Thanks to Dr. Moshfegi's correct diagnosis and treatment, I am able to have a good quality of life. He is very kind and always takes time to answer any questions or concerns I have

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

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

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.
