    I had eyelid surgery by Dr.Long and I felt like I looked 10 years younger. He was so pleasant and his staff was so nice. I was suppose to have me sutures removed in a week but the result was so good, they came out on their own before a week. I give doctor long an A+ for my surgical result. I will be sending all me girlfriends and family to see Dr. Long.

    Dr Long seems like a nice guy. For the whole minute that I seen him before he operated on my eyes. I was disappointed that he did not take care to cut my eyelids even on both sides. I'm not a surgeon, but I am a nurse, the sutures were huge and unforgiving. It was like he was having a bad day first thing in the morning. They schedule d my follow up to take my sutures out 7 days later.. It was to long, the sutures were coming out, so I took them out myself. I felt like a number not a patien
