Patient Comments (1)
I saw Dr. Herschitz as a second opinion. My eye doctor told me that i needed surgery, because i had scratched retina and very often was having pain and severe tearing. Then i decided to see Dr. Herchitz. I was impressed by the office. It was very clean, the staff was very friendly and professional. Doctor patiently listened to me, examined my eyes and prescribed medication and directions fot home. He was very attentive and professional. Couple days later my tearing and pain was gone forever.
