San Diego Ophthalmologists Reviews

"I have had my eye vision exams done here for several years. The doctors are nice and my prescriptions always seem to be ok. When I was at my appointment for my vision exam I explained that the sore on my eyelid that the dr. had cautaurized last time didn't completely heal, they made sure I saw the eye doctor who cautaurzied it last time so I didn't have to make a second appointment and go back. That was great!!! After he looked at it, he suggested I see a plastic's specialist to have it removed. He said his staff would call with the referral. His staff is very nice but they haven't called almost a month later. I will call next week and I'm sure it will be fine.
I will continue to return to this facility for eye health and exams. The office is in an old house in Hillcrest which has great charm but is very crowded. I'm not sure how the staff works all day in such cramped and crowded quarters. If you are at all claustophobic you might have an issue with the office if it's a busy day.
Overall, my experience here has been a good one.

"I feel very blessed to have found such a good Ophthalmologist and would trust him completely with my eyes for any treatments or surgery in the future. ...The appointment went extremely well. His office staff was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly too. ... Dr. Alborzian was on time, down to earth, and personable. He seemed to really care about my well being and asked a lot of questions about my health before he started the exam. ...I got a full exam for Glaucoma, Eye Health, and Vision. ... He found that I have severe Dry Eye in both eyes - although my right eye was almost producing no tears after doing a measurement of tear production. ... After the diagnosis and ruling out of other medical problems, he took time to explain all of my options. ...He didn't rush me and answered my questions. As a result, he advised I start with special eye drops at least 4 times a day and gave me samples and discount coupons. He also made the good recommendation to continue taking supplements of EFA Fish Oil and

Oil Capsules - which have been shown to help. .... I'm still in just the first month of eye drops but will go back for a follow-up exam if I don't heal from the drops and supplements. ... I want to share my great experience with others. He really does provide personalized care!

".He is very thorough in his assessment and was the only doctor who found the macular degeneration problem I have. The availabilty is difficult, however, it is not his fault. He is very punctual with my appointments so I've never had to wait very long."

"He has his staff do the eye exams and he does the final one and comes in and talks to me. He is very personable and friendly. He doesn't do the billing. I will continue to see him."

"I am 22 and have worn glasses the last 8 years. My distance vision was terrible and I could not drive, see the chalkboard, or watch a movie without my glasses. I heard about

. He took the time to answer tons of questions that I had about the surgery. I also met with a counselor that talked to me about my options and the pricing. It's not really a cheap procedure but when it comes to having eye surgery, I wanted to make sure that I got the best surgeon. Dr.
San Diego Ophthalmologists Provider Name Locked
is really the best surgeon! The day of surgery they checked my eyes again to make sure that everything was stable. I really liked the fact that they are very precautious. The procedure took no longer than 15 minutes total. The technicans/aides that were in the room with me were very sweet and make me feel comfortable, especially since I was extremely nervous. I didn't feel anything during the procedure - when the laser works on your eye it is only a few seconds per eye and you see all these patterns and colors - it seems like a light show. Afterwards my eyes started watering but I could immediantly see clearer. The outlines of objects and people were blurry. I went home and slept the whole night. The next day I had a mandatory 1-day check-up and my eyes were fully recovered. I was really surprised at how fast the body heals itself. I just popped in for a monthly checkup and I am now a 25/15 (better than 20/20 apparently) vision!

"My mother doesn't communicate well but Dr

works very well with the elderly. She was able to identify the problem and put my mother at ease with her situation. The appointment went flawlessly. Last week my wife went to see her and came home raving about what a wonderful and efficient practice she has."

"They do a thorough check. There are 2 doctors in the office. Their staff is very good and they notify me what I need to work in. They are very capable and professional. I would go back to them."
A
"The doctor and the technicians were friendly and competent. They walked me through the processes, communicating what was happening. They effectively answered my questions and addressed my concerns. It required 3 visits to complete all of the tests and one to pick up the glasses. Everything went smoothly. The only downside was significant waiting to be seen at 2 visits, despite having an appointment."
A
"Excellent service -- this doctor even calls you at home the night of your surgery to see how you are doing. Then he sees you in the office the next day. All the other staff were kind and caring."
