in Harrisburg, PA |
I have never felt so comfortable going into surgery. The ENTIRE staff made me feel relaxed and comfortable. (If I ever started to drift away from that feeling, they did everything they could to bring it back). I have already recommended Memorial Eye Institute to everyone who wants to hear my story.

Staff are the most competent and they put all of your fears to rest. I trust Dr. Chotiner completely.

I had a very good experience. Staff was very polite and attentive. Procedure was scary but I can see now again. Thanks so much to Dr. Chotiner.

The morning of my surgery one of the nurses from the non-surgical side of the facility took the time to check on me. I thought that was 'great'.
