What an excellent experience!! I had my upper eyelids done with a local and felt absolutely no pain at all. Everyone was so nice and professional. Dr. Baharestani knows his stuff. He is the King when it comes to eyelids . Highly recommend him .

I saw Dr. Baharastani for a stye procedure. His cold, arrogant manner made an uncomfortable procedure even more unpleasant. He kept telling me to breathe normally. He did not let the anesthesia take effect before he roughly propped my eyelid open and started the procedure. I believe medical expertise to of paramount importance but so is patient treatment. I will never use this doctor again.

My mother and I saw Dr Baharestani to check her blocked tear duct. We referred by her ophthalmologist (Dr. Passarelli) who said he only trusted Dr B to do her surgery. We found him to be kind, gentle, and very professional. My only complaint is that because he is such a great doctor, it is sometimes tough to get in to see him. I can’t hold this against him because unfortunately all of my best doctors are extremely busy. I would recommend him and his staff very highly. My mom and I were extremely pleased with our experience.

The doctor was completely unprofessionally. Didn’t even examine me, he was rushed, gave wrong diagnosis. So glad I found out before I had surgery. Terrible experience.

My daughter had droopy eyelid surgery with Dr. Baharestani in 2018. We met with a few surgeons before doing the surgery because my husband and I were nervous about the procedure. In the end, Dr. Baharestani’s office was efficient and made us feel comfortable. I could tell that they were specialists in this condition. Her surgery was uncomplicated and her results are perfect. I couldn’t recommend him enough. He was truly the perfect surgeon for us.

No stars! First impression - efficient office. Truth - things were rushed and my dismissed. This has been HORRIFYING! Suture line on my R eye is much higher than L – rushed & totally uneven. I was told the black in the suture line was because of the sun - I HADN’T been in the sun, It was winter! I have very noticeable large red bumps on my right eyelid now that are unsightly!! I was told they would go away. That was months ago. Would NOT recommend ever!!

Dr Baharestani did blepharoplasty for me in 2014. He did such a great job that 5 years later I still recommend for my friends and family to see him. I was very impressed with his bedside manner and more impressed with his skills. He is an excellent surgeon,

My sister had eyelid surgery with Dr. Baharestani and I was very pleased with him and his staff. He took the time to explain the procedure to us and what would and wouldn’t be covered by insurance. I would give him even higher marks if I could on a job well done!

Dr. Sam was wonderful. I went to him for droopy eyelids. I had been uncomfortable for a few years. I was feeling an unnatural feeling. I guess a heaviness in my upper lids. My eyes looked half closed all the time and in pictures when I smiled they always looked closed. Because of my pupils being half covered my vision was off. For quite awhile my eyes felt blurry at night as well. Well thanks to Dr. Sam, I have no more blurriness. My eyes are open and I am very happy.
