Dr. Paris I was very informative....answered all my questions.
in Piedmont, SC |
Dr. Parisi provided excellent care. My lasik surgery went extremely well. I was nervous about the procedure. However, staff at CLEMSON EYE (Greenville), were very kind and eased my worries. Dr. Parisi answered my questions, was polite and knowledgable. Thank you all, Sommer Posley
in Simpsonville, SC |
Dr. Parisi was great! LASIK can be scary to think about, so I appreciated how professional he was with me. I genuinely felt calm while I was having surgery. My eyes feel so much better, and I love having no contacts or glasses in my life. If you are on the fence, just do it!
Clemson, SC |
The 5 minutes I spent with the Doctor was not worth the 2 hours and 15 minute wait. I'm sure he's a good doctor based on other reviews but I cannot believe I had to wait over 2 hours. What's worse are other patients freely stated they typically wait 1 1/2 to 3 hours to see the doctors at Clemson Eye.
in Walhalla, SC |
What a great Dr. The experience in the Clemson office is very professional. Dr. Parisi gave me a through exam and made sure I understood what I needed to do for my eye sight to stay healthy. He was very good about answering questions. Thanks CLemson Eye
in Greenville, SC |
He was very competent and easy going, such that I had a nearly enjoyable procedure despite having eye surgery. The surgery itself can be quite daunting, but I didn't feel nearly as anxious as I could have because of the wonderful staff and Dr. Parisi's calm and collected methodology, and caring guidance.
in Taylors, SC |
I greatly appreciated the way Dr. Parisi walked me through each step of the LASIK procedure and let me know what to expect at each stage. His gentle explanations helped calm my nerves and made the experience an easy one.
in Salem, Sc |
I had debated for years having the lasik procedure. I was nervous my first few visits for the pre-op consultations but became more comfortable with my decision after walking out of the office. The staff and doctors were very helpful, courteous, & patient with my questions and concerns. I would recommend them to my family & friends with the belief that they will receive great care.
