in San Mateo, CA |
Dr Filer has always been a complete professional and I trust him with my eyes unconditionally. Both my husband and I see him regularly. My husband recently underwent cataract surgery in both eyes, and Dr. Filer completed this and after treatment in a most gracious and educational manner. The prognosis is excellent, and my husband feels he now sees 1000x better than ever. We have no complaints whatsoever
