"I WAS a skeptic AND now I am a Believer!!!
Accompanying My husband, Robert Herrick, across the USA to have Laser Corneal Plastique procedure by Dr Arun Gulani has been a world wind of emotions. Knowing Roberts relationship in the industry as the president of Lacrimedics and his friendship with Arun has been 30+ years, I wanted to know what the ‘Catch’ was and ‘Why’ he would be the one chosen to do this procedure.
We were greeted by a wonderful staff that were gracious, personal and professional which made us comfortable going through the initial tests/measurements. Asking and taking care of our personal needs. Then Dr Gulani appeared Bigger than Life, with so much confidence and self assurance, asking And answering Roberts and My questions. I started to calm down and feel better. We left with his advice to visit St Augustine and enjoy old town. Wanting us to make the most of our trip prior to Thursday’s surgery (Day 3). We did and the trip was memorable!
Greeted the same, personal needs met, paperwork signed, staff and Dr Gulani asking about our visit to St Augustine, more measurements, questions answered...Feeling calmer and assured Dr Gulani is the right one to do this procedure on my Love. Saying prayers for both he and Robert! Left with more recommendations to visit the River Walk, Great Restaurants and to return next day for Surgery
Greeted the same, asked about our evening before, warm and welcoming responses (feeling like family). Then Surgery...nervous anticipation felt from Robert and I. We were allowed to view another patients procedure with their family and staff surrounding us. This experience is like no other! Dr Gulani is dressed in scrubs (designer, I’m sure!) and his energy, confidence is oozing and contagious. Robert enters surgery, I sit to view and 3.5 minutes later Robert walks out and is asked to read which he has not for 17 years without ‘cheaters’.
Tears streaming down my face with happiness, Robert in amazement and Dr Gulani Beaming!!
Group photo with all other weeks patients who are ready to fly home! We were cheering, thumbs up and smiles galore!!
What an experience .... so much more to write but the takeaway is NO Catch just pure enthusiasm, celebrating the human connection and we are so Grateful for a wonderful, mind blowing experience!" -Beth Ann K.
