Patient Comments (5)
in Bradenton, FL |
Very professional, very thorough, and understanding. Performed cataract surgery, and did a terrific job. He was very detailed in his explanation of the procedure, and what to expect afterward. The staff at Coastal Eye, is very well trained, and professional.
in Englewood, FL |
I wore glasses/contact lens since I was 9. Now I don't need glasses at all for my daily activities after the cataract surgery. Dr. Edelman is very cautious and attentive. He ordered a couple of additional tests. I don't mind that, better safe than sorry. He is a great surgeon. No problem with recovery at all. I'm completely satisfied with his work. Michelle and Ellison at the institute are most helpful.

I cannot speak highly enough about Dr Edelmans expertise, compassion, knowledge, and kindness. I owe so much to him. The entire group and staff are the epitome in eye care. God Bless you Dr. Edelman

Excellent. Listens and explains what he recommends.
in Bradenton, FL |
Did not hurry through visit. Thorough, patient and respectful enough to take time to order two more assessment tests for evaluation. Extremely pleased with this first visit.
