I had Dr Krad for the first time last week and had a great experience. He was very friendly and took time to explain everything very clearly to me. After having a peripheral vision test the front desk said he would call the next day if there were any problems with the results but he promptly called shortly after we left the clinic to assure me everything was fine. I appreciate this especially since a couple days later I would be out of the country and unreachable by phone. great experience.

Dr. Krad is a highly skilled Doctor. He spends what ever time it takes to explain his diagnoses and treatments. He did my cataract surgery and my vision is fantastic. I can't say enough great things about this wonderful Doctor!

I think Dr. Krad is a great eye Doctor !! Just had both eyes operated on for cataract extraction surgery with the new symfony intra ocular lens implanted. I can now read and see distanaces without my prescription glasses (a miracle). Dr. Krad is a miracle physician. The surgery was so easy. He is always happy to see you, always relaxed and spends enough time with you and doesn't seem rushed. Very thorough in his exam and extremely caring. I can't say enough good about him

The vision in my right eye was getting worse and was to the point I couldn't pass the driving test requirements. Dr. Krad diagnosed the problem at a cataract. Glasses weren't going to fix the problem. My cataract surgery was complex because I have had lasik surgery on both eyes and I have a stigmatism on the eye that required the correction. A special lens and machine was required to get my vision corrected. Before the surgery, I had 20/70 vision in my right eye. Now my vision is 20/20.
