If anybody knows about bad eyes, that would me. If anybody knows about good eye doctor, that would also be me. I have had over 50 years of bad eyes and multiple surgeries, and multiple doctors. Dr. Whitson has done more for my eyes in 2 years than multiple doctors done in last 50 years. I highly recommend Dr. Whitson. Max B.

Not the best

I found that Whitson is an arrogant sort--charges high fees---runs more tests than needed---If you get poor results from a procedure, he tries to get out of and often does without correcting your problem. I do not reccommend thid doctor.

Dr. Whitson spent more time with me than any other doctor I have been to. He did not at all make me feel rushed or that he was in a hurry to move on to his next patient. He took the time to thoroughly explain my eye condition to me and he gave me all of my treatment options in a way that was easy for me to understand.

Dr Whitson is the best!

My son Sean who is 37 had Dr. Whitson perform Lasik surgery when he was 21. Sean still has 20/20 vision, and it has been such a blessing for him. Dr Whitson performed Lasik on me when I was 50. I am now 62, and I dont even have to use reading glasses! I would recommend Dr Whitson to anyone who needs Lasik or any type of eye surgery. He is in the top 1% of Ophthalmologists in the country and his results certainly demonstrate that!
