I received PRK surgery from Dr. Botelho and I am incredibly pleased with the entire process. I had to wait about a month for the initial visit, which initially I was disappointed about, but it was worth the wait. I'm glad I went with Dr. Botelho over the other MD's I was looking into as I never had...more
