Dr eifferman did a wonderful job when I needed a partial cornea transplant. The outcome was wonderful and I found him very caring.

Have fuchs. Corneal transplant on 1 eye. Much better vision.
in Louisville, KY |
Under poor management. I received a bill from over two years ago. When I inquired what happened that I did not receive this sooner the person on the phone admitted his office failed to bill patients. I then learned that I had another bill that went to a collection agency although his office never sent me the bill and I had been to the office and paid my balance. Very shady to honest people!!!!!!!!
