Dr Daines did a wonderful job with my eye surgery. I look 10 years younger! Dr D always takes the time to ask what I want, explains what he recommends, and what to expect. Price-wise, I feel what I got was worth more than what I paid – very reasonable for the great job he did. I highly recommend Dr Daines for any cosmetic procedure – you will not be disappointed! – Suzanne F.
