It was my understanding that I was going in for a free consultation prior to possible elective surgery. I ended up not having the surgery but 9 months later was contacted by a collection agency for $140 for the office visit. I am very disappointed that, unlike other doctors I saw to discuss this surgery, this visit was not actually a free consultation. Nor was the office willing to work with me on this charge.

My experience with Dr. Byron Long was outstanding! I met him for the first time for a consultation on my drooping eyelids, which were starting to impair my vision. He immediately came across as very caring and professional. He made feel at ease from the start and I immediately felt that I would be in good hands with Dr. Long. His office staff were also exemplary and extremely helpful with not only the scheduling process for the surgery, but also for the surgery check in process and subsequent follow-ups. The surgery went very smooth. That evening, after the surgery, Dr. Long called me to check on me and to make sure everything was going well and that I was not encountering any unusual pain or symptoms. In the last 30 years, I can't remember any surgeon calling me directly to check on me! He is an amazing surgeon with a bedside manner that is extremely rare today. My eyes look amazing and I couldn't be happier!

The surgery really didn’t cause me any pain or discomfort. As long as your follow instructions, you are going to have a good experience. I was terrified, but it was a breeze. Did not want Kenny Rodgers affect and I didn’t, i look rested and younger.

Really pleased with my treatment. The staff is really nice and very informative. I was referred to Dr Long by my primary eye doctor. My primary eye Dr was able to get me an appointment the next day. Dr Long was very nice and was able to treat my eye problem immediately. I am so relieved and happy with the results. I would certainly recommend him to friends and family.

From the very beginning, when I was evaluated, Dr.Long was very friendly and made the process very easy for me. I was very skeptical about this procedure but once insurance approved I did not wait and went ahead with it. Very amazed with th outcome, how much better my eyes feel and look. I don't even have to wear eye shadow anymore.

Oh gosh! First thing I could not believe the difference what I couldn't see before surgery. My eyes looked like slits, and after the operation it looked even more amazing. His sutures were fantastic. He is an amazing doctor and the operation was super easy. No hurt not pain. I have been telling everyone about him.
