When my husband called to make an appointment because he felt his vision was getting worse "Dr." Verra told him to "get his diabetes in check and to then call back for an appointment. He never even asked what his A1C level was. His diabetes has always been under control. He decided to see another ophthalmologist and found out his problem is due to cataracts that are to the point that he needs surgery. Verra told him 6 months ago that he had the beginnings of cataracts. No trust in him now!

I just had my cataracts removed and can't say enough about Dr. Verra. I have worn glasses for reading for 25 years and glasses for distance for 15 years. My surgery went so well with very little pain or issues. I now have 20/25 vision and just need 2.5 readers. That is absolutely amazing! He is the best! It is a eel run office and all of the staff are true professionals. I would highly recommend Dr. Verra and his staff.
