Port Charlotte, FL |
During routine cataract surgery Dr. Knapp perforated my posterior capsule. This complication only happens in 1% of cases.. after surgery he claimed "there was a technical difficulty" and after I said I needed more info than that, stated what happened. In addition, he has no personality, not even basic social skills- perhaps om the spectrum? I now must follow-up with a retina specialist to determine new risks from this injury. Stay away!

Absolutely NO caring or warmth in the man at all. Basically told to just learn to live with the problem good bye.
