I can not say enough about what an awsome doctor and human being Dr. Sanan is. I had no appointment last friday but his office nurse, got me in right away and I was told that Dr. Sanan skipped his lunch to see me so I did not have to wait . I am so grateful to not only Dr. Sanan but also his medical assistant whom unfortunatley I can not remember her name. Thank you for seeing me promptly and I was then able to return to my work.

Dr. Sanan is the only doctor I will allow near my eyes. A woman doctor messed up one of my eyes during Cataract surgery. She actually sent me to Dr. Sanan to fix it when she couldn't. (One of my eye's pupils was elongated and Dr. Sanan fixed it and I can now see great. I highly recommend him. Also, he gave me several follow up visits and didn't charge me. How many doctors do that. I understand that his family is full of doctors, so it runs in the family.
