I have total confidence and respect for Dr McLeod and his staff.

Dr. McLeod told me to take antibiotic and steroid eyedrops 4 times/day but I didn't realize I needed to take 2 other meds after my surgery and the after-surgery packet was very long and confusing for someone recovering from eye surgery. The recovery nurse told my husband to read the highlighted items but only one med was highlighted. It would help to have a simple concise packet that only listed the eye surgery meds since I already know about my regular meds and there were 7 duplicate meds listed including some eye meds because of having a repeat corneal transplant within a few weeks.

Best specialist ever!

Dr. McLeod listens. He is also conservative about recommendations for any further treatment. I am not sure if that is his nature (I would guess it is) or the fact that he realizes I have had very bad experiences and do not wish to have anything done to my eyes that isn't absolutely necessary or that doesn't carry ANY significant risk. He definitely honors that. For instance I have had a cataract for years but he didn't try to encourage me to have it removed because for me it would be a risk.

Dr. Stephen McLeod is the best ophthalmologist I have ever been treated by in the [number redacted] years of my San Francisco residence.

Dr. McLeod is head of the department. I have been a patient for years. Your questions do not seem relavent. He has been there for meand helped me through so many difficult situations. How lucky that UCAF has him as head of the department
