I have been a patient of Dr. Najafi for years. She is extremely knowledgeable as a doctor not only in Ophthalmology but general medicine. katy shows a lot of love for all her patients. Unlike my general practitioner that hardly spend any time with me, she spends as much time as I need. Katy is also the co-inventor of the leading product for Blepharitis. I cannot say enough about her. I totally trust her diagnosis and opinion.

I went in for Chronic Dry Eyes.She offered a machine that "might " help LipiFlow.Completely useless and her assistant didn't know how to use it.$1750!!!!! Don't feel desperate enough to let them do it to you.
