From the moment I walked into Dr. Lamensdorf's office, I felt in very good hands. The office staff was most courteous, the woman who performed the first part of the visit explained everything and what the tests would show, and then Dr. Lamensdorf came in and made me feel very much at ease and that I was in the hands of a most competent eye doctor. He carefully reviewed all the work that had been done up to that time and asked for one additional test that was immediately performed. All v good

My cataract surgery was a complete success. I have the Restor Lens in my right eye and the Toric Lens in my left eye. Dr. Lamensdorf did a wonderful job and is a gifted surgeon. I have eliminated the use of glasses for all activities. The postoperative care from Dr. Lamensdorf and his caring staff has been excellent. The personnel at the surgery center were very accommodating as well. I do not hesitate to give Dr. Lamensdorf my top recommendation.

His ego causes him to make recommendations that are medically wrong. He is pompous and refuses to accept he makes bad decisions in his recommendations. He almost caused my wife to have permanently bad eyesight after inserting lenses that should never have been even contemplated. Two second opinions after his initial surgery informed us of this. Lenses replaced by another surgeon and my wife can see again.
I have been a Cataract surgeon for over 30 years and have never implanted or replaced an incorrect lens. That is a terribly unfortunate comment and one that also discredits my terrific staff who assist me in lens selection. Our results far exceed the national average (98 percent success vs 80 percent) due to our focus on individual care and analysis. We specialize in advanced technology lenses which were placed in Mrs. Petrus' eyes. When we last saw Mrs. Petrus, she saw 20/20 and 20/25.

He is a very nice man, very professional.
Derisive, abrupt, pompous
