Patient Comments (2)
in Cathedral City, CA |
I have had both eyes worked on and cataracts removed by Dr. Guss. This last time I had my left eye done. A span of 6 1/2 years between the right eye. This time he recommended a new laser proceedure before. I took it. He told me he would be with me every step of the way. And he was. He is a good man, a great doctor and cares for his patients. I would and have already recommended him to friends.
