Dr. Fenzl did a phenomenal job with my Lasik procedure. He is very knowledgeable and makes the process easy. I was happy with the results the same day as the procedure, and even more so three months later. I would definitely recommend Dr. Fenzl to anyone considering Lasik.
in Taylor Ridge, IL |
Dr. Fenzl performed cmplex cataract surgery on both myl left and right eye. I found him to go above and beyond what one would expect from their doctor. He presened as professional yet caring and always willing to liste and treat every complaint in an effort to promote a painless healing process. I am extremely pleased with his care and grateful for his expertise.
