My brother saw this doctor for eye cancer. After surgery and finding out that his cancer had spread, he took his own life. I wrote to this doctor and to the clinic, asking about the news my brother had received the day he committed suicide. Neither the doctor or the clinic bothered to reply to my inquiry. Our family is devestated, and we're asking for a compassionate answer. They could have at least responded, even if they were unable to release the information.
Its very frightening to have the flashing lights and floaters out of the blue, appear in your vision. This can be a retinal detachment. Fortunately it wasnt for me. Dr. Vaishnav saw me right away and reassured me. I knew with him on the case I had nothing to worry about. Thank you, Dr. Vaishnav. You're a great guy!
