Dr. Josephson is, in my opinion and based on my experiences as his patient, an outstanding Ophthalmologist who restored vision quality to me that I hadn’t had since I was a teenager, which includes the benefit of eliminating the need to wear glasses except for over the counter readers for close up work.
Doctor Josephson performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes (the right in Oct. 2016 and the left in Nov. 2016) and restored 20/25 vision in my right eye (which had an off the chart level of astigmatism) and 20/20 in my left eye (which also had a very high level of astigmatism). In addition I am a very untypical patient in that I suffer from Amyloidsis which has caused swelling in my eyelids and I take medication for another illness which causes movement of my Iris. Both of these conditions make cataract surgery all that more difficult but Dr. Josephson executed these procedures flawlessly even though he admitted to me afterwards that I was one of his most challenging patients for the reasons I just outlined.
Another point I want to make is that Doctor Josephson was the third Ophthalmologist I had dealt with. The first one said I was “above her pay grade” and the second didn’t think the lenses to correct my astigmatisms were “worth it”, but Dr. Josephson felt confident in treating me and in his ability to correct my astigmatisms.
The bottom line is that I highly recommend Dr. Josephson to anyone in need of the services of a quality and caring Ophthalmologist. Trusting your eyes to someone takes a high level of confidence in your doctor and Dr. Josephson is most deserving of that trust.

The staff was very warm and welcoming. I felt my medical problems were something that should not wait, and they got me right in. The office is very clean and pleasant. Dr. Josephson was kind. He found the problem that two other doctors had missed. He was clear in his explanation of the problem and immediately made a referral to the best suited ophthalmologist for my needs. I definitely will continue coming to him for my care. I found him by talking with another patient of his - a friend strongly recommended him as a compassionate and highly skilled surgeon. Now I can recommend him to you! more »

My multi-year ophthalmologist just retired; his office recommended Dr. Josephson. During my first visit (of many to come, probably) the staff and Dr. Josephson were as cordial as one could expect. Dr. Josephson was matter-of-fact with a confident attitude and certainly his background strongly supports that confidence. more »

Our son needed to have xrays and a physical exam after a hit and run incident damaged his face, eye area and cheek. We called on Friday and were able to see Dr. Josephson on Saturday morning! Impressed with his explanation of the images and grateful he was able to see us so quickly. more »

I'm writing this review on behalf of my father in-law who had eye surgery done with Dr. Josephson.
Now let me start by telling you just how much of a skeptic my father in law is with "newfa
ngled surgical technology" - he began to develop cataracts in both eyes. After doing some research and settling on Dr. Josephson, he insisted on only having one of his eyes done "just in case."
Well I'll tell you, coming out of the experience he said that Dr. Josephson was incredible - my father being a tenured senior professor of electrical engineering for many decades needs to understand EXACTLY how things work and Dr. Josephson not only laid out how things work in great detail with the equipment, the surgery and the various types of lens replacements, he also walked him through all of the options he had on the table and the pros and cons of each. Once they settled on the perfect lens for my father in-law, they set a time for the surgery and it went as smoothly as is possible.
Dr. Josephson's bedside manner was even better than his transparency and provision of information. Another funny story: Both dr. Josephson and myself are named John - well Dr. Josephson gave my father in-law a call following up after the surgery and was so genuine in concern for my father in-law (and apparently sounds much like me on the phone) that he thought it was me, and had a 15 minute conversation with Dr. Josephson before he realized it was his doctor. While he was incredibly embarrassed, he couldn't believe how genuinely interested Dr. Josephson was in his well being.
The result of the surgery was incredible returning perfect, natural sight, enough that my father in law has gone back to night driving and the like with completely confidence and that's with just one eye!
It goes without saying that the father in-law is planning on getting the other eye done the first chance he gets!
In short, you won't find a better eye doctor/surgeon, not just in this area. Period.

I was fortunate to have discovered Dr.Josephson while enduring a painful cornea condition. Surgery was scheduled and performed just two days after my initial diagnostic appointment. Dr. Josephson took the time to explain the procedure to me, thoroughly answered my numerous questions, and was affable and reassuring throughout the entire process. Highly recommended! more »

At the recommendation of my eye doctor I chose Dr. Josephson to evaluate me and then perform the necessary cataract surgery. He and his staff are very professional. The surgery was a success and I am, so far, very pleased with the results. He has helped me make informed choices and made me feel very comfortable with the decisions. more »

I did an extensive search to locate an eye professional in my area for me and my Mom. I had several criteria for that professional. My search was successful and Dr. Josephson and his incredibly gracious staff hit every point plus more! My 83 year old Mom is pleased with him...his bedside manner, quick knowledge and ease of interaction made our visits very rewarding. I am hooked and highly recommend this practice. more »

We selected Dr. Josephson's practice based on the Yelp reviews and location. After an ER visit for an eye infection, the ER doctor told me to see an ophthalmologist within two days. We called several local practices but they could not fit us in. So we did our Yelp search, read Dr. Josephson's reviews and called his office. After explaining our situation to the office manager he called the Dr. to the phone and he spoke with us to gain an understanding of our situation. Then he fit us into his schedule the next day. Our office call was terrific. He diagnosed the condition, recommended a course of treatment and we will follow up with him in a couple weeks. Superb "bedside manner", a well run office and great care. We think we've found our new family ophthalmologist. more »

Needed a refill for eyedrops. Made an appointment and asked for the RX refill. Dr. Josephson was nice and caring. He checked to make sure my vision was okay and said the prescription should be on the way. I received the refill the day after the appointment. Yes, yes, yes, I would recommend him to friends and family. His practice is 10 out 10. more »
