The team worked well and everyone knew their job and did it well. People were friendly and helpful. The only drawback was an hour delay. It would have been helpful if someone had told me about the delay so I would not have been so anxious.

Review for Dr. Larson

I trusted him. I will forever be bewildered and hurt that there was no regard for my health or my future. He has many years experience and should have known better. There is no way to understand any of it.

Review for Dr. Bartels

Dr. Larson performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes, within a nine-day period, and implanted Vivity IOLs. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome! Also, the personal attention and convenience of having her own surgical unit, within the same building as her offices, was real PLUS.

Review for Dr. Larson

Professional and caring. Made sure eye surgery would be safe based on my situation. Extremely knowledgeable. Entire staff is welcoming
