Eyelid Surgery
My eyelid surgery to correct my obstructed vision left me with an uncomfortable sensation in one eyelid. There is a small "fold" created by the surgery that pulls on my eyelid. It was brought to Dr. Stewart's attention at a follow-up appointment with no remedy. There also wasn't enough tissue removed on my eyelids and I need to have the surgery redone.

Performed eyelid surgery well
Dr. Stewart was a great surgeon and fixed the eyelid problem. The staff within the clinic in Woodbury that worked with Dr. Stewart seemed to have communication issues with patients and each other. Also, when I did a consult for the surgery she said I should get it done asap and it wasn't done quickly again due to communication issues.

Dr. Stewart did a great job of talking to me before my surgery. (I was nervous.). The surgery itself was very successful, and my aftercare was great. Thank you, Dr. Stewart!

Visited for 2nd opinion
I saw Dr Stewart after a plastic surgery done a year ago at another office became infected. She examined me and gave me her opinion on what was thought was going on and options on how to fix it. I mentioned another doctor (not my original surgeon) I was going to see at the office I'd had the surgery and she had worked with him and felt he would he would concur (which he did). She and her staff were wonderful.

Dr. Stewart is a highly skilled surgeon
Dr. Krista Stewart removed a mole from the underside of my left eyelid. I was concerned about the end cosmetic result. At 10 days out from surgery, my eyelid looks great and no one would know that my eyelid had to be severed then stitched back together. Amazing result. Thank you.
