in Kent, OH |
Dr. STEPHENS recognized a problem and started treatment immediately. He attacks Macula aggressively and hopefully will slow this process as much as possible. Very caring man and wonderful staff
in Elyria, OH |
Dr. Stephens removed a thick cataract and placed a lens in my left eye. I can't begin t o express my pleasure with the doctor, procedure and clinic. The procedure was painless! The kindness shown was beyond my expectations. I can't imagine letting anyone else work on my eyes. Excellent results!!! Very thoughtful!
in Mogadore, OH |
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
