Verified Patient Reviews
Dr.Richard Najac was very professional and kind and. he answered all my questions and concerns. And I felt very comfortable with him.
This is the 2nd time I've seen Dr. Najac. I find him to be both very well informed and informative. He answered all my questions and was happy to educate me about my eyes. He is both serious and good-humored and very easy to talk to.
He is very professional and very personable.
He is an excellent doctor. Dr.Najac took the time to answer all of my questions. He took the time to explain my eye condition as well providing amole detail. However, his receptionist Kathya could use some training on professionalism. She was short and curt over the phone and unprofessional. I highly recommend Dr. Najac.
I was waiting for 2 hours. It's terrible
Well run office. Professional staff. Dr. Najac is thorough. I have been a patient for many years.

FOcused . Knowledgeable doctor with a smooth running office
Great staff and great doctor!!! Highly recommended...
Professional staff, doctor was clear and thorough, office was organized and clean.
Dr Najac is the most caring and kind Dr. He is so knowledgable and patient. He treats everyone like a person not a statistic!!!
He was great and explained all procedures.
Dr Najac has a pleasant and friendly manner. I felt that he heard my concerns and answered them immediately. The doctor was able to diagnose and help fix my eye medical issues.
I'm always hesitant to try a new doctor, but was so glad I did! Dr. Najac was so informative and detailed and assured me we would tackle the issue of my severe chronic dry eye and have me feeling comfortable again. He was pleasant, outgoing and listened to my concerns. Sometimes, you just need to get up and try someone new when you're not getting satisfaction from your current doctor. He's awesome and I'm thrilled I went to him!
Dr. Richard Najac is very patient to listen my questions and explain to me very details. The Medical Assistant is very friendly and helpful. This is a very good experience.
The wait was way to long
I was very pleased with my visit.with Dr. Najac because is is is pleasant, knowledgeable and competent.He explained his diagnosis very well and i would definitely recommend him to a family member or friend.. Mary C. Howard Beach, NY
Except for the long wait, it was a very good appointment.
Very professional and attentive. Answered questions and gave helpful information. Also, didn't prescribe new glasses unnecessarily since vision and current glasses fine though other Doctor had. Appreciate his honesty and taking time to explain things.
Very impressed with the staff and doctor. The office was very well kept, the doctor was very informative and thorough. I will return for cataracts surgery.
Such an amazing an attentive Doctor. If you don't mind waiting, he is worth it.
Amazing doctor! Maybe the best doctor ever.. :) The wait time, however.... very long. Also, there only seems to be one receptionist and one phone - they never answer.
I love his bedside manner. He is funny, considerate of your feelings about your condition (which is why his wait times are so long), very thorough in his exams and explains everything until you understand.
Dr Najac was awesomen was very attentive and answered all my questions. And made me feel comfortable. Great professional and bedside manner. I recommend him to all my coworkers friends and family.
Very pleasant staff and Dr. Wish exam room was more wheelchair friendly.
Outstanding. Explain and advice me the best solution.
Friendly yet professional staff. Dr Richard was patient and took the time to listen and explain things. Highly recommended
He is very knowledgeable and always takes the time to explain everything and answer questions. Great personality and bedside manners.
Extremely professional individual that conducts extra-thorough eye exams. Dr. Najac will double- and triple-check the results of his diagnostics if he notes any changes that he believes are too drastic with respect to your previous records. He also does a fantastic job of explaining the results of any tests to ensure that his patients are informed. I would highly recommend Dr. Najac.
I would go again. very nice and professional.
I love the service!! I don't have to wait long and services are very professional.
Dr Najac is a great doctor. I am usually a nervous person in a doctor's office but seeing how calm and caring he and his crew are made me feel at home. My previous unpleasant optholmologist experience made me hesitant but this office really made it up for me. The only down side is the waiting time but when I saw the doctor giving the time to explain and discuss my options I understand why it takes long to see him.
I have gone to doctor Najac for a couple of years after being disappointed by quite a few medical professionals. Dr. Najac is thorough, pleasant, caring, who listens, explains clear what is happening with your eyes, responds to your questions and doesn't rush his time with you. I highly recommend him! HE IS AN EXCELLENT DOCTOR!
I had an 11:15am appointment and wasn't seen until almost an hour later, however, it was definitely worth the wait. I'm very pleased with Dr. Najac's level of professionalism and bedside-manner. He patiently listened to and addressed all of my concerns and never once did I feel rushed during my exam. His staff is kind and friendly unlike many others whom are clearly disgruntled. Highly recommended.
He is and his staff are great, but the wait was 1 hour.
thorough doctor with a helpful attitude and great bedside manner. He explains your situation and seems knowledgable. Only negative is that the office could use some refurbishment.
I have been totally satisfied for several years with Dr. Najac. He is exceptional and a true professional and gentleman. I have every confidence in his expertise.
Great like always .
Great doctor, took his time to understand the cause of the eye problem. Explained everything in great detail. Super accommodating and professional!
the office space could use some more sunlight and better ventilation. The doctor is great - well-mannered and clearly explains what's going on. Only negative thing was the office ambiance.
It was my first visit. the reception and his assistant was great. Najac was very professional and sincere.
I was greatly impressed with Dr. Richard Najac. He has got patience to listen patient's medical history. He examined my eyes thoroughly before suggesting any further treatment. I was given different useful options for healing my eye disease and asked to select an option most acceptable to me. I found this a new approach in dealing with the patient which very few doctors will practice. Dr.Richard is polite to his patients. His staffers are ok. The environment of his clinic is satisfactory.I did internet search to find an experienced ophthalmologist. I got some information about Dr. Rajac in the Google search and decided to consult him. After meeting him I realized that i made a right choice of the doctor. Based on my first time experience I believe Dr. Richard Rajac is a good ophthalmologist. I suggest other eye patients also to benefit from the quality service of this Doctor.
The staff is friendly and professional.
Very professional and courteous team work.
Thorough, caring and clear explanation of his recommendations.
Dr. Najac is an excellent doctor who is extremely knowledgeable in his field. He was extremely thorough and explained the purpose and outcome of each test performed succinctly. Dr. Najac stays current on the newest technology, information and testing to give you the best care and most thorough exam possible.
I am happy to give Dr. Najac and his superb staff the highest recommendation. He is a good listener and strikes me as highly skilled and compassionate. He attended carefully to my concerns, asked good questions, made me feel completely at ease, gave me a thorough examination and resolved my problems in a swift, sensible fashion. He is gentle and efficient and inspires confidence. His manner is calm and focused. I know his patients are fond of him, and with good reason. I have to praise Kathya (his office manager/receptionist) and Karen (his nurse/technician), both of whom are smart, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. The first time I called Dr. Najac's office for an appointment, I was told that he was fully booked up for weeks in advance, but Kathya took time to ask me what was going on with my eyes, and when I described my symptoms to her, she told me to come in immediately and assured me that she would fit me into Dr. Najac's schedule. Karen ran a series of tests on me, and it was clear she knew what she was doing. She is talented, gentle and deft. Both Kathya and Karen know how to put their patients at ease, and they work carefully and with great consideration. These are all impressive people, and I freely lucky to have found my way to Dr. Najac's office. I recommend him and his staff without reservation!
My recent visit was in July 2014 and I've also seen Dr. Najac several times before. The staff is really friendly. Dr. Najac is polite, warm, knowledgeable and listens to a patient's concerns before reaching a conclusion. It is so refreshing and welcome to meet a doctor who listens and knows how to parse that information. Great doctor.
Dr. Najac is very professional and has excellent bedside manners. He explains everything very clearly. The facility was efficiently operated. I was just surprised that they charged for eyeglass prescription.
Dr. Najac is very thorough and professional and treats his patients like old friends. He clearly explained the potential causes for dry eye as well as the tests to confirm the diagnosis. Highly recommend! He also is understanding about how uncomfortable putting things in the eyes can be and is very patient.
I was very impressed with Dr. Najac. Dr,.ask me to call back if I need any ans. Doctor Assistant was friendly and her behave is very good.
I liked the doctor, very clear explaining all my doubts and concerns. However the office didn't return my call asking for a different prescription (Dr Najac ask me to call back if I need something different). They call my pharmacy 10 days later.
Great experience. Dr Najac was recommended to me, and I am happy I chose him. He took the time to explain his findings.
I had a very good appointment with Dr. R. Najac..
Doctor was on point always has been he knows his work Doctor suggests surgery his right Doctor Assistant was friendly and took her time to exam my eyes Good work The front desk assistant was a lil up tight not to friendly i guess she loves her job to much otherwise visit was fair
I was very impressed with Dr. Najac. He was very attentive and explained everything to me clearly. He asked many times if I had any questions and walked me through everything he did when examining my eyes. I highly recommend Dr. Najac. I have a follow up visit with him and will continue to come to him for my eye needs.
My visit was worthwhile. I am even determined to recommend him to others.
Best eye doctor I have seen. Highly recommended
Amazing staff. Professional. I will definitely be returning
Professional staff. Excellent doctor. I've been gong for many years and am very satisfied.
Dr. Najac is kind and caring. He is an excellent doctor and a true professional. Well worth the wait when it comes to your health. I wouldn't go to anyone else.
Had to wait almost two hours. Would not go again
Excellent doctor. Very knowledgeable and professional. Listened patiently and very thorough in diagnosis. Highly recommended.
By far, my favorite physician! Exceptional bedside manner, comforting demeanor, knowledgeable, & as thorough as can be. I truly appreciate his time and care.
Dr. N. educated us (My 98 1/2 mom was the patient). Dr. N's treatment plan was for mom's healing (regardless of her age) as well as mom's comfort. He had progressive ideas. The waiting room and offices were dimly lit; possibly for those with light sensitive eyes? The people working in Dr. N.'s office (Kew Gardens) were polite, friendly, and professional. A wonderful dr.!!!
staff and Dr. Najac very professional!
Dr. Najac is an excellent doctor. He takes his time to explain things to you and best of all he LISTENS and not just hears you. He is very accommodating. I would reccomend him to anyone. The low mark on the wait time is because I was late. But other than that, the wait time is less than thirty minutes.
Apologies for the late review! Now six months past visit. Wonderful visit. Doctor and staff were on-point, answering all of my questions with ease and making sure I felt comfortable. My appointment was for a chalazion removal (lump in eyelid) and the consultation, surgical procedure for removing the lump, and follow-up were all done with care. I was nervous to have anything done to my eye, but Dr. Najac made the process as pain-free as possible.
Very professional and very thorough I was very pleased
Dr. Najac explains everything well and you feel comfortable asking questions. His staff is friendly too.
I found Dr. Najac to be friendly, professional, thorough and informative.
Most professional appointment-answered ALL my questions and explained Dx - very unusual in todays medical office appointments
he is amazing...explained everything so nicely...and was right on the target...no confusion...
Very good doctor knows his stuff. I will recommed to anyone.
Dr. Najac was able to see me within a couple of hours from my finding him on ZocDoc, and clearly address the cause of and treatment for my eye infection. Very helpful!
He was great but his receptionist was kind of rude on the phone and zoc doc gave me the wrong appt time so that also didn't help
I absolutely loved this doctor. He showed me the one on one attention i didn't get anywhere else.
I was very happy with my visit with doctor Najac. He made me feel comfortable and explain everything in detail. The two ladies that work for him was also very polite and nice.
He is very nice and makes you feel comfortable and is very thorough!
Great doctor and organization
I had a very nice visit with Dr Najac. He is very patient and thorough in his examination. I am a worrywart and had concerns with my deteriorating vision and floaters. My neighbor and her mother are patients of his for many years. He has performed cornea transplant surgery on my friends mother a few years ago and laser surgery on my neighbor just recently. They both say he is a “fantastic eye doctor and surgeon” so when I said I needed a regular eye examine, they both recommended Dr Najac for my regular eye checkup. He made me at feel at ease and explained the process as he went through them. He will now be my family eye doctor and I can’t highly recommend him enough. He is a dear and has the best manners!
Very welcoming and professional staff. The office is soothing, organized and respectfully quiet. Every procedure is explained to put any apprehensions at ease. Dr. Najac has a calm and easy manner which is important to me; I detest doctor condescension and being rushed. He inspires trust and confidence. I can't work without my vision and I know I'm placing my eyesight under excellent care.
Dr. Najac was very pleasant and professional. He has a lot of awards and certifications on his wall that are up to date (2011). I waited about an hour, and I'm a new patient. He had a lot of magazines in his office so it wasn't too bad. He had two girls as his staff, one of them that only manages the front desk is not friendly at all, even if you are polite. The other girl that checks your eye is okay. It would be better is their attitudes were along par with the Dr. Najac's, then it could be 100% great experience. Aside from that, I would go back to see him again.
I was very nervous about my declining sight caused by cataracts in both eyes. However, I was more nervous about surgery. Dr. Najac patiently explained my options and I agreed to have one eye done. The results are amazing - I see things I haven's seen in years! I have now had he second eye done. Dr. Najac is an outstanding physician that I most highly recommend.
