What Do Patients Say About Their Experiences With Joffe MediCenter?
"The no pressure sales approach and the flat rate pricing was what attracted me. I was offended by the "bait and switch" at another provider. The entire process was professional and pleasing. The staff was very good about letting me know what was about to occur and did a good job of explaining the after surgery care."
"All the staff is as good as you get, all very nice and professional. I felt very relaxed and comfortable from the moment I walked in to the time I left after my LASIK procedure was done. My follow up visits were just as great. I wore contacts for many years and don't miss them one bit. Joffe is the best in the business, so if you're considering the LASIK eye procedure, Joffe's the one to see and the cost is the best part. I saved almost half of what my wife paid a year ago at another LASIK place. Thanks!"
"I am extremely happy with the results of my LASIK treatment from Joffe. The staff is very friendly and available to answer any questions and address any concerns. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Thank you." Jenn H.
"I was very happy with my LASIK procedure and the results. Also, the Joffe staff made the entire experience, from my initial exam through my follow ups, very pleasant. I'd recommend (and have recommended) Joffe to others anytime." Pat P.
