Here's what patient are saying about Dr. Radakovic's eye care:
Great. Dr. Radakovic is wonderful. She is knowledgeable, professional while being positive, kind and sincere. I can't say enough about how terrific she is in her work. She has it all, the knowledge, the people skills, and most importantly, the sincerity which is obviously honest and real.
Dr. Radakovic is simply the best for both children and adults. Our entire family switched their care to her.
After cancer treatment, started having attention problems. School was/is such a struggle for [him]. Dr. Radakovic did a good job of incorporating [his] interest in basketball into his therapy. She was very helpful and organized. He looked forward to going. I have recommended Dr. Radakovic to many colleagues (I teach) and parents.
After two cancellations due to ice/snow, we finally made it to the office. My mother is a stroke patient and her eyes were affected and she was left with double vision. Two eye doctors told her that her double vision could not be treated. This was not true and on the first visit with Dr. Radakovic, she thoroughly tested my mother and was able to fit her with prism patches that corrected the double vision. My mother was thrilled as she had not been able to see clearly since her stroke occurred in 2013. Dr. Radakovic was a true blessing for my mother. Our family will now be visiting Dr. Radakovic for all of our vision needs.
Dr. Cathy was awesome! Looking forward to working with her on helping our son Will!
I was impressed with my appointment with Dr. Catherine Radakovic. She's extremely bright, courteous, and I can tell an exemplary asset to your organization.
