Dr. El-Yassir is a total professional, as well as pleasant, caring and extremely competent. He explains everything clearly and allows time for questions to make sure there are no surprises. He performed my first procedure 4 weeks ago and my second eye this week on Wednesday. Both produced excellent results. I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend him!
