Patient Comments (3)
Red Bud, Il |
He threw a fit when my daughter's eyes started to water during an exam. He threw down the prism and left the room. I called Quantum Vision Center to complain and they blew me off.
Belleville, IL |
I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. I have never been treated or talked to so poorly by a medical professional in all my life. Did not explain or comfort me with what he was doing. I was treated for damage that occurred to my lasik lens. Had I not been treated well at the lasik center in St. Louis when I originally got my lasik Dr. Unwin could have traumatized me to the point of never allowing anyone near my eyes. I plan to report my treatment by him to every avenue I possibly can.
in Collinsville, IL |
Overcompensated on my lasik surgery then after six months did an adjustment while I had a mild cataract. During the first surgery, he had to be told twice that he was hitting my nose. After the adjustment, eyes became worse. Luckily another MD did the cataract surgery but was unable to adjust due to the two surgeries prior being messed up.
