in Rochester, NY |
Dr. Lindahl & the office professionals are excellent. He even brought me a cup of coffee after the procedure. My only concern is the cost . I was quoted $2,400 ($1200 per eye) for cataract surgery and the overall cost is over $7,500.00 . If I knew it would have cost this much, I would not have had it done here.
