Elizabeth M says:

I have worked in the past with four different LASIK surgeons and I have seen hundreds of patients both before and after laser eye surgery. I can honestly say that I have never felt as comfortable with any other doctor as I did with Dr. Wallace.

When you work in a medical office, you get a chance to see everything that goes on, in great detail. After seeing the quality of care that Dr. Wallace provides, and the vision outcomes that his patients achieve, I came to trust him such that I would consider having him perform LASIK for me. Even though I had only worked with Dr. Wallace for about four months, I knew I would have LASIK with him because I felt so comfortable with him.

I have been wearing contacts for several years and I've gotten tired of the hassle and discomfort of them, so I decided to have the LASIK done.

Even though I've seen hundreds of other patients have LASIK, I was still rather nervous about my own surgery. While I was in the laser room Dr. Wallace walked me through the procedure step by step, which made me feel at ease and allowed me to be more relaxed than when I first went in.

I now have 20/10 Vision in both eyes. I have never felt better knowing I made the right decision in having the procedure with Dr. Wallace. Thanks to him I can live life with out corrective lenses.

Doctor Wallace says:

To be candid, and in the interest of full disclosure, we should tell you that Elizabeth did not pay full price for her LASIK, as she was employed in my office when she had her treatment. Having said that, I did tell her that (a) she did not have to write any 'endorsement' letter if she did not feel inclined, and (b) if she did, I wanted it to be absolutely honest.

We are all thrilled that she has done so well.
