Annual Review
This is my third year as a patient of Dr Samuelson's. I'm very please with the care and professionalism by both he and his staff. Dr Samuelson is very through in his exams and extremely easy to communicate with. He takes the time to explain what is happening to your eyes and what the different options are for you. I am very thankful when I have my once a year visit and exam. It is very reassuring to know he is my doctor and is on top of everything going on with my eyes.

Excellent Kind Care
Very professional doctors, nurses, and staff in Minnesota Eye Consultants, always on time with big smile and take good care of every detail in my appointments. Dr. Samuelson gave me all the attention I needed and answered all of my questions which made me feel very comfortable and confident that he was the best doctor for my cataract surgery. He is very kind, professional, and confident. He made me really feel very happy with the much better vision I have after the surgery. I appreciate him very much and wish him the best from the bottom of my heart. I have already strongly recommended him for all of my friend who might need help from an eye doctor.

Bilateral Cataract extraction.
I was very pleased with the outcome of my cataract extractions procedures done by Dr. Samuelson. He explained everything very thoroughly in my appointments with him prior to the procedures. The procedures seem to have been successful as in my followup appointments, I was told that my eyes have healed well and my vision is very good. At this time, I no longer need to wear glasses for distance vision and am able to read at books, etc. at an arms length away without needing to wear my reader glasses (close up reading of very small print does require readers as I was told would be the case). I am grateful for my eyesight and very thankful for the skills of Dr. Samuelson.
