Dr. Siddiqui's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Siddiqui "Dr. Siddiqui and his wife grew up in Tulsa and returned to raise their family. He joined The Eye Institute as a Board Certified Comprehensive Ophthalmologist and Ophthalmic Surgeon. Dr. Siddiqui is very comfortable working with primary care physicians, optometrists, and other specialists in treating chronic conditions involving the eyes, including diabetes. He enjoys seeing a broad range of patients, from those with normal eye exams simply needing glasses prescription updates to those requiring urgent medical or surgical treatment. Dr. Siddiqui has performed a large volume of complex surgeries covering all areas of Ophthalmology, but has focused his surgical attention to cataract and eyelid surgery. Dr. Jamal Siddiqui, a graduate of Cascia Hall Preparatory School, obtained his Bachelor of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Dr. Siddiqui graduated with distinction (top 15% of class) from University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.

Following his transitional internship at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, IL, Dr. Siddiqui began his ophthalmology residency at the Brown University Warren Alpert School of Medicine in Providence, RI.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Siddiqui "Dr. Siddiqui is actively involved with cutting edge technologies. With respect to cataract surgery alone, there have been significant improvements in the past years making it more safe and effective. Dr. Siddiqui would be happy to explain the options of advanced technology intra-ocular lenses (Toric Astigmatism, Multifocal) to limit the need for glasses or use of lasers to decrease the amount of ultrasound energy expended when removing cataracts. Dr. Siddiqui is also active in clinical trials to monitor innovative treatments. Dr. Siddiqui is grateful for his experience as a medical student volunteering at the Bedlam Community Health Clinic. This much needed clinic specializes in treating the working uninsured. Because of Dr. Siddiqui's mission to treat all patients regardless of financial backgrounds, he founded the Bedlam Ophthalmology Division of the Bedlam clinic in 2013. This has allowed many patients to receive eye surgery or medical care at little or no cost"

Made a mistake on my eye during surgery. Had to go elsewhere to get it fix. Now I see great, but no thanks to Dr. Siddiqui. Do not recommend.
