Patient Comments (3)

He was my doctor before retirement. He provided my Eyecare for 27 years. He was one of the first doctors to diagnose my eye disease. Excellent quality of care. If I ever needed anything, he was there for me.

I would highly recommend Dr Hedstrom. He did surgery on my eye to remove a cataract and did an excellent job. I have had no problems with my eye since the surgery. He is a very competent surgeon.
