About Me:

My clinical interest is in the improvement of my patients' lives through personalized compassionate care, with an emphasis on preservation and restoration of vision and eye health. I fulfill this interest through the comprehensive management of a wide variety of eye-related health conditions. These conditions range from highly acute issues like ophthalmic trauma, angle closure, and ocular inflammation, through more chronic diseases like diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. I also enjoy seeing healthy eyes, where I have the opportunity to educate my patients on how to maintain excellent eye health. One of my favorite things to do for my patients is cataract surgery. Cataract surgery can safely and effectively restore sight to an otherwise visually-disabled eye. Even better, with only a slight modification in technique and instrumentation, I can take cataract surgery to developing countries and help tackle one of the worlds leading causes of curable blindness.

Education:
Residency: Casey Eye Institute
Internship: Legacy Health
Undergraduate: University of Washington
Year I Started Practice: 2013
Hospitals Served: Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center

Dr. Acohido is a great doctor. His demeaner is kind, caring and sweet, especially to my [age removed] year old mom! He made sure she understood his diagnosis and what to do. I would recommend him to everyone. In fact, I need a new eye doctor and will make my own appointment with him soon.

I am a new patient from out of state and referred to Dr. Acohido gave me a very thorough eye exam to rule out sarcoidosis. He was extremely knowledgeable and efficient and most importantly made me feel very comfortable.

The doctor is excellent. The receptionist was unable to print out my prescription, and could not fax without printing first. The eye technician was professional but cold, and perhaps in a bad mood. The nurse was badgering the doctor to see other patients, cut my visit short, and was getting in the way of the doctor answering my questions. Despite the nurse's agitated and angry behavior, the doctor was poised, caring and helpful.

Another patient waiting to see the doctor as I was, was on her cell phone for 20 minutes talking loudly. She wore a mask but the waiting is very small so I was uneasy because of Covid. No cell phones should be used in waiting rooms.especially for long conversations.

I was taken into the exam room for tests, and then my eyes were dilated. More than 40 minutes went by and no one came to see me. I had to use the restroom and could not find ANYONE in the clinic a few minutes later the doctor, staff member and patient came out of another exam room. They said they were busy and it was the end of the day - but NOT a good experience for me.

Door was locked when I arrived I had to knock even though the receptionist was within view. No apology or greeting when she came to the door.

The technician was apparently not comfortable dealing with me and the issue I raised about my previous visit, which included an eye exam that resulted in an unuseable prescription, costing me an additional $80 to have the lenses redone. I was not looking to place blame but just trying to understand what went wrong. She seemed defensive then almost antagonistic and I did not receive a clear answer. Dr Acohido was sympathetic but similarly unwilling or unable to address the issue directly.
