What Patients are Saying about Dr. Brody
Robert A. Foreman, Sr
Why Did I Wait SO-OOOO Long.? The entire staff and Dr Jason S. Brody handled everything VERY warmly and professionally, ... including me. What I perceived to possibly be a painful experience, turned out to be a short-lived, minor inconvenience. I now have 20-20 vision in both eyes and aced my GA driver's license vision test. There is no requirement for glasses anymore, ... to drive at 75 years of age.! Everything is brighter, clearer, ... and the COLORS..! Now, anytime I hear someone speak about THEIR cataracts (or vision problems), I tell them about MY story / Dr Brody / and the Woolfson Eye Institute.
Very professional medical staff and Dr. Brody was very calming and nice. His assistant, Yonairi was also very informative and helpful ! Four weeks later I don't need readers at all, distance has always been excellent! However, I do have halos around lights at night time . I'm told that they will subside now that my regiment of eyedrops are over with! I would definatley go through this operation again especially now I won't be getting any cataracts anymore! I feel younger not needing readers any more!!!!
