Have you seen Dr. Melinda Hakim?

February 17th, 2015Brilliant and Great Bedside Manner
Dr. Hakim was recommended to me by my general practitioner. I had seen two other eye doctors who shuttled me in and out of their office and didn't take my problem seriously. I had horrible, deformed styes on the margins of my lids. Dr. Hakim took me seriously and told me she would do whatever it took to make it like I never had any deformity and she did. She gave me injections of a new medication and within two weeks, you couldn't tell I ever had anything wrong with my eyes. She reads up on the latest stuff and I am so lucky that my internist worked with her. She also put me on a regimen to help prevent styes in the future.

My son had a growth on his eyelid with a red eye that wasn't getting better for two months. I took him to several doctors who told me it was pink eye or allergies. Dr. Hakim got an eye culture and found out that it was a different condition entirely. She removed the bump and my son's red eye immediately resolved.

I went to Dr. Hakim for a second opinion and she was amazing. I had an eye infection that wasn't getting better with antibiotic drops. My eye doctor told me that it would just take more time. I went to Dr. Hakim for a second opinion. She cultured the eye an found the herpes virus in my eye. She put me on new medication and I was a thousand times better within one day. She really went the extra step to diagnose my problem.

I had been going to another eye doctor for 10 years. That doctor no longer accepted my insurance, so my general doctor recommended that I see Dr. Hakim. On the first visit, she diagnosed me with glaucoma. She did all the tests and explained at length why I had glaucoma and how I could prevent blindness for the rest of my life by starting treatment early. I can't believe my last eye doctor missed my glaucoma. She showed me complex studies and photos so I could really understand my condition. She made sure to check my eye pressure with two different devices. She is a delightful woman who really wants to get to know you and your background. She is really educated about all the latest technology and treatments. I am lucky to have found her.
February 13th, 2013Terrific Eye Doctor
I was so happy that my internist referred me to Dr. Hakim. She is so knowledgeable, thorough, and caring. She found a small tear in my retina and had it repaired the same day. I went to two other doctors who did not see the retinal tear, despite my symptoms. She is dear to my heart and saved me from potentially going blind.
