I really can’t say enough good things about Dr. Mackool Sr. Faced with a complicated cataract surgery, he took my concerns incredibly seriously and his experience with even the most complex procedures put me at ease. Along with being skillful, he was also incredibly kind and reassuring to this very nervous patient. Best news of all- my vision went from 20/200 to 20/30. I will always be grateful to the MacKool Eye Institute.
