Dr Kaiser fixed my retina holes in both eyes. I and my family are so happy, I can not stop dancing! He and his staff are the best. i can reAD, DRIVE, AND DO FINE NEEDLEPOINT again. I had trepidation about anyone touching my eyes. He and his coworkers were so knowledgable that they overcame my reluctance and They fixed me. Thank you all. and a special shout out to Mr Light, who I praise with great praise for keeping me focused on the joy of seeing. Thank you all. respectfully Peter Balmat

Horrible professional etiquette. I could only hope that someday he gets the same treatment from a doctor that he gave me....
