Great Barrington, MA |
Wonderful doctor. He performed cataract surgery on my 94 year old mother who was very nervous. She loved him and wanted to go back to have her other eye done ASAP! Great result. Every interaction our family has had with this clinic has been good.

Dr. Gold has made himself available to speak with allied health professionals consistently. His expertise and care have benefitted both my husband and myself. I recommend him without reservation!
in Stockbridge, MA |
I had cataract surgery. The surgery went well, but he sold me on Restor lenses, which turned out to be totally inappropriate for my eyes. This was confirmed by the 3 other Dr.'s I saw afterwards, and the information that I read in the Ophthalmology magazine for eye Dr.'s. I have a astigmatism, never should have gotten these lenses. As a result, he got $1200 on top of Medicare's payment for the surgery, and I have dry eye, vision that's 3x's worst than I ever had, even with the cataracts!
