Patient Comments (5)

This is one amazingly very good and kind doctor. My sister had lost almost total vision in both eyes due to neglected care and cataracts. We were quite worried that she would not be able to regain her eye sight. After cataract surgery on both eyes she now has nearly perfect vision. He was...more

Dr.Davis did cataract on my aunt and is scheduled to my dad as well! I wouldn't trust ANYONE else with my family's eye care needs! Dr.Davis is not only friendly, kind-hearted and a genius, he doesn't push you to do surgery when its not needed and thats a quality that MOST surgeons don't have! Kudos...more

Dr. Davis did both of my cataracts. One his first exam he noticed that my eyelids were droopy as well. I thought I was just tired all the time! My cataract surgery was a piece of cake. No discomfort at all. The staff was very caring, informative and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Davis.

Almost three years ago Dr Davis performed what was described as a straight forward surgery to replace a lens in my eye that was loose. I was told it would take 15-20 minutes. Three hours later my life never has been the same. No driving, no sports ,very low vision. After being a patient of St...more

All surgeons have complications sometimes. If there is ever a problem I always will be available to help however I can. I cannot recall ever doing a lens exchange and having a patient result worse than before surgery, but If you call 559-2020 and identify yourself, I will call you back and will help you to the maximum extent I am able. One thought would be to evaluate BOTH eyes for driving. if you decide not to return for appointments that is your call. If you want to see me i'll do my best.

Not impressed. No bedside manner. Spends more time deflecting to other patient stories or bragging on himself . My father is having cataract surgery complications as well as post op complications. I don't feel Dr Davis is being honest with us or forthcoming. I don't feel like he's being honest...more

This is dated April 2017. I am unsure who to contact because I cannot think of any one of my patients in early 2017 who had any cataract surgery complications. If your father had a stroke shortly after surgery and lost vision there is nothing any ophthalmologist can do to make it better and I wish I could. At any rate I will do my best to help you if you want to contact me and communicate. Please call 719 559 2020 and leave a message for me to contact you. If I can help you I will. - Dr Davis
