Patient Reviews (2)
in Vernal, UT |
He's been my Dr for many years. I can't say enough good about him and his staff. Without his Care for my blepharospasms I'd be a recluse. I look better than I did 10 years ago. He is amazing!
in SALT LAKE CITY |
My experience was & continues to be AWFUL! He is not interested in the patients well being. I went in for my eyes and was convinced by him and his staff that I needed more. My forehead/eyes are still numb & tingling one year after surgery. I have to wear a headband at night to sleep. The pain is with me all day, everyday. He knew all along the risks but didn't tell me when I asked. He botched several other areas but just gave my money back, very little help for the hell I continue to go thru.
