I had the best experience in getting help since this tragedy with the explosion first happened when visiting Dr. Christoforodis yesterday. Not only did I leave with long sought after answers (not always the ones I wanted but answers) I also left with my dignity and a feeling of hope in getting some help. I'd been shuffled around to at least 6 other specialists before now, got nothing but a runaround, fed false information, had the wrong painful treatments done for symptoms I didn't have until Dr. Christoforidis took the time and interest to examine my injury. Dr. Christoforidis not only examined my eyes but he listened to me, he cared and made it his mission to help me. In just one visit I got what 6 other specialists couldn't take the time to give me...Answers. This whole experience has been a nightmare from the beginning, this is the first time I feel someone has got my back to make me feel safe. Dr. Christoforodis is a brilliant medical doctor but more importantly he is a human being. I can't thank you all enough for giving me hope in my future for some relief from eye pain and maybe a slice of my old vision back. Thank you, again!
