Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr Nurani is an amazing doctor. He is very knowledgeable, down to earth and explains things clearly. His entire team is a pleasure to deal with and they are so friendly. Highly recommend!"
    Jim Hronis
  • "The team at Nurani's office is very helpful and welcoming. We brought our 3 year old daughter to my appointment, to introduce her to the concept of optometrist appointments. Dr. Nurani was a pro with the situation. He chatted with her, allowed her to closely observe what he was doing, and gave her a popsicle. He gave my wife and I tips on how to encourage healthy eye care/development, and answered any questions we had. I'm always pleased with the service provided!"
