The entire team at Commonwealth Eye Surgery center is worthy of high praise. Dr. Wortz was the surgeon who did both of my cataract and Toric implant procedures this month. He provided a gentle laser procedure to break up the cataracts and precision in implanting the lenses. Nice man.. excellent surgeon!!

Dr. Worx was very impudent and non responsive to patient concerns. There was an extensive wait time in the office. The whole setting resembles an assembly line. I think that when you have to wait so long that they bring you snack crackers that it is getting just a little on the overbooked to get more money side. We were half way home when I noted that my husband still had his IV in his arm. I would not recommend this office to anyone. they are only interested in the money!!!
