in Clancy, MT |
Unlike the previous review, my cataract surgeries were painless. I had a concern after the 1st surgery about the type of lens to be used in the 2nd surgery, and Dr. Wilkerson met with me almost immediately to discuss the matter with me. He answered all my questions and was very reassuring. I highly recommend Dr. Wilkerson to anyone considering cataract surgery. He and his staff are the best All were very courteous & professional.

two cataract procedures extremely painful. uses only eye drops, no injection like other opthalmologists. does not offer any other anesthesia options.
