Dr. Tamer H Mahmoud has the following 1 specialty
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

I believe Dr Mahmoud is a dedicated & very experienced eye doctor. I have diabetic retinopathy and have been his patient for 3+ years. He always answers any & all questions that I have. His procedures have restored my vision so that I can drive my car. I have the upmost confidence in him. However, the total time for each visit is approximately 2 - 3 hours. But the results are worth the time.
Dr. Mahmoud is good but the wait times are ridiculous! Once you get the photography done and the initial consultation, we wait about an hour and a half to two hours just to see the doctor! Then another hour to get the eye shot! My dad comes to Duke once a month, and the visit should only be an hour long but on average we are always in here for at least 4 hours!
He has no surgical skills, no knowledge, and seems more concern about status.Duke is all about the name but, they are below average. Don't waste your time going there, Tamer was educated in Africa so he lacks surgical skills, and very good with research; don't allow him to do surgery on you, you will go blind.
