Phillip Shares His LASIK Thoughts

"First, I want to humbly thank our lord and savior for blessing Dr. Michelson and his staff with the knowledge and skills to do what they do! I did a lot ... and I mean a LOT ... of research and contemplating on where I would even consider having this surgery done at, but eventually I started comparing everyone else to Dr. Michelson. So, with all of the research and information that I had gathered up, I had almost certainly made up my mind. I decided to ask my eye doctor back home, just who he would recommend, if I ever had the thought of having LASIK done. He instantly said that he wouldn’t trust anyone else other than Dr. Michelson at UAB Highlands. So, I met with Dr. Michelson and was a candidate. I trusted him to perform my LASIK on 10/4/18 and as of today I have 20/20 vision! I honestly cannot find the words to thank him enough!

He performed my surgery at 9am and not only did he make sure that I was comfortable during the surgery and as I was leaving his office, but he personally called me the same night around 8pm! He called to check and see how I was doing! I have never had a doctor or surgeon take their own personal time to call me, just to make sure that I was doing ok. Secondly, the staff are beyond AWESOME! I never once felt pressured to sign my name on anything, have something scheduled, or feel like I was being forced into doing the surgery simply because I had walked through the doors.

Last, but not definitely not least .... Teri! She made me feel totally comfortable during a rather nerve racking time. She was there from my initial screening just to see if I was a candidate, to the day of the procedure, to the follow up and so on, she has been simply amazing! You will not find anyone more caring and professional. Thank you, Teri!

Dr. Michelson and his staff are second to none. Again, I cannot recommend them enough!

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone at Michelson Laser Vision. You guys gave me 20/20 vision and I will now be able to see my new born son grow up, without the constant struggle to see! I promise you that if you’re thinking about possibly having LASIK done, give Dr. Michelson a call! Believe me, I did all of the research and can’t stress it anymore. Please do yourself a favor and go to the absolute best ! You will be so thankful that you did 🤘🏻”
