She was very thorough and thoughtful. She called my home after my procedure (7:00 p.m.) to see how I was doing. I did well.

I had a rocky start with VEI staff period in trying to get some prescription problems straightened out months ago, but I never received a survey at that time. Since that rough start, I have been very impressed with Dr. Sobel and her endeavors to get to the bottom of a problem with infected tear ducts.

hard to judge some of this considering we did not go through with the procedures but things were explained well just not something I felt good about doing after hearing the possibilities of what my eye lid could look like. Thank goodness it healed on its own.
