Key-Whitman Patients, Peers and Employees: Thanks for the Love!

Posted By Key-Whitman Eye Center || 1-Dec-2016

As 2016 comes to a close, we want to say a big “We Love You, Too!” to Key-Whitman Eye Center’s loyal patients, peers and employees. While patients often tell us they appreciate us when visiting our Dallas area offices, we are ever-so-grateful when people in our community give us unsolicited high-fives in local polls and surveys.

For example, Dallas area doctors have chosen Key-Whitman President and Chief Surgeon Jeffrey Whitman, M.D., as one of D Magazine's "Best Doctors"for 15 years running. Dr. Whitman always appreciates his patients' kind words and votes of support.

Dr. Whitman wasn’t the only Key-Whitman eye doctor voted for in the 2016 D “Best Doctors” poll. As in past surveys, Kimberly S. Warren, M.D., who specializes in cataracts, vision correction surgery and glaucoma management and Faisal Haq, M.D., who specializes in cataracts, vision correction surgery, corneal disease and glaucoma management were listed in Collin County’s “Best Doctors” poll in D Magazine.

Tarrant County doctors also gave kudos to our doctors. Key-Whitman Arlington’s Amy Hong, M.D., who specializes in cataracts, vision correction surgery and glaucoma management, along with Ronald Barke, M.D., who specializes in cataracts and refractive surgery, were recognized in Fort Worth Magazine’s “Top Docs” list.

From time to time, we’ll ask patients to share their experiences with us “on the record” – or in a video interview. So we recently asked Candace Payne, better known as Chewbacca Mom, for feedback on her interaction with the Key-Whitman team before, during and after her LASIK surgery.

Candace Payne shares how the Key-Whitman staff thoughtfully explained what she could expect during her LASIK procedure and how that made her feel.

Our amazing patients also shared their support for Key-Whitman staff and services in a number of local publications. Thank you for continuing to show your support in these recent surveys:

  • Readers’ Choice Award 2016, Best LASIK, Addison Magazine
  • Readers’ Choice Award 2016, Best LASIK, Plano/Frisco Living Magazine
  • Readers’ Choice Award 2016, Best Ophthalmology, Arlington/Mansfield Magazine

We recently caught up with Implantable Collamer® Lens (ICL) patient Tommy Hardeman about his vision and ongoing relationship with Key-Whitman staff. Hardeman was fed up with glasses and contacts and is still pleased with how his ICL procedure has simplified his life in the past seven years.

Key-Whitman patient Tommy Hardeman explains how Key-Whitman staff put him at ease.

Thank you for sharing your feedback online, too

We also appreciate the feedback our patients share on our website and the Key-Whitman Facebook page, especially when their sentiments reflect our mantra, “Key-Whitman Changes Lives.”

Case in point: One of our favorite Facebook reviews comes from Sandra C., who said, “I feel like the Bionic Woman after cataract surgery and a multifocal lens implant this past Monday.” You made our day, Sandra!

Patients regularly tell us they are happy with their results and will refer friends and family to Key-Whitman. “Having LASIK at Key-Whitman is the best thing I ever did for myself! My eyesight was ‘off the charts’ and Dr. Whitman gave me 20/20 vision in just a few minutes. I wouldn't even consider going anywhere else or sending anyone in my family anywhere else,” said a Key-Whitman patient in a testimonial on our website.

We also hear from many adult children of cataract patients who appreciate the care our staff takes with their parents. “My father had both eyes done as he had cataracts. Everyone in the office was exceptional. Very caring and understanding,” said Tiara W. on Facebook.

Other reviewers on Facebook shared the following sentiments:

According to Renee C., “The doctors and staff and Key-Whitman are wonderful. I had cataract surgery and now can see things I haven't seen in years. They opened my world up again!”

Kari P. says she can’t rave enough, “Professional staff, courteous and phenomenal results. I never felt pressured, and I was comfortable throughout the entire process. I would do the surgery over again in a heartbeat with Key-Whitman if I ever needed to, painless, outstanding results! My eyes are almost on their year anniversary (had surgery for my Christmas present to myself!)”

Diane D. was blown away by “the skill of Dr. Whitman and the skill and warmth of the entire staff! I never knew what I could not see! This is impacting every aspect of my life. THANK YOU!”

Cynthia G. says, “I have had nothing but excellent service and experience at Key-Whitman! I would recommend again and again!
