    My Aunt sees Dr. Bakos and has two insurances, the Dr. told her she should get rid of one so she can afford to pay for her glasses. I think this was outrageous of the Dr.. She has no business giving input on insurance when she knows nothing about the situation. She ought to stick to being a Doctor.

    I had a wart growing on my left upper eyelid and left lower eyelid, covering some eye lashes. She showed me a close up picture of the warts. She protected my eyes. She explained everything she did, and lasered the warts. Dr. Bakos told me my tissue would fill in where the warts were removed. I was amazed at how fast the procedure was and my eyelashes grew back in! My left eye looks beautiful again! Dr. Bakos is great! She has a friendly staff, clean office, very accommodating!
