Patient Comments (2)
in Torrance, CA |
Dr. Marsico performed cataract surgery on Tuesday, February 14, 2017. It was a posterior subcapsular extremely dense cataract in my left eye. Since birth I have vision only in my left eye. I was going blind. It was crucial to find a highly skilled doctor. I found him in Dr. Marsico and was confident my eye was in great hands. He performed a successful surgery. I see vibrant colors and my dim world is over. Dr. Marsicio is a gifted surgeon . He gave me my sight and life back.

He is arrogant and not willing to discuss arrangements
