Its Great Being Able to See Without Glasses!

My doctor and his team are happy to walk you through the process and answer as many questions as you can think of. They are dedicated to making you comfortable with your decision to get the procedure, and at no time make you feel pressured into the operation. This is a one time-operation so I wont need to go back but I will definitely recommend him to all my friends and family.

Loved Lasik - No More Glasses

Rated one of the top 100 surgeons in the country with years of experience. He was able to put me at ease and even sent me cookies after the procedure.
