Quality care! Fantastic Ophthalmologist too. Spends time and listens to his patients. We need more doctors like Dr. Reiter.
I have been a patient of Dr. Reiter for over 20 years. He has a great practice. Karen really gets things done. Liz knows how to help choose the right glasses and fit them to your face. They are all thorough, professional and friendly. My cousin was visiting from out of the country a few years ago and had an emergency eye situation. They were accommodating, acted quickly and are compassionate. Thank you Dr. Reiter, Karen, Liz and staff
To prepare for the dreaded eye exam at the DMV later this spring, I decided to update my reading glasses so I used my VSP plan to have my eyes examined. I always prefer an ophthalmalogist and Dr. Gary S. Reiter and his staff, Karen and Chuck, were extraordinary from the time I made my appointment by phone to my arrival and departure from their office. They let me try on diffraction frames at a leisurely pace and I was able to take selfies as a reference to what I want to consider when I return to order my frames. I hope to meet Liz, the optometrist, who was out the day I was there for my appointment. They have the latest equipment and I felt very comforted and cared for at their office which is clean, serene and part of a small mid-century design office complex in Newport Beach. Thank you for making my eye appointment in 2020, the year of clear vision, such a peaceful time. Now, I'm off to practice the written sample DMV tests online.
I have had numerous surgeries over the years: 3 knee "scopes,"4 total knee replacements, a heart stent, etc. I had considerable surgery room experience as a volunteer assistant during my pre-med college days, and have known dozens of physicians.
He has treated he for macular degeneration and cataracts. He did cataract surgery on each eye in December 2016 and January 2017. Both surgeries went very well. He and his talented staff were great during the pre and post surgery experiences.
In addition to his obvious outstanding surgical skills, Dr. Reiter is absolutely the most personable, caring, and follow up doctors I have known. His people skills are exceptional. He exudes warmth, caring, and encouragement. He is excellent at details, and follows up his patients with phone calls to see how they are doing. Indeed, he is truly a credit to his profession!
I recommend him without reservation!
When I went to renew my California driver's license, I didn't pass the DMV eye examination and I had to have a doctor examine my eyes so that I could pass the DMV eye examination. Dr. Reiter and his staff performed very though eye examinations and determined that I had cataracts that needed to be removed in order to correct my vision.
Dr. Reiter and his staff, Karen, Yvette and Charles, were very comforting and supportive in helping me in reaching the decision to have the cataract surgery.
When it came time to have the surgery, Dr. Reiter explained every step of the operation and gave me detailed instructions on how to care for my eyes before and after the surgery
As a trained engineer, I saw Dr. Reiter take extensive measurements during his examinations of my eyes to make certain that the surgery would be successful.
I am comfortable knowing that Dr. Reiter and his staff are available if there is an emergency.
Dr. Reiter asked me if I wanted far or near lenses. I replied: "I want the lenses that you would have". I opted for the far lenses.
I am extremely crateful to Dr. Reiter for all of the professionalism and care that he exhibited in this journey of cataract surgery. My vision is very clear and sharp and colors are bright and vivid. I am thrilled that I had the cataract surgery and I am now seeing better that I have in many, many years.
I like to look at the stars and now I am now able to see the stars at night as individual points of light.
P.S. I passed the DMV eye examination.
I will do James O. one better: I would give Dr. Reiter 7 stars if I could.
My story is that I needed to have cataract surgery in both eyes and I was a very cfomplicated medical case. I'll spare you the details of why but suffice it to say that it was a challenge to give me vision that would come close to even 20-40 after the surgery. I knew from friends in the medical community that Dr. Reiter has a reputation as an "opthamologist's opthamologist." Other opthamologists send him especially complex cases and patients come to see him from all over the world. So I decided to have him do my cataract surgeries on both eyes.
In sum, I obtained spectacular results. I now see 20-20 with one eye and 20-15 with the other with no side effects. And this is someone who before the surgery (and since I was about 12) couldn't cross a room without bumping into things because I was so extremely far-sighted without my corrective lenses. Dr. Reiter's follow-up care was also exceptional. For example,when I went for my first follow-up visit after my first surgery, Dr. Reiter saw a possible issue with my retina that, out of cauton, he wanted a retina specialist to look at, and although it was about 5:30m p.m., he was able to get me in to see the specialist about 15 minutes later. Now that's service! (Fortunately, the retina specialist said I was ok.)
I have worn glasses for 65 years. Dr. Reiter suggested that I have cataract surgery on my last visit. I was impressed by the time he took in explaining the surgical process. He took about 45 minutes to explain the operation. I was completely at ease during the operations. He does one eye and then about two weeks later the other eye. I expected to see better after the first operation but when I realized that I was shaving without my glasses I was amazed. I have now had the second eye done and the results are spectacular. I can read and watch television without glasses. I was totally dependent on glasses before. If you are considering a Ophthalmologist go to Dr. Reiter. He takes the time to make you comfortable and his staff is outstanding.
Visited Dr. Reiter for my annual eye exam. COVID-19 times and this office feels safe because the staff takes all the precautions making me feel protected and safe. Karen processed all of my paperwork quickly. Chuck could not have been nicer and more efficient. Doctor was on time and thorough. Liz showed me frame after frame; I purchased a pair of very sporty sunglasses with great coverage for walking and hiking as well as some stylish DUTZ frames from The Netherlands. I cannot wait to pick them up. Love this office.
I have not been to the eye doctor since I was a kid and I was cautiously optimistic about choosing the right one. My experience with Dr. Reiter, Karen and his staff has been warm, friendly and I have felt right at home with peace of mind… Thank You!
Great opthomologist and staff! Love going to Dr. Reiter. Karen, Chuck, and Liz are great. They are very caring and always put patient care first. They also have the latest selections of high quality eye wear, too! Highly recommend them!
I have been seeing Dr Reiter for decades, and he has been very effective in his examinations and office workings. He has helped me prevent certain eye issues, has done surgeries on me for a couple of things, and I trust him implicitly.
Dr. Reiter is a excellent ophthalmologist. I have been going to him for over 10 years. He does complex eye exams and treatment outcomes are excellent. His staff is very nice every time I go into his office. He even offers you coffee or water. My husband and two daughters go to him too. They except my insurance. I gladly pay when my deductible is not met. Good medical care is not free!
I recently had cataract surgery in both eyes. I've worn glasses for distance vision for approximately 20 years and later for reading. Recently I noticed that my distance and reading vision was declining. I scheduled an eye examination with Dr. Reiter. He explained the cause of my vision decline and suggested a course of action. I scheduled cataract surgery in both eyes (three weeks apart). To my surprise the procedure was without pain and the entire team was great. Today I am reading, driving and viewing my computer with out glasses. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to him.
I think Gary Reiter is best surgeon in orange county. when i visit in clinic they attends me and help me out from my problem. Very Knowledgeable and well qualified Cataract Surgeon Gary Reiter.
Thanks Dr. Reiter
My name is Cory M. I was a new patient to the office and called in the same day at 9 am for a last minute appt. Since i had a metal foreign object lodged in my eyeball. The staff was great she said come right over and will get you in. Arrived 15 minutes later walked in and a very warm inviting staff very clean and cozy office. Was brought right in and in 20 minutes the doctor had it out. I was amazed as to how sharp the doctor was and was very understanding and educational to what happened and the recovery for my eye. Could not imagine going blind this office has my business and referrals forever thanks again for being compassionate and not capitalizing on the moment. There fees are very reasonable giving you only have 2 eyes. Thanks
Not too many people care about their patients the way this man does. They just don't make them like that anymore. He is thorough, responsive, and smart. You can tell he's passionate about his work.
Dr. Reiter provided me with the best medical service imaginable. I had cataract surgery and the operation was surprising trouble free. No pain or side effects at all. Dr. Reiter is also very personable and caring, as is his staff as well. When I became anxious about the surgery (before I had it) he talked with me and was very understandable. Now that the surgery is completed, it's as if I see a whole new world. I recommend him as highly as possible.
Dr. Reiter is simply the best ophthalmologist around. I have been extremely nearsighted since childhood, and went to him for 20 years for regular stuff. He kept my vision and health of my eyes in tip top shape. A few years ago I changed jobs and due to all this nonsense nat'l insurance business, I had to make the decision to change doctors since Dr Reiter was no longer an option on my new plan. What a disaster. Long story short, I had such a bad experience last 3 years with other dr that I just paid out of pocket to go back to Dr Reiter for 2nd opinion. W/in 5 minutes he discovered that at 48 I had a very bad cataract in my right eye. The other doctor never noticed this and just kept throwing power at it, none of which worked so I had terrible vision last 18 months.
Dr. Reiter just performed flawless cataract surgery on me and I can now see perfectly on that eye! The surgery with his team was a breeze. No pain whatsoever, not even the slightest feelings of irritation before, during or after. Simply amazing to me! He is very particular with instructions which I followed to the letter. He is extremely thorough and competent and has a very nice manner about him which is calming and reassuring. I highly recommend him! I am sticking with a sure thing despite the fact he isn't on my insurance!
I have been a patient of Dr. Reiter's for more than ten years and during that time he has fitted me with monovision contact lenses that enabled me to go with out eyeglasses. He happily made adjustments to my prescriptions, as needed, tweaking the lens power to give me the best possible vision. He has been tracking a growing cataract in my eye and the time had come for surgery. He recommended that I watch the surgical procedure on YouTube which familiarized me with what was going to take place during the surgery so it was not scary.. During the pre- op exam he found evidence of a condition that he felt would not respond well to laser surgery and multi focal lens.. After studying the data, he decided to fit me with an implanted lens that allows me to continue to have monovision. I truly appreciated his conservative solution. He performed the surgery yesterday withoutstanding results. Looking forward to the surgery on my other eye in two weeks. Great office staff and service. Definitely 5 stars.
I have been a patient of Dr. Reiter's for over 20 years. He is the finest Dr that I have ever met. He is knowledgable, professional and truly cares about his patients. I recently had cataract surgery from Dr. Reiter. He explained the proceedure to me in a way that I could understand. His follow up after surgery was the best. I got great results from my surgery, and would highly recommend Dr. Reiter and his caring staff.
I am amazed at the technology that has given me great eye sight without glasses and contacts. I cannot be happier with Dr. Reiter and his staff. This was one of the best things that I could do for myself all thanks t Dr. Reiter's suggestions and expertise.
I would give Dr. Reiter and his staff 6 stars if I could. He was highly recommended for cataract surgery by a friend. He emphasized how careful Dr. Reiter is, I agree and I truly feel that it played a big role in the great results I got.
I have just had cataract surgery with Dr. Reiter and am most pleased. My vision is terrific and I can do without glasses. Dr. Reiter and his staff are top notch and the whole experience was painless and smooth. I would highly recommend Dr. Reiter for your ophthalmic needs. You only get two eyes so you need to have the very best in the business of eye care.
