Dr El-Gasim is a specialized retinal opthlmologist . Whenever you go to such a specialist you have to anticipate some wait time since retinal emergencies happen all the time and need to be treated promptly. For a first time routine retinal checkup, I was pleased with all aspects of this office. Very happy to have found such a top rated doctor.

Dr. El Gasim is the best retinal disease specialist I have ever seen. He is thorough, attentive and explains every issue clearly. His personality puts you at ease even in the most serious of cases. I had detached retina and he acted quickly to make sure I received immediate treatment. Love Barnet Delaney Perkins Eye Center doctors !!

Friendly, each visit he explaines my situation and shows me pictures of my current condition compared to that of previous visits. Always asks if I have any questions or concerns before he leaves.

The practice has a factory feel. Primary goal is to increase charges by adding unnecessary scans and injections. Seek care elsewhere.
