Patient Comments (8)
in Gilbert, AZ |
Earlier in the week I found out I had three retinal holes with fluid accumulating under the retina. My retina was starting to detach and needed treatment in a timely manner before any significant vision loss occurred. Dr Danesh opened his office for me after hours on the weekend, treated the holes with laser and essentially saved the vision in my right eye. This level of patient care is almost unheard of in today's medical world. I am grateful for his expertise and commitment to patient care

I had detached retinas in both eyes, about a month apart, 8 years ago. Dr. Danesh saw me immediately in both cases and saved my vision. I now do not need glasses at all for distance, and straight lines are straight. I am so grateful for having my sight.

Went for an optometry exam on wed. afternoon- the photo showed bleeding and swelling - immediately the office called Dr. Danesh and an appointment was scheduled early Friday morning... I am so thankful that they accommodated me with such short notice... I am now on my way with scheduled treatments. Cannot say enough nice things about Dr. Danesh and his staff.. I know I am in very competent hands and am thankful it was Dr. Danesh who was recommended

Staff is pleasant, efficient & knowledgeable; Dr. Danesh is confident, reassuring, patient, & highly skilled. He addressed my situation with compassion, immediately allayed my fears, explained things to me so that I could easily understand my situation, & conducted his exam thoroughly but gently. I left his office with a great weight lifted from me, yet secure in believing that if my situation ever changed I’d have a highly skilled and compassionate professional in my corner. He's the best!

Dr Danesh is amazing. Caring, kind, excellent knowledge and skill. My situation was unusual and challenging. Dr Danesh saved my vision and I can now drive an work again. Just a life saver. I'd be blind without his help.

This doctor saved my Wife's eyesight. He understands your needs and takes the time to explain all the details and make sure you understand them. Don't care how far away he is, we will never go to anyone else. He is the greatest.
