I am amazed at Dr Mozayan's tenacity and dedication. Had i not sern him immediately on a Ftiday, it is likely my condition would have waited until my eyes were permanently damaged. He is thourough, kind, patient, and honest about diagnosis and prognosis. Thank you for your efforts!

Would highly recommend Dr. Mozayan to any one . He is one of the best physicians I have ever known and I have been an RN for years and personally know many doctors. Have never had any physician explain the medical condition I have and the treatment for same in such detail. Could not be more pleased with my experience with this Retina Specialist.

He was one of the most knowledgable specialist that I visited. He cares a lot about his patients and he definitely takes his time to hear his patients and give great knowledge about his diagnosis about what his patient needs to. He amazed me and I would continue to seek his expertise for my illness and definitely make referrals to him. Good luck
