Patient Comments (1)
in Cherry Hill, NJ |
Very knowledgeable and experienced. I have Glaucoma and he,s been with me for years so I know I can trust his opinion. Unfortunately I developed an infection after cataract surgery and Ray treated me as if I was his son, with way too much TLC. He's a real old time doc who actually cares about the patient.
