Dr. Blatt is the best.
in Douglasville, GA |
Have been several other eye doctors Dr Blatt is the best. Gives personal care to each patient. Diagnosed with cataracts in June, very nearsighted. After two separate surgeries in August, I now have 20/20 vision in both eyes. I'm 66 and have been wearing glasses for 54 years . They may be crowded but he's worth the wait.

I just returned from a 2 hour wait at DR. Blatt office, his offices personal had bad attitudes never apologized for the long wait. Gave some excuse about seeing surgery patient, they had to know they would have these people in and have personal to handle them as well as all of the other patients they had. I will be pulling my records and going to another Doctor one who cares about their patients.

Dr. Blatt has been my eye doctor for over 10 years. He is up to date on all the newest procedures and has the newest equipment. He's highly intelligent and very personable. He did cataract surgery on both my eyes earlier this year and he did a superb job. Eyesight is now of a person 30 years younger than I am. He's the only doctor I would trust with my eyesight.
