Dr. Jones had to deal with my extremely challenging circumstances. Laser could not be used, so Dr. Jones had to use his precision and talent to operate on my cataracts by hand. What a complicated situation to take on, and he got it done. I will never trust anyone else with my eyes! He is so compassionate, caring, and kind. . He really empathized and helped me through it all. I can’t imagine anyone else accomplishing a great outcome like he did, under the difficulty my case presented!

My elderly mother was treated with the utmost kindness and care here from start to finish, from the front desk staff person, to the sweet employee Cindy who coordinated her benefits, to Dr Jones, and lastly Marie the surgery coordinator. All were extremely professional and helpful and really made the experience comfortable and pleasant. Thank you all.

I had cataract surgery with Dr Jones using the standard procedure. On my post op day I was so happy because my left that had the cataract removed was seeing 20/20. Everything was crisp and clear and the colors were beautiful! I could see again! Dr Jones was very helpful by answering all my questions. He is open and honest and lets you make your own decisions. He helped me understand what to expect and relieved a lot of my anxiety. I am trusting him to do my other eye in the future and look forward to seeing out of that eye with the same clarity. Thank you Dr Jones for your professionalism and thank you for making me feel at ease. All of the staff at the surgery center were wonderful! They calmed my fears also and were kind and informative. I couldn't have had a better experience!

Dr Jones performed cateract surgery for me a few weeks ago. When he first examined me I already knew the issue at hand. He confirmed the issue and scheduled the corrective surgery. He told me what to expect from the surgery and how to prepare. Everything he told me was on point in every way. I could not be happier with the results. He is very professional and yet very kind and compassionate. Dr Jones' staff if very professional and kind. One person I need to mention is Marie, surgery coordinator. She was very patient and took a good amount of time with me to make sure I knew what was going to happen and cost involved. I had questions prior to surgery and she was always ready to help me. Thank you to both Dr. Jones and all his staff.

It is very likely I would recommend Dr. Jones to family and friends. In fact, I shared his business card with a stranger who was looking for a good ophthalmologist. I chose Dr. Jones on the recommendation of a friend. Scheduler and staff person, Marie, was very helpful in finding me a more suitable date for surgery.

Excellent, kind, professional, answering every question, down to earth surgeon. The Cataract surgery was a great success. The follow ups were done in time. Fees were also extremely decent. Highly recommended. The hospital staff, including the anesthesiologist were very friendly and professional. I felt very comfortable going to surgery. Will follow soon with the surgery for the other eye.

Dr. Jones is a consummate professional. He was highly recommended to me by Dr. Stephen Wong..........which proved to be an exceptional recommendation. Dr. Jones and his highly competent staff (Receptionists, Medical Assistants, Surgery Coordinator "Marie", etc.) all make you as a patient feel extremely comfortable and confident knowing that you are being provided the best medical care and assistance that is available............This is definitely the "A" Team for Ophthalmology care!
