I felt that I was in expert hands


I've had glasses for several decades, so I finally made up my mind to pursue LASIK treatment. Although a little out of the way, I did the research and was impressed with Turner Eye Institute and Dr. Patel. After my initial consultation, I was given a preparatory regimen which I followed to the "T". The consultation specialist informed me of what to expect with the operation, potential side effects, and post-op activities. On the day of the surgery, I felt that I was in expert hands. The entire process went smoothly. I followed the post-op instructions and now, one month later, I'm still going strong. This has been one of the best decisions I've made and I can't speak highly enough of the process and Dr. Patel and his team.

No more glasses!
Excellent vision.
Positive life outcome.
Throughout the operation, everyone checked on me and answered my questions. I felt safe and cared for.

The procedure can be unnerving to some. Talk to your LASIK counselor and ask many questions. This procedure isn't the best choice for everyone.
The procedure is pricey. I used CareCredit, which will allow me to pay over 2 years, similar to a car payment.
You MUST follow all instructions (pre and post op) in order to ensure a successful operation.

A rewarding, painless experience


I had a cataract removed from my left eye by Dr.Patel and he was wonderful. His staff performs their duties in a cheery, efficient manner and patient counselor Sylvia Petritsch thoroughly explained the procedure Dr.Patel performed and the fee for my surgery. I decided to go with the upgrade to laser and Sylvia explained what my out of pocket fee would be for the upgrade. I was apprehensive the day of my surgery but both the anesthesiologist and Dr.Patel met with me in the prep room prior to the surgery and I felt relaxed due to Dr.Patel's calming manner. The procedure was quick and painless and I didn't experience any complications afterwards. Dr.Patel and Turner Eye Institute Staff made my procedure a rewarding, painless experience and I will return next year for cataract removal surgery on my right eye.

The staff and Dr. Patel has been nothing but kind and very professional. Had both eyes done! Don't need reading glasses! Feels good just to read and not always reaching for glasses.
