My husband had a cataract surgery performed by Dr. Naseh. He was excellent the first time but didn't have a good experience with his second eye. But the doctor was not prepared to listen to us which was a bit disappointing.

I had cataract surgery done by Dr. Naseh. My vision is so improved. I feel like Dr. Naseh is a miracle worker. Process was so much easier than I imagined it to be. Staff and facilities great. I would highly recommend Dr. Naseh and his staff. Judith K. Callan
