    Dr. Davidorf always takes time to discuss my concerns. It is through his intervention that I am now using a continuous blood glucose monitor and am better able to manage my diabetes.

    I have see Dr. Davidorf for many years. He treated both my parents so he has known me since I was quite young. He is always phenomenal. Very good an explaining medical terms in easy to understand way he's very compassionate. I had both retinas attempt to detach and several blood vessels break. My first experience with spots in my eye was alarming to me. His office worked me in and everyone was very much able to put me at ease while not offering any false promises about what to expect in my healing. He and the staff are always amazing. Well done!!
