Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Khuddus and her staff are excellent! She has treated by child since he was 1 (he is 6 now). My child has some other issues, and she took those into consideration when it came to surgery and the appropriate time for it. I would not trust anyone but her when it comes to eyes!
