(My last appointment was in February 2020. Before covid19.) Every other dr I have been to tells you what is going on with your condition and then gives you the opportunity to ask questions and if need be discuss treatment. Not him! Never tells me anything, and if he occasionally does even bother to ask if I have any questions, he just stares at the computer while I ask as opposed to LOOKING AT ME, and then usually does not even answer the question I just asked!!! As if he is not even listening to me! Never tells me what is going on with my eyes! I am not a dr & do not know what to ask! Office staff is literally completely replaced every 4-6 months! Schedules 4 people at each appointment time, so waiting room is often crowded and sometimes even standing room only! No wonder he has NO time to talk to patients like human beings!

I have a lot of confidence in Dr Abdelghani's knowledge and skill. As you might expect, the thought of getting a shot in your eye is scary to say the least but he is gentle and skilled enough that I rarely feel anything. I also know that he will not do something to compromise my already difficult eye problems.

If I could talk to someone in my situation about my experience as an artist when a retina issues takes over your life it would be in the following manner. Back in 2017 my right eye was 20/20 but for some unknown reason my left eye suffered and aneurysm resulting in a 300/20 in just a couple of hours. After two laser surgeries and months of follow ups, I can gladly say I’m back to 20/20 in both eyes. The previous speaks to the knowledge, and dedication of Dr. Abdelghani, and his team.

Staff was friendly and Dr. Abdelghani was super thorough with me. He's very knowledgeable and patient. Throughout my appointment he probably asked 5 times if I had anymore question. He pointed out the potential underlining issue I might be having behind my dry eyes symptom and suggested me to do blood work to investigate further. I have been suffering from dry eyes and stye for 4 months now and my previous 2 doctors never went into depth with me like Dr. Abdelghani did. I'm so glad I went to see him today. Thank you so much Dr. Abdelghani!

I had a complicated and very rare eye issue and was seeing two other ophthalmologists that were unable to address it with any success. Dr. Abdelghani identified the condition and prescribed a treatment plan that has been successful. I have great confidence in his skills and knowledge.

Have had several visits this year. Dr. A always takes good care of me. Sometimes his office is very overcrowded but that shows many people believe he is a great doctor. I think so too.
