Amazing doctor with and excellent Staff.
in Hamilton, Bermuda |
I recently had a cataract removed by Dr. Gabay and I am very pleased with the result. I can now see very well at distance where before I was nearly blind in that eye. Dr. Gabay and his staff made me feel very much at ease and I would recommend them to anyone that needs cataract surgery.
