I’m a T1 Diabetic of nearly 50 yrs. Dr. Singerman has been treating my complications since 1994. Of the many experts I see, he is the absolute best. Dr. S and his staff are responsive and immediately available in a pinch. Most patients have no idea how highly regarded he is (not just in the US but worldwide). And he has long been a leader in research regarding diabetic complications. BTW, he is typically in the office on Saturdays serving his patients - how many specialists can say that?

Dr Singerman is EXCELLENT. His knowledge and treatment options for my macular degeneration have allowed me to keep my vision for over 5 years. He and his staff make me feel like they are treating one of their family. I cannot thank them enough for their excellent care.
