Dr. Eliot Siegel has been by eye doctor for over 10. I became a patient 9f his when the eye doctor that I was using told me that I had a retinal tear and needed immediate surgery. She called Dr. Siegel and set up an appointment for me with him that day. He successfully preformed the surgery that afternoon. About a year ago, Dr. Siegel also successfully preformed Cataract Surgery on both of my eyes. I am now able to read and drive without the assistance of eye glasses.

Dr. Siegel was extremely careful and through, he listened to all my questions, did an extensive exam, and then gave me explanations for his findings, He took as much time as I needed to get my questions answered. My pain improved dramatically, and my eyesight immediately got better due to his treatment. I would highly recommend to friends and coworkers. A big plus was that he took my PPO Blue Cross.

I would absolutely refer to Dr. Siegel BUT, I called today at 9:30 to get a copy of my eyeglass prescription because I broke my glasses last night. I was told within a half hour I would receive by fax It is now 12:30 and I have not received it and stuck now not being able to see. I have a person who has been with me since 10:00 am to drive me to get new glasses. What is up with this?

Dr. Siegel has been my ophthalmologist for over 15 years and has provided me with optimum eye care treatment related to cataract issues, glaucoma and other periodic assessments of vision health. I have found him to be most professional and his office staff to be courteous and efficient. I will certainly continue to recommend Dr. Siegel to friends and associates without any reservation.
Santa Monica, CA |
Neither my husband nor I trust Dr. Siegel . There have been too many slightly shady incidents, and things that were just totally untrustworthy and not up to professional standards. It was also an extremely annoying office, it's run more like mill than a private eye doctor's office. We found a far superior eye doctor, and we're both much happier. He was constantly setting up far too many unnecessary appointments for both my husband , and myself, we're not pleased.
in Westwood, CA |
Dr Siegel addressed all my concerns with patients and confidents rarely experienced these days with most doctors.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Siegel. I had zero vision in my right eye. I got an immediate appointment. Dr. Siegel could tell right away that I had an extreme cataract. I was convinced that Dr. Siegel was the right person to operate on my eye. The surgery was flawless. My vision was not only restored but improved as he corrected the vision in that eye. No most op. issues. Most costs were covered by insurance and the few that were not were reasonable. I highly recommend Dr. Siegel.
