TA: Everything was great. I really liked the extended office hours which enables me to make my office visits as scheduled because my work schedule changes weekly. I would highly recommend LASIK, and I have!

DM: I liked the personal attention you give each person. I was pleased that I could see the next day and how clear my vision was, and the surgery was so painless. I would recommend Dr. Weingarten to anyone who was thinking of LASIK eye surgery in Detroit.

EA: The staff is great, they remember you by name. The experience will completely change your life and there is not one moment of regret.

GG: Everyone is very professional, friendly and makes you feel comfortable. I would tell people that the procedure is explained thoroughly and all questions are answered. Before, during and after the procedure the staff and doctor make you comfortable and explain everything that is happening. No need to be nervous.

DB: The experience is painless and simple. The recovery is short and you can see pretty clearly in a couple days. If you have been wearing glasses as long as I have, it is truly a great experience not to have to rely on glasses or contacts to see in most cases.

JT: I like the information I had gotten from the LASIK seminar, meeting the doctor and the fact that he had it done himself. No hassle or pressure. He just presented it and the rest is up to you. First I would refer them to one of the LASIK seminars. After hearing all the facts and meeting Dr. Weingarten they will already have made the decision. Also, that I would do it again in a minute.

DV: I feel special when I call to make an appointment and then when I get to the office I am greeted almost immediately with a friendly smile. I have told many people about my wonderful experience. It is a new lease on life for me. My whole experience was perfect. My eyesight is even better than I imagined. For me, my ability to drive at night improved. I was afraid to drive at night prior to my surgery.

JA: I felt follow up visits were thorough. Overall, it was a very positive experience. The doctor uses the latest, updated equipment. Everyone is very accommodating.

BM: Keep up the great work! I’d refer patients to you.

CN: I find it difficult to believe, but your staff knows me by name! The best thing I ever did for myself! I did not want to go to an assembly line surgery service. I wanted a doctor who would see me through the entire process and one who knows my eyes. The personalized service is great.

MH: Very professional staff. Dr. Weingarten was there at all times for questions or any concerns, even on weekends. You decided when you wanted the procedure, no pressure.

CP: Everyone has always been very friendly and helpful. The surgical staff made every effort to put me at ease before, during and after the procedure. I also appreciate that I have never spent more than a few minutes in the waiting room for any of my visits. I have been telling people that the procedure is completed very quickly and in my case painlessly. Recovery was also very quick, even quicker than I was lead to believe. Even though I wore corrective lenses for 34 years, it’s now as though I never needed them. I can’t wait to go snorkeling and not have to worry about contacts.

Everyone was very helpful at the office, too, and really went out of their way to take care of me.

TF: I liked that the surgery was late in the day. It makes it easier to not use your eyes until the next day.

MM: Everyone was absolutely wonderful; Patti was always cheerful and very helpful, Dr. W. was very patient, thorough and kind. I have done a lot of research on LASIK and was convinced to do the surgery after meeting Dr. W and Patti. I love my new vision and being able to read by alarm clock in the middle of the night.

NH: This was some of the best money I’ve spent! Everyone was very helpful. The whole staff couldn’t be nicer. Dr. Weingarten and his staff answered all of my questions and made me feel confident and at ease. The whole experience was comfortable. I wish I had done it sooner. I’m looking forward to my pool and outdoor activities this summer.
