Quickly and professionally got to my problem and was thorough without wasting time. Highly recommend this provider!
Today was my first visit with Dr. Majlessi and I was very pleased with her professionalism, competence and chair-side manner! I highly recommend her! I plan to recommend my primary care physician to add her to their doctor referral list.
The office is so clean and the staff very professional. Hardly had to wait to see the doctor and was able to get an appointment within 1 day. They even had an earlier opening that someone had canceled and called me to offer me the appointment.
Professional and personable staff; clean and cozy office and restroom; excellent focus on patient services. Dr. Majlessi was very knowledgeable, thorough, and down-to-earth. Her approach was not mechanical or run-of-the-mill. She took time to explain what she was doing and why, without sounding snobby or condescending as many physicians can. Her manner was professional and friendly, and I left feeling better educated about my own eye health and eye care. I am grateful that my primary care physician referred her, and I highly recommend her to others, without hesitation.
I was very impressed with Dr. Majlessi. She is very professional and nice at the same time. She was not in a hurry at all, unlike other doctors where they're rushing out the door before you can ask questions. I would definitely recommend her. In fact, I alread told my husband about her. The front desk receptionist, Debbie, is also very cordial and friendly. Dr. Majlessi is my ophthalmologist from now on and I highly recommend her!
I found great eye clinic that I decided to keep it for me and my family for the future. Dr Susan is really great ophthalmologist.
I and my wife are greatly impressed by Dr. Susan Majlessi in all respects. She is our ophthalmologist from now on! Thank you.

Very professional and easy to talk to.
Professional and informative.
I felt comfortable and received a thorough eye exam from Dr. Majilessi. I would recommend her to others.
Thought she was great-=WHY have I been going to an optometrist?? The difference is a chiropractor vs a DOCTOR!
I would highly recommend Dr. Majlessi. She was very professional and took her time with me to make sure I understood my diagnosis. Will definitely be back.
It was an Amazing visit! She is very detailed in her evaluation and goes the extra mile.
She was very thorough and paid attention to what was written on her history and physical forms. She was able to pinpoint immediately what my medical problem is and gave some good suggestions as well as medication she thinks will correct the issue. I have a follow up in three weeks so we shall see how effective those medications will be. She was very pleasant and professional. Her office staff as well. The office itself was very modern and comfortable.
I have a history (personal and family) of complicated eye issues and out of all my ophthalmologists I have been to, Dr. Majlessi has been a welcome relief. She came highly recommended so I looked her up and got an appointment for the following week. Lucky me! Dr. Majlessi and her staff saw me on time, answered the many questions I had, explained everything in a way I could understand, and offered me superb care overall. I felt her personable character made it easy for me to be comfortable and relax. Her office is clean and well maintained - I have been to many dusty, dirty, and outdated offices where I feel like things are not sterile, which is not the case here. Their attention to detail was unmistakable from beginning to end - clean office, check-in, patient care, follow-ups, and a pleasant demeanor to match. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the DMV area who needs anything from a wellness check up to more complicated eye care issues. We only get one set of eyes in our lifetime, so finding the right doctor is absolutely necessary - thank goodness for Dr. Majlessi... My search is finally over.
Doctor Majlessi was everything the reviews I read said about her. I truly appreciated that I did not feel rushed through my appointment. She listened to my concerns and answered my questions with language that was easy to understand. She is a fantastic doctor whom I intend to keep as my opthamologist.
Dr.Majlessi was very professional, polite and helpful during my eye check up visit. I was seen right away and she explained what my options were after my eye exam and answered my questions. I plan to go back to her next year. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Majlessi had an incredible personality that made you feel you were in good hands. I took my elder mother in for a Glaucoma check up, already concerned and scared, she took the fear out of the entire process and was super calm and wonderful to her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone, her professionalism and knowledge alone should make patients gravitate to her. Thanks Dr!
She aproctually spoke directly to my 95 year old mother, who has been dissed by doctors before. My mother understands, and at least wants to feel like she is in the room. Dr. M. did that for her, and also gave her a thorough and unhurried exam. She is personable, professional, and caring.
Dr. Majlessi has always done an excellent job at my appointments whether it's just a yearly check up or an eye emergency. She's is easy to schedule an appointment with. I don't have to wait very long when I get to my appointment, and she is both personable and professional during my appointment. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

I came in as a new patient. I found her to very thoughtful, professional, and thorough with my eye exam and visit.
Dr Susan Majlessi was great. This was my first visit to her and had a great experience. She listened to my problems patiently and gave me satisfactory feedback. She was polite and kind. I would highly recommend her.
I felt Dr. Majlessi to be a warm, opened mind and proficient professional. I wish to continue to be one of her patient's for years.
Very positive experience and I'll use Dr. Majlessi for my future eye-care needs. My only slightly negative comment concerns the ZocDoc scheduling process...when scheduling an appointment, patients have an opportunity to leave relevant comments for the Doc. In my case, those comments didn't get to Dr. Majlessi so I ended up having to repeat the info already passed to the Doc. Don't know if the problem (non-delivery of comments) belongs to ZocDoc or Dr. Majlessi's administrative staff. Secondly, as a new patient, I was directed to download and fill out some enrollment forms. All well and good and saves time except that when I got to Dr. Majlessi's office, I was given another lengthy set of forms to fill out. Why aren't ALL required forms part of the download package? When I questioned the receptionist, I got a shoulder shrug and a "don't no" as opposed to an 'I'll find out and get it corrected.' Not terribly proactive. Be that as it may, Dr. Majlessi is very professional and has great patient rapport. Highly recommended!
Excellent Doctor, and very knowledgeable in her profession.
I love Dr. Majlessi. She is so awesome and caring.
My brother said it was Ok. I had booked the appointment on line and was confirmed by phone and E-mail, when he was told when he called on the day that they had no record of his appt. at 11.30am . They did give him an appt. at 11.45am that was why he waited.

Very good and through
Very professional and courteous. Dr. Majlessi spent the right amount of time asking questions and sharing steps to address the eye issue, what to do next and advising of follow up steps if needed.
