Patient Comments (1)
in Lake Mary, FL |
Dr. Jochum performed ptosis surgery on my right eyelid over 2 years ago. The surgery went very well with no complications. I would recommend him highly. I have also noted that for routine eye issues such as my dry eyes, the practice will encourage me to use OTC stuff and come in only if I dont self heal - this is in stark contrast to specialists today who are trying to bill as much as possible.
