Dr Tammaro just completed cataract surgery on me. Both eyes. I'm so happy First I can see distance perfectly. The colors are amazing. I would highly recommend him. Everything went smoothly. I think he is the best. I'm so glad I had it done. At first I was concerned because he replaced my Doctor I had for years but after seeing him 6 times or so the past few months I have complete confidence in him.

He did my cataract surgeries and had to send me to Phoenix to another Dr to do lasix surgery on both eyes after he did each eye. He paid the fee to fix his screw ups. Wow. Should have gone to Phoenix in the beginning.

Did cataract surgery on one eye and made it worse because he did not check for underlying problems. I had some typical light glare caused by cataracts but also had underlying thin retina which made the glare much, much worse after the cataract was removed. He should have checked for that. I also have flashing lights when I move my eye to look around that is terrible at night. I think it is headlights coming at me from the side. I will travel out of town for any more eye care needs.
