Amazing-Life changing Experience – Today is the afternoon following my Lasik surgery with Dr. Brian Bonanni at Gotham Lasik. I am THRILLED to say the least. My procedure took place around 6:30 p.m. last night, I was home and in bed by 7:30, and any discomfort that I felt (which was completely normal) was gone by the time I woke up this morning. I've just returned from my follow-up visit with Dr. Bonanni, and I already have 20/15 vision. I have no pain or discomfort and I can see more clearly today than I ever have in my life.
From the beginning of the process (my consultation was one week ago today) I felt entirely at ease and safe. Dr. Bonanni is clearly an expert at what he does, and he has the latest technology so I felt 100% safe. Of course, before I even entered his office I had already done a LOT of research. You MUST do your research. If you don't, you won't know what questions to ask and you'll have no idea what he is talking about anyway. My decision was easy, I had no desire to talk to any other surgeons because everything I needed to know was covered both online and in the doctor's office.
I asked Dr. B about that negative review on Yelp regarding the non-refundable deposit. He said that the person responsible for that no longer works there, and he was very upset when it happened. I did not have to put any money down for my procedure at all. The price was fair, and believe me, Dr. Bonanni has gone out of his way to make this as affordable and manageable as possible for me. I could make a list of the accommodations he has made for me, but I won't because I think that he works with patients based on their income level, insurance etc...and not everyone will have the same price in the end.
I wish there were more than five stars to give this doctor, his staff and this whole experience. His technicians are fantastic, sincerely interested in each patient and just make the whole process very enjoyable. Dr. Bonanni is hilarious too; I love his sense of humor (especially when I asked ridiculous questions!). To say that I highly recommend Gotham Lasik is a gross understatement. If you want this procedure done, look no further. You MUST go to Gotham!
