"That's it, Mark Kramar is EXCELLENT"



"Dr. Kramar is a first rate ophthalmologist. He was thorough in his first examination of my eyes. Since then, I have had the YAG laser surgery to clear up the blurriness after my cataract surgery and he was quick and reassuring. Most important, I called the office and he called me back the same day and discussed a problem I was having and the solution. I am really impressed with him!"



"Best ophthalmology group especially Dr Kramer ! If something is urgent he is always available including after hours ,"



"I've been seeing Dr. Kramar at his Encino office for over 3 years now and couldn't be happier with the office, staff and most of all Dr. Kramar, a highly skilled Ophthalmologist. I did extensive online research and chose Dr Kramar over many others because of his impressive credentials and experience, but I've also found him to be extremely warm and caring as are all of the wonderful people at this exceptional facility. I can't imagine going anywhere else for my eye health."
