Patient Comments (4)
in North Hollywood, CA |
I suffer from "chronic dry eye syndrome". When I came to Dr. Hakim about 3 years ago now, I was medically and emotionally a mess because of this condition. ( Never had any illness in my life before.) No, it's not life threatening, but, it is a very difficult, and miserable condition at times. Dr Hakim's expertise and genuine empathy greatly improved me physically, as well as, emotionally with my eyes. I feel so blessed to have found her. Highly knowledgeable & kind. Thank you Dr. H.

She has an amazing bedside manner and is truly exceptional in eye surgery. She did stye surgery for me and did a beautiful job. She also diagnosed my mother with glaucoma and she has great vision thanks to her care for over a decade.

She has an amazing bedside manner and is a brilliant doctor. She diagnosed me with a condition that three other doctors could not diagnose. I love her and I am grateful I found her. She is the whole package.
