Patient Comments (1)
in Pocatello, ID |
My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Fornarotto for almost 21 years. He is very serious about a patient's eye care and explains whatever problem or question you have. He removed cataracts off both my eyes in the fall of 2009 and after next week, he will have performed the YAG procedure on both my eyes for secondary cataracts. He's professional, patient while explaining different eye problems we've had and we both feel very well taken care of. He's a real treasure to Pocatello!!
