What People Say About Dr. Shervin Alborzian, MD
Reply
Dr. Alborzian is a very compassionate and patient ophthalmologist. He did both my cataract surgeries and was extremely accommodating in my outpatient surgery scheduling due to a complicated time frame for me. He is one of those physicians who doesn't rush in his examination of your eyes and isn't showing you videos in the waiting room to promote cataract surgery. He never pushed me into the surgery: in fact he had me wait until I felt the need to be treated. His post-op care was superb!
