Terrible Doctor, terrible outcome, biggest regret of my life to have Lasik at AAPECS. Old technology and the surgeon performed on me what other ophthalmologists have said is an incredibly rare complication given today's technology- a decentered ablation. Has left me intolerable to contacts and worse vision than before.

Always has time to explain procedures thoroughly and answer questions. Gives you his home phone number in case of emergency. Makes you feel like you'e his only patient.
