A Professional Experience
Dr. Neu’s examination and review of his findings were professional and reassuring. His diagnosis, while not really what I wanted, was reassuring in that he and his staff would be readily available if, and when I needed assistance.

Doctor Neu was very thorough in eye examination. Notice that I had pressure behind my eyes that needed to be relieved a religion he did the laser surgery 30 minutes after diagnosing it and I feel much better. So thankful to have a good doctor.

I absolutely will recommend Dr. Neu. In fact, he came highly recommended to me and I am grateful for the recommendation. I was fearful about the procedure but came away with no fear; fully understanding what was about the occur and my role in the outcome. I am happy to be fortunate to have Dr. Neu treating me. He is kind, considerate and gives the opportunity ask questions. Moreover, he has selected and grown a top notch staff in the same Patient First philosophy which is very appreciative.
