Patient Comments (3)
Manhasset, NY |
Unfortunately after being a patient of Dr. D'Aversa for years, I cannot recommend him as a doctor. He totally botched up a simple cataract operation. He described what I could expect and I got the opposite. He could not give me a valid reason but he was willing to do cataract surgery on the other eye to compensate. It would be like having two different contact lens prescriptions. He even had the audacity to suggest that it was my dry eye that caused the problem.

Dr. D'Aversa advised me on the repair needed when my first cataract operation with another doctor resulted in a complication. He carefully explained the risks for my second cataract surgery before the surgery. The day of the surgery, he explained each step as he performed it. The day after this surgery my vision was 20:20 and crystal clear.

I have found Dr,Daversa to be totally professional and caring. I was sent to him by my ophthalmologist due a certain eye condition that I have. He has brought relief from my pain and has always been caring.
