I had the most wonderful experience within Dr. Tunis and his staff! I had lasik done on both eyes. Dr. Tunis was very honest about the procedures, not once did I feel like I was being sold any service I didn't need. He and his staff are very kind, patient and informative. I felt very safe and comfortable throughout the whole process. I'm so happy with my results!

Dr. Tunis did surgery on my husband eyes years ago and when I needed surgery and was given a choice, I chose him also. He is an excellent doctor who cares about his patients and takes the time to explain everything he is going to do and why. He also gives his patients a sense of security. I would choose him again and would recommend him to everyone.
