As a primary care physician, I often refer patients to subspecialists. For the past 2 decades, I have referred patients with cataracts to Dr. Minotty. The outcomes and patient satisfaction have been consistently excellent. When I discovered that I had a cataract myself, the choice was easy. I went to the experienced, professional and talented Dr. Minotty. Now I know firsthand the excellent care that my patients receive at New Vision Eye Center.

I can describe my cataract surgery in on word: miracle. I have worn glasses or contacts for severe nearsightedness since I was 7 years old, and for astigmatism in more recent years. I now enjoy 20/20 eyesight. I can even see up close (computer, food labels, phone contacts) without the constant need for reading glasses. Thank you Dr. Tate for my new vision! You have changed my life more than I could ever have imagined.

Dr. Minotty operated on my right eye in 1996 and my left eye four years later. There was never any pain or discomfort. I was delighted to have amazingly clear vision by the afternoon. I never realized how dim everything looked until the cataract was removed. Today, many years later, I am still experiencing the same good vision as I did after surgery. I only need reading glasses. Thank you Dr. Minotty.
