I had two friends recommend Dr. Mandel and I couldn't be happier that I followed their advice. Not only is he comforting and lovely throughout the process of surgery, he is also thorough and precise. I went in to PRK surgery legally blind and I now have perfect vision. I now consider Dr. Mandel my eye doctor. I know other people who didn't use Dr. Mandel, and their results weren't stellar. You can't go wrong with him.
I had a great PRK experience with Dr. Mandel and his entire team! They were incredibly thorough and I felt like I could trust their expertise with every step. My eyes did not respond normally to the steroids after the procedure and I was incredibly nervous that my sight would never be what I wanted. Dr. Mandel assured me that I was just taking longer to heal...and he was right! Within a few weeks, I could see clearly! It was such an amazing decision to get PRK with Dr. Mandel!
Dr Mandel came highly recommended from several friends. I consulted with several Dr's and was really impressed with the diligence of his staff and his reassuring consultation. I definitely made the right choice because I could see perfectly from the moment the procedure was completed and now have 20/15 vision.
I'm overall extremely pleased with my LASIK results & the whole procedure. Very courteous staff and Dr. Mandel is very knowledgeable. A+ would get lasers shot into my eyes again
