I had an excellent LASIK experience with Dr. Scott Tunis. He is very knowledgable but tries to keep everything as casual as possible. I went in for preliminary exams and everyone was very friendly and professional. I was able to schedule my surgery a week after the first tests. The nurses explained everything, answered all my questions and walked me through every step of the process. The surgery itself took no more than 15 minutes and I felt absolutely no pain. Again, Dr. Scott talked me through the entire procedure making me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. My recovery time consisted of a few hours of napping and eye drops for 2 weeks afterwards - again all laid out for me. So far, everything is still great! more »

This place is awesome. The staff and Dr. Tunis are all very sweet and extremely knowledgeable. And a month after my LASIK I'm not just 20/20... I'm seeing consistently somewhere between 20/15 and 20/10. And it actually cost less here than any other local place I had looked into....and I found out later that Dr. Tunis is arguably one of the highest ranked laser eye surgeons in the country. If you're interested in the procedure I would DEFINITELY give them a call. more »

Dr. Tunis and his staff were absolutely amazing in walking me through the process of LASIK. This is the day after my surgery and already I feel great. They really care about making sure you're comfortable before, during, and after the surgery. So happy with all that they've done for me! more »

I had not clearly seen the front sight on a firearm in years (I am Firearms Instructor), not good. I went to Dr . Tunis for a cataract removal (right eye). Within days I see with one eye the sight clear as a bell, and I don't need glasses to read fine print. Just had the left done this morning and can't wait to get to the Range. From my point of view, he worked a miracle, on top of that he is one hell of a great guy. more »

Dr Tunis and his entire staff are some of the nicest people! They put your worries to rest, explain everything they are going to do. And tale very good care of all of his patients! And on top of all of that, he runs on time for every visit! That's unheard of for a doctor to be on time! He has a great sense of humor and I would recommend him to everyone, I already do! more »

Thank you Dr. Tunis & STAFF! I'm so very thankful to you for making my LASIK procedure so comfortable and effortless. Being the absolute most squeamish person in the world, I was amazed at how uneventful the entire procedure was. Usually even the thought of surgery initiates dizziness, yet you and your staff soothed my concerns and explained everything very well. I wasn't worried at all considering your professional experience and credibility, but the procedure was even easier than I could have imagined. I've told everyone I know about my experience and will forever refer your professional service(s). more »
