Was hesitant to write a review, as it has been weeks since my visit. The wait was long but girls at the desk were friendly. I felt Dr. Nejat rushed me, it was an evening appointment. I was in pain and I didn't feel he took the time to listen.

The wait can be long, but the office staff is efficient and the doctor cares! He spends his time helping the patient rather than rushing you out once diagnosed or finished the exam. The victory girls really make you feel welcomed and I will always recommend this doctor!
in Brooklyn, NY |
I absolutely love Dr. Nejat and the staff! The wait wasn't as long as it use to be and everyone was very attentive! I ordered contacts also and received a rebate. I also ordered glasses through them, expensive but worth it!
in Staten Island, NY |
Both Dr. Nejat and Dr. Bui of Island Eye Surgery are amazing. HOWEVER - the office staff is really tough to deal with. The told me they took my Cigna plan. But then tell me - oh no we don't take the vision plan. Why wouldn't you disclose this before I ordered my daughters glasses and contacts? When I asked this question I am told oh we don't say that. Why? Great docs - but horrible office staff! One visit I'm told refraction fee for contacts covered - next visit I'm told I owe $160 fee
