This was dream experience! Got in minutes ahead of appointment time. Eye exam staff was extremely caring and made me very much at ease, with humor and task efficiency. Dr. Sage is very warm and welcoming, and exudes an air of confidence and grace in his work. I quickly knew my diagnosis and everything was explained to me by Dr. Sage in a clear and articulate manner. Everyone in this office, including the billing/insurance person treated me with respect and consideration. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sage and his staff to anyone needing the very best of care for their precious eyes! BRAVO!
I’m an avid reader, but I was unable to read for long periods of time, due to headaches/tension caused by droopy eyelids. I was referred to Dr. Sage by my sister Angie. I’m so happy I did my eyelid surgery. My experience was great. I can read and I look much younger…
Dr. Sage was knowledgeable and explained the procedure well, very easy to talk to. The staff was friendly and professional. I referred Dr. Sage to another relative who had to have several eye procedures, she is also very satisfied with her outcome. Thank you Dr. Sage and Staff.
I had laser surgery for cataract removal and vision correction on my left eye this morning. I’m, of course, wearing the protective transparent “shield” which distorts a bit, so I don’t yet know if I’ll be able to read a newspaper at 100 yards like I did 15 years ago (OK, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, maybe it was only 50 yards) but I am DELIGHTED and totally impressed with the helpfulness and professionalism from the Doctor and all the staff.
I’m probably not unique in being a bit “nervous” about having someone slice my eye open and put a foreign object in it and everyone was really great about telling me what they were doing and why at every step of the way (“These drops are to numb the eye” or “These antibiotic drops my sting a bit”, etc., etc.) which serves to alleviate anxiety greatly.
I am REALLY impressed!
I cannot thank you and your expert staff of co-workers for making my cataract surgery such a wonderful experience. I really expected to feel some pain, discomfort or dizziness at some point during the procedure. To the contrary, I was absorbed by the professional care, preparation and treatment given to me–from my entrance to my exit. Their knowledge and skill are of utmost importance; yet their sensitivity and understanding kept me relaxed and focused. The whole atmosphere, including the other patients, was warm and receptive. When we met at 1600 the next day, it was like a celebration with old friends. We were all ecstatic and overjoyed!
I inadvertently left the envelop (the questionnaire and photo) that was given to me when I left the office, in the sun visor of my driver’s car. I decided that evening, October 25, that to just say “thanks” is not enough. A note of thanks is more appropriate, all things, considered. I am looking forward to seeing you again on Thursday, November 8.
God bless you and yours, one and all… keep up the good work!
Sincerely, Barbara King
Much of this I think I’ve mentioned before, but I wanted to put all of it together:
I’m not generally a great fan of allopathic medicine and feel I should take responsibility for my own health which I do with Scientology (Handles psychosomatic ills and other stuff), exercise and nutrition. This has been working our pretty well for me in that at 74 years of age I’m a viable competitor in sport karate tournaments (In one regional ranking system I’m currently ranked #1 among Black Belts over 40 – which means I’m a generation older than virtually all of the competition. This for the fifth time out of the last six years) and I’ve only missed two days of work or school because of illness since 1952 (Doesn’t count things like missing some work when I broke my leg skydiving), BUT when my optometrist, having told me for years I was developing cataracts, said I was not going to pass my next DMV eye test and a ten minute laser surgery would have me walking out of the office with good vision it was apparent I need to modify my attitude.
The DMV requires 20-40 on their eye test and having now had laser surgery and corrective lenses implanted on both eyes, my left eye went from 20-80 to 20-30 (and I understand it may improve as the healing process continues) and my right eye from 20-100 to 20-20!! I am blown away and totally impressed with your staff, the laser corrective procedure, your skill and YOU!!!
With my insurance, the “knife” cataract removal without corrective lens implant (so you get rid of the cataract but still need glasses) is covered, but the laser surgery with corrective implant (which I’m told should be good for about 40 years) was an extra $3000.00 per eye. If you have anyone considering the cheaper route, please show them this letter. This is life changing! If you don’t have the money, get a loan or sell your car! Before, to read a book, I needed a bright desk lamp and glasses and if there were small footnotes, I needed a magnifying glass! I haven’t needed my glasses for anything since the first surgery! Not even the ingredients lists on food.
