Outstanding doctor and clinic.
Dr. Neu performed my eye surgery in June of this year and I am very pleased with the outcome. Not only is he an excellent surgeon he is also a very nice man . Everyone at the clinic is very friendly and helpful; in fact everyone acts as if they thoroughly enjoy their job. If you have an eye issue that needs attention, I can’t’ imagine a better doctor or facility. Highly recommended!

My Experience With Dr. Leo Neu
Dr. Leo Neu is an exceptional surgeon. My cataract surgery was painless and quick. Dr. Neu is so friendly and kind and treats u as if u are one of the family. Was a little scared at first to do the surgery, yuk, eye surgery, but Dr. Neu performed it without pain or discomfort. What more would u want? Preparation for surgery was awesome. The nurses treat u like a king/queen and even play your favorite music while waiting for the surgery. All very nice and personable. When u are ready to leave, you have instructions until the next visit so there are no questions on what to do afterwards. Will be going back in a week for the second eye and believe me, I won't be scared at all this time b/c I know Dr. Neu will out perform again with no pain and discomfort. Boy, is it worth it. Didn't realize how bad my sight was until this was done. Colors are magnificent!! Thank you Dr. Neu!!!!

Everyone is extremely nice. Dr. Neu takes time and answers any questions you have. My husband and I both had cataract surgery there by Dr Neu. My husbands a few years ago. I had my right eye done on Monday the 21st. I'm real happy with it. My left one is set for July 6 ( my birthday). I'm excited to get it done. I would reccomend Dr Neu. He's the best.

I have been seeing Dr. Neu for a few years and totally trust him with my eyesight. I know he will do the best possible to keep Wet-AMD from progressing. Even though it is a 3 Hour drive for us, I cannot imagine going to the other doctor.
