"During May 2013, I had cataract eye surgery. My doctor is David Aizuss with OAV. I am a senior, and had felt that I was losing some of my vision. When I went it for a checkup with Dr. Aizuss, he told me I had advanced cataracts in both eyes and would need lens replacement surgery. His staff scheduled me for the two surgeries (two weeks apart) with two post-op visits after each surgery. I am 100 percent happy with the surgeries and care provided by Dr. Aizuss and his staff. He may well be the best eye surgeon in the world, and I recommend him as highly as I can to anyone who needs the gift of having cataracts removed through surgery by a knowledgeable, skilled, experienced, and caring doctor.."
"Dr. Aizuss has been my ophthalmologist for years. He also attended to my mother, who was in her late 90's/early 100's. He has always been respectful and thoroughly professional. He does not have a one-treatment-fits-all approach, taking fully into account the individual patient he is seeing. I could not be more pleased with the care that I get from him and Ophthalmology Associates of the Valley."
"I go to the West Hills location and have found the office and staff warm and pleasant. I have had one appointment at the Encino office and was also VERY put off by the "assembly line" operation. I will never go back to that office. Dr. Aizuss and the other doctors are very friendly but, even in the West Hills office, they are in and out lickity split! They move you right along."
"Dr. Aizuss has been my ophthalmologist for many years. I trust him implicitly. He is attuned to my personal eye-related issues and is very thoughtful in his approach to my situation. I have also seen other doctors in the group, Dr. Kramer, Dr. Elkins, and could not be more pleased with any of them."
"My wife and I went to Ophthalmology Associates just a few weeks ago to get an eye exam. I wanted to try a new ophthalmologist office because the ones that i have been going to for the last 10-15 years have not been able to correct my vision with either contact lenses or glasses. OA was able to give me 20/20 vision all of because of Judy. She not only took the time to work with me and persisted in working until i got 20/20 vision with the use of contact lenses. I have never been able to achieve this with previous ophthalmologists. Thank you Judy for making this happen and really appreciate all the hard work that you have done. Dr. Aizuss was also very thorough in examining me and i do have a several eye issues which he addressed and gave me recommendations on how to properly treat them. Highly, highly recommend this office and especially Judy."
