I have been seeing Dr. Khanifar for 5 years, probably a dozen times over that period, for a sudden-onset retinal issue. He has been outstanding every time, explaining what and why he is concerned about something or why he is not concerned. He is straightforward and polite, and he and the office staff and medical assistants have been professional, friendly, and caring with no exceptions. Highly recommend this practice!

Every member of the office staff that I have met is helpful and friendly. They work together to create a calm, welcoming and professional atmosphere which I appreciate greatly. Dr. Khanifar is always willing to answer questions, is thorough in his exams and has been available to give advice and immediate care during the numerous retinal emergencies I have had. I have been under his care for more than 8 years and feel very fortunate to have him as my primary retinal specialist.

Dr. Khanifar met me with a firm handshake giving me the confidence that I'd be given the correct medical diagnosis. As firm as the handshake, I firmly believe the condition will be healed because I believe in the Almighty God, the healer.

The appointment was for my 93 year old mom's routine Macular Degeneration shot - Dr. Khanifar was on time, smiling and very reassuring in a charming way. He shook both our hands and proceeded to explain the need for the routine shot and then calmly and gently took his time with the steps needed. My mom was calm and their were no negative side effects. Thank you.
