Dr Feinman is an Excellent Doctor, if wouldn't be because of the Fantastic Surgery he performed in my right eye, I wouldn't be able to see like I can see now, I was about to lost my sight on my right eye and Dr Feinman with his experience and knowledge gave me back my 20/20 vision. I recommend him without any doubt. He is very good at what he do. Vladimir Miranda from New York.

I found Dr. Feinman to be thorough, attentive, kind, gentle and patient. He was intentional about explaining what he was doing, answering my questions, and listening to my concerns or worries. Dr. Feinman explained the benefits and downsides of the procedure in which I had to undergo, while detailing my responsibility to aiding in the success of my healing. Dr. Feinman handled my follow up visits with as much care and thoroughness as he did with my pre-surgical visits.

Dr. Feinman operated on my Cataract last year. He explained and gave me instructions that I followed and had a very successful operation and recovery without any problems. He is a caring doctor and takes all the precautions to keep your eyes in good health.
