Hi's a great surgeon

His skills and expertise are restoring my life! It’s worth the travel of 11- to 14-hour days to have an appointment with him. Four days post-op and I am extremely encouraged.

I recommend Dr. Cestari and his team at Mass. Eye and Ear. Office visits, and surgery to correct adult strabismus were excellent experiences with wonderful results.

Dr Cestari has been great! He helped me see straight again. Surgery was a breeze and the personal call 2 days later was very nice. He is a caring and kind doctor. Everyone in the office was great. I’ll never look further for another ophthalmologist. I would refer anyone to him. Just love that place
