Welcome to Dr. Michael Kazim's practice. Dr. Kazim has been in practice for over 20 years. Our Center specializes in the field of Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery and has gained an international reputation for the successful treatment of the most challenging cases of Orbital Tumors, and Thyroid Eye Disease.
Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center is recognized as one of the top hospitals in the U.S. Our affiliation with Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian means we can also provide the best possible care to young patients with oculoplastic and orbital diseases.
Our academic setting provides patients with access to and the benefits from both clinical and basic science research. Dr Kazim is a member of the International Orbit Society an organization devoted to the treatment of complex orbital diseases. Its 25 members share cutting edge information and conduct multicenter investigations. Dr Kazim is also President of the International Thyroid Eye Disease Society which conducts clinical research in the field of Thyroid Eye Disease. Patients may have the opportunity to participate in these clinical studies.
Treating patients, not just the disease, is what you excel at, and your patients appreciate the kindness you have dispensed along with your medical care.
This award is based on reviews written by hundreds of thousands of patients. While physicians generally receive positive feedback from their patients, only a select few receive praise about the compassion that accompanied their care. In fact, of the nation's 870,000 active physicians, only 3% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2012.
Dr Kazim is responsible for the training of residents in the Department of Ophthalmology at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. There are regularly residents who visit for a period of 1-3 months from both US and Foreign residency programs. In addition, Dr Kazim trains both US and International Fellows in the subspecialty of Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery, a highly competitive fellowship program.
