Dr. Emad Nakkash, MD
I am a compassionate eye physician and surgeon. I have treated all kind of people -- regardless of their ability to pay. I came from a poor family -- whose assets were based on love and respect. Doctors need more than knowledge to achieve success. I am successful because I care and try to do my best. My patients love me and discuss with me more than medicine. Not to brag, but merely to share my experience with all: I have performed around 20,000 laser surgeries for diabetic eyes and other retinal problems; about 10,000 glaucoma laser surgeries; more than 10,000 procedures for eyelids; and close to 5,000 cataracts removal.

Care Philosophy

Good doctors treat their patients like they treat their families; these are the real doctors."
