A growth on my eye was examined by Mr. Raizman at Tufts, surgery at the New England Eye Center. The only thing I told Mr. Raizman "I don't want to watch this surgery." I was given Novocain around the eye and set up for an IV, but given no sedation. The procedure started I said I wasn't given anything, he proceeded anyway. I watched the knife cut a piece of my eye out and the tweezers remove it. I was the last patient of the day. He must have had an important schedule that day.

Dr. Raizman is an outstanding, talented, professional and kind eye surgeon. He performed cataract surgery on both my eyes this past spring. I am 100% pleased with the results. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking the best ophthalmologic care in the Boston area. A+ all the way!
