Dr. Kardasis performed cataract lens replacement surgery on both of my eyes. I went from not being able to see well enough to renew my drivers license to having 20/20 vision, both near and distant. He is incredibly thorough and professional.
in Lansing, IL |
Dr. Kardasis is an outstanding surgeon & excellent eye doctor. We are very pleased with the result of my husband's cataract surgery on both eyes. We are very happy with the way he explains the result of his examinations. Both my husband & I are his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Kardasis.
in South Holland, IL |
Dr. Kardasis is an excellent provider. He explained everything to me before and after he preformed my cataract surgeries, both eyes. Both visits were excellent experiences. Dr. Kardasis and his office staff helped make these excellent experiences from the physicians office to the hospital. My return visits to physician were excellent experiences, also. Dr. Kardasis and the office staff are all fantastic. Advocate South Suburban Ambulatory Center staff were all great as well.

I have already recommended Dr. Kardasis to a family member and will continue to do so to anyone in need of his specialty.

I am 81 years old and had cataracts in both eyes and needed surgery. Dr. Kardasis answered all my questions regarding surgery before and after. The surgery went very well, no problems. I was legally blind before the surgery, and now I can see without glasses thanks to Dr. Kardasis. I will recommend Dr. Kardasis to anyone...thnx Doc

Friendly, informative, high level of professionalism. Relates well to patient and takes the time to insure correct diagnosis and explore any underlying conditions. Excellent surgery procedure and follow up. Highly skilled. Performed both cataract surgeries for me. Wonderful overall experience.
in Homewood, IL |
Dr. Kardasis is awesome. He guided me through each step of my 2 cataract surgeries with care and attention to detail. He also fixed a weak spot in my retina with a laser procedure. I am seeing very well now, and no longer need my glasses. I would recommend Dr. Kardasis to anyone. He is a true professional and practices with a personal touch not found in other doctors.

Dr. Kardasis did my cataract surgery and I am thrilled with the results. His bedside manner is amazingly kind and he took as much time as needed to answer any questions and explain things in a manner that I understood. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Kardasis removed a cataract and implanted a corrective lens in an outpatient procedure for me. Within two weeks I was able to see 20/40, without additional lenses. I highly recommend his work.
in Park Forest, IL |
very kind and explains everything I need to know
in Tinley Park, IL |
Waste of time , had 2:45 appointment, when I got there 7 people were waiting (one of them sleeping) At 3:15 they called the 12:30 appointment...Staff was extremely rude and said that is the way they did things...Never Again...Doesn't deserve one star but I had to give a star rating..The chair I was forced to sit in (the only one left) had a giant disgusting stain
in Highland, IN |
Dr. Kardasis is always professional and caring. I had successful cataract surgery almost 10 years ago with Dr. Kardasis and I'm very appreciative of his up-to-date knowledge and expertise in the field of medicine as it relates to Ophthalmology. His manner of conversing with you is never rushed and his approach is very sincere.
