Dr. Suhail Alam immediately diagnosed my husband with a retinal year and book emergency surgery with the Outpatient Surgery Center for that afternoon. The surgeon, Dr. Jack Sipperley performed the surgery that afternoon to save my husband’s eye. We are most grateful for the sense of urgency exhibited by both physicians to treat my husband immediately. We highly recommend the both for eye care. We are most grateful.

Dr. Alam came highly recommended for the procedure I had done. Prior to surgery, Dr Alam discussed what to expect and any anxiety I had disappeared. He has a calming bedside manner, listens to his patients and provides thorough answers. I would recommend Dr. Alam.

Dr. Alam explained that cataract surgery and glasses could resolve my vision problems without performing delicate surgery on my bilateral macular pucker. He was thorough and kind.

Dr. Alam is very, very professional. I trust his expertise in the field of retina knowledge. He is very quiet and well mannered. I tend to hesitate to ask any questions as I depend upon him to tell me what I need to know.

The doctor is very knowledgeable and very kind. Good medical support staff. I first came in September to the Flagstaff office. I was told I’d get a call to set up my next appointment at the Prescott office. I did have difficulty with the office staff. I needed to have an injection in my eye once a month. So I got a call but just missed it, to set up my next appointment for October. I called right back to accept it and left a message. I did not receive a single call back. I consequently called back once a week for the whole month in an attempt to get an appointment. I left a message every time. I never received a call back the whole month. I finally got a call and made an appointment for the month of November. The doctor was not happy that I missed October (through no fault of my own.) It’s worked out since then and there is now improvement in my eye due to the monthly injections. It was frustrating since I could’ve been better sooner! Once again, Dr Alam is a great doctor!

In 2012 Dr. Alam performed Macular Pucker Peel surgery on my left eye. I see him at least once a year for followup. My most recent procedure was Argon Laser on the same eye to correct declining vision, followed by injections in the eye to reduce swelling and distortion. Dr. Alam is so very competent, gentle, explains what he is doing, and why. I feel very safe in his care. I’ve heard complaints about wait times at BDPEC, and it seems They have made strides to streamline the process. Considering that dilation, prep for scans, etc. take time, I am grateful to have such competent care. These are, after all, my eyes. I know what it feels like to not see clearly, and I know the staff works as quickly and efficiently as possible without compromising care. I highly recommend Dr. Alam.
