      I have been a patient of Dr Josephson for four years. He is a person who always cares about ones health and well being. You are definetly not a number here. He has operated on both my eyes at different times and achevied excellent results. I have complete trust in him and his skills as a surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone needing help and guidance on problems with their eyes.

      Needed a refill for eyedrops. Made an appointment and asked for the RX refill. Dr. Josephson was nice and caring. He checked to make sure my vision was okay and said the prescription should be on the way. I received the refill the day after the appointment. Yes, yes, yes, I would recommend him to friends and family. His practice is 10 out 10.

      Dr. Josephson is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors of any I've ever had. He'll spend time with you, explain everything, and follow up with a level of personal attention and care that is remarkable. Looking at his charitable works, I believe that this is because it's just who he is as a person. I respect many of my doctors for their knowledge and skill. With Dr. Josephson, I can add that I also respect him for his character.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
