Summary: Cataract Surgery
March 20th, 2018
My cataract surgery on right eye was done by Dr. Donald Poland, but wasn't available at the time I was ready to get left eye cataract surgery. Therefore, Dr. Kris Gillian, in practice with Dr. Poland, did the left eye cataract surgery. He did an amazing job and I once again didn't really feel that I had surgery. I would recommend him to anyone. He is so friendly and puts you at ease immediately. Please see Dr. Poland's review I did today because all the comments about Beth, office staff, and wonderful nurses at Gwinnett Medical Center would be exactly the same. My post op visit yesterday shows my vision is great, thanks to these doctors.

Summary: Cataract Surgery
March 1st, 2018
Dr. Kris Gillian was professional, efficient, personable and informative with me for the multifocal lens implants using Lasik surgery. It started with pre-surgery consultation in the office and I was provided with easy to understand options for cataract surgery and pricing, as well as the medication regiment. One eye was operated on at Northside Hospital in a specialty unit with the second eye surgery two weeks later. The Northside Hospital personnel were professional and efficient as Dr. Gillian. The surgery was about 30 minutes each and recovery was painless without any discomfort. I highly recommend Dr. Gillian for cataract surgery as well as the multifocal lens. It is now three weeks since the second implant and I have been able to read and see afar without any discomfort – NO MORE EYE GLASSES!
