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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
