Lasik Surgery reviews in Westminster

I had the first of 3 or 4 planned eye surgeries with Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
in Sept., 2014, and had additional appointments scheduled. Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
had a health issue and was cancelling various appointments for several months, leading to a lengthy leave of absence. Although Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
knew well in advance that he would have to cancel all of his appointments for at least the entire month of November, 2014, he delayed notifying his patients until shortly before their appointments and wrote that it was due to an unforeseen circumstance. His office refused to re-schedule my appointments with Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
, did not refer me to another eye surgeon, and offered me only an office visit with his Physician's Assistant. This delay prevented me from completing my
surgeries and improving my vision in 2014. I will pay thousands of dollars for an additional insurance deductible in 2015.
Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
's delay in notifying me and his failure to refer me for appropriate care elsewhere were just two examples of a poorly run office and lack of consideration for the patient. Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
diagnosed me with a rare
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
disease, explained it, and instructed me to sign up for surgery; I asked for written information on the disease and the surgical procedure, but they
said that there was no patient information. His employee sent me to purchase a $108 prescription which I did not need, and I have never opened the bottle. I posted a question in his online Message Center about my medications, but no one responded. They gave me printed post-op instructions to use an eye medication but did not warn that it would cause blurry vision; when
I contacted Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
's office to report my blurry vision, a tech gave me medical advice that was different from what Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
wanted me to do. When Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
wanted to check my post-surgical eye again in 4 weeks, the scheduler couldn't get me in before 6 weeks. After Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
cancelled my appointments, I requested that my records be sent to another ophthalmologist and to me; the records were not sent in a timely manner, and they charge 50 cents per page to give patients their own records. My usual time in the waiting room was 45 minutes to 1 hour with additional waiting time in the dilation and
exam rooms for a total of 2-1/2 to 3 hour office visits. A sign says to notify the receptionist if you have been waiting for longer than 15 minutes, but they don't do anything about it.
Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
is a knowledgeable physician. He provided me with excellent advice and surgery for which I am grateful. I would be willing to overlook many of the inconveniences at his office in order to receive his expert care. However, the way that Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
treated me when he had a personal health issue
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
me to believe that he had priorities other than my best eye care, and I could no longer trust him. I do not know the nature of his health issue or how it has affected his ability to take care of his
patients in the past, at present, or in the future.

It is a father/son practice. One of the sons does the surgeries and the other is the optometrist. I was quite satisfied with their service. They are extremely professional and efficient. The surgeries went well and were satisfactory. My only complaint is that after the procedure I may have been given the wrong glasses prescription. I ended up having to have my prescription re-done. I had no problem scheduling an appointment for when I needed. The entire office works very well together. Each patient goes through a number of different processes and they are efficient at getting you through that. There is no paperwork and everything is kept on a computer system.

Had

with Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
in January and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff and doctor are very nice. Did not have to wait more than 5 minutes for any of my visits from consult to post op. If the doctor is not in the room a couple of minutes after you are there for him he apologizes for the wait. All of his staff are helpful and friendly. I highly recommend them. I am very happy with my new vision :-)

Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
though being a little awkward is obviously highly intelligent and took his time explaining my options and the effectiveness for any treatment for me as well as the differences in the different kinds of treatments available to me. He was honest when indicating that because of the extent of my nearsightedness it would be unlikely that treatment would fully fix my vision but that it could greatly improve it. I've never had a more thorough eye exam in my life and have made his office my regular eye clinic because I've never felt like anyone took so much care in considering the health of my eyes. I would recommend their services over and over again.

The service went poorly. They totally messed up my vision. The nurse I spoke with before going in to the procedure said she did not think the surgery would work for me. The doctor said the nurse did not know what she was talking about and he was doing the surgery anyway. The surgery was excruciating and the pain reliever did not work at all. They did nothing to help me though the surgery. He had a poor attitude and I would never try

surgery again because of the job they did. I would advise others to not ignore the negative reviews as I did. Staff-b

Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
is a very large office. I made an appointment with Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
. The office staff sent me paperwork to complete and return to them before the appointment which was very convenient. They also explained to me by phone which doctor it would be best for me to see since I was coming mainly for a routine eye check and contact lens evaluation.
Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
took a lot of time with me and found some potential problems that may need attention in the future. She stressed that these were age-related and not anything to be overly concerned with at this point. She said that basically my eyes are healthy. She suggested treatment of warm compresses I can do at home for a slight inflammation of the rims of my eyelids and talked about dietary suggestions for maintaining healthy eyes and eyesight.
She gave me new contact lenses as I wasn't happy with my old prescription, gave me a new eyeglass prescription, and we'll follow up on the contacts in a few weeks. She is committed to getting me the best contacts for my astigmatism and has ordered contacts that she thinks will be best for me. In the meantime, the ones she gave me are a big improvement over what I was wearing.
Overall, the

Recommended new prescription, which followed a prescription change from six months earlier. My eyes are changing and I have some indication of cataracts. Did refer me to fellow doctor within clinci for possible surgery. Attempted to schedule before year end but timetable became too ambitious was cancelled the day before. This did not involve Dr.

The morning of the the first surgery, I saw and talked to Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
. The surgery, on my right eye, was successful. At the post-op appointment, Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
said I had responded well to the procedure. (I should add that this surgery cost me almost $1000 above Medicare.)

The second surgery (although covered by Medicare) on my left eye, was a nightmare from the start. Because they had not fully sedated me, I heard conversation among those in the room and even heard music playing. I joined in the conversation by commenting on one of Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
's ads that I had seen on TV the night before. The response from the doctor was not what I expected, and the voice was one I had not heard before. There was a kind of suppressed
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
because of the mix-up, and I realized that something was wrong. Indeed, I had not seen Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
before surgery--in fact, I had seen no doctors at all. At that time, I could only think of getting out of there, but I could not move. In the next instant, I was fully sedated.

The nightmare continued following the surgery. An ever-present glare plagued my eye, as well as a persistent pain. At the post-op appointment, I didn't see Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
, as before. I saw his son,
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
, who had been added to the staff some time after I first inquired about surgery. He seemed unconcerned about the pain and the glare. At one point, he exclaimed that the eye looked so good that he would be proud to say that he done the surgery. At that point, I just wanted the nightmare to end.

But the nightmare went on. When I insisted on seeing Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
, the father, I was stonewalled and told that he only did surgery. When I did see him, some time later, I asked, "Did you operate on my left eye." He stammered and said, "I can't remember." With help from his nurse, a document was found but I could not find his name/initials. Later, after much delay by
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
's staff, including an attempted physical intervention by his personnel manager (
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
), I got a copy of the surgical report , and the initials are that of the son,
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
.

I reported the matter to the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners. In time, they sent a reply, saying that they could not support Board action against "Dr.
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
'" medical license." I responded, pointing out they had investigated the wrong doctor. Their response was to send what was labeled as "corrected letters."

I write this review as a warning. Why have I waited this long to speak out when my experience occurred in 2012? Because I recently received an email from a friend, who told me that she was contemplating cataract surgery with
Westminster Lasik Surgery Provider Name Locked
. She went on to write that her optometrist told her to insist on having the father or walk out. Based on my experience, that's my advice, too.

Better yet, don't walk in. End the nightmare before it begins.
