    I like visiting the dr at advanced eye surgery clinic. I didn't at all like any part of my visit to the dr at cedar sinai, even the staff dropped the ball that week. But At advanced eye surgery clinic the dr has plenty of time to spend with each patient, she is friendly and has great bedside manner. One time she found an eye problem that I wasnt even aware of and was not experiencing symptoms from. Last week she gave me enough medicines to deal with the problem, which is great because I used to be in so much pain

  • Olga

Thank you so much for all your help.

    She is a truly exceptional woman. I was diagnosed with a condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri back in October 2017. I have been sent to a number of doctors who all told me the same thing. They were of no help to me and I was in constant pain as well as always being lost with my own condition. Stepping into her office was the smartest decision I have ever made and it stinks that it took me so long in order to see her. She was very helpful and she was one of the only doctors that gave me hope and knowledge that I would pass through this condition. Thank you Doctor!

  • Dr shahram

    I was referred by my Primary Care Physician for a major problem with my vision. I came in to Dr John Rezapour, MD and Dr Nafiseh Hashemi, MD for my issues with the left eye. I was truly amazed at the quality of expertise and care I have come to experience in this vey professional medical practice. Not only both physicians spent a great deal of time with me in taking my history and in examination, but the staff are wonderful and courteous as well. You feel extremely special in here, when the patient physician relationship is very minima in other offices here is totally different. The many technologically advanced instruments aid the doctors in precise diagnosis. I am impressed by all this professionalism. I feel very lucky to be referred to this amazing and unique practice. Thanks God that there are still very caring physicians around with high level of care and professional knowledge. Thanks and regards, Shahram Khial

    I heard Dr. Rezapour at 670am Kirin , Iranian radio , time to time and enjoyed his knowledge and informations. However I was more determined to switch my Eye Doctor to Dr. Nafiseh Hashemi when I listened to her at their radio show with Dr. Rezapour together. She is one of the most knowledgable Ophthalmologist I've seen ... Not to forget one of the most kind and friendly one also. Highly recommendedüòäüòäüòä
