Dr. Nicolas Uzcategui has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Dr. Nick was able to get to the bottom of what was wrong with me after I was referred to him by another physician who couldn't figure it out. He spent a lot of time talking to me and coordinating my care with my other doctors as well. He took me seriously when no one else had in the past. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. I will be forever grateful to him.

He's the Best in his Field!!!!

I was in a bad situation, having seen and been treated by another eye specialist, who did nothing for me. I was finally led to my first meeting with Dr. Uzcatequi. He didn't pull any punches (he knew what he was looking at)he gently, yet firmly,explained what needed to be done and quickly. After having the biopsy and lab results returned, it was exactly as he predicted. I had a rare form of eyelid cancer, sebaceous gland carcinoma.From then on he made all the appointments and surgical arrangements (pulling strings) so I could get it done as soon as possible. I had my final reconstructive surgery within one month of diagnoses. I visited my family in England this past summer and they couldn't believe the outcome of my surgery. They asked me, 'which eye was operated on' that's how skilled he is. If you want to look the best, you need to get the best doctor. I can't praise him enough. With Dr. Uzcatequi my outcome was great and I am so thankful to him. I have no doubts about recommending him.
