Dr. Nadji and his staff were all warm and accommodating. I arrived a bit early and was seen within ten minutes or less. The technology was high tech, and their selection of glasses was enough for me to find a cute pair.

He's simply wonderful! Plus his staff were also great! Lovely bedside manner and he answered all of my questions while talking me through everything he was doing and checking for. He even made a follow up call the next day to ask how I was feeling and make sure I was healing.

Could not have had a happier more quicker visit. I already recommended Dr. Nadji to two people before I even got home from the appointment. He was very thorough in a non-condescending way and he and the staff were some of the nicest I have encountered in a doctors office. Thank you!

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 doctor juggles 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 about his 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.

Dr. Nadji and his staff were great. They were efficient, educational and very friendly. I was surprised that he did not try to "upset" me on more frequent visits or any other the things that doctors often do. I would definitely recommend!

It was one of the best doctor visits that I have ever experienced. Everyone was personable, but professional; technology was cutting-edge, but appropriate; and the entire visit was efficiently realistic, but upbeat. I'm actually looking forward to going back to pick-up my glasses!

Dr. Nadji exemplifies what all doctors should strive for. He is a professional above all else, knowledgable, dedicated, he takes his time and is not rushed, he answers your questions and concerns, and he wants the best for his patients. I came away wishing all specialists had his skills and shared his concerns. Bravo Dr. Nadji, i was lucky to have found you on Zocdoc. Your office staff is great too! Thanks.

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.
