How likely are you to recommend Dr. Elchahal?

(Select your rating)
One evening I was experiencing some "flashing light" out of my peripheral vision. I immediately went to "Google University" to see what it might be. The internet said it can be caused by many things, other than your eye's. Later on I noticed a "large" floater which narrowed the issue down to my eye. I was concerned that it may be a detached retina so the next morning I called Houston Eye Associates, which is where my wife goes for eye care. They were able to find a location near my job that could see me that morning. Dr. Samih Elchahal listened to my symptoms and examined my eyes. He was very thorough and knowledgeable and he could tell I had both Lasik and a PRK treatment previously from just examining my eyes. He told me my retina was fine but wanted an ultrasound of the eye. The front desk was able to schedule it for the same day at their main location on Gramercy St. I arrived 30 minutes early in case there was paperwork involved and they ushered me right in for the ultrasound.
