Patient Comments (1)
in Durham, NC |
Great, I had a cataract in both eyes and had to have them taken out weeks apart. I had Dr. Simon for the first time, not knowing anything about him. I did great with the surgery and was pleased greatly with Dr. Simon. He explained each step and made me comfortable with all of it. He is a great doctor and I will recommend him highly. As the old saying is: You;ll be glad you did. He has a wonderful staff also.
