Specialties

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

One Star

The whole office was cold. They charged me much more than they quoted on the phone and didn't take Amex. They never told me before hand. The doctor was rude and cold. He made funny faces towards me. Unacceptable. I see doctors all the time. I have never been treated so poorly ever.

Two doctors, not one!

The kind, patient Dr. Zweifach, same location, is the father, now mostly retired, occasionally seeing patients when son in surgery, but no longer does surgery himself. The son has a rather abrupt, distracted manner and is far less patient-oriented but is also a top-notch surgeon - did one of my cataracts and I knew I was in good hands. Besides, his father told me so!

Best doc ever!

Dr. Zweifach has not only treated me and my family for many years, but also several dozen of my friends. I won't let anyone I know see any ophthalmologist but him. He is not only a fantastic physician, having solved many serious problems over the years, but his bedside manner is exceptional. He thoroughly explains absolutely everything, and leaves you with no questions unanswered. He is also a funny guy. I can't recommend him enough!

Exceptional Care

What do you want in a Dr.? Especially one that help you see and stay connect tot he world. For me, I want a Dr. that I totally trust. Dr. Zweifach is the one! He operated on my cataracts. If you are like me you HATE operating rooms. I couldn't believe how comfortable he made me feel even before the anathesia kicked in. I was back 6 weeks later in the operating room getting the other eye done. Today, I see better than I have in over 50 years. Dr. Zweifach inspires confidence, is enjoyable to visit ,always clearly explains what he see and really inquires if I have any questions. His staff is courteous and his office is both convenient and comfortable. But most important Dr. Zweifach is a terrific doctor.
