He has a great Ophthalmologist. He has compassion and he addressed my concern. I am M.D. and I asked a lot of questions regarding my eyes disease and his answers to my questions really reassured me.

Dr. Nikou is a true example of an excellent eye specialist & surgen. He is so passionate about his job & his patients. I visited his office several times for my lasik & post operation treatments. Every time, I was greeted promptly even though they were dealing with afternoon rush. Each employee I interacted with was friendly, polite & professional. Dr. Nikou was very informative but also efficient & carefully explained my eye health from the tests and did an excellent job. 100% recommended!
