Dr. Amiel is wonderful. He is kind and understanding, and takes his time with his patients, never rushing you out the door. He answers questions carefully and in such a way that it is easy to understand his instructions and answers. He performed my cataract surgery on both eyes, and I could not be happier with the results. I cannot thank him enough and would highly recommend him to family, friends, and anybody that will listen.
