I have seen the Doctor for almost a year now. I found him to be totally professional and very well trained. He removed a melanoma from my eye lid with such ease and professionalism that I chose him to do my cataract surgery. Both my eyes were just done with no problems and true workmanship. My vision is now 20/20 in both eyes and I never had any problems. I have recommended him to all of my relatives and friends.
I have only accolades about this wonderful Dr. He has been truly a life saver for my child. My child had been suffering from a rare chronic illness that can lead to blindness. With the help of the Dr., my child's eyes have been completely healed, and he is on the road to recovery from his illness. This Dr. has a great bed side manner, as well as, being very professional and caring! I would highly recomend this Dr. for any vision problems.
