“I recently had eyelid surgery done by Dr. Timothy McDevitt. I have been a patient of his for several years now. He has been treating me for dry eyes. The surgery went very well. The nurse and anesthesia doctor were so professional answering all my questions. Carla at the desk also answered my questions about the medications that had been prescribed. I did use the pain medications that were prescribed and the cold compresses were a big help with the swelling. The ointment was a big help with the stitches. I am very pleased with my surgical experience and the results of the surgery.”

“Excellent bedside manor. Took his time to explain the DCR procedure to remedy a clogged lacramal(tear duct) gland. Surgery went uneventful. I recovered just as he explained. Scar is unnoticeable! 3 months after surgery, stent has been removed & doing well!
“Very professional, explained procedure well, always on time, takes the time with the patient.Highly recommended!”
“Dr. McDevitt removed a nevus—like a black mole about 3mm from my eyelid. Two weeks later, I can not even see where the cut and operation was. He is a master and highly recommend. He is very precise and business like, ecstatic with results.”
“I had my first appt and surgery today with Dr Timothy McDevitt. Initial impression was honest, straight forward and very professional. He explained everything to me & gave me visual of my issue. He provided me my options and was honest of what he wouldn’t recommend for me, but still left it up to me to chose what I would want to do. I told him the surgery and he was able to do it within the same visit. During this surgery he was pretty impressive. I’ve had my share of surgeries in my life and he was by far the most informative the entire time. Step by step walking me through what he was doing or what he was about to do. I was a little worried & nervous because I never met him nor ever had anything down with my eye before. Meeting him in the consultation eased my nerves. During the surgery I was calm and that was thanks to him and his professionalism. I know I just had the surgery and still need to do a follow up, however DrDevitt exceeded my expectations.”
