I highly recommend visiting Dr. Bahrestani regarding opthalmic health care and other cosmetic treatments. He handles his patients with the utmost respect and pays close attention to their wants and needs. Dr. Baharestani was knowledgeable and able to answer all of the questions and concerns I had prior to my visit. His demeanor is professional and put me at ease, making my visit comfortable. He is punctual and communicative, which are two characteristics that I regard highly in a medical professional.

Terrible! So rushed and since my eyelid surgery a year ago I have been dealing with having half of my eyelashes way shorter than the rest because they were apparently cut off during the procedure!! Eyelashes that have been cut short never grow back!! Of course I went there to enhance my eyes, not to be dealing with a really difficult cosmetic problem that I did NOT have before the surgery!! I had many other problems afterward too that were totally blown off when I complained. Everybody’s demeanor was nice but what good is nice if you’re dealing with all kinds of complications afterwords because of rushing and incompetence!!

It took 2 hours to see Dr. Baharestani. I had to get back to work. I like the knowledge he had for doing the procedure that I’m having next month.
