      Although I am sure he must be knowledgeable, I found him condescending and non-communicative. They didn't inform me with what they were doing when they were going to dilate my eyes. I had no idea what it would do. Kept asking if I had an auto immune disease with no explanation. Proceeded to tell me he was ordering a "pill" that I needed to take for a month. No explanation of what it was till I asked and then he said it was an antiobiotic but no infection. Hmmm. Would love a dialogue in a visit.

      Dr. Abdelghani and his staff are wonderful. Very professional and caring. They all took time to answer any and all questions about my procedures. Felt very comfortable in Dr. Abdelghani's care.
      in Hockley TX |
      He has been taking care of me for a year. I have age related macular degeneration. He was able to correct a cataract surgery where the lens had fallen into my eye. Very caring,knowlegeable and skillfull. I am more than satified with the care i have received. I would trust him with anything regarding my eyes !
      in Conroe, TX |
      This wonderful doctor makes having macula degeneration so much easier with which to cope. His staff is friendly and my visits are always pleasant and almost painless.
      in Conroe, TX |
      Dr. Abdelghani is extremely caring with his patients. We are encouraged to ask questions and he's more than willing to answer them. His interest in the field of Macular Degeneration is amazing, and he is constantly improving his knowledge in that area. I would highly recommend him to everyone.
      I would not recommend the doctor to family and friends. The office visit was satisfactory. But responsiveness to my concern regarding reaction to recommended supplement was poor. Doctor's office did not respond to concern for four days. After 4 days doctor's office responded by saying the doctor does not respond to phone calls or emails. I have decided to change the doctor after the first visit.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
