My story begins many years in the making ; last two years my cataracts had progressed so much it was like looking through a fogged up window. And I stayed like this out of fear of surgery ( what was I thinking). Well I mustered all my courage and went in for a consultation. Right from the get go, I was greeted by Miss Cybil and she was so fantastic and reassured me I had made the right choice. She was so caring and understanding. She was able to process my paperwork through the VA system flawlessly. Then I spoke to Dr. Gadlin, he was so attentive to my needs and concerns (fears). He performed multiple test to determine the true status of my eye. Yup, I was a perfect candidate for cataract surgery. He explained everything from A to Z . Show me the procedures that were to take place during surgery and most important addressed my fear of surgery.
His hands were so precise and delicate during surgery and truly, in a 1 to 9 scale of pain I was a zero. Wow! and over in 20 to 25 minutes. The next day I was speechless, my sight was so perfect and the colors were so vibrant and best of all no fog! If you need a good eye surgeon, hands down the best in Athens. For me, I did my homework before selecting a Doctor and all of my research pointed to Dr. Gadlin; and you know what, it was the best decision I ever made. Every one was so professional, all the way down to the great folks at Anesthesia Consultants of Athens. Thank you , thank you for I can now see normal again.

Kudos to Dr. Gadlin
Dr. Gadlin provides professional and excellent care to his patients! He has been my ophthalmologist for 3 years. I can see clearly after he performed cataract surgery on me over a year ago, and he has managed my glaucoma well.
He never leaves an issue or any concern unresolved. He always answers questions in a manner which is never hurried. His demeanor is one of great care for all his patients! I recommend his practice to everyone. BTW: My wife loves receiving eye care from Dr. Gadlin as well.

Dr Gadlin is very personable and thorough. He read outloud what he was writing about my case on his computer, which allowed me to catch any misunderstanding in my relaying my info to him.

Easy, efficient, professional, and friendly. I’ve had annual eye exams for 2 years with Dr. Gadlin and am very pleased with the ease and thoroughness of the exams. I’ve had no eye problems so my interactions have been very simple.

I was well pleased with my office visit. First of all, I appreciated that I was allowed to read the eye chart without my eyes being dilated. I have never felt that I could see the chart clearly after my eyes were dilated. I also appreciate that my visit didn’t take a couple of hours because he was working on so many patients at the same time. I was also thankful that he was honest with me and didn’t pressure me to have surgery before I needed it. I have already recommended Dr. Gadlin to my best friend.
