in Germantown Tennessee |
Dr. Lender is very thorough I feel confident with his diagnoses & care. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Always a warm smile no matter how busy. Thank you for your personal care.
in Collierville, TN |
seeing my dermatologist that was uneasy about removing a cyst so close to my eye. He recommended Dr. Linder. I just popped in and they squeezed me in and removed it. It was much more extensive than I thought. Dr. Linder was so nice..his staff was great!! I'm so happy that it's gone and I will definitely go to him for any eye issues. They prepared me for this and that..and when I left, it was amazing!! I just was going in to see if they could do it and an hour later it was gone!!

I waited far too long (over an hour) to be seen by the doctor, then he hurriedly performed a procedure and threw some eye drops at me to "see if that makes a difference" with instructions to "come back in a month". Not the solutions I was looking for. He seemed very preoccupied and didn't ask questions or seem interested at all in my situation. Ran out the door as quickly as he came in.
Sorry for your experience. We are always working on our scheduling to improve wait times but we do have some urgent patient work ins that can affect my ability to stay on time. Based on your comments, I suspect you presented with complaints of tearing. This is a common complaint in my practice, and I feel comfortable I can help you with this. If you will give me a chance to see you for follow up, please ask for appt before 9 AM to avoid a longer wait.

Dr. Linder performed droopy eyelid surgery on me an outstanding job. Would highly recommend him.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to take care of you.
in Parsons, TN |
Dr. Linder has created tear ducts in both of my eyes. Explains everything. And one actually stopped up again over a year later. He created a new one and had to scrape more bone and scar tissue. I still had very little bruising and swelling Keeping ice on it. Dr. Linder is a very nice doctor, easy to talk to. He calls back himself to check on you and doesnt mind answering questions. I have shown many people where he had incisions on my nose and they all say u can't see them. He is the best!
Thank you for the kind words. It was a pleasure taking care of you Kerry.
