Dr Wineberg is a great caring Dr. I switched to her about 10 years ago and will not go anywhere else. She deals with my Ms and is always keeping up to date on MS

Review for Dr. Parekh

I had a positive experience during surgery with the staff. As a professional artist and landscape painter, I was immediately shocked at how surgery improved my vision and clarity of colors! I am one happy artist!

Review for Dr. Parekh

Waiting 2+ hours to get into your appointment is unacceptable. My last appointment was scheduled to be at 3:20. It’s was 5:30 before I even got to see Dr. Abrams. This happens every appointment; I’m not impressed and very disappointed.
