the receptionist is super personable and kind. DrJaffe is very courteous but i did not get any solution to my problem , Also the technicians are the ones that look into your eyes and do the tests . He just sat with me at the end and not even look up my eyes until I asked him to check in something. This is the first time that we go to an ophthalmologist that doesn't do the exams himself . I did not get even a prescription for the itching in my eyes . I went to other doctor that solved the problem

Dr. Gary Jaffe did a commonly performed YAG laser procedure to clear up a haze that formed in my eye following cataract surgery a few years ago. Though the haze mostly cleared, I was left with a shadowy area and several floaters, one of which is so big and spiny it's like an insect flying around in my eye and interferes with my vision. Dr. Jaffe said the laser likely caused skin in the back of my eye to chip off (posterior vitreous detachment) and referred me to a retinol surgeon. Distressing!

I highly recommend Dr. Gary Jaffee. His office is very professional and treats their patients with the utmost respect and kindness. I have been through a lot with my eye and I appreciated the way Dr. Jaffe treated me. He presented me with a realistic outcome prior to my cataract surgery. I was not made to feel like I had no hope, which was how I was treated at another eye doctors office. My surgery was a huge success. My outcome was better then I or Dr. Jaffee expected. I can't thank him enough.

I was impressed by the office staff . The wait time was minimal and when I met with Dr. Jaffe I was very comfortable with his advice. He took time to answer my questions and told me step by step what to expect. The evening of my surgery he personally called to see how I was doing. Throughout the whole process of having both eyes receiving cataract surgery the degree of professionalism was impressive. I would highly recommend Dr. Gary Jaffe from the Jaffe Eye Institute to anyone needing cataract
