Confused staff and broken machines

For all 3 pre op visits, the staff argued if I had to get measurements done or not, even what procedure I was getting! My 2nd visit they asked if I was here for glasses. No! Lasik! Their refraction machine broke 2x and they didn't realize til weeks later. The Lasik machine lost suction cutting my eye flap several times, I left with a ring of red busted vessels around my iris that lasted nearly 2 weeks. Oh and right before the procedure the doctor and 2 nurses were arguing on when I was supposed to take my valium. The nurses told me to wait til I got into the OR...and so when I got there, the doctor was about to start when I asked when should I take it because I was nervous. Way to relax a patient with all the arguing and confusion.

of course it's easy to make appointments, the want the business. However, the procedure lasted me 9 years. Now, after mono vision procedure, I'm back in expensive, multi-focal contacts. Never was mentioned this would happen. If I had known, I never would have had it done. Haven't gained much. Desk staff is rude, hapless, never has been helpful. Dr. B is very nice but there are much better docs I'm told. Would never recommend.

I have just had my monthly follow up appointment after having Lasik done. I have 20/20 vision now after having one eye for distance and one eye for close up. I am thrilled. Dr Bluestein is wonderful and so are her staff. I highly recommend her! Thank you Dr Bluestein!! I am so grateful and happy with my outcome.
