Had apt. with Dr. Kaufman on 3/14. He was very vague about when the cataract surgery would be done. I needed 3 boxes of drops for $60 + $35 co-pay. Apt. was made for 4/11 & paid $35 co-pay. I was made for an apt. 4/25 & paid $35 co-pay. Apt. was scheduled for 6/1 & paid $35 co-pay plus a $3.15 for something that was done on the 3/14/17 visit. Finally apt. made for the surgeries for 7/12 (rt) and 7/26 (lf). I am to pay $275 surgery center fees + $35 clinic fees for each surgery. CANCELLED!

Dr Kaufman is very thorough and helped me decide the best treatment for my eyes. I am very happy with the surgery he performed.

Eye surgeon, Dr. Matthew Kaufman, has an authentic, positive demeanor seldom found in the medical profession. His entire staff is an extension of that "patient first" attitude rendering North Georgia EYE an excellent facility to service our visual needs.

He asks too much money for laser cataract surgery...I went to other office of other doctors and was much cheaper. Don't go here.

He wanted so much money to do my mother's cataract surgery. We are poor and don't have money. Went to other doctors and was much cheat...my mom is happy. Go away from this doctor.

I received intense pressure to get cataract surgery immediately. The expensive procedure would have cost me out of pocket $. I obtained a second opinion and was told by a reputable doctor that I did not need surgery at this time. I also was very displeased when I received a letter in the mail which included a full page hearing aid ad. I had to research the origin of the sender since it didn't include a letter head. It came from his group in Gainesville. He had not checked my hearing. Creepy!

This guys a salesman...so is his parter, dr. Payne...funny name but not a fun group. They tried to get my mother to pay $3-4000 for cataract surgery and then we went to another doctor and it was done under insurance. Completely horrible...robber barons! Stay away...go anywhere else!

This was the fourth visit and just a follow up. Total time from arrival to departure was 3 hours 10 minutes, not a hint of an apology. Unfortunately this is not the exception. First three visits ranged from 2:20 to 2:40. I did raise my concern twice and was told by a very curt/ offended office manager that 2 hours was a standard visit. obviously scheduling way to many people and DO NOT CARE that there patients spent 3 plus hours there for a five minute interaction. Arrogance at its pinnacle
