Dr zelko did cataract surgery and gave me my sight back. I greatly appreciate his expertise. His staff is the best.
in California |
My mother was visiting from out of town and lost her only pair of glasses. The doctor's office was closed for the holidays, but I left a general message for the office staff and left one with the exchange. Within 30 minutes, I had heard from both Dr. Zelko, driving in the mountains apparently, and one of his office staff, and they faxed me her prescription, gave me an overview of her vision profile, and suggested a 1 hour optical store. Made two calls and we had replacement glasses.
