Outstanding examination and explanation of diagnosis and available procedures. Efficient and pleasant office staff. After leaving appointment, I had an additional question, after a brief wait, Dr Laquis saw me again and patiently answered my additional question. At Surgi-center, staff was extremely efficient and courteous. The medical staff answered all questions, were appropriately concerned for my comfort and prior medical and allergy issues. Every member of the staff was professional.
I had the best experience going in to see Dr. Laquis! The staff was great and so very kind. Dr. Laquis was so up beat and very professional. I was referred to him by another doctor to look at something on my eyelid. He found basil cell and removed it all so quickly it was over before I knew what happened. I'm so relieved!!! The mark is gone and my eyelid looks like there was never a thing wrong with it.. No more basil cell! Thank you Thank you Dr. Laquis and staff! What a christmas present!! I'm going back if I every need to again!!! Katherine Allman
Surgery was very quick and virtually painless. Dramatic results as my peripheral vision had been impacted. A couple of weeks of minor swelling and tightness is the extent of discomfort. I think post op instructions using ice and drops for irritation was key. 3 weeks after surgery friends raved about the difference and thought I just had pink eye shadow on! Even my husband couldn't believe the difference. The whole staff were very nice and encouraging.
