I had cataract surgery and prescription lense implants with Dr. Urso. I was seen at both locations and he and his entire staff were excellent from beginning to the end. I had no problems and can see without glasses for the first time since I was three years old and I am now sixty nine. I would recommend Dr. Urso and his staff to everyone.
in The Woodlands,TX |
Dr. Urso performed a surgery for my son for an entrapped eye muscle that caused double vision. Our experience with Dr. Urso could not have gone any better. Dr. Urso is a caring & attentive dr. He was recommended to us for his expertise in his field. I feel that we found the best doctor in the Houston area for this procedure. If you are looking for an eye dr, I think you would be highly satisfied with any of his services.
