Patient Comments (1)
Minneapolis, MN |
After much thought and consideration, I had Dr. Born complete a LASIK procedure on both my eyes. The results were fantastic and the transaction was painless. Dr. Born took time during the consultation to ensure all my questions were answered. He also met with me pre-procedure to cover any final details. I must also complement his friendly office staff. Their professionalism, expertise, and friendliness brought me great comfort.
