Very positive experience. Dr. Nelson and staff very professional, while being personable and friendly. Facility is very clean and well equipped. Any questions or concerns were addressed prior to surgery and the procedure was explained in a comprehensive manner. Today is the day after surgery and I'm writing this review without the need for eye glasses.
