Dr. Mandel performed PRK surgery on me in November. It was painless! And the best experience of my life!! 100% worth the money. I would pay 100 times over. I would recommend anyone to do the surgery with Dr. Mandel. he performed Lasik on my mother about 11 years ago and she still is amazed by the results! Dr. Mandel's office is comforting and friendly. You are really being taken care of and feel like you are home. Thank you Dr. mandel for being an amazing doctor!
Had Lasik surgery done yesterday and have to say that it was the best decision I've made (besides my husband and children of course). I went to TLC Lasik and they profiled me after one test and told me I wasn't eligible. One of the first questions they asked me was how much I wanted to spend. I told them $3,000 would be nice and that I was looking to finance. One test later, and not very nicely was told that I'm not a candidate. Mandel Vision ran countless test to see if I was eligible and also told me my options. Made me feel like I was part of the family. Now I'm reading with no glasses. Something I haven't been able to do for years. Needless to say, Mandel is way more expensive but I would have spent double with no problem. Thank you for saving my livelihood.
Dr. Mandel performed PRK surgery on me in May of 2013. It is now three months later and I'm thrilled with the results. I was nervous to get PRK since I was not a candidate for Lasik but it was well worth it. I have perfect vision and wish I had done this sooner! Dr Mandel and his entire team came highly recommended and they lived up to their reputation. The entire experience was positive and easy from start to finish!
In May of 2012 I had Lasik performed by dr. Mandel. Before the procedure I was very scarred but dr. Mandel and the rest of Mandel Vision personnel were so kind and encouraging that my fear was soon gone. With dr. Mandel I felt I was in the best hands. He is one of the rare doctors who gained my complete trust. I can not describe a pleasure that came with a clear sight without glasses and contacts as I hated the both. No more blurry vision when I wake up in the morning and finally it is easier to wake up. No more hassle with contacts on the airplanes. I can swim and dive without anxious feeling that I might lose my contacts. I know people who had Lasik performed by some other doctors. However, it happened that they had to go back for corrections. Dr. Mandel got it all done within 10 minutes. Thank you dr. Mandel for making my life much easier because finally I can see!
Had lasik with Dr. Mandel last week, and I am now seeing 20/20. I've been waiting to do this for 15 years, but was too afraid. Dr. Mandel spent a lot of time helping me figure out the best option for me. I am neurotic, and his sense of humer has definitely helped calm my nerves, as my eyes continue to adjust to monovision. He is a great surgeon, and I would recommend him to anybody.
Absolutely amazing! I was very nervous about getting the procedure done but the friendly and informative staff (especially missy who was my coordinator) and the personal time and attention from dr mandel made me feel very comfortable with going through with the procedure. The procedure was very quick with minimal discomfort. Dr mandel led me through everything that was happening and before I knew it was done. I had the procedure yesterday and see very close to perfect today (vision gets better by the hour!!). This man is a genius!! I highly highly recommend dr mandel and his practice.

A couple months ago my retina surgeon referred me to Dr Mandel. I went into Mandel Vision for a consultation and have been grateful for the recommendation ever since. Dr Mandel and his team always take great care of me. They see me right on time, answer all my questions, and explain everything they do, including narrating my surgery – which helped me a lot! (Plus, as another reviewer noted, Dr Mandel has a great sense of humor!)
They've also been accurate in predicting each step of my recovery from PRK (Dr Mandel's Lasik alternative). While a full recovery may take me another month or two, at ten days post-PRK I'm already seeing better than I did with contacts. I can't wait to see how good my vision gets, and they're just as excited as I am. And that's another thing I like about them: Dr Mandel, the technicians (thanks Nancy and Missy), and nurses (thanks Kim and Crystal), all really care. Dr Mandel told me he loves curing people, helping people see. Thanks, Dr Mandel, you've done that, for sure, for me!
Be afraid. – Be afraid, be very afraid. Dr. Mandel is an excellent surgeon, but he is more businessman than doctor. Dr. Mandel blatantly misrepresented the outcome of my surgery to sell his services. After a very disappointing outcome from my surgery, I went to see a different doctor and was told that I was not the "perfect candidate" Dr. Mandel claimed I was.
The office is very nice, including the massage chairs, but it's all part of the sales pitch. The office is a factory -- don't expect Dr. Mandel to spend much time really getting to know your individual situation. Do yourself a favor and find a doctor that's focused on providing quality care and not a doctor that's focused on building a marketing machine to make as much money as possible off anyone he can.
Why didn't I do this sooner? – I cannot recommend Dr. Mandel and his staff highly enough. Their high level of professionalism, expertise, and experience are obvious and make the entire experience very comfortable and stress free. After a very thorough evaluation process, Dr. Mandel explained in very clear detail what my options were, his recommendations, and all the pros and cons. I decided to have the PRK procedure and Dr. Mandel walked me through it every step of the way (which was much quicker than you would expect). He was spot on with detailing how my healing process would proceed and everything went according to plan. I could not be happier with the results. In fact, my wife decided to have Dr. Mandel correct her vision after seeing my results!
Thank you for giving me and my wife perfect eyesight.
I would strongly recommend Dr. Mandel to anyone considering laser surgery.
