I NEEDED TO HAVE TWO CATARACT I needed to have two cataracts removed and was apprehensive about some one touching my eyes. Fortunately, my primary care doctor recommended Dr. Salim. Throughout the entire process, I was comfortable and well taken care of byDr. Salim and all of the people she works with. Both cataracts were removed and I couldn't be more pleased with the care and results from the surgery.
