ABSOLUTELY AMAZING – CHANGED MY LIFE
This place is absolutely amazing. I was referred here by more than one person, and finally had Lasik this month after dragging my feet for over a year (stupid!). It has already changed my life (but you know it does, that’s why you’re here reading reviews).
Bottom line: this place is LOVELY. Everyone in this office is incredibly friendly and helpful– from the folks at the front desk to the doctors, every single person appears to love their job and be an expert in their field. This place makes you feel relaxed, confident, and well taken care of. It is, in short, fantastic.
I have to mention a few people personally– first of all, Keith (who did all of my initial eye exams) has the most generous spirit and goes the extra length to make you feel right at home. He put me at ease and made me feel welcome, and we were buds after just two short visits. He remembered me over a year after my first visit, and was so warm and friendly. He also has had Lasik surgery, so that made me feel at ease.
Next is Karen– she handled the billing piece AND was present during my Lasik procedure. Since I’m a midwife, I can only make an analogy here to birth. So, many women and families will hire a doula when they have their baby– a doula is a very knowledgeable, non-medical support person who helps provide guidance and support during labor and birth. Karen is absolutely the doula of the Lasik experience at LA Sight! During the procedure, she added calm, helpful guidance between Dr. Wallace’s explanations. She counted down during the times when I needed to focus on the light, and she provided that gentle encouragement that everyone needs when their experiencing something new and unsettling medically (like a doula does for birth!). Thank you, Karen– it was beyond helpful!
Dr. Tabanfar and I completely bonded because we both have twins– so it was a joy to see her both times that I did. She answered my questions thoroughly and was so friendly both times. She also gave me some great twin mom advice, as hers are a couple years older than mine (bonus!).
And finally, Dr. Wallace was fantastic. He was the exact dad-like figure you’d want to do your eye surgery. Calm, friendly, and oh so chill. He explained everything, made a few jokes, and was all around delightful.
This is THE place to have Lasik. Stop looking now, you found your people.
