"Dr Aizuss and his team are the best! They made the process super easy for me. They’re extremely efficient and assuaged any of my concerns. I am thrilled with how low stress the surgery went and the results are life changing. I never realized I was living in a sepia colored world until I got one eye done and was able to compare. I was so excited to get my other eye done and now, I have 20:20 visiom 😀"
"I have been a patient of Dr. Aizuss for 30 plus years. Having spent my entire career in healthcare, I would not continue to see him if I had any concerns. My wife worked with him and is also his patient. We think the world of him."
"I am a patient of Dr. Aizuss but he was not available for me to see in an emergency situation. So I saw Dr. Huynh. He and all the staff are very accommodating, pleasant and professional. I prefer this office to the one in Encino because it is not as busy or crowded with people, and I can get seen without waiting very long, which is not the case in Encino."
"Dr. Aizuss and his staff are absolutely top notch. In times where good customer service is a rarity OAV is a shining star!"
"Staff was very kind, despite my walker taking up time and space.Of course, Dr. Aizuss, as usual, gave superior care."
