I have only 5-star worthy things to say about Dr. Tunis and his staff. Every visit to his office was pleasant. Everyone there shared in making the experience the best one could ever hope for. Dr. Tunis made me feel comfortable and informed and I knew that should I have any issues or questions he'd be there to answer them at any time day or night. Waking up this morning and not having to reach for my glasses to see the time on the cable box was huge. I am so thankful for my "new" eyes and grateful for Dr. Tunis and his staff not only making me feel informed and comfortable every step of the way but also sharing my excitement for such a life-changing event. more »

Being legally blind, I never thought I'd be able to see and experience the world again. Thank you, Dr. Tunis (and your incredible staff) for your knowledge, skills and great bedside manner AND for giving me the gift of TRUE SIGHT. I cannot ever thank you enough. God bless you a thousand times over. I never thought SEEING like this would ever be possible for me. I thank you with all my heart. more »

I must say, I was very nervous about going in and getting Laser Eye Surgery. I have been thinking about it for years because my vision was so bad, glasses are uncomfortable, and contacts can be a pain. Luckily I was recommended to go to Dr. Tunis for my procedure. He was able to help and provided me comfort and eased my anxiety through the whole process. Dr. Tunis and his staff were an absolute pleasure to work with. I can say after only 1 day my vision is 20/20 and I feel excited about what my life will be like without the constant struggle of wearing glasses or contacts. I highly recommend this group to anyone considering LASIK. more »

I was so nervous about getting lasik. But Dr. Tunis and his staff were amazing. So professional and just a pleasure to be around. I was around 20/400 when I stepped into his office and one day later I'm seeing 20/15! Couldn't ask for anything better.
Thank you guys for all you do!

I had the most wonderful experience within Dr. Tunis and his staff! I had lasik done on both eyes. Dr. Tunis was very honest about the procedures, not once did I feel like I was being sold any service I didn't need. He and his staff are very kind, patient and informative. I felt very safe and comfortable throughout the whole process. I'm so happy with my results! more »

Dr. Tunis is truly the best that has ever looked into these eyes, he explains what he is doing and what he is looking for. His professional demeanor is easily translated into telling me what is right or wrong with my vision. He has been both my Wife’s and my Doctor for many years, it is hard to find in this day and age someone that you can easily put all your trust into.
And then there is his Staff always smiling and willing to go out of their way to make you feel relaxed. And the same Staff has been there for years, which says to me it has to be a great place to work.
To Dr. T and his Staff GREAT JOB!!!

Dr. Tunis and staff are wonderful! My husband and I both had wonderfully successful cataract surgeries by Dr. Tunis. You can't find a better staff in a Doctor's office. They are all so kind, caring and friendly, yet professional! Dr. Tunis corrected a previous surgery by another doctor for me. We always recommend Dr. Tunis to anyone needing cataract surgery. more »
