    The doctor was very attentive to my concerns about having anesthesia and willing to work with my work schedule. The results were better than what I had expected. Everyone in the office was very nice and the follow up went great. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have eye lid surgery. thanks

    Dr. Laquis did my eyelid surgery. I followed all of his post-op procedures and recommendations and had no complications at all. I would highly recommend Dr. Laquis.

    Dr. LaQuis messed up the repair of my eyelids, so much so that my eyes could not close properly. The job was done so poorly that I had to go to Bascomb Palmer to have a top eye surgeon repair both eyes. While I was Bascomb Palmer for my surgeon appointments, at 2 separate times, I met 2 former Dr. LaQuis patients who had far worse results than I did. I was fortunate enough to only have 1 surgery to repair the problem on both eyes, the other had 2 and the third had 4! CAUTION!
    in Naples, FL |
    Following my procedure from Dr. Laquis I spent months going to other Ophthalmologist / plastic surgeons for opinions of how my eyes could be corrected. I had drooping eye lids causing tearing. My subsequent procedure resulted in a two hour operation to correct my issue. I had to endured the pain of a skin graft of skin cut from the roof of my mouth to build up my lower lids. My eyes did not close totally following the Laquis operation. There are others out there who had to do a redo!

    If it were not for the office help you would not know that there was a Dr. The help really make all of the vital decisions.

    I had eyelid surgery to correct drooping lower lips and now the problem is worst, I have to have it corrected by another surgery and definitely not with Dr. Laquis. Very disappointed.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
