Patient Review by Bob

Excellent explanation of collateral issues concerning laser surgery because when I had it they handed me some pamphlets that Dr Arrington( added ) went over and it rounded out the information. Had it not been for her explanation I may have been a little bit more negative with my own outlook and not the procedure itself.
