I’m 80 yrs. old and from Brazil. Because I do not live in the U.S., Dr. Jovkar insisted that I complete a full physical prior to surgery. That’s the way he is: overly careful and 100% responsible. I felt great, so didn’t understand why I needed a physical; but, the more I thought about it, that’s exactly the kind of person I wanted to fix my cataract problems. Every step of the operation and recovery procedures were fully explained. By the way, he did a great job and I’m back enjoying Brazil!

After my last appointment February 2015, I am still confused about professional eye care. I've had very good eye exams in the distant past. Jovkar did not adequately address my questions. After less than ten minutes of actually seeing Dr. Jovkavr for first first time, he set me up for two immediate cataract surgeries. I went home overwhelmed. Then I cancelled surgery. My eyes actually improved as I started to take eye vitamins. I passed driver's test. A I do not have an eye care provider.
