Dr. Medford has performed surgery on my 2 cataracts. I have had a wonderful response, and am grateful for the marvelous vision I now have. I am a Physician, and especially appreciate the excellence of Dr. Medford. He has a fine staff, It is always pleasant to go to his office. Thank you, Dr. Medford
I know, it's your eyes. I was, like most people, very apprehensive about anybody poking around in my eyes. But my cataracts were starting to interfere with my day to day activities and I finally realized I had to do something about it. When I first saw Dr. Medford he immediately put me at ease. I admitted that I was very squeamish about my eyes, and his reply was "well, luckily, I'm not!" He went on to explain to me exactly what the procedure involved, and the benefits of the Femto laser (which I opted for). The results were more than I could have hoped for. The lens for one eye was for distance, and the lens for my second eye was for reading (tuned to about arms length). Now, for the most part, don't wear any glasses. I can do computer work, read the newspaper, my cell phone, etc. The exception is when I need to read very, very small print, at which point I can put on some glasses. Good news is that I don't need the glasses very often, but when I do, I can read print that I couldn't read with my glasses before! The only way to describe it is that it's "crystal clear". I'm so happy that I finally got the courage to get this done. After the procedure I realized it really was no big deal. I didn't feel anything during the procedure, and Dr. Medford and all the folks at the Ridgedale Surgery Center were caring, friendly, and made my short stay very comfortable. Dr. Medford's office staff were, likewise, friendly and easy to work with. Kelli, the surgical coordinator, was exceptional in helping me get a surgery date that would fit into my hectic schedule. I would enthusiastically recommend Dr. Medford to anybody who needs eye care.
I am extremely pleased with my experience with Dr. Medford and his staff. I had my cataracts removed. Based on his recommendation, I chose the RESTOR multifocal IOL lens. It was the right decision for me. I can read and do needlepoint with clear vision, and my distance vision has improved greatly. Dr. Medford and his staff are friendly, professional, and put me at ease.
I've recently had both eyes operated on for removal of cataracts. I had a referral from my optometrist, but did not find positive reviews for that ophthalmologist. I searched for someone with better reviews and came upon Dr. Medford (Affiliated Eye Surgeons 95 Madison Ave, Ste 400 Morristown, NJ 07960). The wait time for the original examination was a couple of months, which indicates how much of this type of work his organization does. Once in, the actual appointments for the operations were very reasonable, and the waits at the office were prompt. The staff was courteous and very personable. Dr. Medford was great. He explained everything that was going to happen, and how the process worked; he really took all the time I needed and explained everything in layman's terms. The operations went smoothly and the results were exactly as described - in my terms, the results were life changing. For the first time since I was 12 years old (53 years ago) I could see distance without glasses! I do need reading glasses (needed bifocals before) and again, Dr. Medford's recommendation for transitional lenses worked out perfectly. Using the computer is better than ever, sight wise. I would recommend him to friends and relatives in a heartbeat (already have).
My husband and I are still amazed at how easy our cataract surgeries were - easy on a number of levels: no apprehension, no pain and smooth recoveries. Our doctor - David Medford - did an outstanding job on us. HIs staff is more than able and the Ridgedale Surgery Center was professional and kind. Our recoveries were rapid with no downtime and the improvement in our vision is remarkable.
Dr. Medford and his colleague saved my vision. Thanks to Dr. Medford's diagnostic and surgical skills I have my vision today. He is thorough and compassionate, taking the time to explain my medical situation carefully, and in detail. Thank you Dr. Medford.
Dr. Medford did Cataract surgeries on my both eyes recently. I am very happy with the results. He did wonderful jobs. He is very patient with my questions.
As the hit song of the '70's says, "I Can See Clearly Now!" After double cataract surgery, it's a joy to be able to drive with no glasses at all. Glasses needed only for reading. God bless your gift of healing.
When I first heard that I needed cataract surgery I never for one minute became anxious about the procedure. Having been a patient of Dr. Medford's for several years, I already knew I would get quality care - and that is just what I got. His thorough explanation of the procedure was exactly what I expected. The office staff was reassuring and answered any last minute questions to my satisfaction. Those who assisted with the procedure were most professional, caring, and helpful. It is my pleasure to recommend Dr. Medford to anyone who is looking for quality eye care. You will not be disappointed.
Itâs been about a month since my cataract surgery and itâs wonderful to have the vision in my right eye back. I waited a while to submit a review just to be sure there were no complications and Iâm happy to say there werenât. The operation went off without a hitch; I couldnât believe how quick and easy it was. Prior to the operation Dr. Medford took the time to explain the entire process and answer all of my questions. My post-operative visits were also informative and unhurried, and the staff at the Morristown office was courteous and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Medford to anyone requiring cataract surgery or eye care in general. They are busy there so plan ahead.
I would recommend Dr. Medford to anyone. He did a great job removing my cataracts, explaining everything, and answering my questions.
Excellent level of detail. Superior medical outcome. Showed excellent dedication to answering all of my questions.
From the day Dr. Medford told me that I had a cataract in my left eye that needed removal until today, my journey has been smooth and seamless. Each step was explained by Dr. Medford or a member of his staff. Questions I had were never brushed aside. As I approached the surgery I knew I had been well prepared. The surgery itself was quick and painless. I went into the holding area to be prepped at 7:15a.m. and was home by 9 a.m.! Nothing was rushed, I was evaluated carefully and frequently. My home care of eye drops and the eye shield at night was simple to follow. Subsequent visits to Dr. Medford showed my progress as my eye recovered. The clarity of vision I now have in my left eye is amazing!! Thank yous to Dr. Medford, his office staff and the staff at the surgery center!!
I thank Dr. Medford for successful cataract surgeries on both eyes....his professional expertise is well known in the area and all other patients I met, myself included had one common conclusion that he is a great eye surgeon and positive results are commonplace in his practice. All had praises and appreciation for what he does for his patients and his courteous and friendly staff who were reassuring and comforting patients like me who had anxieties before my surgery. Dr. Medford spent time to explain about the procedure and the available options to choose from . His caring attitude made me feel that I was in good hands and I felt that I could trust him as my surgeon of choice. Thank you so much Dr. Medford....you are a definite asset to your profession and I will highly recommend you to others anytime I get a chance to do so. Best wishes for you continued business and personal success!!!
I have been seeing Dr. Medford for approximately six years. During that time he has monitored my glaucoma and taken proactive steps to slow its progress. Dr. Medford always takes sufficient time to explain in lay terms the results of tests he has administered, current eye condition and what you, as the patient, can do to best preserve your eyesight. In the past few weeks Dr. Medford performed cataract removal surgery via laser on both of my eyes. Pre/post operation procedures were clearly outlined and his calm manner, as well as that of his staff, did much to allay my fear. I'm happy to report that both surgeries were a success! Thank you, Dr. Medford.
I have had a very Long-Standing, Happy Relationship with Dr. Medford. Twenty years ago, at age 44, I visited Dr. Medford for the first time for a routine eye check-up. He informed me that I had cataracts in both eyes. I was surprised to have cataracts at such a young age, but knew I had a strong family history in that regard:'both of my parent had cataracts. Dr. Medford performed surgery on both eyes and my life changed for the better immediately: no more contacts, and no more distance glasses. I need reading glasses, and my distant vision remains at 20/20 20 years later. My astigmatism has diminished and eyes eyes are very healthy! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. MEDFORD. He is a consummate professional and an outstanding doctor!
Procedure was quick, and painless. Results: Amazing vision! It was a Wizard of Oz Moment--from gray to vivid color! From blurry vision to sharp! Dr. Medford explained the procedure, had comfortable bedside manner and caring follow-up.
Dr medford's explanation of diagnosis and needed procedure put me at ease and I felt calm and confident looking forward to it. The follow up was very satisfactory!
I have been a patient of Dr. Medford since the mid 1990's and have always and continue to appreciate his clear explanation of all medical conditions, which includes successful cataract surgery on both eyes, most recently in March, 2015. I knew exactly what to expect before and after the surgery and had no complications at all, thanks to Dr. Medford. He is always willing to answer any questions I might have and I highly recommend him to all my relatives and friends.
The capsulotomy was most interesting. It over very quickly. It took longer for me to position myself on the chin and forehead straps than for the capsulotomy. My vision was improved to excellent while I was blinking away tears from the YAG illumination.
It was a very good experience. I was nervous but Dr Medford was great. He took time to explain. Staff was also great. Everything went smooth the day if surgery. It was painless and i felt relaxed.
Everything went well and successfully. I had no negative aftereffects. Having monovision implants has made it easier to read as well as see distances, without needing glasses except for very detailed work.
A Class act Dr. Medford and his staff. Thank you again Dr. Medford, my eye sight improve 100%. You made a friend for life. I will highly recommend you and your staff. A job well done.
There is no question that Dr Medford is the only one I would trust with my eyes. During my surgery I was totally relaxed and actually found the procedure interesting. My preparation immediately prior to surgery was outstanding and enabled me to follow the steps as they occurred. The surgical center was clean and everyone was professional and reassuring, a remarkable experience.
Dr. Medford restored my eyesight, a gifted and incredible eye surgeon who sets the standard for his profession, great support staff as well. I would and have recommended Dr Medford to my friends without any reservations.
Upon recommendation of the optometrist who found that I had cataracts after my most recent eye exam, I sought the advice of Dr. Medford regarding cataract surgery. He examined my eyes and confirmed the presence of cataracts. After the exam, he told me, "I believe that while you do have cataracts in both eyes, your quality of visual function is not compromised. As such I do not believe it's best to recommend surgery at this time." I appreciate Dr. Medford's forthrightness with me about the lack of need for surgery at this time. On a periodic basis I will check with Dr. Medford as to the progression of the cataracts. When surgery is required, Dr. Medford will be my ophthalmologist/surgeon of choice.
I drive between 40 to 60 miles a day in local traffic, five days a week. Staying alert and having good vision is a must. Before cataract surgery, the driving part was making me edgy and less confident. . Now, with 20/20 vision, driving each day( and at night) is a snap snap.
would go to him again, very personable and would recommend him to others. the staff is great and very friendly and helpfull
Dr. Medford knew immediately, when others did not, why my vision had declined so much in a year's time and managed my resultant cataract surgery exquisitely. I was informed, educated and reassured every step of the way: diagnosis, pre-op, and post-op. Most notably, the day of surgery went very well. Everything was state of the art, organized and accommodating. Dr. Medford appeared promptly to greet me as I was being prepared for the procedure. His signature positive attitude, professionalism and consultative nature was at work reassuring me right up until the moment the procedure started and until the moment the procedure concluded. I am very grateful to Dr. Medford and his staff for restoring my vision with such grace and expertise and I would without question, recommend Dr. Medford to anyone looking for top rate eye care.
I've nothing but positive comments to share regarding Dr. Medford, and his staff. The cataract surgery he performed was an astounding success, allowing me to be free of glasses and contact lenses for the first time in 55 years. Beyond his surgical ability (obviously, other surgeons are equally as adept as Dr. Medford), a number of factors made the experience a positive one and one that I recommend. Perhaps the most important of which was that Dr. Medford provided clinical information in a clear, concise and understandable manner. Moreover, I never had the feeling that he was in a rush; the visits were both informative and relaxed. His staff is also very efficient and exceedingly friendly - and this extends to the staff at the surgical center. I thus have the highest regard for Dr. Medford and recommend him without exception.
Super procedure Greatly increased clarity contrasts.
The entire experience was above my expectations.The office staff and the doctor were professional and very satisfactory. I would recommend Dr. Medford to my friends.
Dr. Medford inplanted a RESTOR multifocal lens in each eye four years ago. After the operation my near and far vision was improved to where eyeglasses have not been required. For example, I have had no difficulty in doing tax preparation work for my clients the last four tax seasons. The surgery exceeded my expectations.
WOW! Dr. Medford is AMAZING! I donât know why I put off having cataract surgery so long. Just 1 day later, I saw the world thru the clear film patch better than I have with my naked eye for years. Itâs like looking through a microscope at all the detail. No pain, quick recovery - Dr. Medford is a miracle worker and I canât wait to get my other eye back to working order soon. No more waiting for the right time, as the right time to see is now. Just WOW. Thanks again, Dr. Medford,
I am writing this review because I would like to express my satisfaction with Dr. Medford and all of his staff. I will start by saying I also work in the medical field and I am very much a sceptic, I was very scared to get surgery on my eyes, but after all is said and done I have nothing but great things to say. Dr. Medford is amazing, the staff is caring and professional, and the best part of it all, the surgery that Dr. Medford preformed was a total success and my sight is better then ever. I would truly recommend this wonderful team to any one.
Recently I had cataract surgery on my eyes done by Dr David Medford. An amazing experience! Sitting in my kitchen and gazing out at snowflakes falling was an emotional happening to just be able to see them!! May God bless him for the perfect job!
I have been a long time patient of Dr. Medford and have always considered him to be a very good doctor but it wasnât until I started to have some age-related eye problems, a macular pucker and cataracts, that I really came to appreciate what a patient, caring and skilled doctor he is. I am very apprehensive when it comes to medical procedures and was terrified of having any eye surgery. I spoke to Dr. Medford about my concerns and fears. He listened patiently, was very understanding, addressed my fears and did not try to minimize what I was feeling. His calm, reassuring manner helped me greatly. He recently performed the second cataract surgery on me and I am thrilled with the result. It is like seeing in HD. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family or friends.
I am a long time volunteer driver for the Township Dial-A-Ride service. My experience is that eye doctors have the worst record for being on time. I purposely get an early appointment to minimize wait time. Dr Medford was always prompt. Even my 2 mid-day eye surgeries were on time. On the second one I was finished before it was scheduled to start.
I have been a patient of dr. Medford for about 25 years. In that time, he has been caring, accurate in his diagnosis of my eye conditions, and cautious in his approach. I would, and have, recommended him to family and friends. I have always had great trust in his abilities. To that end, I drive over 700 miles round trip for an appointment or check-up with him, as I do not live in the immediate area of his offices. I believe this says an enormous amount about my trust in him. His recent cataract surgery on my eyes has greatly improved my quality of life. My sight was deteriorating at an alarming rate, but he has fixed all of that. I could not ask for more.
My husband and I own a pool business. In 1998, I accidently got an alkalinity adjusting chemical in my eye. I went to the local eye doctor and he washed out my eye using all the eye wash he had. He put a numbing medication in my eye and sent me to the emergency room. This is where I met Dr. Medford. His kindness and patience with me was so soothing. His knowledge and professionalism is unsurpassed. I was very close to loosing the sight in that eye. His approach to treating my eye was very settling to me in my panic state. He literally saved my eye. Last winter I had cataract surgery in both eyes. My eye sight is as good as it was when I was a child. Again, his patience and knowledge put me totally at ease. Dr. Medford explained every step that was to be taken and talked me though the entire procedure before I made my decision. Once again Dr. Medford saved my eyesight. For me, Dr. Medford is A1.
Dr Medford was excellent, restored my vision to 20/20 post surgery of my right eye.
I'm an RN who has extremely high expectations (or hopes) for the doctors I choose. I also tend to read in detail about any condition I am being seen for. I usually have detailed/perhaps challenging high level questions and tend to also need reassurance. Dr. Medford has been an excellent doctor in every way. He is so very caring and patient, and handles every question I throw at him with expertise and ease. This is a doctor you can put your trust in 100%. I found him by chance when he was covering for my prior eye doctor and I needed an emergency visit for a horrible eye infection (EKC) which was actually acquired at that other doctor. I was so stressed, uncomfortable, and scared. He took over and put me at ease; it was a huge relief. He is the best doctor I have ever encountered and I have also switched my kids over to his care.
Dr. Medford is a wonderful Eye Dr. who listens to his patients. I had a running eye for a very long time and he listened to my problem and suggested the proper treatment was to clean out my tear duct to stop the running. He did a wonderful job and I no longer have my running eye. He also did a wonderful job on cataract surgery for both eyes. He is a very fine human being besides. He really cares for his patients. I am always very happy to recommend him to my friends and relatives.
Iâve been a patient of Dr. Medfordâs since 1990. In 2003 he performed Lasik surgery on me and a decade later my vision is still as good as it was the day after the operation. There was great follow-up after the operation, and at every visit over the twenty-three years Iâve been a patient I left feeling that my eye health is his greatest concern. Not having to wear glasses for distance vision has allowed me to enjoy things like skiing as I never could before.
I have been a patient of Dr. Medford for seven years. He is very knowledgeable and knows to communicate this knowledge in a competent and concise manner. Dr. Medford is always polite, courteous and has a genuine concern for his patients. He is attentive, focused and takes time to listen and responds in a thorough, systematic manner. Dr. Medford is a credit to the Medical Profession.
Very professional office. I have been a patient of Dr. Medford's for about 20 years. I recently had cataract surgery. Dr. Medford and his staff are very thorough and answer all questions that you have. My surgery was very successful. My sight is the best that it has ever been.
Dr. Medford performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. His pre-surgery exams were thorough, he took time to speak with me about the surgery and other options and answer any questions or concerns that I had. The entire process went very well - he has a great surgical coordinator to assist in the scheduling, lens selection, etc. I am very pleased with the results - my vision with the new lens is more than I expected. I would recommend Dr. Medford for both cataract surgery and normal eye care.
I had my cataract surgeries done in Feb and then the second eye in March... Dr. M. is truly a professional and went through the whole procedure with me step by step.... His staff, both at the office and at the Ridgedale Surgery Center were great... I am 69 years old and now do not need reading or distance glasses.... Dr Medford also performed this surgery on my 93 yr old father in law and he too has the same results... awesome.... would recommend him highly....
Everything went well. I was well informed before the surgery as to what to expect and how to look after my eye before and after surgery. Everyone was pleasant, polite, and efficient.
I had cataract surgery about 18 mos. ago. The surgery was performed in Baltimore by a physician well-known for his success in this type of surgery. When my left eye's vision became cloudy, I went to my eye doctor in Chatham. He recommended Dr. Medford and said I would probably benefit from a "YAG". I made an appt. - saw Dr. Medford the next week - had an appt. following week for the procedure the following week - could not believe results. Dr. Medford is quick to put one at ease. His explanation of what he sees and what he suggests as a remedy are detailed and easy to comprehend. The decision is left up to the patient. Manner day of surgery was easy going and reassuring. Follow up appt. was two weeks later with suggestions for continual care. I told Dr. Medford I'd seen a lot of ophthalmologists, and he and my family eye doctor were the only two that took the time to answer questions and give explanations. Yea! I drove two hours each way and would do it again.
Dr. Medford has taken care of my eyes for nearly a decade, and most recently did cataract surgery. I am thrilled with the results--I no longer need glasses except for long periods of needlework, and my distance vision is better than I can remember--even back to my childhood!
Because of medication that I am taking, I felt some concern about a cataract procedure. An opthamologist whom I saw about two years added to my concern ,enough for me to postpone making a decision. Dr. Medford, whom I met recently, gave me confidence in his abilities,and eased my anxieties. He removed my cataract successfully, so that, as of the following day, I no longer needed eye-glasses for distance, for TV, or for driving. I have new bi-focals for reading and for the computer. And I feel twenty years younger. Bravo Dr. Medford.
Dr. Medford is an intelligent experienced opthalmologist. I have been his patient for 15 years. He has performed two very successful cataract surgeries on me. They were free from pain and stress. My office visits have always been positive and educational. Dr. Medford engages you in your exam and asks about your concerns. I always leave his office with a positive outlook. The staff is very friendly. Dr Medford has a great sense of humor which I enjoy.
He made a scared patient totally at ease,the whole cataract experience from start to finish was a piece of cake. He was so kind and gentle,a great dr!
Dr. Medford is such a funny, personable guy that it is almost hard to believe at first what a great doctor he is - but believe it! That calm, disarming, friendly manner is an essential part of his bedside manner. After all, he's cutting on your EYES! You need to like this guy, to be comfortable with him, in order to be confident in his ability and make your eye surgery experience great. He gave me my sight back! And until the cataract surgery was done, I did not even realize how bad my eyes had gotten! As I told him and the staff, I have never hugged a doctor so many times - and I did not realize how much money I would save reverting back to 60 watt bulbs! Thank you, Dr. Medford!
I am so appreciative of the kindness and expert care of Dr. Medford. From my intial examination until currectly, follow two very sucessful cataract surgeries, Dr. Medford has been wonderful! He takes the time to explain and to answer any questions with thorough explanations and great respect, and at times with resassuring humor. During the surgeries his "bedside manner" was comforting and very kind. It is hard to find doctors who treat patients with the respect and dignity that Dr. Medford gives. Thank you, Dr. Medford!
Dr. Medford performed cataract surgery on my left eye, where vision had declined significantly. Being mostly blind in my right eye, I was apprehensive about both the surgical process itself (would I have a period of blindness?) and the possibility of a bad procedure resulting in permanent blindness. On all counts, I could not have had a better outcome, including now having the best vision I have ever enjoyed (with my astigmatism corrected). I have already recommended Dr. Medford to some key friends.
Dr. Medford is the finest Ophthalmologist. He is professional, very knowledgable, takes time to explain procedures and answer questions. His staff is also very courteous and professional.
While it may have taken a few weeks to get my exam, I can only say that my experience (and that of my family) has be EXCELLENT.Dr. Medford is a caring and careful doctor. His staff is 1st rate... they all listen well to my concerns and address them fully. My mom's cataract surgery was just amazing. She sees better than me!.. WOW!... Thank you Dr. Medford
prices for contacts are off the charts, as is the laser surgery he offers...better off at Lens crafter for same tests and glasses at 1/3 the price.
