Patient Comments (2)
in Newcastle, CA |
Excellent doctor/surgeon! I had elevated scarring on my left eye, and she did a great job smoothing the surface surgically, and checking that the healing was going well. She also informed me to test for glaucoma yearly due to large optic nerves (something another eye doctor failed to mention). Under her care, I always felt confident in her wealth of knowledge. Some processes could be explained just a smidgen better, but when I knew what to ask, she always has satisfactory, informed answers.
in Napa, CA |
ON March 19, 2015, Dr. Sierra, M..D. re-did our mother's (89 Years of age) right eye Cataract which was incorrectly done in Napa, CA. Because the operation was so complex due to the original (Napa) botched process, Dr. Sierra, M.D. collaborated with an associate Retina Specialist. Our mother is alive and well with excellent vision and will be celebrating her 90th Birthday on March 01, 2016.
