Incredible Doctor! Many doctors are experts in their field but many care about their patients like Dr. Aghai. He is an expert, spend time explaining my condition to me and answered all my questions patiently. Dr. Aghai truly cares for his patients. He is mindful, attentive and very knowledgeable ophthalmologist.

Dr. Aghai performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. One in May 2016, and the other in June 2016, at Memorial Hospital of Gardena. I had ReStor lens implanted in each eye and my vision is now wonderful! He is a very competent surgeon and has a very relaxing manner. Waiting room times are usually VERY long.

Respectful, knowledgable and caring. He came to his office on the weekend to see my grandson 's eye when he got hit by a basketball while visiting during his winter vacation. He did NOT send us to the ER to wait for hours and having to pay ER fees. Instead he treated my grandson in his office without charge because my grandson didn't have insurance. A rare doctor in this day and age who really cares about his patients. Thank you Dr. Aghai!
