I had cataract surgery with Dr. Segal for my distance and near vision correction and it was the best experience of my life! Everything went excellent and I am able to see without glasses or contacts after surgery and it is so wonderful! The surgery coordinator Elizabeth was very nice and pleasant and was very patient with me and explained everything to me well so that i felt comfortable having the surgery. I would recommend anyone who needs a great eye doctor to come see Dr. Segal.

The office staff has always been courteous and kind which made the experience much less stressful. I had cataract surgery and Dr. Segal called himself after surgery and that was reassuring and i felt that Dr. Segal genuinely cared about my wellbeing and I am seeing great after my cataract surgery! On the day of the surgery everything went really smoothly and the nurses at the hospital made me feel at ease and not scared.

Dr Segal Is superb in his function and his bedside manner. The office was great in examining me.

Everything else was a good experience.

Dr Segal diagnosed me with a condition and he referred me to another doctor and I have been treating this condition for many years and for the first time in years i am in remission. The doctors say its a miracle that I am in remission and if it wasn't for Dr. Segal finding out about this problem for me it could have been a lot worse for me and i am forever grateful.

I am so glad I found Dr. Segal! He always takes his appointments on time, which seems to be rare these days, but yet he still spends quality time with each patient. On one visit after taking pictures of the inside of my eye, he showed me the images on a large flat-screen monitor and then he took time to explain everything in terms I could understand. I really appreciated that. Everyone on his staff is friendly and helpful. They're all very professional, but genuinely down to earth, too.

A couple of years ago, Dr. Segal saw something in my eye and recommended that I go straight to my PCP and my PCP saw me and sent me straight to a Cardiologist. The Cardiologist saw that two of my arteries were blocked almost 99 percent. If it wasn't for Dr. Segal I could have died. Dr. Segal saved my life. He is a very good doctor and I recommend him highly to everyone.
