“This is a real growth milestone that speaks to our dedication and longevity in providing specialized retinal vision care as well as care for diabetic eye diseases and eye surgery in our community," said Dr. Amjad Hammad, owner of the practice.
Since 2007, he has worked to create a dedicated retinal eye care center that incorporates the full range of retinal services. Whether patients need management of hereditary eye diseases, diagnosis and treatment of diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration or surgery, Saratoga Vitreo-Retinal Ophthalmology has the experience and skilled staff to provide personalized, compassionate and quality care.
"Patients visiting us for the first time routinely comment about the convenience and customer-service approach we offer,” Hammad said. “People are excited about the new dedicated eye surgery center, the New York Eye Surgery Center, opening soon. Safe, successful and convenient eye surgery is our top priority.”
Reaching the 6,000th-registered-patient milestone is rewarding for the team, he said. Moreover, it confirms that the practice’s direction, dedication and decisions have been recognized by the patients its staff serves.
“We say thank you to our community for the support,” Hammad said.
