Dr. Meskin did my cataract surgery in Milford. I stayed awake w/no sedation, (my choice) but had no pain w/excellent local anesthetic. So, I can tell anyone who is nervous about the surgery, I had a beautiful experience. The entire surgery took less than 10 minutes. He is a skilled, talented and knowledgeable surgeon, but also compassionate and caring. I wish I had more room here to compliment everyone there. Great doctor. Great staff at both places. Thank you for giving me back my clear sight!

Dr. Meskin was recommended to me by another ophthalmologist since he is a cornea specialist. Dr. Meskin took time to explain everything to me and also treated me in a very compassionate manner. He told me exactly what he was going to and why. He did not make me feel rushed and answered all of my questions (and I had a lot of them.) In my experience, it's not common to find this in a medical practice anymore.

I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes and can’t say enough about how well Dr Meskin and his staff took care of me. Everything was explained clearly and all questions answered fully. Absolutely everyone I came into contact with during the whole procedure was so caring and friendly. I was very nervous going into this as in the past I couldn’t even bear putting in contact lenses, but the friendliness and caring put me completely at ease. I highly recommend Dr. Meskin and his associates.

If your looking for an Opthamalogist, LOOK NO FURTHER!!! Dr Meskin is your man!! He and his team took care of both cataract surgeries that I was in need of and I was a difficult case. He is simply THE BEST!!! The patient compassion and concern I experienced & received was truly something wonderful to experience. I recommendedDr Meskin to my own family as well as friends & neighbors!!! We will use no one else! They're the best!

Dr. Meskin has taken care of my eyes for close to ten years. He is very caring and very knowledgeable. I trust him completely. He always clearly explains all options so we could make the best decision together. I had two procedures on each eye, all of which went very smoothly, with minimal downtime. The outcomes were better than expected and I now see clearly without glasses or contacts. I highly recommend Dr. Meskin.
