|LASIK SOS||Is There a Doctor in the House ?|
Profound Deficit of Mature Medical Solutions for LASIK Complications.
If asking nice for help worked, I wouldn't be paying for airplane banners or standing on sidewalks with signs that say, "LASIK Impaired My Vision." I have seen about 10 ophthalmologists and optometrists in my own search for cures for my own corneal disease - the symptoms of which manifested at the ttime of my own LASIK surgery.
When I visited Scripps in La Jolla with 'the sign', I soon had the VP of Operations, the Patient Advocacy Manager, and a "PR Guy" out on the sidewalk, with clipboards, taking notes. I would say that my presence on the sidewalk did have a motivating effect on these gentlemen. Suffice it to say that having a guy standing on the sidewalk with a sign is not good for business, if you're trying to sell an elective surgery. If there was a mature solution for my ocular disease, I would take it - and "Doctor" Gordon, "Doctor" Friedlaender, and "Doctor" Tooma certainly do have the incentive to offer such solutions.
There's only one problem. Those solutions don't exist. Yet.
