This was our first visit/appointment and are quite impressed with how well everything went. It is hard to put yourself at ease when dealing with compromised vision due to glaucoma and cataracts. Dr Shareef is quite clear about the options available to help to maintain the best level of vision possible. Although he is a fast talker and a little hard to follow along he is patient and is listening to any questions we had and was very helpful so we are completely informed.
