We believe very strongly in The Golden Rule, Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. We strive to apply this to our practice in every way possible.
You are our first priority. Our doctors don't travel constantly to different states or cities performing surgery. If our patients ever have concerns, we sleep well knowing that we are here for them. We all live and work in close proximity to our practices. We have family here and children in local schools. We will be here for many, many years to come. There have been several LASIK centers that moved to this area and soon after left Sacramento and patients they had treated behind. The Sacramento Business Journal did a story on one of them here. Unfortunately, there will be more to do the same in the future. You will never have that concern or worry with our practice.
We realize that when looking into laser vision correction, it can be very confusing due to all of the hype and misinformation that exists. Unfortunately this has happened due to competition combined with some people being more focused on profit than what is truly best for the patient. We decided to do something about this and set a new standard with our 20/20 vision from your LASIK surgery or your money back program. Our goal isn't to see how many surgeries we can perform; therefore, we don't focus on those numbers since it isn't our priority. Trust that we will inform you of the best options for treating your eyes. One of those options may be not treating them at all should we think it would not be best for your lifestyle, or if we discover eye related concerns that may make laser vision correction not your best option.
Another way we are different is that your free evaluation is with the surgeon of your choice. Some centers offer a free evaluation but it will most likely be with a technician. Most of the time, you don't meet the surgeon until minutes before your actual surgery.
We use only the best possible equipment. Many make this claim but it simply isn't true. There is no better equipment than the combination of the Alcon WaveLight® EX500 and the latest Ziemer Z4 Femtosecond Laser. If there was something better, we would be using it. We firmly believe that if it isn't safe enough to use on ourselves, or our family members, then why should it be good enough for our patients? Our patients are part of our family and trust us to treat them like family. We cover equipment in great detail here.
Results are our passion. How well you see after surgery is much more important to us than seeing how many people we can run through surgery. We now offer 20/20 vision from your LASIK Surgery or your money back. We not only want to insure that you have a safe treatment by using the best possible equipment but how you well you see after surgery is what really counts. We have staff dedicated to enter post-operative data into our proprietary program that continually evaluates our statistics and programming of our Alcon WaveLight® EX500 lasers. What does this mean to you? You have the highest probability of getting the result you want with our surgeons than with anyone else. Click here to read more about our results.
