My cataract surgery with him was horrendous. That was in July. Here it is 4 months later and I have a loose lens, fragments of the cataract and pain. I am now in a different state and have an appointment with a well known surgeon. Stay away from him.

Very nice staff and the doctor was very thorough as to his findings. He didn't however make me feel like I am ok and I am going to seek another opinion. He did offer to call his office at any time and he will come into the office for an emergency all which is very good to know. He has a warm bedside manner. I just feel uneasy with his findings and want to get another opinion to having close end glaucoma.

1st time visit, Emergency visit. Dr. Nathan is a warm, caring doctor with a wonderful Bedside Manner. He took his time explaining the diagnosis and subsequent eye care. The ladies in the office were very knowledgeable and went beyond in trying to fit me in during my emergency eye issue. They were all wonderful. I would strongly recommend Dr. Nathan and staff!!
