Huntington Station, NY |
Besides being a true professional Dr. Krawitz is a concerned caring doctor.

i recently had cataract surgery with Dr. Krawitz and everything was handled in an excellent fashion, from the pre-op prep, scheduling and the execution of the procedures. I had lenses implanted in both eyes to correct my vision and i am very happy with the results.

Dr. Krawitz is very thorough with his examination and spends significant time answering questions and explaining treatment. The same goes for his staff as well.
in Greenlawn, NY |
Dr. Krawitz is the epitome of professionalism, technical expertise, and human caring and concern. I praise him in very large measure. He treats patients with utmost respect. He suggests procedures he feels will be beneficial but does not press the patient to accept the procedure until such time that the patient decides to do so. Dr. Krawitz has successfully performed a trabeculoplasty, and two cataract operations for me. I feel I am receiving a most superior quality of eye care.

I'm thrilled! With my new multi-focal lenses, each eye two weeks apart, my glasses are history. My vision in each eye was great within two days. Now, only one month since my last surgery, I have 20/20 vision for distance and BETTER than that for reading. It's a miracle! Thank you Dr. Krawitz! Your work is amazing!

Very satisfied with my cataract surgery. Painless and very happy with my vision.
