A friend recommended Dr. Behler to me, and after my own excellent results with him, I have recommended him to others who are also highly satisfied. His knowledge and skill make him an excellent ophthalmologist and eye surgeon. His outstanding staff makes scheduling appointments, handling insurance, getting questions to the nurse easy. I love the results of my cataract surgeries and recommend him highly.

I highly recommend Dr. Behler and the BehIer Eye and Laser Center. Unlike the facility that took care of my husband's cataract surgery, which was just too much-- there were greeters and guides to assist you as you navigated their elaborate facility, Dr. Behler's is a comfortable facility with kind helpful staff that seems to take a great personal interest in your care.

Outstanding! My experience was stellar! I can see again and it is amazing! The office staff were polite, professional and accommodating. I don't see wait time as a relevant concern, this isn't fast food it it eye care by a premier physician! I should be honored to wait.

I have gone to Dr. Behler for 12+ years and have always gotten impeccable service. When I decided to have Laser vision correction, I spoke to local physicians, looked at the research on different procedures and decided on Dr. Behler. Dr. Behler, Jane and the rest of his staff have always been friendly and willing to answer my questions. I have always found his equipment and surgery room immaculate. I highly recommend Dr. Behler and have done so many times.
