Patient Comments (1)
in San Jose, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Engelman by another eye physician for possible glaucoma sympton. Dr. Engelman confirmed and has been treating my glaucoma for a year and my condition has stabilized. In my recent annual exam, Dr. E diagnosed that I have developed a new condition of retina tear and referred me to a retina eye doctor. They were able to get me in the next day and perform a laser procedure. Dr. E is very thorough and patient with his patients. He is truly excellent.
