The surgery center was in their former building and immaculate. The staff was very welcoming. I was impressed the everything anyone touched was wiped down and cleaned from the blood pressure cuff to the arms on chairs and entire wheel chair that delivers people to their cars after surgery. Dr. Loden performed a good cataract surgery and my follow-up was with Dr. Evans, who was also very professional and answered questions I had.

I highly recommend Loden Vision Centers, especially in Goodlettsville and am thankful the Loden Vision Center is here locally!

Beautiful building, professional and friendly staff and with the move to their new building on Two Mile Parkway, the is now a convenient place to purchase glasses, if needed, in the lobby of their building.

Summary: Best Lasik experience ever!
June 1st, 2017
My lasik procedure was 5/11/2017 and it was a truly awesome experience! Every staff member, every step of the way was fantastic and so nice. They made sure you felt comfortable and in the end I am seeing 20/20! I have been dependent on glasses since the 2nd grade. I couldn't see a thing without my glasses on. I was a -9.00 before Lasik and I am forever grateful to Dr. Loden for changing my life. I would highly recommend Dr. Loden and his staff to anyone and everyone!
