I am sending this to show the appreciation for the care I recently received by Nicolitz Eye Consultants.
On May 31, 2012 Dr. Ernst Nicolitz, M.D. performed eye lid surgery on me.
My treatment started on May 23, 2012 when the efficient administrative staff verified all of my medical requirements were in order - including a physical and EKG. From the beginning, all of the administrative staff were very friendly, and realizing this was an "every day" work for them - it was good to be treated that way. Also on that day I received many examinations from very proficient technicians. One thing that impressed me is that there was not very much "down or wait" time between examinations. At the end of the examinations, I met Dr. Nicolitz and his nurse Trina. They examined my eyes to see if I really needed the surgery. Both of them explained everything to me, including a diagram of what would be accomplished by having the surgery, and approximately how long it would take start to finish. Trina gave me a list of drugs to use on my eyes and eyelids prior to surgery.
Pre-Op went very smoothly. My two nurses, Kathy and Jo (who went into the O.R. with me) got me prepped very quickly..Both of them were professional in their jobs, and helped relieve some of the apprehension that is normal for a patient to have entering surgery.
Dr. Nicolitz, Trina, and Jo were among many of the staff in the O.R. The surgery went very smooth for me. I don't know if the surgery is simple surgery to them, but to me, any surgery is serious and I know Dr Nic and his staff are that way in everything they do. I had complete trust in them and that could be attributed to the relationship they formed with me during various stages leading up to the surgery. The surgery was a success and my eyes today are the proof I needed it.
Post-Op was just as smooth as pre-op. My nurses were Kathy and Jill - with Jill being the one who took me to my car. Both of these nurses were efficient, friendly and professional with great personalities. I told both of them, we needed to quit meeting this way.
On July 2nd, 2012 I returned to be examined by Dr. Nicolitz and have sutures removed by Trina.
My entire experience with the Nicolitz's Eye Consultants was a positive experience, with which I am greatly pleased and I would highly recommend their services to anyone needing any type of eye surgery.
Thank You Dr. Nicolitz, Trina, Kathy, Jo, and Jill and all associated with my case.
