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.

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.

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!
