Patient Comments (2)
in Peachtree City, GA |
Dr. David Palay & Support Staff/AOA office and Northside Hospital were excellent. I researched his credentials/experience/reputation. From the initial appointment through all follow up issues he and and his Staff were thorough and receptive to my queries. This was no easy feat as anyone getting near my eyes triggers anxiety. I chose laser cataract removal and replacement lenses that corrected my vision issues so that glasses of any kind were no longer necessary. Six months later all is well!

I've rarely had such a wonderful experience with a doctor. He is a skillful surgeon who is patient, calm, caring and attentive. I hadn't realized there were as many choices to make when having cataract surgery, and I needed his help in the decision making process. ( I've been VERY nearsighted since childhood.) He helped me think it through, and I marvel at the result. I now see with such enhanced clarity and color...as if a halogen light were shining on everything. I need only readers.Wow.
