I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Josh Glatman and his staff to anyone seeking a truly professional doctor who cares deeply about his patients.

Very professional run office, haven't had to wait more than 10 minutes. Compared to my "normal" ophthalmologist who makes me wait on average 2 hours. This year alone I've probably spent 40 hours waiting to see that guy. Dr Glatman takesthe time to explain what is going on with your eye(s) and gives you up front the chances for a successful outcome and what you need to do to achieve that. My former guy would just tell you "it will get better" when I would tell them I couldn't see. I finally just got tired of them acting like I was a nuisance and asked my optometrist to suggest somebody else. I saw Dr Glatman on Wednesday and was told I had a detached retina. By Monday I was in surgery getting it corrected. Other guy, took 9 months to get cataract surgery. They seem to run on quantity, not quality. Since I only have one set of eyes, can't afford to go with somebody who just looks at me like another number. If personal attention is what you want, Dr Glatman is the person to see.
