I can not say enough great things about Dr. Ryan. I had faith in his training from the get-go as I knew the reputation of the doctor under whom he'd completed his fellowship and knew that Dr. Ryan had received training from about the best LASIK surgeon in the country. His office got me in right away and when I wanted to have LASIK the following week because I already had time scheduled off from work, he didn't bat an eye and offered to fit me in on a non-scheduled surgery day, and come in on a holiday (the day after the surgery) to check on me. Dr. Ryan and his team probably went over and walked me through the procedure and what I would expect during and after surgery more than a half dozen times between my first appointment, consult and the day of the operation. I couldn't be happier with the way I was treated and would whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Ryan to anyone looking to do LASIK.
