The "Michael Jordan" of Ophthalmologists

I checked the internet reviews and selected Dr Kent Kirk for my vision problem. What a great choice that was. My vision was getting cloudy and I decided it was time for a checkup. I needed cataract surgery and Dr Kent Kirk performed that for me yesterday. The procedure took about 15 minutes and I felt no pain during the entire procedure. I had zero side effects: no inflammation, no infection, no swelling, no bleeding, no glaucoma or retinal problems. As I write today online, I can read the computer screen better than with my glasses. At my followup visit today Dr Kent Kirk told me that everything was so successful that I could start driving again. No restrictions. I couldn't be more pleased. Dr Kent Kirk is the "Michael Jordan" of ophthalmologists. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
