      Wonderful. I think he is very skilled, thorough and a competent physician.
      in Mentor, OH |
      I live in Mentor, Ohio and I see Dr. Stephens in his Parma office. I have had diabetes for 15 years before I had eye problems. I went to other local Eye Surgeon Doctors near me but Dr. Stephens is by far superior to others. Dr Stephens is the finest Dr I have ever been to. He repaired both detached retains and provided laser repair as well. During and after my surgeries I had no pain and was completely satisfied with his care. You won't find a better specialist anywhere. 5Star Platinum

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
