I was hesitant to keep this appointment due to my anxiety from last year due to poor infection control practices. I saw NO hand washing and eye drop vials are used on multiple patients. But this time I was determined to speak up, even though last year I was met with resistance (like my questions were beneath him). Not a problem!! After waiting more than 60 minutes in the outside waiting room, I needed to use the restroom, which was filthy. Yeah..I'm all set.

Review is easy 5 stars to Dr., Lou, and all staff.

The outcome of my cataract surgery was terrible. I was left with so many floaters in my left eye I cancelled my right eye surgery. I was never told of the floater risk. Dr told me on my post op visit I would just have to live with them. I was also was never given the option of getting higher quality lens. I'm seeing another doctor.

Professionalism! FIVE STARS! I would recommend nobody else to have your cataracts removed. But, I do have to say that his Asst. Lou is someone everyone says is wonderful, amazing and special! All I can say is that I need to do a complete investigation of this lady, to try and determine why so many people...are so damn right! Don't go elsewhere. See Dr. Petashnick..so you can SEE!
