I had to see Dr. Benedett after a complication due to cataract surgery. I was able to get in very quickly and Dr. Benedett performed my surgery one day after cataract surgery and was successful in correcting my issue. He is extremely professional and caring. I was very happy with him and his staff. I would highly recommend him!
