Patient Reviews
Nov 27, 2023
I had both my cataracts in both eyes removed by Dr. Josephson. One in July and the other in August of 2023. He is competent and I highly recommend him to anyone needing this surgery. I am pleased with my recovery and the results, and glad I had it done. I was very apprehensive about how the recovery would be and the pain etc. Everything turned out great with minimal pain. Thank You Dr. Josephson!
