Dr. Pinhas has gone above and beyond in treating me. I am very skittish about my eyes and even the thought of having anything come at my eyes (don't even think about pointing a finger at me if it's at eye level) puts me into a state of terror. Given this idiosyncrasy of mine I dreaded the idea of having cataract surgery on both of my eyes but Dr. P understood the problem and was able to perform both surgeries successfully. I was an unintentional bad patient and he is an intentionally excellent doctor. I don't understand the reviewer who complained that Dr. P is money hungry and refused emergency care--there has to be more to the story then that which was expressed. I do agree with the reviewer who complained about the staff. Yes, SOME of them can be rude but most of them are professional and pleasant.
This doctor operated and followed care treatment to my mother for cataracts /Glaucoma. He explains in simple terms to you step by step on what's going on, also he is very patience with all questions and very thorough with exams. Mom and I felt very comfortable in seeing Dr. Pinhas. Well worth the wait. Very difficult in getting an appointment, no call back right away takes days of leaving messaging to get an appointment.
I haven't seen this dr but he is my mothers doctor for the past 8 or 9 years. He always has awesome bedside manners and explains everything that he is doing. He is patient and answers all questions clearly and in a way that regular people can understand. His staff are the opposite, they are not patient, rude and combative. But as for him, he is an awesome doctor.
