In 2003 I decided to have Lasik surgery and free myself from the burden of glasses and contacts. Almost 10 years later I still have 20/20 vision. Dr. Poland’s extensive training made me extremely confident in his skills and ability. The reassurance of his skills was not to be surpassed by his attentiveness and professionalism. Being a triathlete, the transition from the water to land was always a challenge with contacts. The freedom that Lasik has afforded me is worth its weight in gold. Sports and activities are no longer hindered due to the constraints of glasses and contacts. Thank you Dr. Poland for giving me the ability to enjoy the activities I love and opening up a world of possibilities to try new ones. My quality of life has been greatly improved.

Very cold, robotic staff -- doctor included. I was quite mechanically led from room to room, with very minimal discussion. Dr Poland did not explain processes well. There was hardly any mutual dialogue - even when I tried to draw him out of what seemed to be his deep blue funk. He ignored most of my questions and answered a few in short quips. But, to top it all, the prescription he wrote was inaccurate and the glasses I ordered had to be returned.
