Dr. Medina got me into surgery quickly and saved my eyesight. He has been amazing in his follow up care and made sure that everything was healed correctly before sending me back to my regular eye doctor. Thank you so much Dr. Medina

As a nurse myself, I have a bit more knowledge than the typical patient. I was very impressed with Dr Medina and all the staff at Retinal Consultants. I required eye surgery. Everything was explained prior to the surgery and I was given thorough information about preparation and equipment suggested for post-op. 24 hour specific positioning was doable with their good advise. Hope I never need another surgery, but I would make RC my go-to clinic.

I was scared when I learned I had macular holes in both eyes. My right eye I was legally blind . I can't express how comforting Dr Medina was and so reassuring. He did surgery on both of my eyes. I was in last week as it's been almost a year. My sight is amazing and my eyes totally healed. I cannot give Dr Medina a high enough recommendation. He is one of the most knowledgeable doctors in this field. I don't think a dr could be any more caring ,compassionate. Thank you for saving my sight.

Dr. Medina is a kind and caring Doctor..He is very thorough in explaining exactly what you can expect. I felt comfortable with him doing my IOL Dislocation Surgery..I met him first in the Modesto office for a consultation and my surgery took place in Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento
