Excellent caring Dr. and staff.
The staff were very efficient and caring. Made feel relaxed as I was a bit stressed. They explained all the tests so I could easily understand what was happening. Dr. Alam spent time explaining my diagnosis and answered all my questions before starting the procedure. Can not say enough good things about Dr. Alam and staff.

A Surgeon Upon Whom All Surgeons Should Measure
Dr Alam performed my first surgery to repair retina that had detached in four places. Yesterday he performed surgery to remove the silicone oil bubble used to hold the repairs in place. I was prepared for three weeks of blurry vision in that eye until it healed, but today my vision is already remarkably good ! What other surgeon is that proficient, organized, and caring enough to visit me in the postoperative room before I left ? I was not certain I would ever get vision back in that eye so I consider this a miracle. Why would anyone want a surgeon other than Dr Alam work on their retina ?

Over booking appointments and not allowing the doctor enough time to really deal with patients is a diservice to everyone. Waiting for 2 to 3 hrs. To be seen is ridiculous. Everyone in the waiting area said the same...
