Disgusted with the outcome of my surgery. Dr Flicker said surgery would eliminate my wearing glasses. Not so

Dr flicker is knowledgeable, caring and more importantly he listens to his patients. I had cataract surgery in both eyes and had worn glasses all my life. After the surgery I no longer need them!! My only regret is that I did not due this sooner but I was afraid as I knew what my Mom had gone thru many years ago. Dr Flicker understood but was instrumental in helping me dissipate my fears.

Dr. Jason Flicker - South Shore Eye Care Wantagh
I have been serviced by Dr. Flicker three times at his Wantagh NY office, and I have found Dr. Flicker to be a thoughtful and skilled medical professional who is very attentive to both my eyecare needs and my comfort with the eyecare process. He takes the time to explain my eye health situation and is patient in listening to, and addressing, my concerns. Similarly, even though this is a busy practice, the office and medical staff at the Wantagh location are cordial, respectful, and communicate a sense of caring about the patients. I would recommend Dr. Flicker and the South Shore Eye Care Wantagh office without reservation for anyone needing vision and eye care.

I had Dr. Flicker as my ophthalmologist after my cataract surgery. Dr. Flicker took his time in examining my condition, answered all my questions thoroughly and even gave me a free follow-up in-person appointment. I truly admire Dr. Flicker attention to detail, patience and generosity for his time. I will recommend him to my friends and family.

I had cataract surgery performed on my right eye approximately two years ago by another doctor. This surgery did not not go well. This doctor told me he would get as close as possible to 20/20. After the surgery my vision was 20/50 and he told me there is nothing he could do to correct the problem except wear glasses. I never went back to get my left eye corrected. After being referred to Dr. Flicker, I had the cataract removed from my left eye. Dr. Flicker told me he will try to get as close as possible to 20/20 and he did, I have 20/20 in my left eye plus he did the whole surgery. As far as I am concerned Dr. Flicker is an excellent surgeon. He and his staff are very professional, attentive and also make you fell comfortable when you visit his office. I wish I went to him for my right eye. I highly recommend him.

I went to see Dr. Flicker in the Massapequa office for an eye exam. As it turned out, I was ready to have cataract surgery. I wanted to go home & think about it. I called to speak to someone to get more information about the surgery dates available. They set up two appointments for surgery &two appointments for the measurements. I saw Dr. Flicker again & explained everything to me about what he was going to do & put me at ease about the surgeries. I had to go for a Covid test &went for the first procedure at the Surgicenter. Everyone there was so helpful & calming to me. Dr. Flicker did the first eye and it was a great success. He then performed the procedure for the second eye about 5 weeks later and both eyes are now healed and I am very happy with the great outcome. Dr. Flicker was so nice and explained everything I needed to know during both procedures. Everyone at the Surgicenter was so attentive &helpful. It was a great experience. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Flicker!

I have had several visits with Dr. Flicker including cataract surgery, which could not have gone better. He took the time to explain the procedure to me. I have since had several follow up visits and I am always pleased with the care.
