HAPPY PATIENTS

"Amazing Doctor. Very professional, excellent patient treatment and very efficient. Takes time to understand the patient and their needs. Also very resourceful. I am recommending friends and family to her. I had a complicated cataract operation and she and her team performed flawlessly. Very happy."

"Dr Guevara is a very skilled eye surgeon. My eyesight is so improved. I recommended her highly."

Linda Culver

"Dr. Guevara did surgery on my right eye. She is extremely caring throughout the entire procedure. What impressed me the most was that she actually called me the night of the surgery to see if everything was alright. You do not find many doctors that do that. Can't wait for her to do the left eye on 11/4."
