Ophthalmologist in the San Francisco East Bay Area
After a couple of years of fact-finding, researching, and seminars, I eventually chose Dr. Lerner for my LASIK procedure. The final choice came when speaking with one of Dr. Lerner's staff members, who used to work at a LASIK "mill". She says that they used to average 2 to 3 complications per day, where in 2-1/2 years with Dr. Lerner she has not yet had one! My eyes are the only set I've got, and that last part was the decision-maker for me. While I may have been able to shave a few dollars off at some LASIK mill, I like the fact that both of the Pre-0p appointments, all of the Post-Op appointments, and the LASIK procedure itself are all performed by Dr. Lerner himself. And after going from 20-400 vision before the operation to 20-20 vision ONLY 24 HOURS LATER, I couldn't be happier. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Lerner to anyone who, like me, is sick and tired of contact lenses and glasses. And their staff is the best! Thank you, Dr. Lerner & staff, for freeing me from glasses & contact lenses forever!
After much research and evaluation I chose the Lerner Eye Center to perform my LASIK procedure. My decision was based on Dr. Lerner's caring demeanor and great reputation. He made me feel very comfortable by answering all my questions and concerns. Dr. Lerner's office puts the patient first. The staff was very knowledgable and helpful before, during, and after my procedure. I am so glad I had LASIK. It is so nice not having to worry about glasses or contacts anymore.
The LASIK procedure was something that I often thought about, but was too nervous to go through with. Being in the medical profession I know that it's very important to choose the right physician who has excellent skills, as well as being personable and caring. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to join the staff at the Lerner Eye Center as the Laser Vision Coordinator. Part of my job description was to observe Dr. Lerner while he performed the LASIK procedure. After only one month of observing Dr. Lerner's excellent skills and seeing how caring and personable he is with each patient, I knew I had the right physician for my own care. Dr. Lerner has performed my procedure and I have a wonderful result. I can finally say goodbye to the inconvenience of contacts and glasses and it feels great.
I am a physically active guitar teacher. LASIK has been incredible for me. I see better now, without glasses or contacts, than I did before, with them. I wore glasses constantly since grade school. Now I ski, swim, and work on the computer, all with complete freedom. Dr. Lerner isn't only the best, he's also my Dad.
