What Our Patients are Saying


Love Dr. Diana Kersten!  She removed my Pterygium that had grown into my line of vision.  As you can imagine, having surgery on your eye can be a scary thing.  Everyone at the San Clemente office was so friendly and the staff at the Surgery Center were sweet and caring.  It has been 10 days since the surgery and I cannot be more pleased with the outcome.  Thank you, Dr. Kersten, for what you do!


Dr. Hovanesian is a superb surgeon--informative and caring.  My internist Dr. J gave him the highest recommendation.
