Dr. Lauer and her immediate staff were great! I had cataract surgery on both eyes . Listens to any concerns and takes the time to address everything. Very down to earth explains everything , takes her time, does not rush through , is not more concerned with the computer as most doctors now a days! Her whole time is about you! Surgery went so well and I knew exactly what to expect! I would recommend Dr. Lauer to everyone! I can actually say it was a great experience and it was so easy! Do it !

Dr. Lauer performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. She took time to explain in detail all that was going to happen and answered all my questions. The results exceeded my expectaions. I would highly recommend her.
