I had been to several other doctors on the island and no one could figure out what was wrong with me. Dr. Nejat figured out to help in in less than 10 minutes. He asked questions that no one else thought to ask and he took his time to explain what was wrong. I sing his praises everyday.

I recommend Dr. Nejat without reservation. He performed surgery to correct cataracts in both eyes and the experience was life altering. I have severe astigmatism in both eyes and wore glasses for 65 years. I could not be happier with the results. Dr. Nejat spent as much time as I needed to explain the procedure and allay my fears and his office and staff are professional and efficient. The best experience with life altering results! Thank you Dr. Nejat!

Dr Nejat was recommended by my primary doctor to me when I started seeing blurry. I was diagnosed with a cataract and Dr Nejat explained to me all the options available including the symfony lens which could help me see near and far. I went for a second opinion just in case but the other doctor I did not spend anywhere near as much time with me and definitely did not have as updates an office as Dr Nejat. I decided to go with Dr Nejat and now have 20/20 vision in both eyes. I am very happy.

Great experience with Dr. Nejat. I work at another doctor's office in Staten Island and I wanted to have have cataract surgery. Dr. N spent a fair amount of time with me describing what a cataract was and how the surgery was performed. He gave me the opportunity to ask all my questions. He spoke clearly and in words that made sense to me. He smiled and I could tell he takes pride in his work. I chose a premium lens (Symfony) and I can not only see more clearly, but I can read without glasses

I have been seeing do. Nejat for about three or four years And I can definitely see a change in the office. Greed set in. Too many patients so the quality of service has decreased. I feel rushed now. I feel my eyes got worse! Oh yeah, problem still not solved. His office is starting to remind me of another doctors office I left or the same reason. Time to look fora other office just don't know who to trust, unless I just go to Manhattan which is a hassle. The office was better years ago.
