My greatest joy is when my patients call me up the day after their LASIK surgery and say ‘I woke up this morning and can see everything perfectly for the first time!’ It can be a very emotional process for them, and I don’t take that lightly.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
Patients Medical, a leading integrative medical center in New York, is pleased to announce that Liviu Saimovici, MD will join the multi-specialty medical and surgical team. Dr. Saimovici, a board-certified Ophthalmologist and Comprehensive Vision Correction Specialist, will perform LASIK, PRK and other Laser Vision Correction services at Patients Medical – a service that will be offered for the first time at this center.
“We are excited to have Dr. Saimovici on staff,” explains Dr. Rashmi Gulati, Medical Director of Patients Medical. “Dr. Saimovici is a very dedicated and compassionate doctor. We offered holistic ophthalmology services before, but we will now be able to have the LASIK surgeries performed right here, in our office, with the added benefit of our pre- and post- operative integrative medical protocols that will help patients recover quickly and completely.”
Dr. Saimovici offers a wide variety of types of vision correction procedures and customizes his treatment plans for each patient, according to their medical condition, vision and personal goals. A true innovator in his field with a background in electrical engineering, he has developed special equipment for cataract surgery currently being manufactured by Bausch & Lomb.
“I know vision makes a huge difference in peoples’ lives every day. My patients are able to wake up and see - not just well, but perfectly. I know how they feel. I wore glasses for years, then 16 years ago I had corrective surgery on my own eyes. My life was changed,” muses Dr. Saimovici. “My greatest joy is when my patients call me up the day after their LASIK surgery and say ‘I woke up this morning and can see everything perfectly for the first time!’ It can be a very emotional process for them, and I don’t take that lightly.”
With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Saimovici has completed thousands of laser vision correction surgeries in the NYC area. He has a medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina, completed his residency in Ophthalmology at Geogetown University Medical Center and was appointed Chief Resident at several Washington, DC area hospitals. He is on staff and on faculty at the School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is also an attending physician at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital/Lenox Hill Hospital.
