in Bayside, NY |
Dr. Irene Draga performed cataract surgery on me last month in October. She was so kind, gentle and patient with me as I'm extremely sensitive about eye touching. She explained everything as we went along before and after surgery. I already knew she was an excellent doctor, so I was at ease and had total confidence about being in the best hands, which is why I went to her. Her staff and assistants were also very very nice. The surgery went excellent and I have 20/20 again in my right eye.

I have been a patient of Dr. Draga's for many years. She is unfailingly kind and considerate and generous with her time. I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes. She carefully explained the procedure and assured me that all would be well. Indeed, it was! The two surgeries went exactly as I had been told to expect, and the improvement in my vision is remarakable.
