Dr Conahan himself-4.5 of 5. Not chatty, but efficient and seemingly knowledgeable. Office Support staff- 0 of 5 I wasted my time-- AFTER one apt and setting up surgery dates, etc, Told their surgical center is not on my medical plan. I had asked about doctor, etc. up front because I pretty much knew I needed cataract surgery. They said yes. I wasted my time.

Well, Tuesday will be a week. I walked into Dr. Conahan's office to see him with glasses. I walked out to see him without glasses. Thank you to the fine staff at United Eye Centers in CO. I trusted Dr. Conahan so much I flew from San Antonio, Texas to Denver, Colorado to have him do my Lasik Surgery. I had many options here in Texas but when it comes to your eyes, you should have 100% faith in your eye center.
