What People Say About Dr. John Cooksey, MD
Reply
Dr Cooksey did a cataract surgery on my husband, leaving him with a deformed pupil, a damaged cornea and legally blind in that eye. My husband has had 1 surgery to reposition the introcular lense, and is having a cornea transplant soon. Please, please do not let this man do surgery on you or anyone you care about. He tried to blame us for his bad work and never would admit the damage he has done. tTis is a very poor excuse for an opthalmologist and a menace to those he should be helping.
