I had my Lasik eye procedure done in April of this year. It was a life changing opportunity. My vision is very clear, no headaches and no side effects. Dr. Hufnagel and his staff were very professional and they took good care of me. I highly recommend Stahl Eye care to all of my family and friends.

I had PRK surgery at Stahl last month, and Dr. Hufnagel was my surgeon. Before I decided to have the surgery at Stahl, I visited both Stahl and Weil Cornell Medical Center for free consultation. Though Weil Cornell Medical Center is of high prestige and very well-known, I selected Stahl for its atmosphere of professionalism, caring and warmth. I made the very right decision! Dr. Hufnagel is an excellent surgeon, and he did a superb job. I am very happy with my surgery!!!

I got my Lasik done in October 2000 and have had 20/20 vision in both eyes since (from 20/200 in each eye). I go back every year for a check-up, I've take my mom to see him for her cataracts and my now teen daughter is a patient as well (eyeglasses only, maybe soon contact lenses). Dr. Hufnagel is TOPS! I recommend Stahl Eye Center whenever I can. They have a very pleasant and professional office staff as well and helpful eyeglass staff.

After several years and several different doctors, I finally found the doctor that was right for me. I was very nervous about lasik surgery since I had previously torn one of my retinas. Dr. Huffnagel was fantastic. Very soothing and patient and did a great job. I only wish I had found him sooner.

From the first time I saw Dr. Hufnagel, I knew I was speaking with an expert. I have an on going issue which is being treated. I have visited quite a few different docs, but he is my last. He's the best, and I owe him my vision.

I went for my first eye exam with Dr. Hufnagel and he never even introduced himself when he walked in the room. I started flinching while he was doing the exam so he got annoyed and rolled back in his chair, huffed/puffed and turned away until he tried again. I think if you are in a certain field, you should be understanding and patient. I went back for a follow-up and asked if I had what another Dr thought I had and he goes "well if you do, it's very minimal". I never went back after that.
