The best eye Dr. In Orange county

HE IS A GOOD
He was professional, confident and my cataract surgery results were good.
in Costa Mesa, CA |
He was recommended by my husband's Dr. for cataract surgery. Dr. Younger's calm, friendly and very knowledgeable persona makes one feel comfortable and sure of any advise he gives after testing. Surgery was performed on both eyes with excellent results. His staff is friendly & knowledgeable about Medicare and other insurance plans. I was so impressed with his service and that of his staff that I too came in for an eye exam and chose their frames over a less expensive solution.

Dr Younger is incredible. In Palm Springs I thought I had good drs. 3 years ago I stopped driving, no one knew what was wrong! I came to Dr Younger, he explained exactly what was wrong, what type of cataracts I had & how he would fix it! He took care of me pre-op thru post-op, both eyes done & I feel like I've experienced a miracle. Everyone including Courtney and Heather, are great as well. The level of kindness, compassion, experience & competence is remarkable. I highly recommend Dr Younger!
