Patient Comments (1)
Virginia Beach, VA |
I had an absolutely awful experience with my cataract surgery performed by Dr. Kurz. The surgery itself was long and tedious. To say I was miserable afterwards would be an understatement. I have since gone to a different doctor who explained to me that the lens had not been inserted successfully and thus I suffer from permanent "floaters" in that eye. Dr. Kurz never explained this to me. My advice if you're having cataract surgery---don't go to this doctor.
