Great caring Doctor for the short amount of time he saw me. My appointment had a long wait (>30 minutes) and i was shuffuled back and forth from the dianostic room to the lobby three times. I felt that the doctorjuggles mutiple patients at the same time so i felt quite rushed. Would appreciate better appointment management.

I've been seeing Dr. Nadji for a couple of years, and before that I brought my mother to see him. She adores him too! Dr. Nadji is highly professional and competent and also a warm individual who seems to care abouthis patients. I look forward to my visits. I also really like the young lady who does the measurements/tests. Sorry I didn't get her name. This visit was the first appointment after lunch which explains why I was seen right away. But normally there's not much of a wait.

The visit was great. I waited a bit in one of the rooms so he gave me a discount on one of the services. The only issue was the selection for glasses. Wasn't the best so I ended up going somewhere else to get those with my new superscription.

He was kind and patent, and clearly up on the latest research and techniques. With my daughter, he was careful to explain everything, let her look at her pictures, and gave her the information she requested. Unlike many of the high-profileOpthamologists I've seen, there was zero attempt at "up-selling", or recommending unnecessary procedures.

Dr. Nadji was very friendly and thorough with his explanations. I am having an issue with a blocked tear duct, and he attempted to clear the duct via irrigation. Unfortunately, we he was not able to clear the blockage, but hedid walk through the next steps and referred me to a specialist in that particular area.
