Patient Comments (2)
in Woburn, MA |
In October of 2016, I suffered a slightly torn retina following a June cataract surgery. When the serious of my condition was revealed by my optometrist, he called Dr. Hussein for me. The office told me to come over immediately and would stay open if necessary. Dr. Hussein performed emergency laser surgery to seal the tear before it got any worse. The surgery was a complete success.

Dr. Husain knows her stuff and seems to be conservative in her approach. There were two possible treatments for my detached retina. She chose the less invasive scleral buckle and it has worked really well. The experience was almost exactly as she described it would be, so there were no surprises. The only negative is that follow-up appointments can only be scheduled for Friday mornings, so finding mutually agreeable times is not convenient.
