As an accomplished surgeon and researcher, Dr. Hashemi works with patients to determine the best course of care for optimal outcomes, even in the most complex cases. In treatment of neuro-ophthalmology patients, Dr. Hashemi takes the team approach and works closely with primary care physician, neurologist and neurosurgeons.
