Dr. Katsev has been the most professional, thoroughly conscientious and caring that I’ve come across in all my years interacting with the medical industry. An excellent Ophthalmologist and person! Would recommend him to absolutely anyone.
I've been a patient of Dr. Katsev for the past 25 years and there is a reason I'd never go to anyone else, not only is he an expert in his field but he always goes above and beyond for his patients. Doug and the team at Santa Barbara Eyecare are a family that has supported me through my journey from glasses to Lasik and I couldn't be more thrilled with my vision post Lasik surgery. Highly recommend SB Eyecare!
I had LASIK surgery done by Dr. Katsev 12 years ago and it was by far the best decision I have ever made. The surgery was so quick and easy, I wish I would have had it done earlier! Dr. Katsev and his staff were wonderful and made the whole surgery relaxing and an enjoyable experience. Would recommend Dr. Katsev and LASIK to absolutely anyone.
Best Doctor in Santa Barbara! Did my cataract surgery four years ago and I no longer need glasses! Changed my life. Thanks Dr. Katsev
Doug Katsev is the best doctor I know. Years ago his quick and personal work saved my vision by quickly organizing me to have surgery to fix a detached retina. His new office is great!
