Before my cataract surgery, I had a significant amount of trepidation about the procedure. At my first appointment, I was very impressed with the way that Dr. Krawitz manages his office. He has an extremely competent medical and technical staff who are all very well versed in the use of highly technical diagnostic equipment. In addition, his staff were very helpful, reassuring and cordial. The surgery itself was actually an enjoyable experience from the competent and friendly staff at the Melville surgical center to Dr.Krawitz himself who projected a quiet, calm and self-assured confidence that immediately put me at ease. Dr. Krawitz is an unbelievably talented surgeon with magical hands. I experienced zero pain from start to finish and experienced an outcome beyond my expectations that resulted in 20/20 vision one month post surgery. In addition, the pre and post surgical written direction sheets are so well organized that they could be easily followed by a 7th grader! Dr. Krawitz also provides FAQ's sheets that address what to expect following surgery and almost anything else you could think to ask about. If you haven't yet found an Ophthalmologist for your cataract surgery, do yourself a favor and call Dr. Krawitz's Office for an appointment and rest assured that you will have made the best decision.

A wonderful outcome from an extremely professional, well run and competent practice. My vision today is as good, or better, than it was forty years ago. Dr. Krawitz and his staff are truly a well practiced team that made my cataract surgery uneventful, and the outcome remarkable.

I wouldn't trust any other doctor other than Dr. Krawitz to handle my glaucoma . He never rushes through my exam. He is very careful reviewing all my test results, and his explanations to me are clear and meaningful. Dr. Krawitz is caring, respectful, and in light of my condition, he always seems to find something humorous in my life to talk about. I feel I am under the best of care.
