I have been going to Dr Mittleman for many years and have been completely satisfied. I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes for which I was in a Bausch & Lomb study recommended by Dr Mittleman. I can't describe the difference in my eyesight. Dr Mittleman did a great job and was thorough in telling me what he was doing. I would recommend him highly.

I have been using Dr. Mittleman for many years. He has performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. He ie an outstanding surgeon and a terrific human being. His office is run very efficiently. The only complaint I have is that the wait from the time of eye dilation to the time I get to see Dr. Mittleman is sometimes too long, at least 20 minutes, often longer. Check-in was done by Jackie, who was extremely efficient and friendly. Katy was excellent in getting my eyes ready for the Dr’s. Exam.
This was my annual check up. The following people participated: Jorge, Katy, Matt, Dr. Mittleman, Mafail. Everyone was courteous and professional. Dr. Mittleman explained my results and did thorough exam to my eyes.

I was checked in by Jackie within minutes of entering the office and was examined by Jessica with virtually no wait. After eye dilation, Dr Mittleman came in within minutes and spoke to me, describing what he was going to do. After examination he outlined his findings and probable courses of action. I was extremely impressed with all the personnel, with the efficiency, with the welcoming nature of the office personnel up to and including Jorge, who scheduled appointments for me for follow ups.

The staff of Mittleman Eye is excellent. Dr. Mittleman is a great communicator, explains the eye conditions thoroughly, and listens to any questions. This is probably the best Dr/patient experience that I've ever had. I had 1 cataract done recently by Dr. Mittleman and it 'was a walk in the park'.

I am particularly pleased with the excellent treatment afforded me by Dr. Mittleman and members of his staff.
