    Dr. Tehrani has literally saved my eyesight. I am a glaucoma patient. He never seems rushed and he was particularly busy at my last appointment. But he still comes in and focuses and give you his entire attention. I am just more than satisfied with Dr. Tehrani. I have him on a pedestal.

    Everyone was wonderful, from check-in, through pre-op nurses and staff, to post-op care, and a wheelchair ride all the way to my car, not just the door. I was surprised at how many people were involved in my care - I didn't see them all, since I was wheeled into surgery backwards. Thank you to all.

    Hi, I'd like to say that he was just wonderful, attentive, and very aware of my needs, and even went as far as adjusting my medications to ensure that I wasn't paying too much medications. So he changed it from name brand to generic, and assured me that it would still have the same positive effect on my glaucoma, and he just was overall a great doctor. I really enjoyed the visit.
