Dr. Nicolitz did my cataract surgery with the multifocal lens. i am so happy I do not wear glasses anymore. The staff was pleasant, kind, and informative. My mother also had her cataract surgery there.

I called on the phone before going in and was told my insurance deductible for a contact lens exam would be $85. When I got there I was charged $85. After going through a preliminary exam of eye charts, I was taken into the exam room. After they had dilated my eyes for the exam, someone came in and told me I owed an additional $120 for the actual contact fitting. They wouldn't budge when I told them I was told $85. I got my money back and went to the Target eye center where I spent $40.

From the first visit, I knew this surgeon was going to do the best that could be done. He is a straight shooter and gives you as bad as it can get, but the best possible outcome and stays up with the latest in care. I would highly recommend Dr Nicolitz and team. My situation was squamous cell carcinoma. I feel my surgery and recovery was quick, thorough and I know each member of the staff as well as Dr Nicolitz care about the care I received. I am going to switch my general eye care as well!
