It’s hard to explain the magic of suddenly being able to see better than 20/20 vision upon waking up when every morning since you were a kid you had to reach for glasses.
That’s the magic working with Dr. Mahili for Lasik surgery.
I was nervous about getting Lasik initially (lasers in my eyes?!) but heard of the benefits. I totally trusted Dr. Mahili — he never just tried to sell me a procedure, walked me through all angles of it, and only used top of the line equipment.
I’d recommend anyone looking for Lasik to get it here!
"Dr. Malihi is awesome, very professional, compassionate and caring and has the most respect for his patients. He makes everything easy to understand. He was careful to show me the photos of my eyes and what they mean. I really appreciated the time he took to make sure that he provided a thorough exam rather than rushing through a basic exam to get me out the door... and his ability to make the exam enjoyable. Highly recommended :)"
"Excellent doctor and staff. They were kind, on time, and didn't rush through the appointment. Dr. Malihi has a great manner and calming presence. I highly recommend!"
"I visited NELSI for a second opinion and found Dr. Malihi to be very professional, candid, and respectful of his peers. I'd recommend his office to anyone!"
"My wife and I were referred to DR. Malihi by a friend , If you are looking for a best Ophthalmologist in Portland, this is the place. Extremely warm and welcoming environment. DR. Malihi takes his time with you, explains the issues and treatment so you really understand. The best part, his treatments are done with care highly recommended."
"The staff and Doctor are very kind and knowledgeable. My daughter had to have her eyes dilated due to a possible illness. We were both very scared our Doctor made us feel like we had known him for years. He was able to find a problem and explain to us and show us without frightening us what the situation was. I recommend this to anyone that needs their eyes checked."
"I had a very pleasant experience at Northwest Eye Laser & Surgery. Dr Malihi was very professional. His office has more advanced equipment that my last eye doctor's office, that seem to streamline the appointment. I will be happy to return to this office for my next check up."
"I am very pleased with the way that he fully checked and considered all the aspects and especially his excellent explanation and communicating with me, I appreciate him for his his treatment and recommend him to all."
