Patient Comments (12)
in Belpre, OH |
I had cataract surgery done by Dr. Lazer in both eyes. I was so scared for my first eye, and couldn't wait for my second eye. Everything was amazing in my opinion. I never felt a thing. Dr. Lazer really takes the time to come out and talk to you, to comfort you before your surgery. The office and surgery staff are phenomenal. I am very, very please.
in New Martinsville, WV |
The staff is very efficient. You just flow right through the office and your appointment is very smooth. I wouldn't even care how they acted, because my vision is so good after cataract surgery in both eyes.
in Marietta, OH |
Everything was good. I had both cataract and eyelid surgery. I know that I can see better now. I feel like my eyelid surgery had a great outcome. I don't have any heaviness over my eyes.
in Athens, OH |
I was very much informed at Dr. Lazer's office. There is plenty of reading material to read in the office and to take home. My cataract surgery was easy peasy! The worst part of the surgery is the drops. Otherwise, my vision is great after my surgery. If anyone is looking for a cataract surgeon, there is no question about it, go see Dr. Lazer.
in Elizabeth, WV |
The time I spend at Dr. Lazer's office is just fantastic. I knew when I couldn't see that I was ready to have my cataracts taken off. I am so happy that I don't need glasses to drive anymore. Dr. Lazer is a very caring doctor.
in Athens, OH |
I have not been disappointed in my office visits. They are very quick and thorough. Everyone in the office is very knowledgeable and helpful. I am someone that knows a lot about stress, and being at Dr. Lazer's office is stress free. I had cataract surgery and my vision after was even better than I expected.
in Vienna, WV |
I am very satisfied. The service in Dr. Lazers is great, I always feel like I am treated with respect. I am monitored for a variety of different things, and this is the best care I have ever had. I just recently had cataract surgery and I never knew I could see this well. I didn't know a life without glasses.
in Vienna, WV |
Dr. Lazers staff gives his patients great care while you are in his office. I had cataract surgery in both eyes and I felt like Dr. Lazer really explained things to me very well. I knew what to expect on follow ups. I would highly recommend Dr. Lazer to my friends and family.
in Paden City, WV |
My vision is really good after cataract surgery. I feel that Dr. Lazer did an excellent job at explaining things to me so that I can understand them. I think the whole staff is excellent and the office visits flow very smoothly. I wish I could get my other eye operated on sooner. I would recommend Dr. Lazer to anyone.

Office staff efficient and professional. Surgery staff put you at ease, thorough patient education, and caring.
in New Martinsville, WV |
Dr. Lazer did a wonderful job examining my eyes for cataracts and an excellent job on my cataract surgery. My surgery went very well and all of the nurses and staff were very nice to me and answered all of my questions. This is the first time that I can remember that I can actually see at a distance out of my left eye without glasses! It is truly an amazing feeling! I would highly recommend Dr. Lazer and his team of doctors for cataract surgery!
in Ravenswood WV |
Takes time with patients. Very knowledgeable, explains things in laymen terms, and seems to care about his patients well being. Took the time to call personally after my eye surgery.
