They had me waiting for more than an hour and than gave me a bunch of paperwork whereas as soon as I arrived I had asked them if I needed to fill any forms and they said no. Very rudely told that their systems are down so they could not see my files. This place sucks. Almost 2 hours later no one was able to help me. I had booked this appointment a long time ago and had asked them to email any forms they needed filled so I did not have to do it there. Was told my file was up to date. Now they say their files are not up to date so fill all the paper work again.

We appreciate all feedback, even when not so flattering. We strive to provide a positive and stress-free experience for every patient. However, recently we fell short of this goal due to a major, unexpected computer system event that caused the protracted wait time and necessitated additional paperwork for patients. Our patients' time is valuable and we extend our sincere apologies for the wait time. We are relieved to announce that our system is back up and running, and we’ve taken the steps to minimize the chances of a repeat episode of this frustrating encounter. Regardless, we invite patients to contact us with any questions or concerns. We are more than happy to assist. All the best!

I called to schedule an appointment and basically had to yell because the music in the background was really loud. The person I spoke with was listening to 107.5 song playing please don't send me forget me nots to help to me to remember. And I felt very rushed. Hope my visit to the facility is not as bad.

All feedback is very much appreciated, as it allows us to address any reported concerns and improve the care we deliver, and it serves as an important reminder for our front-line staff to always give our patients their full and undivided attention. Typically our front office and administrative staff set the stage for an pleasant patient experience, but we offer a heartfelt apology whenever we fail to measure up to any patient's expectations. Our door is always open to our patients to discuss solutions to any issue of concern.

The doctors here treat you like family. They are warm, welcoming and know what they are doing. It is clear that the entire staff have been very well trained in their professions. They all seem eager to answer any questions that you may have. Saying that I am extremely pleased with them would not do them enough service. I have, and will continue to, referred them to everyone I know.

WOW!!! I still can't believe I have 20/20 vision! It's WONDERFUL! BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT TO MYSELF EVER!!!! I've worn glasses since I was in 2nd/3rd grade and am now 51 and NO glasses or contacts. It is amazing! Dr. Woolfson and his staff are great. Everything was explained, multiple times, and many questions from all of us receiving surgery that day were answered. The gentlemen in the pre-op room with us was so sweet and so knowledgeable. As we heard the sounds of the laser going on in the O.R., he explained what was happening to us so that we would not be worried. My surgery lasted approximately 10-15 minutes at the most and I could see the clock, clearly I might add, immediately. It is amazing to wake up in the morning and be able to see! Thank you so much to all the staff! Your customer service is wonderful. I was also impressed that Dr. Woolfson came in, before the surgery, sat down with each of us and discussed our surgery, what he was going to do, and made sure we were ready to see the world a whole lot clearer. Thank you just does not seem to be enough for me. It's been 2 months since surgery and I am still amazed every morning. I recommend this for anyone and everyone who even thinks they want to be rid of glasses/contacts forever! No pain, nothing! If you can lay on your back and watch a red dot, you can have the surgery! It will change your life! Thank you Dr. Woolfson! It was and is an amazing surgery and I'm so glad I chose Woolfson Eye!

THANK YOU WOOLFSON!!!!! I was overly impressed with the entire process of my LASIK surgery at Woolfson Eye Institute. They communicated to me very clearly how the process works, and did a wonderful job answering all of my questions. Dr. Woolfson and the team is very professional and they really go out of their way to ensure you are comfortable. If you are reading this and considering visiting Woolfson Eye Institute, do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with them, you will be thankful you did :) Dr. Woolfson has done over 80,000 LASIK surgeries and is a true expert in his field. Even during the surgery Dr. Woolfson was talking through the process, what was happening, and what he was doing next, which was so comforting. The actual surgery was absolutely painless and very short. My only regret is not doing it sooner! Woolfson Eye Institute, I am forever grateful for your knowledge, expertise, and genuine care for your patients. I will be referring you to everyone!

Had cataract surgery...asked for monovision ..no one explained accommodation at my age which made my left eye is absolutely useless -can't see close-up or distance. Woolfson Doctor recommended contacts. So unhappy.. Can't drive at night. Have fallen twice. Right eye is wonderful, which is why I asked for monovision because I loved my lasik surgery. Not sure what my next step is...

We are very committed to fully answering patient questions about their medical condition and provide as much information as necessary about recommended corrective procedures. We are concerned any time we learn of patients experiencing side effects following their corrective procedures. In such cases, we always encourage our patients to return to our office so we can investigate and address their concerns. Following any surgical procedure, we want to be sure that our patients know to contact us if they experience anything out of the ordinary, or if they have questions. We are glad to share some general information regarding presbyopia, lens implants and monovision. To start with, presbyopia, or the loss of accommodation of the human eye, is an expected process that occurs due to natural aging. In this process, the lens in the eye loses the ability to change shape, typically beginning in the early 40s, thus affecting the ability to change focus from near objects to objects that are far away. Accommodation is totally absent after someone undergoes cataract surgery (unless a special lens is used). When someone is undergoing cataract surgery, several types of intraocular lens implants (IOLs) can be used—single power (called monofocal—not to be confused with monovision), multifocals or accommodating IOLs. Multifocal IOLs provide far and near vision; accommodating IOLs provide a small degree of something called pseudo-accommodation; and, a monofocal IOL can be used to correct either distance or near vision, but not both. When a patient has been successful with monovision via contact lenses, then monofocal IOLs with a monovision strategy often make sense. In monovision cataract surgery, one eye receives an IOL implant for near vision and the other eye gets a lens for distance. Typically, patients who have already adjusted to monovision with contacts do not have any trouble adjusting to IOL monovision. Nonetheless, as with most medical treatments, some side effects can be expected. One of the potential side effects of monovision is decreased ability to see at night. Another is loss of some depth perception. These are concerns we discuss with patients before offering monovision treatment. Occasionally, a patient will end up with a monovision correction that’s not identical to the correction they adapted to with contacts. When that happens, there are frequently solutions available to resolve the problem, and sometimes the solution can include another procedure. Prior to another procedure, it’s not unusual for a contact lens to be used for a repeat trial run to make sure that the next procedure has the highest likelihood for success.
