This is an excellent practice, the receptionists are friendly and very helpful! As I was waiting, one of the receptionists took a lot of time and care helping someone pick out the perfect pair of glasses that she felt confident in.When I was seen, Dr. Nevzat perfected my prescription, and also explained what he was doing throughout the appointment. I was very impressed that when I told him I sleep in my contacts, he did not shame me (as all other past doctors have) but he offered me information that was helpful for choosing the best contacts for my lifestyle, and gave extra tips as well. It was a very comfortable location and felt “homey.” It was a very personal experience and it is apparent that the people who work here care about their patients. I will definitely be back.

He was very caring & since I have MS had experience with that type of problem. He recommended a type of prism glass for my glasses to see if would help. He seems like an exceptional man who only likesto help his patients without drugs or any other type of solution. I highly would recommend Dr Nev.

I had an appointment with Dr. Patel, and it was a great experience. He was honest about my prescription and what I needed for correction, and he was the first eye doctor that did not just try to sell me glassesor contacts. He was thorough and explained the whole exam.

The staff at Dr. Nez' office were fantastic, fast and friendly! I was so lucky to find a Saturday appointment and get in right away. Dr Nez explained things that other Dr's had not mentioned in the past and took picturesof the inside of my eye for review next year! I cant wait till my glasses come in so I can see normally again and stop straining my eyes. Thank you Dr Nez and staff for making a scary appointment easy and safe for me.

I LOVE Dr. Caliskanalp and his wonderful staff!! Due to my scheduling conflicts, they were niece enough to offer us a Saturday morning appointment - please keep in mind they are a Monday through Friday office so to give up theirSaturday is faaar above and beyond and I can't thank them enough for this level of kindness and outstanding service. If you are in the market for an eye doctor, I highly recommend Dr. Caliskanalp.
