Dr. Mirza is working within the confines of the health insurance provisions and the reality of patient care, as all physicians are. Her adroit technique coupled with her friendliness makes me feel comfortable as a patient. Having eye injections is unnerving and the practice manages this aspect of care quite well. My vision has improved dramatically since last September when I began treatment. The psychological value of having my sight restored is significant.
