Dr. Fawzi is an excellent compassionate physician. Following multiple, highly positive interactions with Dr. Fawzi in 2018 while paying out of pocket for care, I adjusted my insurance for 2019 to ensure that care in her practice is covered. I want to be clear, her experience and care during calendar 2018 is responsible for me now coming to Northwestern for all medical care, general and special.

*Dr. Fawzi is all star! She is the finest doctor that I have received care from, she is a wonderful human being. My eyes were very, very difficult. It was a scary situation for her and me. The results were miraculous in light of the issues, she is a great, world class surgeon. Northwestern is blessed to have her. She is also great leader for the residents and fellows.

I would like to commend Dr. Fawzi and her Fellow. Their soft skills were excellent, these included the ability to connect with me and explain things in very familiar language and terms. They showed concern but did not ratchet up my anxiety. Even though the facility was very busy I never felt like I was just a number. I would recommend Dr. Fawzi, her team, and Northwestern to everyone who needs eye care.
