Dr. Brad Kligman, MD

Refractive Surgeon, Ophthalmologist, Cornea & External Diseases Specialist

Professional statement

Dr. Brad Kligman joins North Shore Eye Care as a fellowship-trained cornea and refractive surgery specialist. He was born and raised on Long Island and is excited to be returning home to practice in his community. Dr. Kligman earned his M.D. at NYU School of Medicine and it was while observing cataract surgery in his third year that he realized the restoration of sight through intricate and precise microsurgery was the career that he wanted to pursue. Following medical school, Dr. Kligman completed a transitional year internship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan. He then began his ophthalmology residency at the Edward S. Harkness Eye Institute of Columbia University Medical Center where he served as Chief Resident in his final year. During residency, he became interested in cornea surgery, due to the rapidly evolving technology and surgical techniques that would allow him to restore sight to the blind and visually impaired. This led him to pursue a fellowship in cornea, external disease and refractive surgery at the world-renowned Cole Eye Institute of Cleveland Clinic. There he learned to perform the most advanced cornea transplant techniques and gained extensive experience with the most cutting edge technology used in laser refractive surgery. He looks forward to bringing these skills and techniques back to his community on Long Island. Throughout his training, Dr. Kligman has been very involved in research, publishing over 20 peer-reviewed articles, textbook chapters and abstracts. He was awarded Best Paper of Session at the 2016 annual meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons and his work was featured in the Best of ASCRS 2016 Session.

When you see the doctor he is ok but the wait time is horrendous. Got here 15 minutes before the appt called in on time did the pre screen in one room then waited for 2 hours before being seen. Thenanother 30 minutes after drops were put in and have weared off. Very frustrated I have a job and this threw a wrench in my whole day.

Dr. Kligman is professional, caring, and attentive. I scheduled my consultation with him based on reviews, and they hold true. Dr. Kligman deserves his 5-star reviews. During the consultation, he was thorough and knowledgable. He answeredmy questions regarding the procedure and confirmed that everything would be great. During the procedure, he was reassuring and comforting. I am currently recommending him to my friends who are considering LASIK!

Great doctor. It's very hard to find good doctors these says because there are so many, almost like trying to find a good lawyer or body shop. I'm a current student doctor in training so I am even more critical ofdoctors. Dr Kligman was very good. Super thorough. He checked my eyes once then double checked them again. Even took the time to take photos and email them to me. He was very personable and had great bed side manner. Only thing that sucked was the wait time ~ 30 minutes. Not his fault, more so the office. I would definitely recommend him to anyone though regardless of that.

From beginning to end, it was nothing short of courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. The receptionists were friendly and pleasant, the assistants were equally so, and Dr. Kligman had a nice blend of great bedside manner and abilityto inform with tones which didn't cause alarm. I even went ahead and scheduled next year's visit! Lol
