Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nabavi "My approach to patient care is to explain the condition in detail followed by discussing medical and surgical treatment options if available.  Dr. Nabavi explains in detail the risks, benefits and alternatives of any treatment that may be offered.  I always express the elective nature of any treatment that is chosen. There is never a reason to rush into surgery unless necessary due to threat of life or vision."

I recently had a lesion removed by Dr Nabavi. I told him I hated needles. He was very kind and gentle about it, talked to me the whole time during the procedure that made me feel more relaxed. I'm healing well and there's no sign of a scar. I highly recommend him!
