I am updating my angry response re Dr Ritsema after a painful complication during 1st eye cataract surgery. She did do 2nd eye and after the pain was relieved, I understood that minor yet painful complication can happen. She treated me very well, even knowing I put an angry review on display. I can't take it away, but I would at least like to amend. Pain can make people crazy! Thank you Dr Ritsema for all your help! Patty
