30/08/13 5 5 5 5 My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Aizuss at Ophthalmology Associates of the Valley for many years. We both have the utmost confidence in him and his professional staff members. You always feel that you are very important to them and they always take extra time to answer your questions.The professional treatment we receive at his West Hills and Encino offices is always exemplary. Dr. Aizuss recently performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. The whole process, from appointment coordination, lens measurements, the surgery itself and follow up visits was handled flawlessly by the team so that I never felt alone in the process. I am thrilled with the final results and can now see without glasses. Based on our experiences, we would highly recommend Dr. Aizuss to attend to all of your eye care needs.

12/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dear Dr.Aizuss, I can't thank you enough for all of your care and expertise. I have never experienced a more thorough, conscientious doctor whom I have felt comfortable with and trust. It was an easy decision to choose you for my eye care and shortly after my examination my eye surgeon. After my cataract surgery I truly can see how much detail in my life I was missing. Not only have I gained vision, but also knowledge which you have clearly provided my with so I may continue my future with healthy eyes. I'm very pleased and forever grateful knowing I'm in the best of hands. I look forward to seeing you again. Camille VB

04/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Aizuss is one of the most caring doctors I know. Last Sunday, my eye was red and itchy. I called his answering service and was surprised when I was instantly connected to him. Dr. Aizuss listened to everything I said and then suggested that I meet him at his office. And this was on a Sunday! I went to his office and he examined my eye, prescribed eye drops which I immediately picked up. I do believe that any other doctor would have seen me on Monday at best. Thank you, Dr. Aizuss, for being my eye doctor 24/7.  Respond

17/12/12 1 2 1 1 The worst examination and result in decades, actually ever. I came for a yearly check up for my vision and I wear contact lenses. I wondered if I needed a new prescription. This was covered by my insurance company which is why I went to the Dr. Aizuss in the first place. It was my first visit. I loved my other opthamologist but she did not work with my insurance company. I thought I would save money. After the most painful examination I have ever had, Dr. Aizuss would not give me a prescription but insisted I visit their optometrist who was not on my or possibly any insurance plan and it would cost $700.00 for an examination for contact lenses, that would not include the contact lenses. This is the most I have ever been ask to pay. I will never go to this practice again. It was truly an awful experience. This is the first time I have ever written a review. It will probably be the last time.

22/09/11 5 5 5 5 Great bedsie manner. Dr. Aizuss exudes confidence. While he is not afraid to perform a procedure he is also very conservative in the approach taken. Highly recommended and even the referrals I have made have found him to be the best!

12/11/10 5 5 5 5 After having been a patient with Dr. Aizuss over the last 22 years, I could honestly say that he is the best. From amazing bedside manner to the most accurate diagnosis and treatments, I have always been extremely happy. Recently I had the PRK/PTK procedure to correct my cornea erosion and vision and today my vision is 20/15. I owe everything to Dr. Aizuss. Many thanks!

11/04/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Aizuss performed cataract sugery on me and implanted a torric IOL. He is a fabulous surgeon, really cares about his paitients and is extreemly practical, often anticipating your questions and answering them before you can formulate them into speach (lol). He also did a similar surgery on my father in law who also sings his praises. In addition, his anesthesiologist really knows how to make a great twilight umbrella drink! As Dr. Aizuss once said to me "I keep asking him to give me some to take home, but he refuses" - a great team at oaveyes.com.

09/03/07 5 5 5 Dr. Aizuss performed my cataract surgery. It went quite well. I have had no problems. He has made excellent referrals to me within his office for other eye problems that I have had. This is a great office. All the doctors I have are excellent. Dr. Aizuss is pleasant. Sometimes he is a little rushed, but that's not so terrible given what a great job he did on my surgery. Highly recommended
