in Birmingham, AL |
I had lasik surgery years ago in TN. The results were amazing!!! After moving to AL my husband decided to have lasik. We researched doctors and Michaelson's profile looked very knowledgeable. My husband had lasik. The results were no good at all. Vision was not good. We then found it hard to see Michaelson, he was always unavailable so you saw someone in his office. My husband now had astigmatism, still needed glasses. After 2 tweaks still in glasses. Please find a different surgeon.
