Dr. Avni performed cataract surgery and my left eye now has a "blur" dead center and his reaction when I told him was so rude and uncaring, he said and I quote "it's not like you're blind". Horrible attitude and apparently it matches his skill.

Dr Avon is the best I trust him he diagnosed my MS and I am very thankful to him. When my Primary care Dr blew it off me being blind he thought I was faking my blindness . I’ve had MS for many years but my PC Dr never diagnosed it telling me it was other things when it was all MS symptoms . I recommend him to all my friends Staff is very nice

Dr Avni is very knowledgeable about general eye care, and in particular, dry eyes. I have been seeing him for years and am pleased with my care. There is never a long wait and he takes as much time as needed.

Dr. Avni removed a foreign body from my eye and I would highly recommend him for anyone who needs a doctor like him! It was a great experience from my first phone call for an appointment to the office staff to Dr. Avni. I’m so glad it was such a smooth, pleasant experience, especially during a time where I was in pain, could not see, and just felt miserable. Thank you to Dr. Avni and all the staff at SightMD!

I first saw Dr. Avni on an emergency basis. I had a rather serious eye infection. I was given an appointment the next day. Dr. Avni is very thorough and professional. He treated the infection and I will be returning for a follow up and a routine eye exam... It is an efficient, well-run office and he is the kind of doctor who is willing to answer all your questions.

Dr. Avni was great. The office is very professional, my exam was thorough and the facility first class. However, I’ve now had three appointments and had to wait almost an hour to see the doctor each time. It seems like over booking because I saw at least one other person signed in for the same appointment time. I even asked at the third visit when signing in if the doctor was running late and was told no, but still waited close to an hour. If you’re willing to wait, great. I’m not sure I want to again.
