in Marquette, MI |
First of all, he holds the patents on the machine he used to save my wife's eyesight. She had a very bad case of narrow angle glaucoma, the hardest to treat. After his surgery, she was able to stop having to put eye drops in one of her eyes. My wife went on to be one of the nation's top Intelligence Officers.
