Denise Stevens, Laser Vision Correction Coordinator
Denise has counseled hundreds of patients through the life changing process of Laser Vision Correction. When asked for her thoughts, Denise said "Our success rate has been so high because of the care we take to answer all the patient's questions and our doctors don't just recommend LASIK for everyone. I had the procedure done in 1999, and it truly is a gift. I can give the patient first hand guidance through the decision, financing and post operative care. No one ever says I wish I never did this. Most say why did I wait so long?"
