He works in a well-appointed office and all paperwork was handled efficiently and friendly at the front desk and I was actually seen within 5 minutes of my appointment time. Dr. Hammad explained the laser surgery in terms that were easy to understand. It was a successful procedure. This office was very accommodating in providing me with an appointment immediately on request of my ophthalmologist. I would recommend this doctor to anyone.
