My husband had a cataract surgery performed by Dr. Naseh. He was excellent the first time but didn't have a good experience with his second eye. But the doctor was not prepared to listen to us which was a bit disappointing.

Greatest experience I had at a doctor's office. Dr. Naseh is a top-notch doctor who diagnosed me with early glaucoma three month ago. He has been treating my eyes since then and I am confident that I am in good hands. Today I was greeted by a nice lady who mentioned that Doctor had an emergency and was running 20 min. late. I didn't mind the wait. I was called in after 10 minutes and doctor apologized for the situation. He has a wonderful and gentle manner. I get that some doctors see emergencie

Dr. Naseh has been our opthamologist for about 10 years. Both I and my wife have needed emergency appointments, and we were immediately seen by Dr. Naseh who rapidly diagnosed our conditions, provided the correct treatment and followup.

I went to see this specialist because I have Glaucoma. Dr. Naseh was very curious and kind. I was very anxious and he listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I'm glad to have find such a caring doctor to manage my Glaucoma. I recommend him to my family and friends all the time.

Probably the worst doctor in terms of attitude and treatment in the state of Maryland. I took my mom there for an eye check up since she has diabetes and right from the start, the doctor had an attitude and kept my mom from explaining to him her issues. He constantly interrupted and told her to let him finish before she spoke. Please avoid him if your are looking for a nice friendly doctor for eye issues. Have never encountered such a nasty doctor anywhere and his staff knew of this!

I've been to Dr. Naseh's office multiple times for various conditions. I've had emergencies come up and the staff has always been able to squeeze me in, even on the day of. Dr. Naseh is extremely knowledgeable and knows what he's talking about. He tells it like it is and exactly what you should expect. My family sees him as well. Highly recommend him.

He's not nice. I went once and I will never go back. Dirty office, rude staff, impatient Doctor, aggravating wait times (over 2 hours total). No thanks! This office is just looking to make a buck rather than offer legitimate patient care.
