I was very pleased with the care I received from Milwaukee Eye Care. Dr. Foote was detailed when talking about cataract surgery. My surgery went very well and I am very happy with the results. Dr. Foote called me at home the day of the surgery to ask how I was doing. I was very impressed,

Dr. Peter Foot performed cataract surgery on my left eye in 1999. Last February, 21 years later, Dr. Ann Stechschulte, Stiles Eye Care, Overland Park, Kansas informed me that the reason I had vision problems was because the artificial lens inserted by Dr. Foot was rubbing against the iris inside the left eye. I can recall waking up during the procedure and having Dr. Foot shout "look down, look down!" I looked down, the lens was inserted in the left eye, and a stitch closed the incision in the eyeball. He was the leader of that medical team that day, and he selected the Anesthesiologist from North Shore Anesthesiology. For obvious reasons, his medical team selections left something to be desired. Intense pain ensued from corneal swelling later that day. At the Post Op visit the following day, Dr. Foot poo pooed the whole thing, placing his hand over his mouth to conceal smirk on his face. If surgical drama like this appeals to you, the good Dr. Foot is accepting new patients!! LOL

I received a very thorough examination. The staff continue to wipe machinery down and take all precautions to make me feel comfortable in light of the virus. Dr. Foote‘s professionalism and bedside manner makes me feel extremely safe in his care.

Despite a very busy practice, I have found Dr. Foote to be informed, highly professional with a superb inter-personal approach. I never felt rushed and I always felt that the needs of my vision lifestyle were of utmost importance to Dr. Foote. All of the pre-op process and the cataract surgery itself went very smoothly. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Foote for any eye care.

While Dr. Foote is obviously knowledgeable, it's a shame that he only performs procedures at Eye Surgery & Laser Center. I've been there twice and will never return. Last visit was dangerously bad. Ridiculously outdated protocols. Horrible nurses. No respect for patient rights and privacy. Will NOT follow your advance directives. I was rushed through in a very unprofessional manner prior to the procedure. Procedure was rescheduled twice, including the day before.
