Intelligence Officer Gets Cataract Surgery

Cataract Graphic“As a former science and technology intelligence officer needing cataract surgery, I thoroughly researched specialists and interviewed a variety of patients to assess outcomes – short and long term – before entrusting my eyes to a surgeon. A few of the exalted names showed misplaced praise for political or tutorial skills (i.e. ‘Chief of Department,’ ‘Sr. Professor of Surgery’) rather than the crucial traits needed for a favorable result: dedicated, meticulous, doing…not teaching, and never promising what cannot be delivered. Reports of the finest experiences and outcomes, from patients and even physicians, kept bringing up the same name: Dr. Thomas E. Clinch in Chevy Chase, MD — and his professional, efficient staff. That decision was the right one, for the results were better than I ever hoped or imagined. When others had told me ‘nothing could be done,’ Dr. Clinch showed how very wrong they were.”
