An incompetent, careless and highly negligent doctor. Stay away from this guy.
in Maricopa, AZ |
I had concerns over changes in vision in my right eye. I called Dr. Depenbusch's office on Monday and was seen on Wednesday. All of the staff;the receptionist,technical assistants,office manager and Dr. Depenbusch, were friendly and professional.They made me feel comfortable and a certain I was receiving excellent medical treatment. Fortunately,for me,my results were positive. I left feeling relieved and happy that I had found an excellent eye care facility.

Dr. Depenbusch performed cataract surgery on both my eyes, plus several other procedures to improve my vision. He is very knowledgeable and competent, and I recommend him without reservation.

I found the entire office friendly, courteous, and well mannered. Dr. Depenbush was a life saver for me. I was suffering with bloodshot, swolen eyes. We examined me and prescribed medication that cleared it up in a matter of days. My follow up appointment went equally as well. I highly recommend him and his staff.

in Chandler, AZ |
Outstanding physician. After being misdiagnosed by three other ophthalmologist Dr. Depenbusch was able to properly identify the problem and provide the medication to correct my problem. He took the time and outlined in writing the procedures and medication necessary to correct my problem. I would highly recommend this physician.

Dr. Depenbusch has been providing me excellent treatment over several years. He successfully treated my cataract and vision-limiting condition. After some 60 years of wearing eyeglasses, my eyesight was restored by Dr. Depenbush's use of intra-ocular lens implants. For several years now I've been enjoying wonderful vision.
in Apache Junction, AZ |
My husband and I both had Cataract surgery and Dr. Depenbusch performed this surgery. He did a fantastic job and it was simply painless. We can both see 100 % now and would definitely refer anyone to him. Dr. Depenbusch and his staff are wonderful and very professional.

Dr. Depenbusch I will highly recommended. He is excellent as well as staff. Siedah and Jason are both very helpful and kind. Everyone gives you the time you need. If I could give them 10 stars I would.
in Apache Junction, AZ |
I have had cataract surgery in both eyes, and also had YAG laser surgery in both eyes. I was also diagnosed with a retinal tear and the doctor got me into a retina specialist for immediate treatment. My vision is 20/20 without glasses. I can not ask for or expect any better treatment than that received by Dr. Depenbusch and his staff. My wife is now going to him, and it takes a LOT to convince her that a doctor is proficient.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr. Depenbusch did a first-rate surgery on a cataract in my right eye. The operation went smoothly. I was quite concerned about this surgery because I have a retinal hole in my left eye, which makes central focus impossible. So there could be NO problem in the right eye. As it turns out, even before getting my new glasses, my vision had markedly improved. Not only is Dr. D technically superb, but he is also personable. His staff, especially Siedah, Jason, and Maria were terrific. TEN STARS
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr. Depenbusch worked with me on getting the best lens correction for cataract surgery, since I had a concern about near vision for the art work that I do. He is professional, thorough and personable, and well respected in his field. I appreciated working with one expert surgeon instead of the four which I would have seen at another office. His scheduler and technicians were first rate as well.
in Chandler, AZ |
Dr. Depenbusch & his staff are AWESOME... I have recommend his to many of my friends, family, etc. Won't ever go to another Eye Clinic!! PERIOD!!
in Chandler, AZ |
I couldn't be more satisfied with Dr. Depenbusch's work. When I first started I was diagnosed with 20-70 vision. After he performed YAG surgery on my left eye and cataract surgery on right. My vision is now 20-20. No need for my old prescription eyeglasses anymore. And I now can truly enjoy the world with my new eyes! Thank You Dr. Depenbusch and staff for your wonderful gift of sight.
