Luckily there was no serious issue, and Dr Zaidi was thorough , careful and reassured me , with common sense advice. The medical assistant was helpful as well.

Since my original doctor I have had all my Retina exams done by since 1997 Dr. Arthur Allen retired, during your closure from COVID. I was able to meet my new doctor, and had an excellent exam, and my Retina’s are still free of diabetes, which is good. And I look forward to seeing him next June for my next yearly exam.

Dr. Zaidi was thorough and upbeat, if rushed. He did not explain what he saw except to say that things looked good. I had to ask for more details. He is very high energy, and moves very fast, which gave me the sensation that he was rushing through my appointment. That said, he is friendly and does inspire confidence when answering questions.
