in North Pito |
He may be a good surgeon, but has no regard for your time. Was late arriving for my scheduled surgery, and the hospital staff said he's always late. His office staff tried to shake me down for a $1500.00 deposit, as they failed to procure prior authorization for the surgery, a detached retina, yet somehow I was able to call my ins.co, and the auth was there, I had to hand the phone to her....waited over an hour to be seen for my post op appointment. Really unhappy with his staff.

I highly recommend Dr. Toufic Melki. He is an excellent ophthalmologist & retina specialist. In the past 4 years, I have had 2 detached retina surgeries and 1 macular pucker surgery. I would have gone blind without his care. All were done on an emergency basis with no appointment. He explained everything in detail and went beyond the norms of a doctor ( calling on the weekend to check on me). In addition to his professionalism, he is very personable and easy to talk to and understand.
