I literally made this appointment on the fly and the service was quicker than making an appointment months ago. I was literally in and out!!
Dr. Ghulam was very kind and knowledgable in his field. The other ZocDoc reviews were right, he has a high rating for a reason. Please see him for anything eye related. He is certainly awesome as well as his kind staff. Everyone in the office were awesome! Looking forward to the next visit! Thank you team!
Very helpful with answering my questions, as well as explaining various health concerns I had. I completed my paper work online and they had everything ready saving me time. I would refer the doctor and his office to my family and friends!
Dr Dastgir was extremely personable, full of information and willing to take the time to explain details. He cared about my over-all well being, was happy to educate and treat me and I look forward to working with him in the future.
I highly recommend him because, he is a good Doctor with patience who is also social towards his clients. My son his very fond with this Doctor. Thank you!.
The receptionist was not at her desk when I? arrived I? ended up yelling hello for assistants. My wait time was 40 minutes and there were no other patients waiting just me.
He was nice and friendly.
I love the doctor. The equipment could use some cleaning, the glasses storage shelves..could he a little more secured for the glasses. (Probably needs a little update) Overall of would recommend the doctor.
Professional, patient and courteous! Proactive follow up and attention to detail. Highly recommended!
His office is very outdated including equipment. The doctor himself is nice but his patients in the waiting area. Don`t bother.
This was the first time seeing this doctor for my 10-year old son. He was kind, gentle and thorough in both his exam and answering our questions. We've been to other eye doctors but none picked up on something unique to my son. Dr. Dastgir being a surgeon as well did and took notes and pictures to begin preparing the solution for a future visit. We will be back!

I love this office everything was explained to me and my treatment went well
The Doctor was very friendly even the lady in the office .My son is feeling very well for now. Thank you Dr.Ghulam.
Was the best and least painful of any eye exam I have ever had. No blinding lights in my eyes, so I actually left the visit without seeing spots the rest of the day.
The doctor was very informative in reference to just general eye studies and what he feels is safest. I really appreciated his honesty rather than encouraging a more costly practice that is becoming popular for children(glass contacts) to help correct eye sight he made clear glasses are safer and he recommends just that. Iv gone to eye doctors who suggest costly procedures that will benefit them (bigger pay check) but in the long run not work in my favor. I know glasses are safer that's why most eye doctors wear them themselves.
This doctor should not be in here! He has a one page medical form for you to fill out and it asks for your religion! How could he be allowed to do this and you at zocdoc should not have him listed here!
My visit was great. I didn't have to wait long and Mr. Ghulam was very helpful and professional. I would highly recommend anyone to him. I received all the answers I needed as far as my vision.
the doctor was very helpful and frendly
The office completely lacked professionalism. The receptionist was wearing flip flops. Not nice flip-flops, the kind of flip-flops you were in the shower. I forwarded them an email with my rx info but they never responded. When I called to follow-up, everyone seemed confused. Even when I read my rx to him, the doctor didn't really seem to understand and spent most of his time talking over me. Getting one simple prescription for my contacts has turned into an unnecessarily drawn out, unpleasant experience.
