It would have been helpful to hear Dr. Comments I heard 8/1following surgery rather than6 weeks later . I have had a alit of eye swelling to the point of not being able to read, knit, or TV watching. All this was scary. I called once & was just told to continue with drops. No communication with the surgeon was offered. Frightening & annoying To say the least. Also, the day after follow up appointments are too closely scheduled I waited 70+ minutes for less than 5 minute check on 6/15. 6/22 wasn’t as long but an additional doctor started to help the Dr. I was to see. I am not certain if the patient or schedule or number of people or income from patients is the focus. On 6/15 I had a 1 pm appointment . Dr. Hardten checked the right eye. I then was referred for the scheduled 1pm surgery appointment. I waited until 3.30pm for the 1 pm surgery appointment. No one explained to me or my waiting husband about the eait. The surgical nurses were brisk when I asked questions.

I’m a national magazine and corporate photographer. My vision is critical to my work. I’m done with cataract surgery, and I never had any idea a human being could actually see this well. Bravo!

Comprehensive Care and Great Outcome
Dr. Hardten and his team were very thorough, professional and great at communicating each step of the process. The follow up care was also comprehensive and addressed any of the concerns I had regarding the procedure. And so far the outcomes are also great I have nearly perfect distance vision in both eyes.
