Ratings for Dr. John A Long
My eyelids had gotten so bad I was unable to see any more without holding my eyebrows up to get my eyelids out of my line of sight. I was very hesitant about having any kind of plastic surgery performed and had put it off for more years than I should have. Dr. Long did a blepharoplasty on both eyes on March 1, 2019 and they look great! I can see now and I am beyond thankful for that! His staff was courteous and very helpful with appointments and scheduling surgery. They took care of it all and I didn't have to do anything. Dr. Long was great about answering any of my questions. He LISTENED to me and my wants and don't wants. He was very kind with a wonderful beside manner. I don't really care about a doctor's bedside manner as long as the results are good, but it was a plus that Dr. Long did have a good bed side manner. Dr. Long did a wonderful job on both my eyes. I could not possibly be any happier with the results. It wasn't too much or not enough....it was just right, which was a huge concern of mine. I cannot recommend him enough.
I've never been as pleased with a doctor or any previous surgeries as I am with Dr. Long and his work. He performed surgery hon both of my upper eyelids. My eyelids were drooping so much I literlally had a small slit left in both eyes. I looked older, tired and unhealthy. He also told me I had Ptosis. He did an outstanding job. Dr. Long was very patient with my questions and concerns. I've been told I look great. He and his entire staff have been excellent. He is the best! ! !
I want to comment on “fake rating” that immediately follows this post. I have had cosmetic surgery with Dr Long and he was kind compassionate and attentive. It is a shame that depressed and mentally ill people are able to leave anonymous posts disparaging good people/doctors like Dr Long. That anonymous post seem “fake” and no doubt was posted by a depressed and mentally ill sad person.
I am just now writing a review about Dr. Long as a result of searching for a good doctor. I realized how much I was depending on "real" reviews. In 2013 I was looking for a doctor to correct eyelid retraction caused by another doctor's aggressive laser resurfacing procedure. I had emailed, to Dr. Long's office, my medical information along with pictures of my eyes both before and after the laser mishap. Upon my visit with the doctor he entered the examining room assisted by a training intern. I extended my hand to introduce myself and he totally ignored me. He preceeded to pick up my file when I explained to him I had emailed pictures beforehand and had actually requested a telecom with him prior to making the two-hour drive to see if he could help me. He then turned to me and said: "I don't do that. And, I certainly wouldn't do it for someone like you." I'm sure some reading this, will find this hard to believe. But, as God is my witness, this is the truth. Trust me, I'm ashamed to have let someone abuse and embarrass me. I couldn't believe a living soul could be as arrogant, cruel and insensitive. I was so taken aback, instead of telling him he had no right to talk to me that way and running as fast as my feet would carry me, I sat there stunned and watched him walk out of the office without saying a word. If only I could relive this ONE day. Not only is he not professional, he is rude and uncaring.
In January of this year, 2018, Dr. John A. Long performed eyelid surgery on both of my eyes. I could not be more pleased with Dr. Long, the experience, and the results. Before the surgery, my eyelids were so heavy that my vision was impaired to the degree that I was looking through my eyelashes, had difficulty reading, and could not perform well enough in eye exams to get an accurate prescription for my glasses. On my first appointment with Dr. Long, he listened to my frustration and my description of the difficulties I was experiencing, performed a thorough examination, explained options and recommendations to correct the problem, and prepared me for what to expect with the surgery and the healing process. After surgery, he followed up with me immediately at the hospital and at home the following day. Following surgery, I had minimum bruising, minimal discomfort for a couple of days, healed quickly, and the results have been dramatic. My countenance is brighter, my peripheral sight and visual clarity is greatly improved. I am able to enjoy reading again for the first time in many years. Choosing to work with Dr. Long was the best decision I could have made. I would highly recommend him to friends. And, I already have!
I went to Dr Long after my previous eyelid surgery was a nightmare.. On my first visit Dr Long assured me that he could repair my droopy eyelid. I made a appointment for the revision and he repaired my eyelid without any problem. Looks great! I wish I had chose Dr Long to do the first surgery. He's a super nice guy and I would highly recommend him.
Extremely pleased with Dr. John Long, professional and rotatable. Eyelid surgery made so much difference in my life. Dr. Long was attentive, answered all my questions and explained all the details of the surgery and made me very relaxed and comfortable. I experienced very little discomfort and needed no pain medications afterwards. Extremely well pleased, guarantee you won't be disappointed. C. Magruder
