Absolutely the BEST!

Dr Edelman explains everything and takes his time with you. He even had a test done twice to reaffirm size of my eyes for cataract surgery. He takes no chances. Wish all my doctors were as caring as he is. No wonder he has high ratings. He and his staff are exceptional!

Thorough

I had many ieye issues and dr Edelman addressed each one. He was very thorough in reviewing tests and explaining them to me. He's conservative in his approach which I appreciate. He doesn't have alone size fits all approach.
