Dr. DeBacker was recommended to me by another physician and he is highly regarded as an expert in his field. I found him to be very reassuring and personable. He took the time to answer my questions and fully explain the issues I was experiencing with my tear ducts. I found his office staff and medical assistants to be very helpful and my surgery and follow-up office visits have been great.

The front desk staff, assistants and Dr. are top shelf. Very friendly, helpful and caring. The procedure and office visits have always been on-time with very little wait time. The procedure has helped a lot with the problem I was having with my tear ducts.

He is a wonderful, caring person and a brilliant doctor. He repaired my eyelids and I never had a problem of any kind. He did a great job on my eyes, they look like they did when I was 18 and I am in my seventies.

I was referred to dr.debacker by another dr. Great office visit and diagnosed problem immediately. Staff was answered all my questions and setup surgery there were no surprises and everything that dr. Told me went like clockwork.i was a little surprised by the little pain meds but this man knows his profession. The follow up visits were awesome and informative. The only thing that was disappointing was that he won't be my regular eye dr. Other than that I would highly recommend this dr. I am very pleased with the service he provided and suggest you quit lookin you've found what you need here. A very gracious thanks dr debacker.

From the first consultation Dr. DeBacker was very good to take the time to explain everything and answer all my questions and I am so pleased with the results of my brow lift and upper eyelid surgery. I only had a slight headache the day of the surgery and I recovered very quickly with minimal bruising and swelling.

I have been treated by Dr. DeBacker for several years now. I experience chronic eyelid spasms (benign essential blepharospasms - BEB) and require frequent, medically necessary injections of botulinum toxin. Dr. DeBacker is always personable and concerned for my well-being. He has encouraged me to ask for him to apply the numbing cream to increase my comfort level – shots in your eyelids are not the most comfortable thing to experience, believe me. I will continue to return to Dr. DeBacker for these treatments as long as I am able.

I went in to see Dr. DeBacker for my drooping eyelids. He did a wonderful job! He recommended a few additional things I didn't even know would make a difference. Never felt pressured, glad I went thru with it. Great bedside manner. He called the night of surgery to make sure everything was going well after surgery. I would highly recommend this surgeon.

About 3 years ago I was referred to Dr. Debacker by my sister to have my upper and lower lids done to appear younger. I had the surgery and paid out of pocket over $7000. I had to have it redone by him and it still looks bad. I know that my sister and a friend of ours that had eye surgery performed by him had to have theirs redone as well. Dr. Debacker is good about offering to redo the surgery for the 3rd time but I have lost confidence in him. I do not recommend his services.

My visit and surgery with Dr. DeBacker went fantastic. He was very straight forward about the procedure and when it actually happened on Tuesday 3/26 it went smooth and I feel great. I have not had any complications all week and I was very happy to hear from Dr. DeBacker that same day to check up on me. I would highly recommend Dr. DeBacker and his staff was great too, Pearl helped me out tremendously.

This gentleman is a “stellar example” for of his profession! In every catagory of interaction with this doctor my experience could not have been better! And the results of my surgery were far better than I could have reasonably expected. The end result is perfectly natural... and folks cannot easily believe the before versus after pictures! Without fail... consult with Dr. DeBacker “before” you have any eye procedure performed. You'll be tracking me down to buy me a steak dinner.

Dr DeBacker gave full explanation and expected results of procedure. His manner gives one confidence in his abilities. Would definitely recommend to those needing blepharoplasty.

At my consultation with Dr DeBacker for eyelid surgery, he explained what he could also do with a brow lift. I am age 49 and happy I had both procedures done! It seems he was also able to correct some asymmetry in my face, giving me a more youthful and balanced appearance. The recovery period went quickly and smoothly. He and his assistant were always helpful and available when I had questions.

I am 73 years old and had heavy, sagging eyelids. My eyelashes were going into my eyes, and the lids affected my vision. I was referred to Dr DeBacker. He performed my eyelid surgery, both eyes, back in Aug 2018. I couldn't had been referred to a more Professional, Percisioned Eyeplastx Surgeon. I never had any pain or discomfort, very faint scarring, and the healing process was great. Dr DeBacker is an Excellent Blepharoplasty Surgeon, and I Highly Recommend him. He is the Best!

In this day and age of diminishing “pride in workmanship” on a general basis, it’s extremely refreshing and reassuring to encounter someone of Dr. DeBacker's caliber. His demeanor exhibited superb professionalism, utmost in courtesy, and a Sincere desire to assist. Thus, the end result of my surgery was superb !!!

This practice is like a breath of fresh air. The facility and warm, friendly staff compliment Dr. Debacker's experience and skill. On the day of my surgery, he personally called me in the evening to see how I was doing and to answer any questions. If you are a medicare patient, you can rely on his charges because he is an in-network provider. He also gives you a written guarantee of the maximum charges should Medicare not cover your procedure. Everything considered, excellent choice.

Terrific surgeon. Very careful with his work. Accessible (sent him questions via text with quick response). Great follow up to make sure all is going right. He evaluated me and told me exactly what I needed to get my eyes to look just right and hopefully see better. The results were excellent! Highly recommend!
