Marietta, GA |
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.

Dr.Long did a great job, I'm now able to see a lot better and look a lot better. I feel great. Felt like I was a new woman after this surgery. My husband loves it too, and have recommended people to him and my husband to get it done.

Grate job. I can see much better now that I have had the surgery. Every one was very courteous and helpful. Made my day...keep up the great work. Would recommend dr. Long to every one.

I would very much refer anyone to Dr. Long. I had a great experience and everyone there was very polite and helpful, and very professional. I have had the opportunity, since my surgical procedure the end of May, to refer people to Dr. Long if they were in need of surgery. I have also come across several where Dr. Long had done their procedure as well. Thank you again so much and I have had many compliments on noticing the difference. Have a wonderfully blessed day!!!

I saw him for an eyelid surgery. His staff is wonderful especially Kate Mcgarity. My surgery was covered by my insurance which I was very happy with. The surgery went great and I look very natural. Dr Long called me the night after the surgery to check on me, he really cares about his patients and it shows. If you need an eyelid procedure, I wouldn't go anywhere else.
