Been seeing Dr. Major Jr* for about 8 months for floaters in my eyes. He is very good. Is always prepared when seeing me after the staff has collected information on my current status. He quickly examines me, give me an update on status and then any need for followup. I have been very please with him.

Dr. Major performed my Detacted Retina surgery successfully a year ago, and my follow up visits with him have been positive. He is extremely professional and very personable, always taking the time to explain exactly what is occurring. I wholeheartedly recommend him.

Easy to get an appointment. Was seen timely. His team was efficient in initiating and completing the tests ordered by Dr. Major. Dr. Major was thorough and explained his findings and recommendations adequately. He listened to my concerns unhurriedly and answered all my concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Major for anybody with Retina-Vitreal problems.

In 2014 Dr. Major performed macular pucker surgery (right eye). I blame myself for going ahead with the surgery since my vision was only slightly distorted in that eye. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Major was 45 minutes late due to "personal business" according to a nurse. I was already prepped and ready on the table during the wait. Dr. Major insisted that after surgery retina scans looked good. The real result is a significant grayed out portion of my vision field that wasn't there before.
