“I was nervous about getting Lasik for years. I was referred to this office and it was literally the best decision I’ve made. The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Usually when you go to appointment to see doctors, your wait times are extremely long. This was not the case at this office. I waited no more than five minutes for every appointment that I had. The day of my procedure was nervous one. But thanks to the staff, I was in and out of my procedure in no time. I’m happy to say after over 10 years of wearing glasses, I am now glasses free and my vision is better than ever. If you are thinking about getting Lasik, I would seriously consider going to Advanced eye center in Gainesville. You won’t reget it.” –Brian Neal
