Because of his training and experience, Dr. Fuerst receives many referrals from other eye specialists for both routine and complex eye surgery, as well as many referrals from satisfied patients.
Dr. Fuerst completed his ophthalmology residency at the prestigious University of Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary in Chicago and his Cornea / External Disease fellowship at the Proctor Foundation of the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center. He is recognized as a mentor and educator, having served as residency program director at White Memorial Medical Center and on the teaching staff of the University of Southern California.
“It has been three months since you removed my cataracts and placed the Crystalens implant in my eyes. I could not be happier – it’s like having the vision of my youth. I drive, garden, & enjoy all the things you can do without glasses. What a joy.”
Sincerely, Betty McClurg
