Dr. Taher---is excellent in every aspect from his wonderful bedside manner to his surgical skills
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Driving I noticed a blurred area in one eye. I had a vein bleed in the back of my eye and was sent to Dr. Taher. He started treating me and after many months new veins have grown and taken over the blood flow to make my vision 20/30. While in his care my other other developed a hole in my macular ...he had to do surgery the next day to repair the hole and save my vision in that eye. Dr. Taher we could never have had better care, expertise or compassion with anyone else. THankyou. ??

Dr. Taher was highly recommended to me by a specialist who discovered that I had a small membrane growing over my retina. From the first visit, I was extremely comfortable with Dr. Taher and his staff. I never felt like he was in a hurry, he always took the time to explain completely my condition and options. He conducts himself very professionally. I would recommend him to anyone needing a macular or retina specialist

Dr. Taher was recommended to me by my ophthalmologist when he discovered I had a hemorrhage in the back of my eye. I have been seeing him for the last 8 months and it has been an amazing experience. I would recommend Dr. Taher to anyone who wants a doctor who cares and treats you with compassion. My husband and I go together and it is always a fun visit despite the treatments.

I have been fortunate to find Dr Taher when it was discovered that I had macular degeneration. I trust him in that his recommendations and treatment is spot on. His staff only adds to my total satisfaction of his practice. As I will be using him for a while to come, I can only say that I feel I am in very good hands.
