When my Optometrist suggested I see Dr. Lichtenstein for my cataracts I asked she recommended him and she replied: "Because he's the doctor that other doctors go to when they have problems.". What a great answer. During my examination visit Dr. Lichtenstein spent time reviewing my numerous complications and his approach to counter these issues. I extremely confident in his approach. I've now had both surgeries completed and I'm seeing 20:20 in both eyes. It's a miracle!

Does not like to spend time to alleviate fears. Surgery is impersonal and factory like. Money maker. Recommends upgraded procedures like laser but guess he uses it whether you pay the extra or not. Staff does most of the screening and not sure of their qualifications.

Dr. Lichenstein is one of the warmest, kindest doctors I have ever met. After having eye surgery when I was younger, I was terrified to have cataract surgery. He could not have been more understanding of my anxiety and put me completely at ease. It was also clear that he was extremely competent. When you are a patient this is exactly the type of physician you hope and pray you have. I am grateful for this man and his amazing staff. My surgery went perfectly and my vision improved drastically.

Dr Lichtenstein is at the top of his profession. As a Dentist that practices full time I picked one of the best specialists in the Delaware valley maybe even the east coast. My procedure with Laser assisted Cataract surgery was effortless and after a weekend I was able to go back to treating my patients the following Monday morning. The results were amazing: my vision is 20/20,it is crisp and the healing was quick and uneventful. The skill level of Dr.Lichtenstein is unsurpassed .Thank you again

Never less than 1 hour wait. Usually more ... And they don't care about it at all. Appointment times are meaningless Maybe a good doctor but they sure dont know how to run an efficient office Find someone who cares about the patoents time
