This man should be sued and no longer allowed to do surgery on people. If my mother wasn't such a good person he would be an unwealthy man. As we now at u.c.l.a. to correct her vision that he destroyed and charged $20,000.00 for. BEWARE. He was supposed to correct her vision and failed but, happily took the money. And didn't want her to even discuss this with him. I witnessed this as well. The man is after nothing but money. And doesn't care who's vision he destroys. Heads up

Scheduling an appointment takes about 45 min over the phone, and this rushed doctor is definitely not worth the wait.
