-Cheryl from OsageSeptember 2019

“I had my LASIK surgery at Wolfe. I am a designer by profession, so my eyes are very important to my livelihood. I'm not going to pretend it wasn't a very intense 15 minute procedure, but the staff and surgeon handled it professionally and skillfully. So it was about 3-4 hours of discomfort, and then I was able to see well enough to go to work if I really needed to (very bummed). I can throw my glasses and contact lenses in the trash. Is incredible. The clinic was very attentive and helpful with preliminary consultations and even checked in several times before the day of surgery. I can only assume that the negative reviews are from people who missed the various instructions from the clinic on what to do, who to talk to, how to prepare, etc. Mine was the first surgery ever done on them, it was done in the new op center so I don't know what the old facility was like but it was new and shiny and clean. I would trust these people with my eyes again if necessary.

-Andy from Des MoinesSeptember 2019

“I was only here for a LASIK evaluation, but the process went smoothly. There was a woman who talked to me about the entire process of the surgery, the billing, and what to expect. I then put the technician through a series of diagnostic tests, all quick but thorough. The nurse briefed me and then met with me again after the ophthalmologist. Overall, your service was streamlined but not impersonal, and I look forward to my LASIK surgery being performed."

-Allison from West Des Moinesjulio 2019

"Great! The staff was knowledgeable and took the time to answer any questions. Highly recommend!"
