I went to Dr. Long after unfortunately making a bad choice in doctors.. I had a blepharoplasty done in Huntsville with bad results. I then went to Dr Long for a revision after previous doctor couldn't fix my droopy eyelid.... He is a super nice guy and assured me on the first visit that he could fix my eyelid... Made another appointment for the revision and he corrected my eye in his office with no problem! Now it looks great!! I just wish I had went to Dr Long in the beginning..
I has ptosis surgery several years ago. Dr. Long has a great sense of humor and is a great surgeon. I went back last year and had my lower lids done. I am 70 and look as though I am fifty. Thank you Dr. Long for being hilarious and for being the absolute best doctor I know. He also does Crossfit and is in great shape.
Dr. Long was HIGHLY recommended to us by several other physicians for my daughter to have ptosis repair. She has already had one surgery that was unsuccessful. He was very personable and caring towards my 5 year old, making sure she was as comfortable as possible and answered all of her questions, as well as mine. We look forward to seeing the results.
