Dr. "A" is pleasant and listens to his patients. He certainly is knowledgeable about his work. I get shots in my eye once a month and this month he actually made me laugh about it. The shot isn't that bad and this time he made it so I did not have the awful burning post shot!THANKS DOC.

Great experience from reception to doctor!
Extremely efficient and well run practice. Highly impressed! Amy at the front desk was so patient and kind dealing with an extremely busy office with check ins and phone scheduling. Dr Abdelghandi is so thorough and insightful on how to get the care you need.

Great doctor!
Dr. Abdelghani repaired my torn retina last year and today was a re-check. Throughout the entire process he has been very kind and patient with my questions and concerns. He is a very good doctor and I am very pleased with the good medical care I have received from him.

Exceptional exam. Courteous staff and appointment times are honored. I am 80 years old and have had eye exams since I was 6 years old...and this one really outweighs the others.

Dr. Abdelghani is the absolute best! Patients are carefully observed and followed by Dr. Abdelghani as they progress through their particular problem. He gives advice about what is causing the problem and he advises about steps to take for the problem. He has a very caring, knowledgeable demeanor and shares information with the patient in order for the patient to understand what is happening in their eye(s). He also has a caring office and medical staff. I cannot recommend Dr. Abdelghani highly enough.
