This was such great medical experience - very professional handling, very helpful staff and perfect medical support. I got a thorough examination of my eyes (1.5h) and just 4 days later on a Saturday I had my surgery. The same night, I had been able to go out for dinner and the next day my vision was absolutely sharp - much better than with the Contact Lenses. I am super happy with my choice, to let Dr. Adelson correct my eyes. Heiko Weller VP Engineering Bosch

I had laser eye surgery 3 months ago and am so pleased with my results. The staff at both the Warren and Northville offices are extremely professional and supportive. Top notch!!! Today I'm taking my friend to get her surgery. Highly recommend!

Dr . Adelson and his staff was beyond outstanding. He was very detail with his explanation of the surgery. The surgery moved by well in a matter of minutes and he made sure I was comfortable the entire time. Most importantly, my results are outstanding and I he definitely met his obligations as my doctor. I am overly please with my selection of him and would recommend him for anyone with laser vision needs.

I'm a very happy patient! I was in search of a facility and doctor that provided LASIK eye surgery. That is exactly what I found at Adelson Eye & Laser Center with Dr Howard B. Adelson. From my consultation to my surgery and every appointment after they have made my experience fast and easy! Everyone in the front of the office and back are very nice and have great chair side manner.Dr Howard B. Adelson answered all of my questions in ways that I could understand. I would recommend this office!

As a board-certified internist/MD i know and could choose many eye docs- i chose Howard Adelson for his excellent reputation, experience and surgical ability..(cataract surgery).post-op day 1 no pain 20/20 vision.. would recommend to my patientsand family and obviously I chose him for myself...no office is perfect but what counts is your surgeon not the front desk so much...go for one of the best with Howard Adelson!

Procedure was great and Dr Adelson made me feel comfortable during the entire process. It went off without a hitch. Like both him and his brother. Very professional and makes sure you know your options. Only complaint is wait time on appts. It's beyond ridiculous as they over schedule. Appt at 8am and its 9:25 as I'm still sitting in an exam room. You never get in and out here ever. They are very slow and you can expect to spend over an hour here even if you schedule the first appt. Huge downfal

I have been very pleased with Dr. Howard Adelson and the care he and the office staff has given me. Dr. Adelson is professional, honest, thorough, and has always spent enough time with me to answer all my questions.

Dr. H. Adelson did my procedure. He was very truthful when I asked for close details on tools, etc. I wish someone had told me the importance of keeping my head absolutely still, rather than just looking at the light, but he handled that well enough. I can read at distance for the first time in my life.

Dr. Howard Adelson did my eyelid lift upper and lower, Botox, fillers and laser facial resurfacing. I look incredible and couldn't be happier! He even gave me his personal cell phone number afterwards in case I had any follow up questions. I now look 15 years younger !! I've had other cosmetic procedures performed elsewhere before but I've never experienced this level of care. Truly stellar in every way from start to finish. I give Dr Howard Adelson my highest recommendation ....
