Patient Comments (1)
in New York, NY |
It would be impossible to state how great this Doctor and his staff are. Doctor Gibraltar replaced my lens with cataract surgery. He performed the surgery one eye at a time. It was like the movie "Wizard of Oz." For the first time in as long as I could remember that I could see vibrant color. He was great, professional and I could recommend no Doctor higher than I recommend Doctor Gibraltar. The office personnel in his office are outstanding -- better than any other doctor's office.
