Patient Comments (2)
Denver, CO |
Very pleasant and straighforward. His resident was also very lovely.
in Boulder, CO |
I saw Dr. Taravella after having unsuccessful cataract surgery from another doctor. Dr. Taravella explained what needed to be done to correct the problem, how long it would take to have the procedure done and how long it could take to recover. Of course he did not and could not guarantee the results. His explanation was totally understandable. The results were excellent. I have no hesitation in giving Dr. Taravella my highest recommendation.
