I was a very early patient - Dr. Speaker's office was downtown at the hospital and the LASIK machine was in Long Island! I have nystagmus, had high myopia and astigmatism, and was a complicated patient. Dr. Speaker was wonderful and, after 20 years, I am still amazed with his skill and kindness. I highly recommend Dr. Speaker. I moved from NY and wish he were still my doc!

I've been going to Dr. Speaker for more than 25 years. The corneal transplants he performed on me in 1995 were excellent and he has been providing quality care ever since.
