Building rapport with your LASIK surgeon

Many experts often say that as with any relationship you have with someone in the medical profession, it has to be one of trust. There must be a personal touch, so to say. You must then feel that you trust the person and that he or she is personally interested in you. If you fail to develop that sort of chemistry but everything goes well, there is a possibility that you won’t have to see that person too often, and that’s simply the end of it. But, if you did develop that rapport and for any reason you are not satisfied with the quality of the outcome, you want to know that you have someone who is personally connected to you is working hard to address your medical needs.

“A good surgeon is someone who isn’t just running a mill where they don’t even remember who you are.” Dr. Penny Asbell, M.D., Professor of Ophthalmology of Mount Sinai School of Medicine

Having said all that, I would to close this article by saying that if you are really seriously considering LASIK or any other refractive procedures, you need first to know you doctor. Consider his or her qualifications and experience in the field of refractive surgery. Note that the surgeon is even more important than the medical devices used and no amount of technology can compensate for an inferior surgeon.
