Praise from Patients of Mark Mandel, MD

Dr. Rodan

“One of the best things I have ever done for myself is having LASIK eye surgery with Mark Mandel, M.D. I have a very busy schedule and lifestyle, and having this surgery has made everything I do easier, clearer and less complicated. From reading, to skiing, to traveling, to developing new products, and most importantly to treating my patients, I couldn’t be happier with the results of my Lasik surgery.

“I constantly recommend him as the “best there is” to my patients, friends and family… and everyone is thrilled with their results! For me, Mark Mandel, MD, is the only choice for laser vision correction.”
—Katie Rodan, MD, Founding Dermatologist, Proactiv

Dr. Fields

“I have had poor vision since I was 8 years old. I converted easily to contacts at 13 and wore them until age 45. Then I struggled with dry eyes and bad vision triggered by menopause. I couldn’t see with glasses or contacts. I was depressed. I had one option for my complicated condition-LASIK by the best LASIK surgeon. These are my eyes. I wasn’t taking any chances. All referrals led to Mark Mandel, MD.

“I think of him every day since the procedure. I can see the clock at the bedside, read the tiniest print and drive on a rainy road at night with confidence. Mark Mandel, MD, absolutely changed my life. I have sent over a dozen patients to him who are equally happy. He is the doctor for your precious eyes.” —Kathy Fields, MD, Founding Dermatologist, Proactiv

“Recently, I had cataract surgery…a painless, brilliant procedure that left me with razor sharp vision. Of course, I thank my surgeon, Dr. Mark Mandel. And, I should mention, this is the third time I am thanking him!

Years ago, for my 50th birthday, I decided to give myself the gift of LASIK. I had worn contacts since I was 16 years old. However, over the years, I found myself wearing contacts and needing reading glasses as well. I consulted with Dr. Mark Mandel. I had long known of Mark’s impeccable reputation since we lived in the same community at one time. LASIK is quite simply a wonderful thing…in the right surgeon’s hands. And Mark is indeed that surgeon. He pays keen attention to every detail, every test, every bit of your medical history. Six years later my eyes changed a little and I had a minor LASIK adjustment – again, quick, easy and painless with a great result.

One more thing about Mark, he leads a loyal, warm and informed office staff. Many staff associates have been with him for over 25 years, others at least a dozen years. That speaks volumes about his respected ability as a top surgeon as well as being a great guy.”
