SHC Patient, Feb 2017

the doctor was really nice & friendly

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

The Dr. Moshfeghi probably just hates patients and/or people in general. He spent with me about 5 min, did not explain anything, though printed me a paper, which mentioned that I have about six problems...Now, I'm googling it, trying to understand what's going on and will go to see another doctor, but this time not at Stanford...which is totally overrated. Totally pathetic experience.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr Moshfeghi is an outstanding ophthalmologist. Explains things very well, very professional and friendly. Would recommend him highly. Problem is that he in such high demand that I need to make appts very far ahead of time.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr Moshfeghi is very nice and very responsive. He always pick up the phone when there is anything urgent I need to talk to him. And he is very knowledgeable. The only thing I hope is able to spend a little more time during the office visit to ask questions or explains my worries.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Perfect!

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

I don't feel that the doctor spent enough time explaining my condition or giving me a chance to ask questions. He had to rush to do a procedure. A lot of wasted time waiting for a technician for testing which took away from actual time with the doctor.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

good

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Darius M. Moshfeghi is an outstanding physician. I have had retinal surgery with him on a previous occasion, and he has treated my wet macular degeneration condition for the past seven years.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Moshfeghi is a great doctor and I have confidence in him but he is very busy and so the time I have with him is short and seems rushed. I would like more unrushed time.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Moshfeghi is a world class doctor. I felt safe and well-taken care of. I feel so fortunate to be under his care. He truly is a credit to Eye Institution.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

The doctor has always been a man of few words. In the past my daughter had to ask him to explain the problem I have with my eyes. If she hadn't done that, he would always say, "you are stable" and that was the end of the appointment. We needed to know the extent of my eye problem.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

I feel very fortunate to have access to Dr. Moshfeghi. I am very confident in his assessments and recommendations. And he also has a great sense of humor.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Generally speaking: It's All Right !

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Having an injection in your eye is not a walk in the park. Dr. Moshfeghi and his staff make sure that every step is handled professionally, with good attention, and I've never had any side effects. My vision is maintained because of these monthly injections and I am grateful.

Dr. Moshfeghi is excellent - couldn't be in better hands.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Too rushed.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015
