Dr. Abdelghani was good when he saw me. The problem was . . . when. I work and always scheduled appointments at the earliest time, usually 8 a.m. I was never seen before 9 a.m. The last time I visited him, his staff saw me and administered proparacaine drops before 8. Dr. Abdelghani did not see me until 9:17. The drops had worn off. The pressure test hurt. I said so and was told I was rude. I will not see him again.

I explained my sudden urgency to the front desk person. With no further questions asked she worked me in for that afternoon. Dr. A. explained my condition well, responded to my questions without hurry and got my recovery underway. The staff is well trained, efficient and kind.

The staff is always courteous and friendly. I trust the Dr. I called this AM due to an immediate need to see the doctor. I was given an appointment this morning. I appreciate them working me in. Three months prior to this date, I had given a review that said I was not happy with the response on a question to the doctor. I MISTAKENLY thought the information given did not come from the doctor. Upon seeing the doctor today he set me straight on that so I am setting the record STRAIGHT.

I have been going to this dr. for years and have been mostly pleased except for not returning phone calls to him when I need an important refill and questions about my eye to see if I need to come in. The wait time most of the time is 1 hr until i see the dr. Not good.

Would not recommend this doctor to anyone! he was very rude, and I came in four times to have injection treatment for a rare eye disease, only to come in and have eyes dilated , which is excruciating and agonizing for me, then have him come in and tell me he can not do the procedure because the insurance company had not paid him. Left me sitting in the waiting room for what seemed like hours before telling me this! My opinion is he is very unethical and put me through unnecessary pain and agony

Dr Abdelghani is an excellent surgeon and has improved my eyesight to 20/20 without pain. His staff is reliably professional. Read my previous review where I marked the wrong number of stars. This group is at least a FIVE STAR.

The staff at TWRC are absolutely wonderful! All of the ladies are friendly and polite. Dr. Abdelghani is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and he has a wonderful "bedside" manner. I was really panicked when I went in, and even though my issues were serious, he put me completely at ease. I have every confidence in everyone at this office, and I will (and have) recommend them to anyone I know who is in need of a great retinal specialist.

Great doctor took his time and it is because of him that I am doing so much better now. He found out a tumor in the brain where all the other doctors I have been to did not suspect anything wrong with brain. He is awesome.

Dr. has ZERO bedside manner. I would definitely NOT recommend him to anyone who is easily traumatized or who expects their doctor to explain their procedures without becoming frustrated
