Dr. Botelho really cares about his patients and does everything he can to be informative.

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 any concern while working with him. The entire process was explained well and he even personally checked up on me the night after the procedure. 1 month out and I now have 20:20 vision. Just AMAZING.
