He explained everything very thoroughly and in terms that I could understand. He let me know if something was normal and what I should be looking for regarding my eye so I know when I should see a doctor. He evenprovided relevant advices that I never knew about until he mentioned it to me. For example, it’s better for me to wear bi-weekly contacts over monthly. He’s better than any eye doctor I have seen because he did more than just provide eye glasses prescription

Dr. Dastgir is a great doctor, took his time explaining everything, was honest with his recommendations and very personable! Plus, the wait time was nothing, they took me in while I was still filling out the forms. Great office. Little hard to find but not terrible.

The office is clean and comfortable and the staff are AMAZING. My disappointment is with the eye Doctor, friendly yes but after my 2nd visit I just feel rushed in and out. He doesn't tell me if the nerves are strong,what my pressure actually is. A simple o.k. everything looks the same. I need to know actual numbers, where and how to improve. My previous eye doctor took the time to explain these things and I will be returning to him. I will miss the friendly staff but at my age I need to feel that I'm not being pushed out so quickly by the Doctor who BTW is polite.

Dr. Dastgir was amazing. I had an unpleasant experience with another doctor and decided to get a second opinion. I'm so glad I did. He was pleasant from the start. Very thorough in his explanation and really took the time toanswer questions and reassure me. I feel confident in his abilities I have a follow up appointment and this was my first visit to his office. The facility itself was not impressive and neither were the receptionists. I speak Spanish and nothing they were talking about was more important than doing their job. I for a sense that they didn't really want to be there and whoever came I was an inconvenience. Despite all this I would go back just for the doctor.

I loved Dr. Dastgir!! He’s very professional and knowledgeable. He tried his best to help me out with not only my eyes but other problems that might cause it. He gave me a lot of advices and he sincerely cares aboutmy well being. I really recommend him. The downside of the visit was that everyone else who worked there was very unorganized and/or rushy to get over with me so they can get back to playing their phones. There is a wait time trying to see Dr. Dastgir. But it’s understandable because he spent a reasonable amount of time with me.
