Friendly enough but patients are herded in and out like cattle, not pleased with my Lasik surgery as my eyesight is worse now than before. Will look for another provider for my other eye.

Worked on eye lids. One eye lid open very wide. One eye can hardly open. Very poor workmanship. Do not recommend.
