"I tried to make an appointment but was told they didn't accept my insurance. My insurance provider told me they were in the network. The office staff argued" saying they didn't accept my insurance. Finally, I asked my insurance company to call them which they did. The doctor's office then called me back and said, "Oh yea. We accept your insurance". I spent nearly two hours on the phone trying to simply confirm they accepted my insurance (Blue Cross Vision) and make an appointment. If they have this much difficulty on
tasks like this, I'm certainly not going to trust my eye health with them. On top of all of these problems, they were very unfriendly. I can understand a mistake but to then be rude about it? I'll pass.

"I wanted to wait a year before doing this review to see how my eyes have done. I cannot express enough praise for this doctor and facility. The
" Surgery was very quick and extremely successful. I've worn glasses since the third grade and my eyesight was so bad I was considered legally blind. Now I have 20/15 vision in both eyes. I've had no complications from this procedure, just perfect vision - actually, better than perfect. This facitlity and staff are top notch! The surgery package comes with follow-up visits for a year. In additon, they were able to provide financing with affordable monthly payments. The surgery was quick and recovery time was minimal. I did have halos for several months afterwards, but they assured me this was normal, and, indeed, it was normal and has gone away completely. I highly recommend this facility and doctor for
surgery. I am 100% satisfied with their service and my vision.

examined my eyes and wrote a prescription for lenses on 5/19/15. I picked up my glasses several weeks later but had trouble with my vision. After trying to adjust for 2 weeks I went back to the optician and he ordered new lenses with a different set point. I tried those glasses for several weeks, but they were worse so I returned them and went back to the original lenses. However, I continued to have problems so I went back a third time and Dr.

did another exam, giving me another prescription. I now have those glasses and am quite pleased with them. I appreciate this office working with me until I had glasses that work and that the physician urged me to continue to let them know if I were dissatisfied.

My sons right eye is fairly useless after doctor butchered him. He has permanent ghosting as well as severe irregular astigmatism and had to change his major in college from Math because he cannot differentiate numbers. He could not continue working as a computer programmer either. This procedure from this doctor had ruined my sons life. And dr

Severe irregular astigmatism by definition means the doctor screwed up and research shows refractive surgery is the number 1 cause. Lastly dr

It went well. I would say the only thing that really bothered us was the the feel of being rushed in the surgery center. Like cattle being herded. I felt like some of the nurses were so routine in their work they just werent that friendly and seemed super rushed. ALOT of people there and you feel unimportant. Reminds you of "take the money and run"

Very Professional in the way they handle every aspect of the surgery from start to finish. Extremely friendly staff and nice facility. You leave feeling like they genuinely care about how your eye sight turns out. I came in next to blind seeing far away and now after a little over a month I see 20/15 with no glasses. Highly Recommended!

, for example, I got my nearsightness fixed, but still have trouble seeing close up because I am over 40 and my eyes have changed since I was young. The intial examination was very thorough and all of the folks I was in contact with that day were super competant and friendly. I got to watch a very informative video that answered a bunch of questions I wouldn't not of even thought of asking. Then the optomitrist evaluated my eyes. He was very thorough and told me honestly what I could expect if I chose to have the surgery. I met with the financing/scheduling person and decided to make an appt. for a week later for the procedure. During that week stopped by another provider (Midwest) just to compare. I liked the office, the people, the location, the optomitrist, and the price much better at

. All my questions (and more) were answered, the results I could expect were repeatedly stated, and the professionals were all kind, compassion, and super friendly. I never felt hurried, rushed, or pressured, which was great and the office on

is nice. Dr.
Blaine Lasik Surgeons Provider Name Locked
was super awesome and I felt 100% secure with my eyes in his capable hands. He examined my eyes before the surgery to double check the numbers of the intital eye exam. He told me what to expect during the surgery and what type of results I could also expect. He is about my age so he gets the vision challenges I face!! During the surgery the nurse told me exactly what was going on and 'counted' through each step so that I would know how much longer (always 31 secs or less) which made the surgery super bareable. It only lasted a few minutes and I saw better immediately. Dr. M called that night to check up on me, and the followup so far has been great. I have no regrets and thank

My wife and I were very unhappy with the consult. The first thing they asked my wife to do was answer questions like which newspapers she reads and which radio stations she listens to. These kinds of questions are inappropriate in a medical setting and designed to gather information so they know where to advertise to us. Yuck!
Then my wife was taken back for the eye tests and scans. I then came into the room with her when Dr.

came in to talk to her. The good news was that she is definitely a candidate for

. The bad news is that Dr.
Blaine Lasik Surgeons Provider Name Locked
seemed all too eager to get out of the room. He barely spared 15 minutes to talk to my wife and answer her questions. Trying to get him to hang around by asking questions as he was walking out the door didn't work to keep him around either.
The biggest problem came from his assistant. After Dr.
Blaine Lasik Surgeons Provider Name Locked
left she gave us pricing and proceeded to answer some more questions we had. Then she proceeded to bash the competition telling us that they tell people "crazy" things like staying out of water for 1 month, and drinking no alcohol. Dr.
Blaine Lasik Surgeons Provider Name Locked
she told us feels that a week out of water is all that is necessary which is garbage! The FDA and American Academy of Ophthalmology both recommend 2-4 weeks out of water to prevent bacterial and fungal infections. He feels that every one else is wrong. Granted this information didn't come from the doctor, it came from her, but she is there representing him in a professional capacity!
She also used scare tactics by telling us to worry about other surgeons not living in the valley, and that Restore Vision Center puts pressure on people and makes them pay money for the free consultation if they don't set up an appointment for the surgery right away. This was completely false.
The whole experience left us feeling completely uneasy and stressed. My wife decided she would not be going there.
By contrast my wife had an excellent experience with Restore Vision Centers the next day. They gave us plenty of time to ask questions, didn't rush us, and didn't make us pay for the free exam even though we schedule a surgery.
