Dr Long seems like a nice guy. For the whole minute that I seen him before he operated on my eyes. I was disappointed that he did not take care to cut my eyelids even on both sides. I'm not a surgeon, but I am a nurse, the sutures were huge and unforgiving. It was like he was having a bad day...more
