Patient Comments (3)
in Dana Point, CA |
Could not ask for better care from Dr. Havanesian!!!
in San Clemente, CA |
Dr. Hovanesian is more interested in making money & rushing patients than in serving them. He's disinterested in patient questions & concerns. Staff is rude, arrogant & dense. Patients are not even greeted upon appointment arrival. After front desk sign-in no one even looks up to acknowledge awareness of your arrival. This total lack of reception leaves you wondering if doctors at Harvard Eye are even going to see you. Technicians have a very negative attitude & do not even tell you their name.
in Irvine, CA |
Provided very thorough information for cataract surgery and post care. Staff was very helpful, friendly & attentive.
