Doctor George is a terrific surgeon who did my cataract surgery last month. I am seeing better than I have in years. Thank you for taking the time to explain everything so I'd understand it. My new tecnis lenses are better than expected and I am so happy my friend recommended you for my surgery. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you and your staff.

Doctor George was very easy to talk to and knowledgeable about which Lasik procedure I should get done. He took the time to describe what my outcome would be, and the recovery. The procedure was quick and painless and I am happy I spent a little extra to get the Topo Lasik which they said was the best! I am seeing clearly for the first time in my life. Worth every penny.
