Patient Comments (1)
Excelsior Springs, MO |
I was very concerned about having pterygium surgery. I read about it on the Internet and it sounded like there was a lot of pain involved. I discussed this with Dr. Parelman. I am a Doubting Thomas!! He was right, in fact I had no pain at anytime. He even called me that night to see how thing were going. His office made some follow-up calls, also. He did a great job and seemed to understand my nervousness.
