One Star

Refused to hear my complaints. Was extremely rude and belittled me personally in the presence of many staff. Ran numerous diagnostic tests that had no relation to my complaints (and I assume charged Medicare for). While I am pleased to know the results of these tests and I understand the Dr. Is an excellent tectnition, I would find if inadvisable to seek help from him biased on my experience alone.

My New Eyes

Dr. Ernest did my cataract surgery & repaired astigmatism. The outcome is spectacular. The office staff is very efficient and professional as is the staff at the Surgery Center. Dr. Ernest & staff educated me fully about cataracts, the surgery procedure, the risks & the prognosis. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of what was a scary proposition before consulting TLC. Dr. Ernest is a brilliant eye surgeon, a kind, dedicated man and has many outstanding accomplishments in the Opthalmology field during his career. Thank you Dr. Ernest & all the Staff. (My followup was done by my local eye Doctor).

It has been exciting to see patients progress from an era of a hospital stay for cataract surgery and an average recovery time of six to 12 weeks to the present day procedure that is performed in an outpatient setting. Not only is there a resumption of activities within 24 hours, there is also rapid restoration of sight that is stable and long lasting. It%u2019s exhilarating to see the upcoming innovations that will lead to more desirable refractive results through cataract surgery enabling patients to achieve more useful vision without dependency on spectacles for both distance and near.%u201D
