Despite a longer wait, I found that the reason is that Dr Najac spends real quality time with each patient. He answers questions and explains processes throughly. I felt very comfortable with his explanations and treatment plan. Will be my eye dr for as long as possible.

There was a bit of a wait, but it was worth it. Three ophthalmologists later and Dr. Najac was the first to tell me exactly what was wrong. He gave me a game plan and walked me through exactly what washappening with my eyes. He was very thorough and I never felt rushed.

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 wasshort and curt over the phone and unprofessional. I highly recommend Dr. Najac.

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 butthis 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 questionsand 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 ofmy 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 diseaseand 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.
