Dr Hogden’s Care and Practice Philosophy
Dr Hogden is focused on providing you with top-quality care that is personalized to your needs and goals. Just as every eye is distinctive, you have unique needs and ideas of what you hope to accomplish through treatment. Dr Hogden will spend time learning about your eye’s specific anatomy, your health and lifestyle, and your expectations before designing a comprehensive treatment plan that reflects these factors.
It is understandable that as you face medical or surgical eye treatment, you probably have many questions and perhaps some hesitation. Dr Hogden is committed to educating you about the recommended treatment, allaying your fears and instilling faith in his expertise to create an outstanding experience. Backed by a team of knowledgeable, compassionate professionals, Dr Hogden wants you to feel confident and comfortable at every point during your treatment.
Dr Hogden’s commitment to quality care ensures that you will receive the treatment you need. In the case of laser vision correction, not everyone is a suitable candidate for treatment. Dr Hogden will only recommend laser vision correction if you meet the appropriate criteria. If you do not qualify for laser vision correction, he will advise how you can be better served by other treatment or other medical experts.
