Patient Comments (4)
in Northridge, CA |
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,

I am extremely happy to be a patient of Dr. David Aizuss. The office staff is very helpful and efficient. The surgery coordinator explained my procedures and answered all my questions and made me comfortable with what to expect. Dr. Aizuss has taken much time with me during all my office visits and I have much respect for his medical knowledge and his care. I highly recommend Dr. Aizuss and his entire staff to anyone seeking ophthalmology care.
