A dedicated, talented & caring doctor who really is an expert. Thank you.

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 allowing the veins & cells to die in my retina. Shame, shame on him, but according to him, it looks great. He should not be allowed to practice & his license be revoked. He is bad news!!
