I was referred to Dr. David by my contacts’ doctor. It was the best directive ever possible. From the moment I entered his office, I felt he had my best interest first and foremost. Dr. David showed concern, answered all my questions with great professionalism, and saw me through corrective astigmatism lazar, plus two cataract surgeries. He has such a warm personality, which sets him apart in today’s world. Because of his extreme ability’s, my surgery’s have all been completely successful. I am able to see better and clearer than I have ever been able to!! Thank you Dr. Dave!!!! You have my full recommendation! Toni (Altona) Cramer

I had a terrible experience with this office. I don't appreciate being made to wait for long periods when I have an appointment. The office is old and dirty and the staff is not friendly or professional. I like the doctor, but clearly, he doesn't know how to manage his calendar.

Everyone connected to this office are professionals. I had an issue with my eye due, in part, to another eye doctor. Dr. Perlmutter was able to resolve it and has been very attentive and caring throughout the process. His office does not give you that "factory assembly line feel." Each person treats you like you are the most important person they have to deal with that day.

I have been very happy with the care Dr. Perlmutter has provided for my cataract issues. I was initially terrified of this procedure. Dr. Perlmutter Did a wonderful job of calming my fears. More importantly, the procedure was completed with no negative after effects. My eyes are fine. Thank you, Dr. Perlmutter.

Dr. Perlmutter quickly diagnosed a problem I had for 2 years and which other eye doctors could not correct. Two surgeries later my vision is better than it's been in years without the need for contacts or glasses.

Last month I had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Perlmutter. I was very impressed by the way his staff prepared me for surgery and how comfortable Dr. Perlmutter made me feel. The surgery went as described and my eyesight improved almost immediately. Thank you Dr.Perlmutter.

Great staff very friendly and courtesy Dr. Perlmutter told me what he was going to do and how it would be done .My eye sight was 30-400 and could no longer drive at night. now i have 30- 20 vision and can drive at night with out glasses which i had worn for 35 years . It was painless the operation and very quick results were instantaneous. If you need cataract surgery do not put it off do it now
