I had my first of two cataract surgeries with Dr. Adi today. She's absolutely wonderful! She came out to visit me in the waiting room put her hand on my shoulder and said she'd see me soon. She talked to me before the surgery as she was making her pre-operative marks and had me, a anxious patient about to undergo eye surgery, completely at ease because of her kind and compassuonate nature. She came out to see me in recovery and called this evening to check on me. I have no pain post surgery after a toric IOL implant and am seeing her in office tomorrow per her instructions. Dr. Adi is highly regarded by her peers as being a World Class Ophthalmic Surgeon. She's also a World Class person!
I was almost totally blind. I found out that a trabeckulectomy and a DSEK is never done at the sametime. This doctor I didn'y know from a hill of beans. She came recommended by two doctors who didn't know each other. With already being blind in the left eye by a failed surgery, it was even more scarier having the right eye operated on. She sat me down and gave me the pro's and cons of my situation. Then she said, I can save your vision and she did.I give her a 10 out of 10.
Dr. Adi is top in her profession. She is cautious but willing to work with patients for the best possible outcome. Dr. Adi took my case when no one else had the expertise to do so. After careful consideration she agreed to attempt a corneal transplant. With odds stacked highly against me she was successful. Her care and attention was exemplary. She is a miracle worker.
This was a second opinion for me. She said many of the same things as other doctors, but in a particularly unkind way. She had an "impatient, and above it all" manner. After I dried my tears, I realized that doctors who are above the details are the same ones who make the "little" mistakes that have big consequences for you. Not the same as others in the practice.
