United, we form a team of experienced and highly skilled surgeons offering dentistry, ENT, general surgery, ophthalmology, orthopedics, pain management and podiatry. We are proud to be named a Cataract Innovator, one of less than twenty centers in the United States recognized for superior patient care.

My fiance was supposed to have cataract surgery Friday. He's been waiting to get this cataract surgery since January. He was sent home first time from this center. The second time his surgery was canceled for Friday. Doesn't matter because he wasn't cleared for the surgery by physician assistant because his A1c was an 8. His primary doctor did not require blood work the first time. He went to office upset and they did not give him an explanation unprofessional. I'm a nurse I called the center to ask what were the risk of cataract with an A1c of 8? Which has nothing to do with cataract I was not on the list to receive info which was fine it's Hippa violation. He let's me handle everything so It doesn't matter. The nurse I talked to had an attitude so I returned the favor. He has to walk around with cataract for months again. Everytime he looks forward to surgery here its always something the fact that it was canceled. He will be switching his doctor and will be receiving surgery soon again!
