Excellent Doctor. I highly recommend.
Apex, NC |
I was extremely nervous regarding my cataracts. I went to multiple doctors for treatment, and ultimately chose Dr Busch. His no pressure consultation was very detailed and informative. He explained the procedure from start to finish, and also addressed complications that may arise. He made me feel more comfortable and aware of what my options were. I did the surgery, and I am forever grateful with my results!
