I have been a patient of Dr. Draga's for many years. She is unfailingly kind and considerate and generous with her time. Recently I had cataract surgery in both eyes. Dr. Draga carefully explained the procedure and told me exactly what to expect. It went as she said it would. She is a truly outstanding physician.
Excellent in all aspects of the diagnosis , surgery and treatment for my cataracts. Dr Aspasia Draga was very patient with my concerns and explained all aspects of the proceedure to make me much more at ease. The surgery went very well . The office staff and the surgical staff were also so accomdating and courteous. The outcome was excellent for both eyes and I am enjoying wonderful vision again. Thank you so much.
