Great nurses...excellent facilites...Dr. Bearden is an excellent no nonsense surgeon. I really liked getting a personal follow-up call after the operation. I was also provided with both post and pre-op instructions with written answers to my questions. Lloyd Baker

Dr. Brandon has performed eye lid surgery and tear duct repair . He makes you feel very comfortable and explains everything in terms you can understand. Would highly recommend him to everyone. Wish he could do all my surgeries.

I had a great experience with Dr. Bearden. My eyelids were drooping severely to the point of not being able to see clearly. He performed a procedure to give me back my lost field of vision and made them look very normal. I can see so much better. It's been a year or more, but I am thankful...more

I'm sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I've treated hundreds of botox patients and performed thousands of botox injections over the last 15 yrs, and the vast majority of patients are very happy, appreciate my attention to detail, and gladly return regularly for repeat injections. Chronic pain after botox is not a typical side effect, so you should seek care to explore another cause for this. Call my office at 804-287-4276 if we can help further or refer you to another doctor.
