Dr. Nattis did not inform me of the possible negative effects of multifocal lenses used in cataract surgery. The bottom line for me is that nothing is clear and crisp and I need a flashlight to read a menu or a magazine. The cost was astronomical and is not covered by insurance. I am no better off than those who chose standard cataract surgery which is covered by insurance.

Dr. nattis is an amazing surgeon and doctor, I wouldn't have gone to anyone else to have lasik performed. Not only did he do in depth testing to ensure I was a candidate, when it was finally time for me to have the procedure done he made me feel so calm and I knew I was in the right hands. He talked to me through every step of the procedure as it was being done and personally called me that night to make sure I was feeling ok. The procedure wasn't as scary as I expected thanks to Dr. Nattis!

Had cataract surgery. Results excellent. Very happy.

Dr. Nattis performed Lasik on both my eyes. Both he and Dawn (the coordinator) answered all my questions - most even before I asked them. He explained the procedure clearly and completely. And if you are not a 'good candidate' he won't perform the procedure-so there is little risk of complications,During the procedure, he talked me through each step so I knew exactly what was happening. They removed the stress from the entire process. I recommend him highly for anyone who is considering Lasik

Dr. Nattis and his staff saved my vision! I don't care how long a physician sees me as long as it is accurate. These guys know their stuff -- and will spend as long as needed with you to make you comfortable
