What Patients are Saying about Dr. Zlotcavitch
I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Zlotcavitch and his amazing staff. I don't think I realized how much this surgery would change my life but everything he promised came true. I can see clearly, colors are so vibrant, I am no longer fumbling for my glasses and I would do it again in a second. The surgery and recovery was so easy and pain free also as promised. I am so thankful for Dr. Zlotcavitch and would recommend him 100%, when you are dealing with your eyesight you should only go with the best and he definitely is!
So far, the process has been amazing. Just got the second (right) eye done today. The staff, especially Ms. Melissa Wood has been phenomenal in reassuring and informing me about the process and reducing most of my stress. She has gone above and beyond to help me file my paperwork with my RMA/HSA. Dr. Leonid Zlotcavitch has a great, "bedside manner!" Never too busy to answer questions and explain things to me. And thanks to the entire staff for getting me through all this.
I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes. It was extremely depressing not to be able to see. After surgery, my vision was immediately better. My doctor, Leo Zlotcavith was truly a blessing to me. He is skilled and very easy to speak with about the procedures. I would highly recommend using him for any procedures with the eye. His staff was really helpful. Melissa coordinated my surgeries. She was extremely helpful and explained my benefits and cost throughly to me. I was very happy with the entire process. My vision has been restored and I no longer need glasses.
DR. Zlotcavitch done exactly what he said he would do to me and for me. I would recommend him to everyone that needs cataract surgery done. The staff every one of them are super caring, they made sure I had everything I needed before and after the surgery. The after treatment that I have received is great. Every one of the staff listen and answers all of my questions. I could not have found a better doctor for this.
Dr Zlotcavitch is a jewel of a doctor. He did absolutely everything he said he would do including calling me on a Sunday to check up on me and see if I was having any complications from my cataract surgery. He told me that he would do his best so that I would not need reading glasses, but he also told me that my astigmatism was so bad he was afraid I would need them anyway. My vision is 20/20 now and I do wear readers, but it is so great to see brilliant colors tiny details again. His surgical planner Melissa Wood is the best too. She went over all costs and details about the surgery and meds and helped me get my meds during this pandemic. She also called on Sunday to check on me and make sure I was not having any issues. If you are looking for an eye doctor and you choose Dr Zlotcavitch you will NOT disappointed, I promise. I've been a critical care nurse for almost 38 yrs and I would choose Dr Zlotcavitch again and again.
Dr. Zlotcavitch is truly exceptional! From the moment I entered the doors to the office, I felt welcomed, cared for, and completely at ease. Dr. Zlotcavitch has gone above and beyond to be sure that my complete optical health and wellness have been made first priority. He is extremely knowledgeable and personable. I never was made to wait. And if ever I needed to contact him or his staff, Melissa was always super speedy in responding by my inquiries, didn't matter if it was after hours or the weekend. The office is inviting, and his staff members are friendly and helpful in every way. Truly, I would recommend Dr. Zlotcavitch to anyone seeking answers to better their optical health and do so in a very personalized way.

AMAZING. That is the one word I'd use to describe Dr. Zlotcavitch. Easily one of the best doctors I've used in my life. He's professional, knowledgeable and empathetic. He removed my cataracts and completely changed my perception of the world. Prior to the surgery, colors had a yellow patina ....as if I was looking at a yellow post-in note or through a dirty window. Now, every color is vibrant. He also cares deeply for his patients - he called me on a Saturday night to see how well I was recovering from my surgery - what doctor does that nowadays? I completely and fully endorse him. You will be beyond happy with the results that he provides to your eyesight!! Thank you, Dr., Z!!
