I was not satisfied with his answers or concerns after surgery

Dr. Knowles and the entire staff at Stahl Vision, that I encountered, were wonderful, helpful and professional. Like a lot of people who have put off having any Lasik procedure, I too waited but after having the procedure I'm sorry I waited so long. I'm still amazed at my vision and it has only been three weeks. Would highly recommend Dr. Knowles and Stahl Vision.

Dr. Knowles and the entire staff at Stahl Vision were AMAZING!!! It has been the best customer service and medical experience I have ever had. I've been wanting to do it for years but always talked myself out of it. I finally had enough of glasses and contacts so had PRK done three weeks ago. Never had a bit of pain or discomfort!!!!! Best decision I've ever made! Thank you Dr. Knowles and Stahl Vision for giving me my sight back!

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
