How likely are you to recommend Dr. Al-Aswad?
I am so satisfied and blessed to have Dr Al-Aswad as a physician. She is a human being and a skilled patient physician. I have seen .her twice so far and had a very challenging laser procedure. The challenge was me because my eyes were very irritated due to chronic allergies. I’m also a “blinker” and have heavy eye lids. Nevertheless Dr Al-Aswad made it happen, calling for assistance to have someone gently hold my head in place. The entire staff is very professional and keep you informed of the entire process. The office is very clean and the waiting room is spacious. The environmental staff keep the restrooms very clean and well stocked .The diagnostic portion was awesome I’ve never had so many exams. The staff clean everything right in front of you . THIS IS THE PLACE ! Thank You NYU LANGONE EYE CENTER
