Summary: Dr. Schwartz
January 6th, 2016
As a patient of Dr. Schwartz, I must say my experience could not have been any better. He is very thorough. The decision for me to get Lasik surgery at Associated Eye Care was one the best decisions I ever made. Dr. Schwartz, and the entire staff made me feel at ease, and confident I was in good hands. My experience was so positive, my son also chose Dr. Schwartz to perform his Lasik surgery! Thank you for all you do!
