Dr. Shatz's Care Philosophy

We use exceptionally sophisticated technology in the treatment of visual disorders. Yet the most important element of eye surgery is the relationship betweeen the surgeon and the patient. Communication is essential in addressing the needs of each individual. Tailoring cutting edge technology to match the specific needs of each individual is my focus. Performing vision correction in an artful, personalized manner is my prescription for success.

Patient Comments (2)
North Pomfret, VT |
Dr. Lauren Shatz was incredibly rude during my consultation for LASIK. He assured he was not a used car salesman, which wasn't condescending enough, he went on to dismiss any questions I had about procedure and cost. He literally laughed and scoffed when asking what his services covered, invalidating the commitment I was going to make. He was short, curt and incredibly unprofessional. I drove an extra hour further to have my procedure done by someone who knows how to respect clients.
