Daniel Alfaro is a poor example of a doctor. He did surgery on my retina 4 times(Shame on Me) & really messed me up. Each time he said it looks good & it looks great when in fact IT DID NOT! I finally changed surgeons & he attempted to repair the damage that had been done. Alfaro messed around...more
