One of the best eye doctors I have ever had. He performed cataract surgery and YAG on my eyes and the results have been amazing. Waiting time is long because everyone wants to see him but it's worth it!
in Pasadena, TX |
this man is among the best in the world, he truly cares about his patients and how others are treated. he always asks about your pain level. he knows his craft so well it is a pleasure to see him work. if you have an eye emergency i would rather have him than anyone in the world. he spent a whole night putting my wifes eye back together.got no sleep at all and didn't even mention it. this guy rocks. he has given her the gift of sight. we feel we owe him big.
