Dr. Orlin is a brilliant doctor. I've been a patient of his for over 20 yrs, and he has performed two successful surgeries on me. He takes his patients needs very seriously. I highly recommend Dr. Orlin. The downside-there is always a wait, because he has a million patients. Still, I wouldn't go...more

unsatisfactory. he missed an obvious complication of cataract surgery for 18 months after which it could not be corrected. he spends an average 3 minutes with his patients after the surgery was performed.
