Dr. Lobanoff is a wonderful Doctor that goes over and beyond any expectations to provide excellent customer service. He is very thorough and a perfectionist. He takes his time to address all your concerns and explains your condition and the best procedure to make it better. I have seen Dr. Lobanoff for years and I have total confidence in his care. He has a wonderful personalty and is the politest Doctor that I've ever met.

I am very impressed with Dr. Lobanoff. Extremely knowledgeable and excellent "bedside manner". He really makes you feel at ease throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Dr. Lobanoff to anyone considering Lasik. You won't be disappointed!!

I was very skeptical at first about LASIK after doing some online research, but the staff at North Suburban did a great job at making me feel comfortable and at ease during the whole procedure. This is my first time not having to put in a pair of contacts or wear glasses and I can see 20/20 again! Thank you so much Dr Lobanoff!!!!

I had Lasik this week with Dr. Mark Lobanoff. He is an extremely nice person and willing to answer any questions you have. I have wanted lasik for years but was too scared to actually do it. I am very nervous around needles and I hate going to the doctor. My experience couldn't have gone any smoother. I wasn't even at the clinic for an hour the day of surgery and I think the whole procedure took 5 minutes. Zero pain, just some slight pressure for about 20 seconds.

Very professional, informative, thourough and calm through the entire consult and procedure. Had I known the process was going to go as well as it did I would have had Lasik years ago!

I visited with 3 clinics to investigate having the Raindrop corneal inlay surgery and I knew within 10 minutes into the exam that I would choose Dr Lobanoff. The exam was more thorough than the others and afterwards Dr Lobanoff actually met with me to review the exam results versus an optometrist. It has now been 2 weeks post surgery and I have been seen by Dr Lobanoff for 2 follow up visits. He assures me that everything is looking great. I am extremely happy with Dr Lobanoff and his staff.

I had lasik a couple years ago and could not be more pleased with that decision along with the decision to have Dr. Lobanoff and his team take care of the procedure. The staff is great and Dr. Lobanoff made it very comfortable. Go see him! Dr. Mark Severt DDS

I would recommend Dr. Lobanoff over and over. He was so professional and knowledgeable on every. He covered everything I had questions on before I even asked. My actual lasik procedure was the easiest thing I've ever done. He talked me through the whole process and before I knew it I was done. I sat up and could read the clock on the wall! I walked in with -7.5 vision, I couldn't believe it. 24 hours after I was driving myself to my post op appointment and already seeing 20/15! Highly recommend.

Took the time to explain everything rather than rush through it all. Quick and easy and out the door. Dr. Lobanoff was so professional and friendly, made the process very comfortable.
in St Paul, MN |

Being VERY nearsighted (nearly blind) with progressing cataracts I finally had the courage to have the procedures with Symfony IOL implants. After careful research I chose Dr. Mark Lobanoff at North Suburban Eye Specialists. So happy with my decision! Trusted surgeon! Explains everything in detail before and after the procedure. Very caring professional! I now see like never before! Incredible results! Heartfelt THANK YOU from me, my husband & our two small children. May God bless you! :)

I am Very Satisfied with having my Lasik done by Dr. Mark Lobanoff at North Suburban Eye Specialists. I was always hesitant to have this done and Dr. Lobanoff and his staff are amazing at explaining the procedure, making you feel as if you are their only client and talking you thru everything during the procedure. I would recommend Dr. Lobanoff to anyone.

I could not recommend Dr. Lobanoff and his staff more. From the receptionist at the Blaine clinic who was so helpful to the consultation with Dr. Lobanoff. Dr. Lobanoff made me feel so confident with my decision to finally do the Lasik procedure and it was comforting to speak with him during the consultation as he answered every one of my questions (there was a lot) and I never once felt rushed. The procedure was pain free and I was seeing 20/15 the next morning- not even 24 hours after surgery!

I couldn't recommend anyone more than I do dr. Lobanoff and the rest of his team. They are very friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable. They very thoroughly explain the entire process and what to expect throughout. Do yourselves a favor and choose dr. Lobanoff and North suburban Eye specialists.
in Minneapolis, MN |
Dr. Lobanoff was very professional, calming and informative. I could tell immediately he's been doing this a long time and makes it a goal to make his patients comfortable. Many of my questions were answered before I even had to ask! All of the staff were friendly and helpful, and every one of them made sure I was comfortable during my procedure. I am less than 24 hours out from surgery and seeing better than 20/20 already! Very little discomfort and the eye drops are inexpensive.

I just had LASIK yesterday with Dr. Lobanoff. I am pain free with excellent vision the next day! I took a nap after the procedure yesterday and only had a little bit of watery eyes and discomfort but was fine by the evening. The whole team walked me through the whole process before, during, and after. The post op care is also simple and easy (eye drops). Thank you to the whole team at North Suburban Eye Specialists!
