Got my LASIK surgery here with Dr. Pinkus, it went well and I’m satisfied with the results. It feels nice being able to get rid of my prescription glasses.

Todo el proceso es muy profesional, desde que entras hasta que te vas. En mi experiencia, de los pocos lugares en Tijuana que cuidan hasta el más mínimo detalle en cuanto a tus revisiones, y sobre todo la paciencia y amabilidad con el que tratan a personas mayores. Mi papá y mi tío están muy contentos, ellos vienen de Hermosillo y prefieren venir acá.read more
