Patient Comments (2)
Toledo, OH |
I was refereed to Dr. Abowd to correct my drooping upper eyelids and lacrimal gland prolapse. I had the surgery on a May 12th and was back to work on May 16th (with sunglasses on to hid bruising). There was very little pain and I could not be happier with the results. Not only was a problem corrected but I look younger! Dr. Abowd and his staff are professional, very kind and considerate. I highly recommend Dr. Abowd!

I first saw Dr Abowd for my very "drooping " right eyelid. He was very professional and soft spoken. He addressed my issues and then we scheduled surgery. His office staff apparently have many requirements. Friendly, smiling, warm, knowledgeable and did I mention friendly? I've healed nicely with absolutely no problems! I know where I'm going next time I need him!! ( and the surgical center support staff were Awesome!!)
