*Dr. Barahimi is one of the best physicians that I have ever had!! She is the most patient-centric doctor that I have ever encouraged - - right down to providing her personal call phone number and to following up with me after hours and on weekends. And she is a great oculoplastic eye surgeon too!

Dr. Barahimi was wonderful, very polite and knowledgeable. Although she seems extremely busy, she immediately proceeded to solve my problem (extraction of a chalazion). I was very grateful for not having to schedule another appointment for the procedure.
