Review of Dr. Carter


Keith Carter botched my ptosis surgery, causing complete assymetry to my eyes. The incisions - one was lower, one was higher & peaked, so the lid deformed over one eye, and the other still had the ptosis. His clinic made it impossible to get another surgery scheduled for repair. Response time was terrible. I finally had it done elsewhere. I would never go back to that clinic or that doctor. Worth paying out of pocket - 3 years later! Completely horrible experience!

Review of Dr. Alward

- in Burlington, IA |

I have been seeing Dr. Alward for nearly twenty years for glaucoma in my left eye, and most recently for cataract surgery. He has always been friendly; has explained in detail the issues I'm facing, as well as the outcomes of the various tests and procedures I've gone through; and his residents, interns, assistants, nurses, and schedulers are very congenial, patient, and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Alward and his department to others.

Review of Dr. Johnson

- in Indianola, Ia |

I had a very difficult eye problem. Dr. Johnson listened to me carefully, explained options, spent more time with me that I would have expected and finally performed a challenging cataract surgery successfully.

Both Doctors were still there at 10:00am. Long hours! Much appreciated!

Review of Dr. Oetting

- in Fairfield, IA |

Dr. Oetting really took the time to explain my options very clearly. He was extremely competent at the procedure. He also showed a lot of caring about the outcome, even gave me his email address to follow up a few days later to make sure I was doing well. His office also followed up to see how I was doing and was very responsive to a potential complication (which turned out to be no problem after all, but they saw me right away just to be sure.)
