What People Say About Dr. David Aizuss, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I went in to be evaluated for laser treatment for a large eye floater. I sent them an email explaining my issues and spoke at length on the phone with an office manager. I was told they take my insurance and that they do many laser treatments for floaters. The day of the appointment I get a brisk call saying they don't take my insurance for the initial visit. So I agree to a fee. I get there and they run an eye exam for glasses! When I see Aizuss he immediately tells me he rarely does laser for eye floaters unless the person has had cataract surgery because laser can hurt your lens. If I was told this during my first interviews I would never have taken the long trip to see Aizuss. He and his entire team are not friendly and seem only interested in selling glasses and contacts. WHAT A RIP OFF. AVOID. AVOID. AVOID.

I am a recent transplant from NY to LA & my cousin referred me to Dr. Aizuss. I always had the good fortune of having a good ophthalmologist in NY, but now I have a great ophthalmologist. The staff who do the preliminary testing are friendly & very professional. As for Dr. Aizuss, he is warm, friendly, easy to talk to, explains everything clearly, & he is also a terrific surgeon. He referred me to a superb retina specialist when I needed one. Dr. Aizuss is the best.

Dr. Aizuss has been my doctor for over 20 years. I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes and have been so pleased with his skill, aftercare, responsiveness to my many questions, and general caring. Recommend him highly.

I have been going to Dr. Aizuss for many years. I have been very happy on all my visits. I just had cataract surgery and lens replacements which allows me to see and read without corrected lenses for the first time. I have been wearing glssses since the third grade and I am now 80 years old. It is wonderful to see again without them. I am a very happy person. The staff in Dr. Aizuss' office is always kind and friendly, and the surgery center is the best,
