Dr Brod saved my eyesight! I called over the Labor Day weekend with symptoms my regular eye doctor said to be on the lookout for - flashes and new floaters. I called and left a message and the doctor called back, not a service! He said, "you should be seen..." He met me in his office on Sunday morning and performed emergency surgery immediately to repair a torn retina. He said that had I waited until the Tuesday after labor day, I would have had a fully detached retina and may have lost my vision in that eye. 6 months later, I'm fine and my sight is back to 20/20. He is dedicated to his profession and I have 100% trust in his ability.
I was referred to Dr. Brod six and a half years ago by Dr. Patrick Tiedeken with extremely blurred vision and swelling in my eyes Dr. Brod diagnosed me with proliferative diabetic retinopathy. He started and immediate intense laser surgery and steroid injections approximately every 6-8 weeks. The improvement has been wonderful and I am now on a maintenance plan for these treatements of about four times a year. Dr. Brod is very professional with a relaxing, comforting and at times comical personality. I feel at ease with him and his staff and would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of this kind of care. My only word of caution would be that you should not expect to be seen immediately. Dr. Brod deals with emergencies throughout the day so their may be a fair amount of waiting time. I always allow for this because I know that once I was the emergency and he gave me all the time necessary which indeed forced other patients to wait. He is well worth the wait so I take my reading or crocheting and relax as I know that I will be receiving excellent and very personal care.
