in Norwalk, CT |
Dr. Oberman was able to take me as an emergency patient. His medical expertise was outstanding. Very easy to communicate with, made me feel very comfortable.
in Norwalk, CT (Silvermine) |
I feel that I am fortunate to have Dr. Jeffrey Oberman as my physician. I have known him since the 1970's as his patient. I have never EVER felt rushed, felt as one of many patients who was ushered QUICKLY thought the office. My appointments were considerate of my worries and my questions. Because I am a retired dialysis nurse I know that doctors and their staffs have many patients to see but, in Dr. Oberman's case (and that of his staff) I was treated as an individual not a syptomatic patient.

Perfect surgical result, excellent compassionate care with the utmost in professionalism! This includes all staff
Bridgeport, CT |
Dr. Oberman saved my eye-sight. I had cataracts in both eyes. My left eye was very difficult to see out of. With cataract surgery I am able to see without glasses to drive which I haven't been able to do for over 30 years! The surgery was painless and short with very little recovery. I would recommend seeing Dr. Oberman for any eye care needs.
Weston, Ct. |
I recently had cataract surgery. Dr. Oberman made it very easy. His explanations gave me a guide as to what to expect. I also have dry eyes. I appreciate that Dr. Oberman tried otc drops first before prescribing the expensive rx. My eyes are like new as a result of the surgery and the rx. I recommend Dr.Oberman highly.
in Ridgefield, CT |
Very thorough checkups and follow ups. Easily explains procedures. Shows concern for questions with facile answers.

Dr. Oberman and the entire staff at Opticare have been a pleasure. My vision is dramatically improved with the Cataract lens replacement and additionally my Astigmatism and near sightedness corrected too. Now, I only need reading glasses but none for distance and driving! It has only been a month since first eye and two weeks for second eye and now fully healed and taking drops only for another week and a half. Highly recommended Doctor!
