I am extremely happy with the staff at the Eye Clinic and especially my eye doctor, Nils Loewen. He performed a surgery for the cataract of my right eye. All the measurements of my eye condition were correct to the effect that now with the new replacement lens I see 20/20. I could not be more pleased.

Dr. Loewan is knowledgeable, compassionate, consoling, humorous, reassuring, kind, and considerate. He is competent and confident in the administration of his care for my eyes as well as my feelings. I am glad that I was recommended as his patient.
