Raised and educated on the east coast, Dr. Rostami relocated to the Valley region of South Texas in 2017 to join the Gulf Coast Eye Institute team. But as a runner and a guy who likes to stay active and enjoy the outdoors, the move was a great fit! Dr. Rostami specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of retinal diseases and conditions. He is also very involved in research and has many original publications in his area of specialization. “It is gratifying helping people to see again so they can enjoy their lives,” said Dr. Rostami. Dr. Rostami graduated (a year early!) from Rutgers University before earning his medical degree from The Commonwealth Medical College in Pennsylvania and completing an internship in internal medicine and a residency in ophthalmology at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio. When he has free time, Dr. Rostami enjoys spending time with friends and heading to the gym or running outdoors. A resident of McAllen, Dr. Rostami sees patients at all Gulf Coast Eye Institute locations.
