in Crestwood, KY |
Dr Cassol did an excellent job with my eye surgery. I am pleased with not only him, but his entire staff.
in Louisville, KY |
I was very apprehensive about having cataract surgery and lens implants, but it has totally changed my life for the better. Dr. Cassol and his staff were very caring and efficient and the experience taught me I had nothing to fear from the procedure itself. I now see 20/20 with both eyes and I can resume playing tennis and driving at night without complicated glasses or contacts. YAY!!!

I have known Dr. Cassol for years and he has earned my utmost respect. Not only are his surgery skills cutting edge; but, he takes the time to train the upcoming eye surgeons in the field. Highest Recommendation.
in Louisville, KY |
I made two appointments to see him for an evaluation. The first time, I waited over an hour and left. The second time, I waited over 45 minutes and they called two people with later appointments before me. I went up to the desk and they said he had left for surgery. Then blamed it on me for not signing in when the sign-in sheet. There was no sign-in sheet. Really? Very unprofessional.

I recommended Dr. Cassol to my mother, who has now been seeing him for years. She looks forward to her visits, has never waited longer than 15 minutes, and has established a relationship with all of the staff. Not to mention, Dr. Cassol is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and empathetic. I have nothing but the greatest reviews for CassolEye. Check them out!
