I recently had cataract surgery performed by Dr. Maltzman. I am 110% satisfied! Not only is he an excellent Ophthalmologist, he shows genuine care and concern for his patients. He went above and beyond to make certain he was doing all he could to repair my vision and I now have 20/20 vision again! I am so grateful and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a great ophthalmologist! I am very pleased with Dr. Maltzman's office overall, especially the staff! All great!
in Tucson, AZ |
I cannot rate Dr. Maltzman and his entire staff high enough!! His expertise is beyond anything I could have hoped for and his communication skills are unbelievable, he talked to me in a way that I didn't feel challenged , but also,he understood that I that I didn't attend medical school with him, this can be applied to the entire staff; I can honestly state that this was the best MEDICAL experience I have encountered in my 71 years!!! KUDOS to Dr. Maltzman and his entire STAFF!!!
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman has been my ophthalmologist for several years. I have seen almost every glaucoma specialist in Tucson, and, without a doubt, he is the best and most qualified for glaucoma surgery. He has the patience of a saint and he has no problem in telling you, "I don't know, but I'll look into it." He genuinely cares about his patients and he represents the best of what medicine has to offer. He performed a very difficult surgery on my eye and I am pleased with the outcome.I am truly grateful.
in Tucson, AZ |
I am a patient of Dr. Maltzman. I cannot say enough how wonderful he is. I was very apprehensive before my first of two cataract surgeries. He made sure that I knew what was going to happen and he was also very supportive. I was much calmer when I came back for my second surgery. It is easy to see that Dr. Maltzman truly cares and he provides the highest quality of care. I highly recommend him. Put your worries behind you and let Dr. Maltzman take excellent care of you also.
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman came highly recommended by an Ophthalmologist on the east coast. My cataract surgery went extreamly well and recuperation was smooth with no complications. The results are almost miraculous. I have near 20/20 vision! I read and work on the computer using a pair drugstore readers. Dr. Maltzman is a gifted surgeon, good with people and is a credit to the Eye Care practice.
in SaddleBrooke, AZ |
I just finished my 2nd cataract surgery (3 weeks after my first). What an amazing result for both. I had no idea the colors and sharpness I was missing. It was an amazing experience...staff was kind, attentive, courteous and professional. The surgery itself was extremely fast (15 minutes) and pain free. Both surgeries included drains, removal of the cataracts, insertion of an intraocular lens and on one eye a LRI to correct astigmatism. Dr. Maltzman has been a fabulous doctor.

Dr. Maltzman performed my cataract surgeries in December of 2016. I could not be more pleased with the level of care before, during, and after the surgeries. He thoroughly explained the procedure to me, and it went exactly as I expected. It was a painless procedure, and I have recommended Dr. Maltzman to a number of my friends.
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman always explains procedures and results so I can understand what has been going on. He spends the necessary time to be sure I am satisfied. He listens and tries to answer my concerns.

Dr. Maltzman removed cataracts in both my eyes and implanted Toric lenses. Wonderful results. Office staff great to deal with as was the doctor. Would, and have already recommended to others needing the surgery.

in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman has been my Ophthalmologist since I moved to Tucson nine years ago. He has also cared for five of my relatives during that time. When it came time to have cataract surgery, there was no question as to whom I would select to do the surgery. I could not be more pleased with the results. My vision is now 20/15 in both eyes. It is such a pleasure to drive with no glasses for the first time since my teen years. I will continue to recommend Dr. Maltzman to my family and friends.
in Tucson, AZ |
I have been a patient of Dr. Maltzman for several years. He has performed surgery on myself and my husband and both of us have been extremely happy with our results. Dr. Maltaman explained the procedures to us completely and made sure we were comfortable with the surgeries. I am a diabetic so I follow with Dr. Maltzman yearly. I am always pleased with how professional all the staff in his office is. I never feel like my appointment is rushed.
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman and staff took very good care of my needs I'm extremely pleased with the outcome of my cataract surgery. Thank you Dr. Maltzman and staff I can see again!!
in Saddlebrooke, AZ |
I recently had cataract surgery done by Dr. Maltzman at his new and modern opthomoligical surgical center. I cannot describe how totally impressed I was with his knowledge, gentleness and concern for a wonderful patient outcome. I am a registered nurse and not easily impressed but he goes over the top to insure the best outcome possible with no pain.
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman is an excellent Ophthalmologist! He is always attentive to patient-needs and regularly provides clear feedback regarding my glaucoma. It is evident that Dr. Maltzman is extremely knowledgeable and up-to-date on current research/information in his field. Importantly, he utilizes the most current instrumentation to assess and track my disease. Dr. Maltzman is an outstanding professional and I feel very fortunate to be in his care
in Tucson, AZ |
We have recommended Dr. Maltzman to many of our friends. He is very attentive, knowledgeable, and answers all questions we may have. He's young and brilliant in his field. We currently switched to another higher premium insurance just because Dr. Maltzman is in the network. He is worth every penny!
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman was very engaged and attentive. He answered questions thoroughly and provided alternatives clearly. I came to him for cataract surgery after a less pleasant experience with another provider. Due to prior Lasik correction, my course was somewhat complicated, but he and the rest of the staff were professional and responsive throughout the process. The whole practice seemed first rate.
in Vail, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman performed cataract surgery on both eyes. He was knowledgeable, took time to explain procedures, executed the surgery with a high level of competence, and was both caring and professional in follow up visits. He, his associates, and his staff all treated me with courtesy and respect. I'd highly recommend his services.
in Oro Valley, AZ |
My experience with Dr. Maltzman has been excellent. I believe he enjoys his work as a physician and caring for his patients. He is competent and very comfortable with his command of medical knowledge and skills. He explains the results of his tests and any recommendations very clearly. He listens carefully to any questions or concerns I have and responds in ways I understand. I am happy and satisfied to have Dr. Maltzman as my physician.
Tucson, AZ |
I am retired physician who recently saw Dr. Maltzman for my deteriorating vision due to cataracts in both eyes. Dr. Maltzman was concise and patient explaining the surgeries, which I subsequently went on to have. During surgery, Dr. Maltzman was supportive and careful, as he was in my post-operative visits. Post operatively my vision is 20/20 without glasses. Dr. Maltzman is not only competent, but he is kind. One could not ask for more in a physician.
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman has performed cataract removal surgery on both my eyes. I had positive experiences before/during and after both surgeries. He is not only proficent as a surgeon, this is a doctor who listens and takes the time to respond to your questions and needs. This is what anyone who cares about their eye health or health overall would like to have but does not always get. I think Dr. Maltzman is exceptional in this regard.
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr Maltzman is a true professional who has extensive knowledge of the eyes and problems/complications. He expertly performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes in July 2016 without any pain or complications. I highly recommend Dr Maltzman to my family, friends and anyone else if I got the opportunity. He is extremely approachable, courteous and an expert in his medical field. After serving 30 years in the U.S. Air Force and 10 years at the VA Hospital in Tucson, he's the best I've ever seen.
in Tucson, AZ |
I have been a patient of Dr. Maltzman's for 11 years. His ability, professionalism and genuine concern are remarkable. I recently encountered a situation which left an almost imperceptible tear in my retina. Dr. Maltzman caught this and referred me for laser surgery which corrected the condition. I have now fully recovered and believe his cautiousness and skill are to be credited. I encourage anyone to entrust their eye care to Dr. Maltzman!
in Marana, Arizona |
Dr. Maltzman is very professional, his examinations are extremely thorough, and he takes time to listen to my concerns and answers all my questions. I never feel like I am taking too much of his time, nor do I feel rushed. Dr. Maltzman is very caring and generous with his time. I have recommended Dr. Maltzman to a lot of my friends and co-workers. He is just the best!

Dr Maltzman has been my ophthalmologist for more than a decade. He and his staff have been consistently excellent in every way, during routine exams and, most recently, cataract surgery. I recommend him and his practice with great confidence.
in Tucson, AZ |
Very careful diagnostician, taking time to explain what and why he is performing a test, without causing anxiety. He is also conscious of patient expenses, noting only when a new prescription for corrective lenses is truly warranted.
in Oro Valley, AZ |
Dr Maltzman is a great doctor. He goes over all the test results with you and explains everything. He is very thorough and is genuinely interested in your eye health. The staff is great too.

Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman has been treating me for four years. In addition to his expertise, I recommend him on the basis of his businesslike but friendly manner, and despite his busy schedule, he never seems rushed. He is an excellent communicator, offering clear information about my particular form of glaucoma, and adding more context when I have asked. Eye problems can obviously cause anxiety, so the qualities I have listed are important to me. In summary, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Maltzman.

I have been a patient of Dr. Maltzman for about 7 years. I have found him personable and gregarious. He listens to his patients, and does not rush you out of the office. We travel at least 40 minutes to his office for our appointments. I will say without any doubt that the trip is worth it. This is one excellent Doctor. I have recommended him to my friends and co workers.

Tucson, AZ |
I no longer feel the need to travel from Tucson to New York to visit a top glaucoma specialist because Dr. Maltzman is my eye doctor now. He has performed cataract surgery on both my eyes and I have excellent results. For the first time in 64 years, I have 20/20 vision. It's truly amazing to be able to see clearly. My visits with Dr. Maltzman are stress free....he listens to my needs and performs the necessary checks quickly and expertly. I highly recommend him.
in Tucson, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman was the fourth (4th) Doctor I consulted about an eye problem, the other Dr's. came to a conclusion that was not consistent with the problem. After an examination and discusion we came to an agreement on a treatment that resolved the ploblem. I am relying on Dr. Maltzmans care to keep my eye health at good level.
in Oro Valley, AZ |
Dr. Maltzman is an excellent surgeon. He made my cataract surgery as fearless as possible. He explains everything thoroughly, gives you all your options and makes you feel confident. At the time of my surgery he implanted lenses for my monovision and today I have 20/20 vision at age 70 and no glasses. My surgery was 3 years ago and I have been back to see him for a checkup each year since and my vision has not changed at all since the surgery. I would recommend him to everyone!
