Dr. Sanchez is a kind, caring doctor who makes sure you understand your treatment plan as well as the results of your tests. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Sanchez is an excellent physician not only with his skill set but he is kind and compassionate. I recommend him highly.

I immediately calmed down as soon as Dr Sanchez entered the room. A trusting casual style and an honesty I needed to hear. concerns remain: 1) How am I to live and work between the scheduled date of cataract removal of one eye and the other which is 1 full month and a half. 2) If I decide to get only the cataract removal, and not the astigmatism repair, will my eye sight improve at all? 3) If I put this off, how much worse my seeing get without surgery?

My wife and I have both had recent cataract procedures. Dr Sanchez not only knows his stuff but is one of the kindest doctors we've ever had. ????

He was very knowledgeable and explained everything well. Also gave me the option of deciding for myself, within my own time frame. I feel he is correct on cataract surgery and will probably go ahead with it in about 6 mos.
