I have been a patient with Dr. Sabates since 1973 treating detached retina, varying degrees of continuing sight loss including cataract surgery, lasik treatment and now wet macular degradation. Dr. Nelson has given me the best treatment options that have kept my vision alive to the point I have not needed glasses except until just recently with my latest episode with the macular degeneration. He fixed every problem I have had. This organization is the best and that includes all the staff.

I've been going to Dr. Sabates for many years, and have always felt that he takes very good care of me. His staff is always great, and he gives me plenty of time and attention himself. I feel that he stays completely current on vision issues, since he's on the faculty at the UMKC Medical School.
Thank you for your positive review for Dr. Sabates! It is appreciated!
