Care Philosophy

As an Ophthalmologist, I simply enjoy improving my patient's quality of life, whether by restoring blurry vision through cataract surgery, or simply prescribing glasses to help someone see more clearly. I am humbled by my patients trust in me and thank them for the opportunity that they allow me in contributing to their well-being.

Patient Comments (1)
in Brooklyn, NY |
The office environment was comfortable, the waiting room has large windows and it was quiet. All of the staff was friendly and professional. Dr Sleem was knowledgeable, informative and also friendly. I did at least six different eye tests in around an hour, total time, including waiting for the pupil dilation solution to take effect. Dr Sleem took time to explain that type 2 diabetes can cause eye damage, that keeping my A1C under control is an important factor for long term eye heath.
