Cataract and Retina surgery

wrote a previous review and made a mistake. The review should of said that in my right eye where Tawansy did cataract surgery, my vision has gotten much worse instead of better. He ruined my eye!

Full Review Rating Breakdown
One Star

Tawansy did a retinal and cataract surgery on my right eye. He said that after about 3 months my eye would feel normal and that eye flashes, squigglies, shadows, feeling like my eye has a peripheral problem and other weird symptoms that I DID NOT have before surgery would go away. Besides 6 months later still having all these awful symptoms, my eye sight on the right eye hasn't gotten considerably worse since he decided to laser that same eye with at least 50 to 70 shots of the laser. He did not sedate me. He did not brace my head with the strap that was connected to the contraption that I had to put my head on. Also since surgery to this day it is hard to work on a computer which is my job and fluorescent lights hurt my eyes. GET A SECOND OPINION! Also every appointment was at least a 2.5 to 3.5 hour wait to I was finally seen by Tawansy. He is obviously in it for the MONEY. I forgot to also mention that in the prep operating room I had to be in there with several prisoners!

Took Very Good Care of Me and My Eye

An Amazing Doctor...he took my case straight away. His surgical clinic in Pasadena is the epitome of efficiency and professionalism. I also received excellent after-care. He gave me his cell phone to call the days right after my surgery. A staff member also called to check in on me. I traveled 150 miles each way to see Dr. Tawansy because he is that good.
