Patient Comments (1)
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Stelzner performed my cataract surgeries on both eyes at about 2 weeks apart. Each took about 20 minutes and I did not feel any pain or even discomfort. Just a little sting with the first application of the numbing drops, but that didn't even last a minute. I am very impressed with her professionalism and demeanor and highly recommend her and her team for anyone needing to deal with any sort of vision problem.
