Patient Comments (6)
Binghamton, NY |
Dr Sambursky was a good technician who paid no attention to my wishes or my eye history. I asked clearly to remain near-sighted in both eyes and warned that I could not tolerate big changes. The cataract surgery left me with substantial refractive error due a change of vision from -7.25, -6 to +0.50. I now wear contact lenses to become near-sighted again, and glasses. Big cost to me health-wise and in money to me to fix the continuing mess.

Dr. Sambursky and his staff are excellent! I went to him for LASIK, and now I have perfect 20/20 vision. His calm demeanor put me at ease, and he is a top-notch surgeon. He has done the most LASIK procedures in the area. He even teaches other doctors how to do LASIK, so you know he is great at what he does. I'm so glad I went to him, and I highly recommend him to anyone needing eye surgery!

Dr. Sambursky performed my Lasik surgery. He explained the procedure completely, addressing any concerns I had. He spent a lot of time going over the risks and benefits of the procedure. He has a very friendly, laid-back demeanor which is very reassuring as a patient. He is clearly very knowledgeable in his field. The office staff was very helpful as well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sambursky to friends and family.

Dr. Sambursky is a busy eye surgeon but he spent time explaining my condition and my options.

Dr. runs an assembly line practice. He does not follow up with his patients, he has other doctors that do it. He does not inform you of possible negative outcomes. He just hands out booklets.

Tore my lens capsule during cataract surgery and then over corrected the eye with Lasik. I cannot recommend him.
