I would like to take this time to thank you for the excellent treatment I was given by you and your staff over the past two years. You have been nothing but professional in your diagnosis, surgery, and aftercare for the cataract and cornea surgeries you performed on both my eyes.

Your knowledge of the latest technique in cornea transplants has made my life significantly better. With very little discomfort, and a much shorter recovery time, I was able to return to my normal activities (especially golf), in a relatively short period of time.

The gift of sight should never be taken for granted. I thank God there are surgeons like you that can help give that gift. I certainly would recommend you to anyone for the very best eye care.
