I was referred to see Dr Lakhani when I lost my vision. I was scheduled the same day and see quickly that day . Minimal wait time even though I was an emergency. The staff was wonderful and the doctor even better !!! He explained my problem and I am confident I am with one of the best . He took extended time with me . Thank you!!!

Six months revisit at the Lakhani Center proved two positive personal objectives relative to my vision care. Primarily that self-care for one's eyes is an important responsibility, including proper vision protection, nutritious diet, supplementation, eye lubrication, and whole life awareness of the precious gift of sight. Secondly, the expert support and confirmation of implicit trust in Dr. Lakhani as my chosen dedicated specialist.

My recent visit felt a little bit rushed, but the office is very busy and this can be expected. My examination was very quick, but I would attribute that to Dr. Lakhani's expertise! In other words, he instantly knew that my blurry vision in my right eye was a cataract. His years of experience seems to be the reason for his confident and quick diagnosis. He will be doing my cataract surgery fairly soon and I believe, from reading the other reviews, that he is the right doctor to do this for me.

I used Dr. Lakhani and was extremely satisfied. He is professional and warm. I felt he really cares about his patients and only seeks the best for their needs. His office staff is helpful and cordial, and his expertise is top notch. My eye doctor - who referred me to him - was very pleased with the surgery that he performed on my eyes. The wait was some times a bit lengthy, but that's because the office is very busy. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of an ophthalmologist.
