Patient Comments (1)
in Madison, WI |
Dr. Cherney restored my sight back in 1992. I was a diabetic who was afflicted with diabetic retinaopathy & was considered to be legally blind. Going through dialysis & awaiting a renal transplant I found myself unable to see. I dealt with my blindness for almost two years & Dr. Cherney became likr a brother to me. He would always get me in immediately if I began having eye bleeds associated with the retinopathy. He later did a fluid extraction which caused me to regain my sight. Thanks!!!!
