Dr. Kian is an excellent Doctor. He takes the time to explain things and answer all questions. The Cataract surgery was very successful and I was pleasantly surprised there was no pain or discomfort at any time. The results are amazing.

Deceptive - This is a "bait and switch" office I had an appointment with Dr. Kian, I was examed by an optometrist Dr. Wayment who did not introduce himself and I found out he was not Dr. Kian. Dr. Wayment stated that Dr. Kian was not on site and that he is very experienced. Deceptive they sent me a bill for Dr. Kian services.

We have had nothing problems with both the level of care and the billing. Their internal processes are terrible, they forget to explain "extra" charges, no on call weekend physician...billing errors. I would never go back there and will make sure my circle of influence knows how terrible they are.

Deceptive! I had 2 appointments with this office regarding cataract surgery. I was not informed until the second appointment that the surgery would affect my near-seeing to the point that i would need reading glasses. If they had explained this to me sooner, even by phone, I wouldn't have come in for either appointment and therefor saved $60 in copay plus driving time. Once you have insurance covered cataract surgery you'll need to spend $6000 or more for LASIK to correct your nearsightedness.

Was skeptical that the laser surgery would help my mother's vision in her left eye, as Dr. Kian mention that the amount of scar tissue to be removed seemed disproportionate to the amount of vision loss. However after one super quick, easy and painless treatment my mother vision is much improved.

The doctor told me I had cataracts and then told me how much the surgery would cost for the extra laser and special lens that I would need. I questioned the cost and come to fi d out that 1/2 of it would end up in the doctor's pocket. He's a used car salesman.

went to see this facility for an eye exam. Dr Kianoush advised I had a cataract in my left eye, and then proceeded to advise me of all the different finance plans available to finance the surgery. He told me some of it would be paid for by medicare,I felt I was being treated by used car salesman not a professional doctor.As it turned out, I had an exam by a second optomologist who said I had a very beginning of a cataract,I had my prescription updated and as of now my vision is back to normal.

As a diabetic I need to have a thorough eye exam to make sure there is no retina damage and as a cancer patient I need to also ascertain there are no cancer cells in the eye area. Dr. Kian provided me with a very thorough examination confirming my last exam that I had elsewhere gave me lenses a little stronger t Han I needed thereby giving me headaches. The corrected prescription got rid of my headaches and my new glasses are wonderful.

I underwent cataract surgery with Dr. Kian. I was nervous about the procedure but I could tell Dr. Kian was an expert in this field and felt more confident knowing he would perform the procedure. His office is well equipped and the process very organized and streamlined. I was truly surprised how easy it all went and Dr. Kian did an outstanding job. After the surgery I regained nearly all of my distance sight and found even my reading sight improved by at least 40% making me a satisfied patient.

Very happy with my experience. I had cataract surgery. The part I liked the best was his option of drops or drop less, post op surgery. I chose drop less, can not comment how nice this was. Did not have to worry about anything after my surgery. Drop less medication was given while still in surgery. Awesome experience, very happy with Dr. Kian.

I always receive extra charges billing about 2 months after each visit with all copays and deductibles already paid up front, very bad tactic.

Dr. Kian explained my upcoming cataract surgery very well and I was given written instructions to take home as well. I knew just what to expect. He and his staff are excellent and treated me very well. Everything was done on time and in a very professional manner. I will highly recommend Dr. Kian. Merle White.

My visit was pleasant and professional. Dr. Kian, was on time, even when lots of patients were in the waiting area. His questions and thorough eye-testing were guided to pinpoint the reason for my visit, and after completed both, he proceeded to explain the treatment that would benefit me greatly. He also successfully picked a great Staff. I was impressed all around by his respect, courtesy, and efficiency, and I am extremely happy that I put my trust in Dr. Kian!

I am a long time patient of Dr. Kian. I have seen him for routine exams, eyeglass prescriptions, referrals to specialists, and treatment for cataracts. I am thrilled with the outcome of my cataract surgeries. After 40 years of wearing glasses, my vision has been corrected for distance as well as reading. I cannot imagine anyone being more knowledgeable in his field, skilled, or respectful of his patients than this man.
