“Dr Mandel and the whole office team are not only professional and super-talented but also kind and thoughtful. I have to say I was nervous going into the office for the first time to discuss LASIK (particularly since my job depends on my eyes), but they answered all my questions patiently and made me feel completely confident with my decision. I had the procedure done about two months ago, and I’m loving being able to see without glasses! I highly recommend Dr. Mandel and am confident he is the most qualified and committed LASIK doctor in the Bay Area if not the nation. Thank you, Dr. Mandel!” – Yelp Patient Review

“As a practicing optometrist who works with many eye surgeons I chose Dr. Mandel for my eye surgery. He is the ultimate professional, compassionate and his staff is superb. There is a comfort level to his care that is very reassuring and supportive. I recommend him to my patients for cataract and refractive surgery, as well as, any corneal condition requiring extra expertise. ” – Google Patient Review

Mark R Mandel, MD

Physicians and their staff have a wide variety of laser surgeons from whom to choose. However, unlike yourself, they have the ability to do more detailed research through a complex network of health care professionals. A ‘Doctor’s Doctor’ is a term used by physicians and health care professionals to define a highly respected physician who they would send their friends and family members to or even go themselves. This physician gains respect over the years based on clinical expertise and patient outcomes in a specialty. Doctors are in a unique position to know where to find the best doctors in their community.

Dr. Mandel has earned a reputation as a doctor’s doctor in Northern California. Clinicians commonly seek his care for themselves and refer family and friends when eye care issues arise. Below is a partial list of physicians, surgeons, and optometrists, as well as their relatives and staff members, upon whom we have performed surgeries such as LASIK, LASEK, cataract surgery, EPI-LASEK, or PRK or other locations.
