    Dr. Ditkoff may be a skilled surgeon however he cannot communicate with his patients. He does not listen to questions and does not like to answer questions. He is actually rude - I was shocked how he treated his patients. It's unfortunate that a skilled surgeon can't also have a good "bedside" manner. I am a medical professional and I became afraid to ask him any questions. Now that my surgery is done, I will never return to his office. All his office workers are lovely.

    I love Dr. Ditkoff . Through the years he has preformed surgery on my eyes 4 times. He is very knowledgeable, attentive and caring. I find it hard to believe any negative reviews .
