Dr. Sabet is an excellent, truly caring doctor. He's also very personable and extremely nice. He answers all of your questions thoroughly and never makes you feel as though he is rushed. He is the best ophthalmologist/surgeon hands down in the area. His staff has had a complete makeover. His new staff/team is very welcoming and professional. What a wonderful change. They take great care of you. I highly recommend Dr. Sabet with a glowing review. I truly trust him with my health!!!!

I do not recommend this doctor. He told me that he will replace my eye lense with high power so I can see far distance but he used a lense with low power for reading which is the one that Ivdid not agree on. Please do not do the same mistake that I did when I decided to go to this doctor. Also the staff is rude

I will not be returning to this office. The doctors are very welcoming and inviting. The reception however need a training course in professionalism and respect for patients. I would not recommend this place to anyone simply because that.
Melissa, thank you for providing this feedback; I am sorry to hear about your experience with our reception staff. Since your comment in August 2016, we have added wonderful new staff members to our team who now work in the reception area.
