We get feedback from our patients, but some of our favorites come from our friends.
Robert Watson, the owner of Patient Education Concepts, could have gone to over 8,000 ophthalmologists when it came time to have HIS femtosecond laser cataract surgery. He came to us. Click on this blog to read his touching letter and learn about cataract surgery after having had refractive surgery (like LASIK, RK) earlier in life!
Why did I finally decide YES to LASIK?
I get this question on the regular.
Out of all the things we always say we want to do or need to do, many people get consultations or research LASIK, but stay on the fence for some time. What was the deciding factor for me? READ MORE TO FIND OUT WHY!
Ms. Nancy Hamner saw her regular eye doctor every year in the beautiful Woodlands, Texas. As the mother of an optometrist, her vision was always something she considered and took good care of. She started to notice she couldn’t see street signs the same, but her vision issues didn’t seem really serious until she went on her yearly summer road trip with her husband in their motor home.
Usually considered the co-pilot, Ms. Hamner found she could not read the street signs to her husband while he was driving the motor home, not even during the day…
As you all know, we usually don’t take the time to sit in front of our computers and actually write a review when we had a GOOD experience.
We usually only take the time to login, create a username/password and type (very loudly and strongly) when we are MAD, ANGRY or feel like we were treated badly somewhere, whether it be a restaurant, doctors office or wherever.
We are happy to report that our happy patients have been sharing experiences with us that are not only positive but so beautiful. Their words make us realize why we wake up and do what we do every day.
You would be surprised at how many patients who have been diagnosed with a cataract stop driving at night completely. Or even scarier, the number of them that try to drive by taking back roads or just drive extremely slowly on main roads.
For Ms. Judy Jackson, she took the safer road, although she didn’t like it. “I did not trust my Night Vision at all, and just stopped driving at night completely.” Read below for more on Judy’s Laser Cataract Surgery Experience.
LASIK: Give yourself a gift this year. Better Vision? You deserve it! Use your FLEX dollars or your Health Savings Account before the end of the year!
We can write about what happens at our office any day of the week. We can explain to patients how LASIK works, how they will feel, the entire process. We can even show them videos and animations thanks to technology. However, hearing what happens from another party, in their own words, especially one of our patients is the most valuable, real feedback there could be. This was a testimonial a patient willingly shared on the internet and we are sharing with our followers! Thank you so much for the kind words but most of all for providing the story to future potential LASIK success stories! Please see below for a real-life LASIK experience from consultation to end!
Nothing speaks more highly when you are deciding whether you should make a decision for a medical procedure than when you hear from a patient that has gone through a similar experience.
Please read below. This is one of our keratoconus patients that was treated by Drs. Slade and Baker at our clinic. She chose to write this feedback on her own and we thank her for the amazing review!
Corneal Collagen Cross Linking is a major decision for patients that are dealing with keratoconus and we appreciate any words from patients that have gone through this procedure. Thank you for sharing!
As Dr. Baker summed it all up, “Wow. Some days are better than others.”
There are patient stories about surgery and then there are stories that bring you to tears and change your day. This is one of those. He brought tears to our own doctors eyes the day after his surgery. He brought tears to my eyes as he was standing outside of work this morning and sharing this. And after you look at the amount of patients Drs. Slade & Baker have treated over the years, you will learn, this only happens with a powerful story like this one.
READ THE FULL INCREDIBLE STORY!
We all know that we usually do not provide reviews for restaurants, doctors’ offices, stores, etc. unless we are unhappy or had a bad experience. So you know when someone takes the time to write about you, it’s because it must’ve been great!
Last night we were left an amazing review by an amazing patient. Thank you Travis, we love hearing from patients like you and we truly appreciate you taking your valuable time to share your experience! Congratulations on your bionic eye!
