Dr. Phelps and his entire staff were outstanding. I had a tag on my eyelid and the whole procedure was thoroughly explained to me. It was over and I was waiting for them to start. Very friendly and professional. Would highly recommend him.

I had External Levator Advancement with Dr. Phelps in March 2020; his kindness, care and concern is amazing. He is a wonderful surgeon and even though my eyes are still healing, I can already tell that the procedure was successful. For the first time in quite a while I have peripheral vision. I highly recommend Dr. Phelps.

Dr Phelps restored my peripheral vision and took 10 years off my appearance. He exceeded by expectations with the clinical outcome and amazed me in his dedication to my aesthetic goals. I can't say enough about him as a gifted surgeon and wonderful person.

After 2 other surgeries with others, Dr. Phelps completely eliminated my tri-chi-a-sis in both eyes. I have not had any eyelash problems since then close to 6 months ago. He is outstanding!

My eye lids began to droop at a fast rate, and the amt. of light coming in,& my field of vision shrank quite quickly. My optomoloist suggested I see Dr. Paul Phelps for treatment. After a few months of observation, he deemed it was time to take action. He performed an eyelid reduction (?) procedure in an OR. As soon as he was done, and I removed the ice bags, I could see far more clearly, my field of vision had improved. Over the healing week, I continued to see improvements. I am thrilled.

I cannot recommend Dr. Phelps highly enough. He is not only skilled at what he does, but has an amazing bedside manner. He operated on my five year old and made us as parents, and my daughter feel at ease and as comfortable as possible. Hopefully we will not have an eye issue again, but if we do I would not hesitate for a second calling Dr. Phelps. I absolutely appreciate him.

Dr. Phelps is very skilled and I like the results of the 3 surgeries. Additionally, Dr. Phelps is disarming, charming and easy going. I never felt I was being talked down to or that my concerns were unfounded. These procedures were totally pain free. I have never before been so at ease with doctors and hospital visits. Dr. Phelps has a delightful sense of humor...that's nice.

Dr. Phelps removed a mole on my face that has bothered me since childhood. It healed without any scarring. He put in a few stitches in that dissolved on their own, so no painful suture removal! I'm so happy with the results! He had a nice bedside manner and explained everything to me. Would definitely recommend him to my friends and family!
