I visited this doctor and made the mistake of asking a few technical questions about his experience and the procedure. He got so offended that he refused to proceed with me further. The first duty of the doctor is to empathize with the patient and provide clear answers. Surgery is a business like any other and patients are not stupid as the doctors would like them to be. I have been researching my condition for the past 4 years and wanted to make sure I have the correct doctor with the right experience who can help me post surgery as well. Apparently just being a doctor to the SPURS is good enough for this doctor. If one is a good doctor, they should not be so insecure.
I thank you Dr. Rashid for taking the time to check my friend's eyes before his glaucoma surgery. It was very reassuring to him to hear it from you that he was in good hands with his surgeon. You answered all his concerns and put him at ease. I apreciate your skill and kindness and sincerity I have been your patient for 15 years and you did lasik on myself, my wife and my son. God bless,
