EXPERIENCES OF DOCTORS AS PATIENTS
“I am an ophthalmologist and carefully studied the procedure and various surgeons before selecting John Goosey for my LASIK procedure. I had been wearing glasses since age 14 and was quite near-sighted prior to having the LASIK procedure. The procedure was very successful, painless and I had a very fast recovery. LASIK has dramatically improved my lifestyle and I am very pleased. I am now able to shave, play sports and even operate without correction. Dr. John Goosey is focused on direct patient care and I have no reservation about sending him patients for the same procedure. The best thing of all is now I have done away with the nuisance of glasses and contact lenses.”
“Going into my LASIK surgery, I had the goal of functional vision without glasses or contact lenses. I never could have dreamed that my vision was going to be as good as it is now. I can actually see better than 20/20 on the eye chart now, and glasses and contact lenses are just a foggy memory. As an eye care practitioner, I feel that experiencing LASIK for myself, has been beneficial in allowing me to counsel and educate patients who are thinking about the surgery. I put my trust in Dr. Goosey and his surgical expertise. I can wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who is considering laser vision correction.”
“I want to let you know how happy I am with my LASIK surgery. After having completed my fellowship under your supervision, I have nothing but admiration for your professionalism and complete confidence in your surgical technique. I am so grateful to have had the procedure done on myself; and, I have quickly become accustomed to the “hassle-free” lifestyle. Having recently moved to Hawaii to start my own career as a refractive surgeon, I feel it is a privilege to be able to offer a procedure to my patients that I trust enough for my own eyes. I am reminded on a daily basis, both in work and leisure, how much having LASIK surgery has simplified my life and blessed me with near perfect vision.”
P.S. I am still 20/15 O.U.
P.S. I am going to take up windsurfing for the first time in my life.
“I just wanted to write you a letter to thank you for your help in performing my LASIK back over last Labor Day. As an ophthalmologist who performs LASIK himself, it has been an unbelievable experience to actually know from the other side what a change we can make for people by perfecting their vision. As you are well aware, I was terribly near-sighted and could not even walk from the bed to the bathroom without the aid of my spectacles or contact lenses. I cannot begin to tell you all of the things that I can now do that I was unable to do without the surgery, but maybe it would help your patients to know a couple of simple things. Probably the most enjoyable thing I have done in about the last four or five years, is finally to go to the sunglasses counter and buy a pair of “Oakley’s” over the counter, just like everybody else does and wear them without any other correction at all. Just as exciting, was my ski trip this year. As you are well aware, when you wear glasses to ski, your glasses fog up and you do not see well. When you wear your contacts to avoid that, they dry out and it is uncomfortable. This year, with our 10-15 days of skiing, I wore my regular sunglasses when it was sunny and when it was partly cloudy or cloudy, wore nothing at all. I experienced no problems with my vision, no dryness, no discomfort and no light sensitivity at all. There are too many examples to start listing them all, but I can tell you for sure, it has not only made my normal life better, but it has made me more understanding as a surgeon and made me more able to serve my patients well. If any of your patients have any desire to speak to me regarding the procedure, or anything about it, I would be happy to talk with them anytime. I, obviously, recommend it without any reservation. Thanks again.”
“Dr. Goosey is my personal ophthalmologist and the one I recommend to my patients with a great deal of confidence. His LASIK surgery on my right eye resulted in 20/15 distance vision; my improved vision has enhanced my professional abilities. I can see the facial expressions of my patients much more clearly now. It has also significantly improved my quality of life in many other areas. Dr. Goosey’s care, concern and capacity to communicate complement his surgical skill.”
“As a specialist in Gastroenterology, I make my living with my eyesight. In the medical profession, I am in a position to know who is truly good and who is just hype, in ophthalmic surgery. When I chose to have corrective refractive surgery the choice was clear. I recommend Dr. John D. Goosey to all my patients and colleagues who inquire about the LASIK procedure. The results speak for themselves. Dr. Goosey is the choice of other physicians.”
