Dr. Irene Draga

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.
