Meet Dr. Batliwala
Shehzad Batliwala, D.O. was raised in the piney woods of Tyler, Texas, where he attended the University of Texas at Tyler and graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. During undergrad, he launched a tech company focused on repair and maintenance of smart devices, which today operates retail stores in East Texas under the brand of SmartPhone ER. He then attended University of North Texas Health Science Center for medical school, where he was elected into the Sigma Sigma Phi Honor Society. During medical school, he was able to marry his childhood fascination with outer space and interest in ophthalmology by earning an internship at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, researching visual impairment experienced by astronauts in zero gravity.
Dr. Batliwala completed his ophthalmology residency at Dean McGee Eye Institute in Oklahoma City. He then obtained further sub-specialty training in LASIK and presbyopia-correcting intraocular lens implants at ClearSight Vision Correction Center in Oklahoma City.
Dr. Batliwala thoroughly enjoys traveling and spending time with his beautiful and caring wife Rema, who is a pharmacist by profession. In his free time, he enjoys listening to engaging podcasts and audiobooks on business, leadership, and all things outer space.
Very courteous and professional. Treated me in a way that is top of the line. Made sure I understood everything they were doing. A really great experience.
