Excellent service both with explaining procedures and executing cosmetic treatments. His entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable and really care about their patients. I've been a patient of Dr. Kagan's for 12 years. I would not stay with a physician for this long if my needs were not met to the highest standard. I highly recommend Dr. Kagan and I'm very happy with the results from the services I have received.

Dr. Kagan is a special doctor who takes his time consulting with his patient. My dad who is 90 years old, was going blind. Dr. Kagan was able to diagnose him accurately, perform the surgery, and with the right medication, he’s able to see without glasses now.

I have been seeing Dr Kagan and his crew for a few months now, and they are really quite amazing. I'm pretty sure there isn't much they CAN'T do, the results are amazing, and the entire process from start to finish went EXACTLY as they said it would. The staff is friendly, yet professional and it is clear they enjoy where they work. Dr Kagan is cautious yet thorough, and I can't wait to go back for my next treatment!

Not only could I have my cataracts removed from both eyes (performed only 2 weeks apart !!) , but I could also opt for a lens that would correct my astigmatism and (!) Dr. Kagan took care of my pre-glaucoma pressure! I cant believe I'm free of glasses and drops for elevated eye pressure. I can't recommend Dr Kagan and his team highly enough. Thank you Dr. Kagan, you are a miracle worker!

Incredible experience all around, from the courteous staff that welcomed me to the expert surgery and advise Dr.Kagan provided. I got the PRK procedure and can finally live glasses free. The procedure was painless and the recovery smooth. I recommend Dr.Kagan if you are looking for any vision correction procedure. Lovely office space, with two convenient locations (one in valley and one in West Hollywood). I felt like I was in good hands the whole time .

I am SO HAPPY with my vision! I have been wearing glasses for 20 years and contacts for 15. I was completely dependent on them, without them I could not see my hand in front of my face. Dr. Kagan did my PRK vision correction surgery. It has been a month since my procedure and my vision is 20/20. I have never been happier with my vision. Contacts gave me such dry eyes and they were extremely bothersome by the end of the day. I would have to carry around backup contacts or glasses at all times.

Dr Kagan is truly amazing talent. I had my first eye lid surgery about year ego, effect was so great that I came back little later for lower eye lid producer with the trust only. During the whole surgery I felt really comfortable and I didn't feel any pain. Dr Kagan's work is always very meticulous and brilliant also his knowledge and skills are very impressive. Every time I'm leaving the institute satisfied and educated how to treat myself after any procedure. Definitely 5stars review-Alicja

Over Thanksgiving break Dr. Kagan performed PRK surgery on both my eyes. He came highly recommended from my long time optometrist, also in Encino so I trusted her. His Encino office and staff are very professional, close to my house, I've been wearing glasses since I was 9 years old. Today at age 35 I can see so clearly, Looking in the mirror I’m grateful to Dr. Kagan.

A week ago I had a fractional CO2 on my face and neck performed by Dr. Kagan. I am well aware that the final results will not be noticeable for few more weeks, I am so happy with my skin only a week after! I wanted to tackle my stubborn brown spots and deeper wrinkles. What a miracle this is! My skin is looking younger and more tight already. Dr Kagan and his staff are extremely professional and knowledgeable!

After 38 years of wearing reading glasses, bifocals or progressive lenses, I had the conductive keratoplasty procedure performed by Dr. Kagan. For the next 4 years I had no need to wear glasses, even though my work requires a lot of reading. I knew the procedure's effects would not be permanent and I look forward to having the quick, painless procedure performed again. Dr. Kagan and his entire staff are very professional and pleasant.

Getting lasik surgery was one of the best decisions I have made. I don’t need my glasses or contacts anymore and that’s pretty amazing. Going to Dr. Kagan was another great decision that I made. He really went over my options and made the process that much less nerve wrecking. His staff are friendly and professional. They really care. I had the PRK procedure done. Less risk but a little more downtown just be ready to take about 4 days off, and follow his instructions ! Do it don’t wait!

New Encino Office...so great for Valley people. He has the latest equipment in a bright new large office. The location is convenient ...on Ventura Blvd.close to the freeway exit for Hayvenhurst . The staff is friendly and efficient. The Dr. is prompt. One insider tip...street parking is limited in the late afternoon. I make my visits to him before 2 p.

I had heard great things about this doctor. I went for a consultation as I couldn't read without glasses anymore. Dr. Kagan explained in details why people over 40 partially lose their near vision. He spoke slowly and answered all my questions. He showed me an educational video describing why farsightedness happens and how it can be fixed. I had a Conductive Keratoplasty. The procedure took 5 min for both eyes. I could read the very same day. I told all my friends about Dr.Kagan and the CK surge

I was skeptical on corrective eye surgery until I had a consultation with Dr. Kagan. He was confident and did not second guess which procedure I needed for perfect vision. Being a professional race car driving made me worrisome that tampering with my vision could change my career. Kagan was confident this would do nothing but correct and enhance my vision. This is exactly what happened. I decided to write the review after my eyes had healed to give a through explanation. I had CK procedure whi

Dr. Kagan is amongst the top in his field in Los Angeles and I have no doubt in his skill. Thanks to him, my vision is always perfect. He explained the CK procedure really well beforehand and made sure I’m comfortable. He is very attentive and knowledgeable. It was a really great experience and I have recommended him to my friends. As for his staff, they are very warm and professional.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kagan for over a year now. First, I've discovered Botox injections to help reduce migranes that I've been suffereing from for years. The result was incredible! My migranes are gone, I don't even get minor headaches anymore. His knowledge and experience are hard to match! I have also done Microneedling procedure with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) after the initial minor redness my skin became flawless by day three! The pores tightened, minor weinkles became smoother!
