I just want the world to know how kind hearted and knowledgable this eye doctor is, and what an asset he is to our community. Dr. Shareef realized that I was really suffering with an eye injury that I incurred overseas, and he saw me in an emergency visit on the weekend. His help has changed my life as I no longer have to walk around with an ugly red eye and the psychological consequences of constantly avoiding eye contact. (First impressions are everything, and with a disgusting, oozing red eye, I was really affected.) Dr. Shareef accurately diagnosed the problem, prescribed the right medicine, and now I am fine. Dr. Shareef honestly fits the bill of the physician super hero who through extraordinary effort, ability, and kindness, changes the world for a better place. Support this person and his practice!
