are a disgrace of your profession. Shame on you.
was made to wait for over an hour and felt like the doctor was being aggressive toward me because i was asking questions about the health of my eye.
Great nice dr
Knows what he is doing very knowledgeable on my eyes. Felt comfortable and eased
I was very pleased with my visit to Dr. Khodadadian. The office and staff is welcoming and pleasant. As a new patient transferring from a doctor I had been seeing for six years, I was apprehensive. Dr. Khodadadian performed all of the diagnostic tests my previous doctor did and I was reassured by his thoroughness. He has an excellent bedside manner and is extremely patient in his explanations. I would absolutely recommend him!
The doctor made sure to explain what was wrong with me eyes in terms I would understand and the full range of options I had for treatment. He explained the difference between soft lenses, hard lenses, and glasses (I haven't needed corrective lenses until this visit) and the pros and cons of each of them. He also put a high emphasis on my comfort level with each of the options and referred me to a specialist that could help me even more in figuring out what was wrong with my eyes. I am going back for a follow up because he wants to make sure the lenses he gave me are comfortable and effective for me and to run more tests, so that he can get an even more complete understanding of my case.
He is an excellent doctor
Great visit in his new office. He gave me a complete eye exam. I will refer other patients to him.
Very professional , informative and nice attitude . The doctor was so fast but careful. The staff was so prepared . I would recommend him for his great care and time saving.
Thorough and professional.
The doctor and his staff were very thorough and detailed with their examination of my eyes. They identified my problem but also used every tool and test at their disposal to check my overall eye health. I was very pleased with the experience.
Very profestional ...
A bit unprofessional and untidy. Tests done in waiting room/ lobby seemed odd. Put contact lenses in myself in the bathroom while eyes were numb and dilated. Did not inform me of the purposes of tests performed.
Do not go to this doctor! Perhaps his other offices are better serviced, but this doctor is more concerned with having multiple offices than actually treating patients with quality care. My first visit, the staff dialated my eyes without informing me that they were doing this procedure and that it would have lasting effects for the next 2 hours. When I was upset about this, they effectively denied any sort of thing. Their files are not digital and cannot be easily transferred to other offices (or even referenced ) if you call on a day that that particular office that you visited is not open. In addition to exorbitant fees, the office offered to buy my contact supplies for me. I thought this was easiest as well. A few months later when I needed to buy more, I ordered online at 1-800-Contacts. It was substantially cheaper. The office was not only making a profit off of my visit but also marking up the packages of contacts for me to purchase! Overall, I would not recommend this opthamologist to anyone. I had a terrible experience here.
Very unapologetic and self important. Two hours late both visits, staff is also rude. The actual care or condition of the eye is not considered, only quick routine type check up with uncertified assistants.
The staff called me to come in an hour earlier because the office wanted to close early due to weather conditions, of course I agreed. I rush out of work to get there and had to wait and an hour and a half, 30 minutes after my original scheduled time. The doctor himself was very unprofessional, he must have answered his cell phone at least 5 times in the middle of the appoinment and he was really rude with his assistant yelling at her in front of patients about the way she had set up his chair. Just overall really bad experience I would not recommend him to anyone I know.
Very thorough exam
This doctor sucks he wants to milk the insurance company with several unnecessary visits.
El doctor es muy amable habla español entiende su problema y preocupado como esta el paciente y me dio ayuda al problema de mi seguro de workers compensation.
Beside the long wait, I was surprise by the amount of technology they use on you in order to find out what is going in with your eyes, I had an infection, which was BAD but the doctor calm me down and gave me antibiotics right away! Explained to me thoroughly what it meant to have infortrack or ulcer....but was nice enough to give me try on of daily contacts. Deffinitely confused back.
Service was phenomenal.
Dr. Khodadadian and his staff are fantastic, they were all very friendly, answered all my questions and made my visit there a great experience. I will definitely be going back!!!
Good experience. The doctor and his staff wer
The wait was extremely disturbing
He was great. He was deeply informative and checked for conditions that I am more susceptible to. He went above and beyond the regular check up.
ok visit. Thorough examination.
Texting.... the whole time. Also, he does not show up to the Utica Ave office until at least 12:30/1:00 so beware if you make/ are given an appointment for before that time.
The wait was crazy but I think the overall visit was worth it. Dr. Khodadadian was very patient, explained everything thoroughly and actually had a bedside manner.
The receptionist and support staff was excellent. They were very courteous and well mannered. Dr K was very patient and explained all the procedures in an easy to understand way. I am definitely going back.
The staff was helpful, but the wait was RIDICULOUS.
Ok but the waiting time was too long
EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT DOCTOR. I WAS SKEPTICAL AT FIRST BUT HE IS THE ONLY DOCTOR IN THE PAST 3 YEARS THAT ACTUALLY SOLVED MY PROBLEM AND DID SOMETHING FOR ME. HE'S A BUSY DOCTOR BUT THE SERVICE I RECEIVED WAS GREAT AND I FEEL SATISFIED AND FINALLY A DOCTOR WHO KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING.I THANK HIM A MILLION.
Very thorough and professional. very impressed.
He was professional and seems knowlefgeable about what he was doing.
Dr Daniel is a pretty good doctor
Very nice and professional.
the wait time was a little bit long but for the professional that he is and by the care he takes with each patient when doing his job, it is completely understandable. ive had multiple visits to doctor K and i was pleased with every visit.
very good Doctor
Terrible experience - the office was disorganized. I was seen right away by the assistants (who were very nice) and then after they gave me the dilation drops I waited over TWO HOURS (as did at least 5 other people) before I was seen by Dr. Khodadian, who was incredibly brusque with me, saw me for about two minutes and gave me a prescription despite the fact that I didn't have a chance to give him almost any feedback about the lenses. I wish I could get my insurance back, what a waste. Now I have to do the whole thing again and I don't know if I can have it covered. It was miserable, I cried in the waiting room.
He was very professional and helpful and kind. Just waiting was very long, people less patient would probably end up leaving.
He addressed all of my concerns and I was very happy with the service he and his staff provided.
very professional and easy to understand and deal with.tests were done,i was in formed about the results right away.id reccomend him to anyone
I had an appointment at 4:30. The doctor left the office at 4:45 and didn't come back until 5:30. No explanation was given and when I brought it up no apology was offered. This is totally unacceptable.
Knowledgeable, personable and thorough. Office and equipment are clean and up-to-date. His staff was friendly, patient and helpful. I didn't experience a long wait at all, however that of course would depend on how busy the doctor is on the given day. Overall, a good experience.
He is one of the best eye doctors in the city, unfortunately that means you have to wait a bit. I am becoming more patience.
I thought Dr. K was very helpful and knowledgable however, the wait and his staff's interaction with me made my visit extremely frustrating. When I asked how much longer after waiting for almost an hour they were rude and abrupt with me. They said, "its called a waiting room for a reason", I can't think of a ruder response.
The Doctor was very good and Knowledgable
Dr Khodadadian is very thorough, great personality and highly knowledgeable.
Dr Khodadadian is very knowledgeable and thorough. I went through many tests which I am hoping will allow the Dr to fit in the latest and most practical set of contacts and glasses.
Very business oriented, not patient. Waiting room full of people doctor arrives two hours later and than rush begins.
