Summary: A new lease on life!
September 28th, 2016
Thanks to the combined insight from Dr. Bennett and Dr. Singal, I can see again with the removal of a cataract in my right eye at 42 years old!
This was such a difficult decision to make as to what lens would provide me the best quality of life and "hands down" the multi focal Restore lens is the best decision that could have been suggested to me! I feel like a new man!
I knew from the beginning I was in the right place but had no idea how well I would be taken care of by the doctors and the staff. Being pretty nervous on the day of surgery, a lady by the name of Carol who works closely with Dr. Bennett did an incredible job of easing my concerns. And the young lady by the name of Rachel who works closely with Dr. Singal is one of the most friendly and caring persons you will ever meet! I truly feel that Bennett Bloom really cared about my outcome and that I was just not another guy off the street with a bad eye to fix.
It is not often you deal with physicians who not only take time, but take all the time you need to address your options and ease your concerns. With these two doctors, I never felt that there was another patient waiting and they had to go. They truly took the time to review my case and discuss with me at length what I should do. I am so impressed and so thankful I chose to go to Bennett and Bloom for this important surgery in my life. These two doctors and their staff are absolutely incredible!!!!
