Helpful, unhurried (in a good way), incredibly patient and fantastic at her job. Dr. Iskander helped me into contacts for the first time at age 32 many years ago, and I’ve been going to her ever since.

Dr. Dian was nice and I liked the place. She explained each each step before doing anything. The only downside that even I came early to the appointment, I waited 30 min from my original time. Other than that, the visit was great.

She is so knowledgeable and thorough. As a precaution she sent me for Glaucoma testing and the specialist there highly commended her for taking the precaution.

Very nice and competent doctor. Wait time was very short (about ten minutes). I brought my contact prescription with me so updating it was not expensive, even without insurance.

Was able to book same-day and was seen promptly at my appointment time. Couldn't have been easier. This office did not accept my vision plan but did accept primary my insurance, and the cost for an exam and contact lens checkup was comparable to the vision benefit price quoted by another nearby office. Highly recommend.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Iskander, however I do want to note that their office does not take any vision plan insurance--only medical insurance, which means you do have to pay out-of-pocket for glasses/contact lenses exam.

Honestly, she was one of the best doctors that I've had. She listened to me really well and gave me a full check up unlike my previous eye doctor. She made me realize that getting a second opinion can lead to valuable insights. She gave me hope that my visual problems can have a solution. Great doctor, highly recommend!!

The entire family came for a check up and we were very pleased with Dr. Iskander. We saw her for the very first time. She was very patient with my daughters and would explain what she was doing. She was very thorough and did not rush through any steps. We left the office very happy and looking forward to see her again on the next yearly check up.
