      unprofessional staff. Doctor did not spend time with me. I went because of the ads and the price was right. But my lasik did not turn out well. Having severe dry eyes and they are blowing me off unless I want to spend more money. didn't have this problem before surgery.
      in Brentwood, TN |
      I have a complicated eye injury. I see better now since Dr. Loden took over my care a few years ago than any previous provider except his father who restored my sight in 1987 with a lens implant
      in Nashville, TN |
      Closed his clinic at Skyline without warning. I don't know what type of problem they had but they should tell patients. Called the number and they said I would have to go to one of their other facilities but I would not be able to see my normal doctor. not happy.
      in Paris, TN |
      I had cataract surgery 2-4-16. I was scared to death about having the procedure done. My daughter had Lasik with Dr. Loden in August 2015. She assured me that I would be just fine. Her words, "He gave me superpower eye sight (20/15) and you will be good too." On the am of 2-5-16 I was 20/20 and refracted to 20/15. I could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you Dr. Loden and all of your staff!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      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.
