I had cataract surgery in both eyes ultimately, and I a very happy patient. I experienced degraded vision in both eyes in the last couple years, and after researching available doctors, chose Dr. Maltzman's office. From the first visit he made me feel comfortable with what my options were, with absolutely no pressure to get surgery or obtain glasses to improve my vision. I opted for the surgery and I'm glad I did. My vision is dramatically improved. So much clearer, brighter, and can see sharper details. It's priceless really. Dr. Maltzman and his staff did an excellent job in all phases of this experience. There are very good doctors out there, but I give extra praise to Dr. Maltzman for his ability to communicate with clarity, allowing time for any questions and further discussion as needed. And of course his excellent skills. I would highly recommend him to anyone with eyecare concerns.

Efficient and very concerned with your comfort and relaxation during all phases of the surgery procedure are good descriptions experienced with my operation. In Pre Op, I was prepared with eye numbing drops, and fitted with an IV to facilitate anesthesia administration. I was wheeled into the operating theater, and all procedures were comfortable, and not at all like I had incorrectly anticipated.. They are very sure to inform you of everything you have to do prior to, and after the surgery, and provide a packet of written information to ensure your understanding. The surgery was painless, quick and efficient and over before I knew it, the surgery was over, even though I remained conscious during the whole procedure. After care was efficient ending in a call at my house after arrival. Follow up appointment the next day to make sure all was ok. Information packets ensured I took the proper drops. Dr. Maltzman is the best - 20/20 vision when I was told only 20/30 was possible.

As I pondered the need for cataract surgery, I searched the internet and discovered Dr. Maltzman. He has impeccable credentials, and he proved to be the excellent surgeon his credentials purported. He put me at ease when explaining the procedure for the operation, and he demonstrated his skill in the operation itself. The follow-up care was through and the staff professional. The whole process went smoothly with no problems at all. I can now see amazingly! I highly recommend Dr Maltzman!

I have had Dr. Maltzman for many years as my ophthalmologist. He has always been highly professional and very helpful in my decisions about my eyes. I just had two PanOptix trifocals lenses implanted with cataract surgery. I was thrilled with the instant results. The surgical center is run efficiently and professionally with very caring staff. I had total confidence in Dr. Maltzman.

Needed a short-notice second opinion for the military and Dr. Maltzman’s office was able to fit me into the schedule quickly. Dr. Maltzman is friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. He took the time to explain my exam results in understandable language and he went above and beyond in providing documentation for the military. I highly recommend his services and I’ll return to him should the need arise in the future.

Dr. Jeffrey Maltzman's office and surgical center is like a well oiled machine. Everything runs on schedule, surgery staff are excellent, helpful, caring and most of all work well with the doctor. I had a problem that resulted in a change of how they would freeze the eye. It was handled professionally and did not result in a delay of the surgery. Next eye they had all the information and proceeded without any questions. I was very happy with the care I received and do not hesitate to recommend him at all.

Dr. Maltzman is a truly caring and gifted physician. He and his entire medical team provided outstanding care throughout the time we had together... From Heather having to reschedule so may patient procedures because of mandated COVID-19 closures Executive Orders in Arizona...to the actual pre-op and post-op coordination....all were effcient, effective and quite excellent! I especially remember Cindy, Kim, SkyAnne and Susan because of their clear, kind and calmly stated communications with me throughout both surgeries. Both cataracts surgeries exceeded my most positive expectations and the outcomes are spectacular. I can see more clearly than ever before. I highly recommend Dr. Maltzman and his team. All the best!

After two successful cataract surgeries in October, 2019, I can absolutely recommend Dr. Maltzman and his entire staff who were thorough, caring, professional and highly skilled. All facets of the procedure were explained clearly and were supported by well-written handouts for further clarification at home. The clarity of my vision now is astounding! I am truly thankful for this experience which was worry and pain free.

Dr. Maltzman was my surgeon for cataracts (both eyes). He listened to, and was able to address any concerns I had ... he made me feel comfortable... that applies to him in surgery as well. His surgical staff is terrific, and you can tell they're a great team, under his lead. I knew I was in good hands! Thank you, Dr. Maltzman (and staff)
