I like his friendly professional manner. He operated on both my eyes to remove the cataracts, did an excellent job. My one eye gave him a little trouble, but he persevered and all turned out great. I like having an eye doctor with surgical experience. I would highly recommend him. He always answers any and all questions I present him with regarding my eyes.

Sitenga removed something from my eyelid, told me it was done, it wasn't had to come back a month later for a 2 minute visit, he prescribed antibiotics, desk/billing lady told me no charge since it was a follow up. Was billed $160 for a 2 minute office visit, then spent months trying to explain it was no charge and finally Molly, billing, waived the fee. Got a bill today saying I owed again. Spoke with Nancy, Office mgr, she said I had to pay now Molly no longer worked there. No integrity
