I first went to her when she opened up her Lorton office a couple of years ago. I haven't needed to to see an Ophthalmologist until recently when I was put on a medication for RA which can mess with theretina of the eyes. I remembered seeing her and made an appointment again with her. Her staff has expanded and they are just as nice and professional as she is. She was running a little late and apologized for the wait but explained that she was working in patients with emergencies. She is very professional and answered all of my questions. I made an appointment for my husband when I left because he needs to see her for his diabetes.

Susan was great. I tried to show up at least 20 min early for my appointment because I knew that I would have to fill out paperwork and that takes some time, but had trouble finding the place. As soon asI was done with my paperwork, I was brought right in. My only constructive feedback is regarding the front desk ladies. They didn't seem very cordial, straight faced- like they didn't want to be there. Not a very good first impression as a new client.

Dr. Majlessi is a good doctor. She is efficient and brisk. The front desk staff definitely needs to be trained as she is pretty slow. I gave her my insurance card and she didn't bother to return until I asked forthe card. Similarly at the time of payment, she was painfully slow. I think if Dr. Majlessi would like her practice to run well, she definitely needs to train her better as it reflects badly on her practice.

I wish more Doctors were like this because it really is a rare find these days. Where appointments aren't overbooked and the Doctor really has the appropriate amount of time to devote to your appointment so that neither of you feelrushed - it's a great experience! Dr. Majlessi was professional, attentive, and informative. She listened to my concerns, diagnosed me, and thoroughly explained the cause of my condition, which for someone like me, who always wants to know the "why?" I appreciated the explanation. Grateful to have found such a caring and informative eye doctor. I would highly recommend her!

Dr Majlessi is the best Ophthalmologist I have ever seen! Her office is very nice, clean, and modern. Her staff are very friendly and helpful. It is so rare today to have an MD that is so patient friendly. Dr Majlessicame to escort me to her treatment room herself. She is extremely polished and professional yet so very down to earth. Believe me that type of treatment certainly doesn't exist anymore with seeing doctors! Her demeanor reminds me of being treated by my family doctor back up in PA when I was a child. Someone that is very capable, yet can still maintain a personal level of treatment and makes each patient feel that she will do whatever she needs to supply them with the best treatment possible. I never thought I would experience that type of doctor anymore and thankfully I still do.

Dr. Majlessi is so good I was tempted to give her a bad rating just to keep her from getting overcrowded. She is thorough, and quick without being rushed and the office staff is top notch. I know she will beturning away new patients soon because once the word gets out how good she is.
