I first went in to see Dr. Rizen several months ago to inquire about Lasik and PRK. After some tests he informed me that because of thin corneas and a relatively strong correction I was a better candidate for PRK, and he walked me through the procedure and what I could expect. After a few weeks out of my contacts (and in glasses) I went in for a more thorough examination and final measurements. Just a few days later Dr. Rizen performed PRK on both eyes at a laser center in Bellevue. Since the procedure I've been in for several appointments to check on the healing process and see where my vision is at. Throughout the entire process Dr. Rizen was extremely courteous, informative, and professional. He answered all of my questions and made me feel extremely comfortable in terms of what to expect throughout the procedure. The day of the operation went quickly and smoothly and he described everything that was coming in detail so that there were no surprises. The most painful part of the recovery was day 2 &
Dr. Rizen is an excellent Dr. who listens and really cares for his patients. My wife and I have been going to him for some time, and I continue to recommend him highly to all my family, friends and colleagues. Dr. Rizen is clearly very knowledgeable about the most current medical procedures. Overall, his office provides great service and a high level of personal attention to every patient.
I just had two cataracts removed by Dr. Rizen and could not have had better care. I now have 20/15 vision and am really thrilled. Dr. Rizen answers any concern and one can tell he really loves what he does. I highly recommend him.
