A friend gave me Dr. Matzkin's name when she was treated for cataracts. I waited almost too long as I had cataracts both eyes with one ready to burst. We tackled the worst one first then on to the second one and I cannot believe the changes he's wonderful as well as everyone in his group from office to surgery absolutely the best!!!!!!!!!
I was referred by my Neurologist so that I could get a thorough eye exam, as I have Multiple Sclerosis. I have had several Optic Neuritis flare ups and I have a lot of lasting problems as a result. Dr Matzkin is very thorough and caring. My experience with his office has been very positive and I have always felt like both he and his staff listen to any concerns I have, I would highly recommend Dr Matzkin to anyone needing ongoing eye care.
I was having vision problems and could not see to drive. I contacted Dr. Matzkin's office and they were able to fit me in. I was diagnosed as having two cataracts. Within 10 days his office got me scheduled for surgery and had both cataracts removed in two procedures. I first saw him and I had 20/50 vision after the procedure I am now happy to say I have 20/20 vision.
