Patient Comments (9)

From beginning to end, I have never been treated so kindly. Ms.Nina upfront greeted me by name and recalled our conversation over the phone when I scheduled. She was extremely busy but made sure to make me feel like I was her priority. As did everyone I came in contact with at my appt last month....more

Dr. Zaffater and all of his staff are absolutely awesome. Several other members of my family go to him, also. He has our complete trust. We are all in the medical field and would not go anywhere else for our eye care and eye surgeries!

Dr. Zaffater removed my mom's cataracts and she has been so pleased with the outcome. Her vision is better than ever and I certainly believe that Dr. Zaffater and his staff provided her with the highest level of patient care.
