Patient Comments (2)
in Marietta, GA |
I had cataract surgery on both eyes over the course of two months. I was very happy with my experience with Dr. Borger and his staff. This is a fantastic place to come for eye care because the people are great to work with and Dr. B is so easy to talk to and really cares about getting optimum results. I would send everyone here without a doubt. PS my vision is now great.

He really did not explain in detail the procedures for cataract surgery. I felt like he really didn't care about explaining the process.
