I have seen top experts from around North America and Dr. Barsam is the best. Not only because he is brilliant, but he has a heart of gold and genuinely cares about his patients. He is the only person I truly felt good with knowing he has my back to help me solve the mysteries of my eye sight.

What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?
