I had a stent put in and cateratics removed . He made it so easy I'm greatful for him making my experience a pain free one. Thank you so much I'm now ready for the other eye. I recommend Timothy Khater to anyone that has glaucoma like I do and needs a good ophthalmologist he's you guy.

Overall an excellent experience. I did have a problem with the first cataract surgery when I chose to use a generic version of one of the medications that he prescribed. It was quite a difficult problem but Dr Khater guided me through it and the problem is resolved to my satisfaction.
