I feel blessed and grateful to have had such a professional and wonderful team. Dr. Rodrigo is the best Ophthalmologist I have ever met, his professional ethics, his knowledge, and his humanity make his work excellent, and together with his team they exceed all expectations. If he could give more stars, he would gladly do it, I have no words to thank for the attention received. Dr. Rodrigo has given me back the light, and my quality of life. Many thanks to him and all his team, many blessings.

I had my Lasik surgery 3 days ago with Dr Belalcazar and it was excellent, the results are amazing. I can highly recommend Dr Belalcazar and his dedicated team. The whole process was explained in detailed by the Dr before and after the procedure. You may have to wait a little to see him but it is worth every minute. Thanks a million !!!!!

A total failure. Five hours of waiting for my son's consultation. When I called to see why my son's pupils had not dilated they had recorded the procedure as having been done. the optometrist did not allow me to communicate with the doctor. Her deal was sarcastic towards me. He proceeds to test the contact lenses for the child I had paid for never told him.. In short, with so many bad practices I ended up losing confidence.
