Dr. Rick :

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

ok

Dr. Rick :

Dr. Nicholas Marsico is a fellowship trained cornea specialist who is a member in excellent standing of the American Academy of Ophthalmology He is also trained in Refractive surgery so would be a good fit for you issues. He is at 420 E. Third street, Los Angles, 90013(###) ###-####/p>

Dr. Rick :

Google maps shows it to be about a*****from costa mesa, along highway 5. We both know, however, that Hwy 5 can be, at times, the worlds longest parking lot :o)

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

do you mean 213 areacode ?

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

LA is 30 miles from me lol 5 minutes

Dr. Rick :

It said 212 but let me double check...

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

212 is NewYork 213 is LA

Dr. Rick :

yup...sorry about that. 213 is the area code. you are correct.

Dr. Rick :

Guess I need my eyes checked!

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

right on thank you sop very much

Dr. Rick :

my pleasure.

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

hey do you think it was a bad idea that my doctor did RK 2 times on each eye or was that normal ?

Dr. Rick :

I got his name off the American Academy of Ophthalmology membership list. You can't be a member there is you are not very well trained.....

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

sweet

Dr. Rick :

No. Many years ago I did RK too....It was not a great procedure an often had to be "enhanced". But it was the best we had at the time....

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

Yes Dr. Lyon did it a 2nd time because it did not hold

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

malpractice i think

Dr. Rick :

I've done the same myself.....but those days, thankfully, are gone. However, there are still folks such as yourself who are having issues due to it....sorry about that.

Dr. Rick :

nope. I was the standard of care at the time.

JACUSTOMER-3100l26v- :

OK thanks again very much ill write down the info you gave me and accept

Dr. Rick :

my pleasure. You know you can print this stuff out if you want

Dr. Rick :

bye.
