At Brinton Vision, every day we have the opportunity to change lives with LASIK in St. Louis. Our greatest reward comes from the smiles on our patients’ faces when they realize clear, crisp vision, often for the first time in their lives. Reading positive Facebook, Google, and Yelp reviews from our patients is definitely a close second — especially when those reviews come from other physicians whose knowledge of medicine gives them a little more insight into what we do and how we are different.
John L. is a local anesthesiologist who recently underwent laser vision correction at Brinton Vision. His Yelp review left our whole team feeling a new level of pride:
“Surgery is personal and surgeons are unique in their ability, knowledge, temperament and training. Dr Brinton is a surgeon I entrusted my vision, my life and my career to,” he said.
“It is so hard to convey the difference amongst physicians to the public. It seems like we are all the same. The opposite is true. Your life depends on your vision. All doctors are not the same. Dr Brinton is elite.”
Thank you, John! We hope your experience helps others to make the decision to lose their glasses and contacts for good, and to see the world in a whole new, better way!
Here’s John’s Yelp review in its entirety:
“I’m an anesthesiologist. I work with surgeons in high-risk and life threatening surgeries daily. All surgeons are not the same. Amongst dozens of surgeons in any specialty there would be one or two that I would allow to work on myself or my family. The general public doesn’t have the inside information on which surgeon is the best and is at a disadvantage. Most surgeries turn out well but patients don’t know the difference in how it could have been better for them because they don’t have a reference.
“I don’t do social media. I’m not on Facebook. I’m extremely private. I signed onto Yelp to tell you that Dr Brinton is different. Expect excellence. Expect a surgical experience where you are the only patient in the facility and the focus of the entire staff. Your procedure will not be rushed. Expect state of the art testing and honest discussion about all of your options. Surgery is personal and surgeons are unique in their ability, knowledge, temperament and training. Dr Brinton is a surgeon I entrusted my vision, my life and my career to.
“My glasses were damaged recently and I wasn’t able to function until I had replacement lenses. My uncorrected vision was 20/400. Legally blind is 20/200. I realized it was time to make a change so that I would never again be blind. I now have 20/12.5 vision. My results exceed my expectations. It wasn’t until after the procedure that I realized that Dr Brinton’s refined techniques minimize surgical insult to my eye and eliminated an unnecessary step. Patients of most other surgeons don’t appreciate that they will see flashes and other visual artifacts for the rest of their lives because their surgeons have a less refined technique. It is so hard to convey the difference amongst physicians to the public. It seems like we are all the same. The opposite is true. Your life depends on your vision. All doctors are not the same. Dr Brinton is elite. I’m overjoyed with my experience. I had no pain whatsoever during or after the procedure and this has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Dr Brinton thank you for your lifetime of dedication. God bless.”
