Cataract surgery:Dr. Zellner felt I would not need anesthesia. Imagine? Of course I did and the doctor was not in my insurance plan which left me with unnecessary bills. More importantly, after the surgery I felt the nerves in my face pulling for months and my vision made me imbalanced. Though the cataract was taken care of, my reading ability was compromised. I could no longer read labels, newspapers, etc. Now I wear reading glasses. The recovery was lengthy and difficult. Expect problems.

Dr zellner is careless and an reckless. In 2012 my 80 year old father had cataract surgery on his left eye which Dr zellner insisted he have his vision was good the day before his surgery the day after he had terrible pain and had a complete loss of vision days after the surgery do not trust your eyes to this Dr.
