stars“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for you skill, expertise, and personal interaction on my recent cataract surgeries. The operations resulted in nearly perfect eyesight, which is a tribute to your sill and expertise. In addition, your recommendation to have my retinas examined and repaired gave me confidence in the overall cataract process. Moreover, your personal interaction on all my visits to the Eye Center greatly reduced my anxiety of eye surgery. i was particularly impressed with your post-surgery follow-up phone calls to inquire as to my condition. Akin to the long forgotten “house call,” they were unexpected, but exceedingly welcome and comforting.

So thank you again for what you have done for me. It is greatly appreciated. One might say that you perform miracles every wednesday! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”L. Lijewski

I highly recommend him to all that I meet for eye surgery. “Sheri T.

stars“I am 42 years old. I have been struggling for several years with problems with one of my eyes. Struggling to the point that it has affected my career and my lifestyle. After several visits to eye surgeons, Dr. Sebastian Heersink made me feel comfortable and confident enough to have cataract surgery in my problem eye. The night after the surgery when my husband removed the covering to start the series of drops, TEARS OF JOY streamed down my face because this is the first time in YEARS that I have been able to actually see out of that eye. The day after surgery my follow up appointment results were astonishing. 20/20 eye sight in operative eye. I hugged Dr. Heersink because of him caring so much to help me with a successful surgery! I am forever thankful for his kindness. He has changed my life forever. The staff made me feel welcome and comfortable throughout the entire process. Thank you DR. SEBASTIAN HEERSINK. I have my life back!!” – Sherri H
