Surgery went smoothly and staff is wonderful! Dr ranelle is the best! I have one more eye to do and have full confidence that my next surgery will go just as well!
in North Richland Hills, TX |
This is the most professional place I have ever visited. After stressing about this and then having it done I laugh at myself for stressing. It was so easy, painless, and fast. I am especially impressed with the care I received from everyone who works there. They all were so caring and helpful. I would HIGHLY recommend this place. Dr. Ranelle is outstanding. The follow up with Dr. Head was great as well. The nurses Sandra and Tammy could not have been better.
in Colleyville Texas |
I would not recommend. I had cataract removed and Crystal Lens inserted in March 2016. I still could not see well after surgery and returned for 4 or 5 follow-up visits with Dr. Ranelle. On the last visit he said he'd get back with me on next steps. Still haven't heard back. I have now seen 2 cornea specialists, a retina specialist and an optometrist who all say Crystal Lens - or any multi-focus lens - was a very poor choice for me since I had radial keratonomy 30 years ago.
