Whole staff very professional, considerate. Wait times were sometimes long, but well worth it. Dr Malstrom himself was terrific. He did both cataract replacements with excellent results and no negative issues. He was very caring and reassuring as well as highly effective. Wish I could give him more than 5 stars.

Leslie Leben – May 15, 2021
Dr. Malstrom is fantastic. He is very talented and always had time to answer any questions. The whole staff at Eye Consultants and its surgery center treated me like I was royalty. One nurse was so comforting, I wanted to know if I could come back to see her when I was having a bad day . I wish I could remember names, but really, they were all fabulous. At no time during my cataract surgeries did I experience any pain or discomfort, not before, after or during the surgery.

P. Bellino – Jul 05, 2018
I chose Dr Malstrom to remove my cataracts based on my husband's experience 2+ years ago. He did an excellent job then and I know he will again. My office visits with him have been very informative. He's very easy to talk to and really wants you to ask questions. I've also noticed that he is highly thought of by his staff which is good to know as well.

Diane Morton – Jul 01, 2018
I would recommend Dr. Malstrom. However, I would add that I feel he could/should have given a greater explanation of my needs & the after effects of my surgery. I was totally unaware that my near vision would remain as it was before my cataract surgery. I was expecting the same result my husband had after his similar surgery.
