Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Schlecht performed my Refractive lensectomy using LenSx with Panoptix implants. 18 hours post op I was 20/20 intermediate vision and 20/15 distance. I also do not need readers! Dr. Schlecht is a Mayo trained MD. Clearly, he is the best in his field which is why so many physicians send there own family members to see him and why other practices are flying him out of state to operate for them!

From the minute I walked in the door, I was greeted with a kind and caring staff. Every staff member took time to listen, and explain what was going to happen next, and readily answered all of my questions.

I went in for a cataract consultation and having had retina detachment wanted an honest opinion on whether surgery should be considered. I have one good eye that has the cataract, so I needed an honest opinion. Dr. Schlect did a thorough exam and told me I could wait or the cataract was ready to be removed. Since I have to work really hard to see, I am proceeding with the cataract removal. I would recommend Dr. Schley to anyone having eye issues.
