Dr. Whitsett answered all of my questions. The waiting time in his office was not that long. He did lens replacement in one eye and one week later did the other. Prior to the procedure I needed glasses to see anything up close. There was no pain or discomfort at any time. It seemed like a miracle. I didn't need glasses again for anything.

I was referred to Dr. Whitsett by my Eye doctor and he did lasik on my husband , years back. Nothing but good quality service at that time with my husband but today I had a consultation appointment for myself and arrived a few minutes before my scheduled appointment since we drove 3 hours from our hometown,only to wait a hour and a half before being fed up and telling the front desk girl that I was leaving. I hate that I wasted my time, very unprofessional, I'll be looking elsewhere for lasik .
