Patient Comments (2)

Be absolutely positive that before any eye surgery the anesthetist is made aware of any an all of your medical conditions and that it is made crystal clear that you DO NOT want to feel any pain or wake up during the procedure. {speaking from experience}

He's a great doctor who explains conditions concisely. He does not make the patient feel awkward when in examination (so close and face-to-face) and takes his time with the patient. I've been his patient for three years and they have been three years of satisfaction.
