in Anaheim, CA |
Well recommended by family Doctor, Doctor Dugel, diagnosed, Cataract, that my previous Ophthalmic Doctor did not even suggest. First surgery was very successful. No pain. 20/20 vision in 10 days. Very good care and very informative instructions. Office staff all very cordial and professional. Would highly recommend to all. Eager to have my next Eye surgery . Little Mary Hospital is the best. Would encourage all over 60 for examination for Cataract and surgery at Doctor Dugel. Feel young again
Doctor Dugel is professional, kind and extremely knowledgable in his area of care. For my urgent eye care needs, I was shown respect and understanding and as a new patient it was vital for me to trust my doctor. The friendly office staff fit me into the busy schedule the same day (as well as a follow up visit) and I appreciate all of their efforts to support me. I would highly recommend Dr. Dugel and am very grateful to have been referred by the Urgent Care facility in Manhattan Beach, CA.

On Tuesday, January 24th, I had an appointment with Dr. Dugel. I had seen my primary the day before with my sudden right peripheral vision problem. My primary referred me to Dr. Dugel as well as my good friend. I want to thank Dr. Dugel for his expertise and concern about my eyesight. He was very personable, informative and genuinely cared what I was experienced. He went beyond trying to find a solution. I didn't have a vision problem, but he immediately got on the phone to find me help.

Dr. Dugel recently performed cataract surgery on both eyes. During the pre-surgery visits he explained exactly what was involved with this surgery. He was very reassuring and thorough. The surgery was painless and easy. I am so happy with the outcome. I can now see without glasses. Sorry I waited so long to have this procedure done. I would like to add that everyone in his office was cordial and accommodating.
