    Patient Comments (1)
    Initially,I trusted Dr. Ober. After 2 mos. of eye drops & an eye shot, Dr.Ober advised surgery for a SUSPECTED retina detachment.I regret not getting a 2nd opinion BEFORE my surgery! A victrectomy was performed & a scleral buckle inserted, during which Dr. Ober stated my retina was NOT torn. At 4 weeks I knew something was wrong & got a 2nd opinion. My retina had torn POST-surgery,needing a 2nd surgery! I sought a more exp'd surgeon for my 2nd surgery, and have had no problems to date.
