We asked Dr. Keswani to recall her most memorable patient?
“My best memory came from taking care of a teenage boy who came in with excruciating eye pain in one eye. This set off an alarm in me that there was much more to it. After many questions and testing, I realized this young man had ulcerative colitis. This was confirmed by his doctor. I received flowers from his mom, a nurse who said, ” in no way would we have expected an eye doctor to detect such an important medical problem, thanks to you my boy is feeling better and on his way to a healthier life, and by the way, his eye feels much better.”
