    The Assil Gaur Eye Institute has been my eye care center of choice for several years. They provide outstanding patient care at every level. I have witnessed first hand why and how they have earned the widely held and sustained reputation for excellent care.
    Dr. Gaur's addition to the team of care givers added significant value to Assil. She is a highly skilled and compassionate surgeon. She is also meticulous and thorough. I am in good hands.

    Dr. Gaur is truly the best! I had an extremely painful corneal abrasion and she helped me recover in no time. Dr. Gaur is patient, professional, detailed and compassionate. Overall exceptional quality of care.

    I had my LASIK eye surgery at Assil Eye Institute about 3 weeks ago. I was super nervous as my prescription was quite high (minus 7), but the Doctors and staff here made me feel more comfortable and at ease by being very thorough from the initial consult, to the surgery day prep, to my post-op care and answered all my questions. My vision is still slowly recovering, but I'm grateful that I have the whole staff at Assil Eye Institute by my side as I'm going through this life-changing process. Thank you Dr. Adeleh, Dr. Assil, Dr. Harris, Carlos, Diane and everyone else!

    I absolutely loved my experience and love my vision. I got lasik in Feb 2020 right before finishing nursing school. I am so happy to be able to go to work without glasses and ride my bike without worrying about my contact popping out. And soon to be a mother waking up at all hours taking care of baby. Now going towards three years after my surgery I use eye drops once or twice a week. Usually when its dry or I travel somewhere dry. I love my eyes and I am so happy with my vision. I am so grateful for Dr. Assil and his expertise as a top surgeon.

    I have been going to Assil Eye Institute for years. The quality of eye care is excellent with very knowledgeable doctors and staff. Also the customer service level is very high. Every patient is treated with respect and the staff does everything possible to make your visit as smooth as possible. I don't believe I could hand pick a better team for my eye care.

    Led by the amazing Kerry Assil this group is absolutely the best. My wife had LASIK surgery and I had lens replacement surgery in 2018. I haven't had vision this acute in 60 years. And no diminution since.

    Dr. May and the entire staff at Assil Eye institute are AWESOME. Dr. May always answers all my questions and gives me peace of mind that my eye care is in the best of hands. I felt that with Dr. Assil's amazing surgical skill and Dr. May's follow up care, I have won the 'Eye Care' lottery ; ). Thanks to everyone....from the front desk, the assistants, all who care for us. My sincere gratitude.

    Aaron Redman is a dream. He's arguable one of the kindest humans I've ever known. I also cannot say enough about Dr. May. He invests time in getting to know me as a person, not just a patient. Dr. P and Dr. Assil are also both wonderful. I've been coming to the Assil Institute for over ten years and rely on their indestructible kindness, support, and experience.

    These folks are simply the best. Dr. Gaur is tops in her field anywhere with glaucoma (she's fixed both of my eyes) and Dr. Pilyugina removed a membrane inside an eye that restored my focus and clarity. Together they diagnosed the problems immediately and corrected them swiftly. They and the entire staff have terrific bedside manners. One more thing: Dr. Assil personally took an interest in a vision-threatening problem suffered by one of my sister-in-laws. Her doctors had told her there was nothing more they could do to restore her vision. Dr. Assil saw that as a challenge and dove into the problem. After a few months, she regained full use of the eye.

    Dr. Pilyugina and all the technicians and staff were excellent! In addition my husband and I were made to feel welcome, and no one ever made us feel that they were too busy to answer questions. It was a very positive experience.

    I was pleasantly surprised but such a nice and helpful staff, and a doctor that spends time with you and talks to you. That is extremely rare to see a doctor for more than 2 minutes typically. So thank you for a pleasant experience.

    My wife has been an Assil patient for over 15 years and absolutely loves them! I started as a patient about two months ago and it hurts me to agree with my wife but YES ASSIL is amazing. From their reception to their techs to their Doctors, they are all amazing. They care treat you like a VIP and explain everything to you in simple understandable terminology.

    Everything about Assil Gaur Eye Institute is a class act. First, let me commend the skill and expertise of Dr.Assil. I had had RK in the 80’s and now was in need of cataract surgery. Jules Stein Eye Institute said I was not a candidate for multi focal lenses and could only opt for mono focal and dependence on glasses. Feeling very discouraged, I immediately started researching the issue and I found Dr.Assil - one of the few surgeons nationwide with the skill and experience to handle multi focal lenses post RK.

    Of course, I now had a NO from Jules Stein Eye Institute and a YES from Dr.Assil so I needed a third opinion to make a truly informed decision. That’s when I was referred to Dr. Nadji who said that while he personally did not have the experience to give me multi focal lenses, he knew Dr. Assil was THE CHOICE to make. And a great choice it has been.

    The whole process was pain free and I am seeing both near and far just great - no glasses needed here!
    In addition to being gifted as a surgeon, Dr. Assil is extremely warm and personable and you know he listens and cares.

    In all, whatever your eye issue may be, do be certain you consult with Dr. Kerry Assil for a top of the line opinion and the best treatment available anywhere!
