Two Stars

Dr. Passons is a caring, kind physician and excellent surgeon! He always has a positive attitude and is so happy to see his patients. He performed an emergency procedure on me one weekend and I was so grateful to get relief right away. I have had no problems with my eye after the procedure. He truly gives the best care to his patients and their families. We are blessed to have such a caring professional physician and surgeon in this era of "managed care". Dr. Passons does not need to have anyone show him how to care for patients: it is in his nature to give excellent care because he loves what he does and truly has a heart for his patients' well being. I have had several family members and friends who have been under Dr. Passons' care and they all are extremely satisfied with the care Dr. Passons gives and highly recommends him as I do. May God bless Dr. Passons and his staff as they continue to provide superior patient care.

I find Dr Passons to be an extremely courteous and caring physcian. He definitely does not try to recruit catarac surgery opportunuies. I have seen him twice and am very thankful that he explained that my cataracs need to be weighed against several other factors before considering surgery.
