Absolutely to $10. I can' think of one suggestion aimed at improving Dr Cessna's service. He is really outstanding and his staff alsso ( suspect because of his training) leave little for one to make improvements about.

Dr. Cessna was very clear on my condition and treatment. He showed me what was wrong with my eye in words I understood. Excellent care.
Aug 17, 2016
I have a myriad of eye issues,and had been referred to him for one of these issues. He examined me 3 years prior to this appt. and I had other surgery that had to be done first, as he and my other surgeon had explained. Dr. Cessna told me everything to expect, from the beginning. The surgery could help, not help, or my vision would remain the same. I had great confidence in him and as it ifs still healing I do noir know what the final outcome will be. BUT, I would have still had Dr. Cessna do my retina surgery.

I was released (yay!!!) so while I hopefully won't be back, I have recommended Dr. Cessna to anyone who needs a retina specialist. When you're relatively young and need a retina specialist, it's kind of scary. Dr. Cessna always instilled confidence.
