I was referred to Dr. Springer by my optometrist for a cataract consultation. My experience during the visit was wonderful, the staff was helpful, and Dr. Springer is amazing ! He told me I needed to have cataract removal surgery on both eyes. He explained the procedure to me, answered all my questions fully at the first appointment. When it came to the day of surgery, I couldn't ask for a better doctor. He put me at ease before the surgery began, and all went smoothly. Thank you Dr. Springer

He is very thorough and caring. I have been his patient for more than 15 years and wouldn't think of another opthaologist. Many years ago I worked for a large company who sold ophthalmic equipment (in fact my boss brought contact lens into the U.S.) plus we had a large office in downtown Chicago and cared for many patients. Dr. Springer is the greatest and with my background no one compares to dr. Springer.

He ruined mother's eye. She had to have corrective surgery to his mistake! The correction surgeon said Springer's work was the the worst He's seen.

You only get one chance when you're dealing with a surgery. Dr. Springer was thorough,knowledgeable, and his bedside manner leaves me as a patient confident in his extraordinary skills. He relies upon the expertise of a scalpel rather than a laser. I knew exactly in detail what would be happening from the start and after my recovery.
