A year ago, I had a life changing eye surgery with Dr. Contreras removed my cataracts and implanted lens leaving me with perfect vision. He is a very experienced surgeon and thankful for his help. Do yourself a favor and don’t prolong cataract surgery!!!

What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams. While not all specialties have board certifications, if your provider does have one they’ve taken the extra step to master their specialty and to keep up with the latest advancements in their field.
