SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Moshfeghi always put me at ease (and I was -- still am -- very stressed out about what is happening in my unwell eye). He is an active listener and even when the news wasn't good, I would still leave the appointments at peace.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Too rushed.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

These people have always provided professional care. They are an extremely busy dept - so one has to be patient.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Dr. Mosh was excellent! Post op day 3 took call @ 6 p & 10p.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Excellent.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

I am always confident in this provider.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Without any explanations or caring, he asked me to see other physician for possible CANCER!

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Dr. Moshfeghi is a terrific doctor.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Dr. Moshfeghi is very attentive to all my questions and concerned and he showed it by referring me to specialist eye doctors e.g., for pain behind eye & cataract surgery.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

I've been Dr. Moshfeghi's patient for almost 10 years. He's an astute, skilled, empathetic doctor.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

All were helpful and courteous.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

It was very good.
