Self-verified patient of Dr. Syed M Ahmad - Posted on August 26th, 2017
I was referred to Dr. Ahmad by an opthomologist due to an eye infection which required surgery, Dr. Ahmad and his team were compassionate and caring throughout the entire process. I am very pleased with the results. Dr. Ahmad as well as his team followed up with me. I have not experienced this personal level of care in many years. I highly recommend Dr. Ahmad!
