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!

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 Her office is clean and well maintained - I have been to many dusty, dirty, and outdated offices where I feel like things are not sterile, which is not the case here.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.

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.
