in Louisville, KY |
I would not consider recommending this doctor. In the time he spent with me, he discounted everything I said, didn't ask about my specific situations and lumped me in with many others using broad generalizations in the extremely short time he spent with me. I will not go back.

Dr Brightweel and his staff are professional, courteous and patient. Dr Brightwell did my lasic surgery and years of follow up. I highly recommend this doctor.
