Dr. Jones was recommended to me by a specialist eye surgeon friend. I couldn't be more pleased with my care in their office, as well as both cataract surgeries. Dr. Jones set the tone, and All we're kind, helpful, considerate. I particular was grateful for surgery coordinator Marie, who coordinated both the surgeries for me. Thank you all!!!

Dr Jones is an excellent Dr. he called me evening of cataract surgery to see how I was doing. I never feel rushed with him, he has a very calm, positive manner. Marie was excellent to work with. I would highly recommend the laser option for cataracts.
in Sacramento, CA |
My experience with Dr. Jones could not have been better. He performed cataract surgery on both my eyes using the LenSx Femptosecond laser and the results were amazing. I have worn glasses since childhood and with the exception of close work such as reading, I no longer need them. Furthermore, working with Dr. Jones and his staff was a great experience. He carefully laid out the options and made sure I had a complete understanding. My pre-op and post-op experiences were also exceptional.

My introduction,treatment and follow up with him was very professional. Very thorough along the way and his acknowledgement of my well being was recognized.

Soft spoken, very kind, and cares about his patients.
Sacramento |
Dr. Jones was referred to me by my retina surgeon. He said if he needed cataract surgery, Dr. Jones would be his choice. What a great recommendation that was. Dr. Jones is kind, calm and an excellent doctor. And his staff is extremely helpful and efficient, too. If you should need surgery, Marie, who schedules your appointments is the best. She’ll help you through the process, again, with kindness and efficiency.
in Elk Grove, CA |
I couldn't be more pleased with the care and attention I received from Dr. Jones and his staff through the evaluation, eye surgery, and post-op cataract surgery. My vision is now 20/20 and I only need reading glasses.
in Shingletown CA |
Dr. Jones and his staff are professional, always pleasant, and provide excellent medical care for those who need eye care. I just had cataract surgery on my left eye using the LenSx laser and couldn't be happier with my results. Thank you so much Dr. Jones.
in Roseville, CA |
Very personable! Dr. Jones is thorough and takes his time with each patient.
in Sacramento, CA |
Dr. Jones recently performed my cataract surgery and I couldn't be more pleased. Prior to surgery, he provided extensive information regarding the procedure and the pros and cons of having cataract surgery. Once the surgery was scheduled, I was provided with detailed pre and post-op instructions. The surgeries went very smoothly and the results were fantastic. I haven't seen this well for over 60 years. I would highly recommend Dr. Jones to anyone considering cataract surgery.

Dr Jone s and office staff were fabulous and far superior to all other practices I have tried. Thank you!!
in Roseville, Ca |
I am very happy with Dr. Jones and his staff. I trust Dr. Jones completely. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. He is an excellent Doctor.
in West Sacramento, CA |
Dr. Jones did an absolutely fantastic cataract surgery - both eyes over two months, and I couldn't be happier. I now see things so crystal clear that I am amazed at what I had been missing. Before I was not correctable with lenses to 20-20, but now I am without wearing glasses. I do need to use reading glasses for very close range, but that was anticipated. Everything very professional and complete. I am totally satisfied.
West Sacramento, CA |
I never hesitated in deciding to have my cataract extraction done by Dr. Jones. I am very much satisfied with the results. I trust him completely.
in Sacramento CA |
He is very efficient and knowledgeable. He has been my eye physician since I moved from Virginia to California. He has also kept my cateracts growth under supervision. His bedside manner is friendly, but that of a true gentleman.
