The doctor was nice and friendly. But be ready to sit in the lobby for an hour before the doctor can see you. There were about 5 patients in the lobby with me and it took 55 minutes before they finallycalled me in. I was very disappointed. When I was leaving, lobby was empty. Not even one patient waiting there. They have no system in scheduling patients and that why I do not recommend this office if you respect your time because they don't.

Dr. Sabet is a wonderful doctor and really cares about his patients. He did my Lasik about 9 years ago, and I'm still seeing 20/20. His staff is very friendly as well.

Couldn't even schedule an appointment over the phone. They just hanged up, then my only option is to schedule it through Zocdoc! I go there and it is so disorganized and the staff were so rude!

Overall it was a nice experience and I would go back again. The only thing was the reseption lady got irritated very quick when I said I don't know what kind of vision plan I have. I thought it was onlytowards me until I realized she treated pretty much everyone the same way. She specially doesn't have patience with older patients.

I liked Dr Sabet, and I highly recommend him. The waiting time was long just because when i arrived for my appointment, they didn't have an appointment for me! Zocdoc failed to put the appointment on their schedule! So they had to squeeze me in when they could.

There was only a short wait time between my arrival and my initial checkups with the assistants, which was nice; however, I waited for 45 minutes after those exams until Dr. Sabet came in. That said, he has a great bedsidebanner and made me feel at ease with my first post-LASEK checkup in the United States.

Dr. Sabet was great, diagnosed the problem quickly and was very helpful! The wait was really long but it was late afternoon so I expected as much. Considering I was able to get a same- day appt for an eye issue,I expected to have a wait. Highly recommend the doctor!

I felt comfortable with his professional manner. My only gripe is the waiting time. It took almost 50 minutes before I was attended. The front desk assistants are OK, but the could learn to be a little more pleasant in their attention with the customers.

Visit went fairly well. Only thing that was disappointing was the wait time. I had to wait in the lobby for about 45 minutes (beyond my appointment time). The Dr. was wonderful. Walked me through the process. I left confident knowinghe could do the procedure. 1 thing to note: The office only does surgery on Tuesdays.

My visit turned out to be more crucial than I expected. The doctor found that I needed emergency eye surgery right away. I was scheduled for surgery about 3 hours later. Doctor Sabet took the time to explain the procedure andthe reason why it was needed. He was very thorough and worked with me when I became stressed out by the laser.

Dr. Sabet was very professional, and I do like his bedside manner. However, the office operations left something to be desired. Arrived 15min before with appt and then had to wait for 1 hr before being inprocessed by a tech. ThenI sat for another hour before I saw the doctor. Good doctor, but operations were awful.
