      I moved to Staten Island a while back and was referred to Dr Nejat. He's extremely courteous and a person one has no problems speaking to. His smile and wonderful bedside manner put me at ease immediately. I found the staff to be very nice and look forward to my return visits.

      I went to Dr Nejat several times and all I got from him was a negative attitude. He totally missed the issues I was having and basically told me to deal with the reasons I came to him about and to come back in 6 months. I wasted time going to someone who's more wrapped up in his ego than his patients. I've finally a excellent eye doctor who has taken the time to address my concerns and is working to get my vision restored.

      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.

      He doesnt care if you are waiting 2 hours. He is arrogant and has a god complex, that is why his reviews online aren't good. Remember you exist because of patients, the nastier you are, the less patients you will have.

      Bad reviews are well deserved for him, but I don't even think he cares. Rude staff, rude doctor, no apology for the long wait. Brittany very rude, she better stay with this practice because nobody else will hire a young rude, cold, careless person!
