What People Say About Dr. Lawrence Gans, MD
Reply
I do not recommend this doctor. After being promised to give me 20/20 vision and after $9800.00 my vision is not better in the least. Had cataract surgery in April 2018 and was told that if I spent this money he would "guarantee" me 20/20 vision only to be then told by him after post surgery that at this point I will just have to "live with it" Not to mention his office keeps billing me for post-surgery services that were not performed! Very disappointed and no way would I recommend this Dr.
