Dr. Barakat is an excellent surgeon. He successfully repaired a horseshoe tear of my retina. He is wonderful with patients as he takes the time to thoroughly listen and explain treatment options and methods. I highly recommend him for anyone who needs retinal surgery.

I have been to 4 different eye doctors in 3 different states, regarding my macular degeneration. Without hesitation, I can attest that Dr. Mark Barakat is the best. His technique of giving the shots in the eyes is painless. He is the best!
