Below is an email conversation between Dr. Allan Panzer and myself.
Dear Dr. Panzer,
I pleasurably give you my heart filled thanks for your "on the money" advise and recommendations concerning my decision of LASIK surgery. Obviously your plates full juggling Optometrist practice, expertise in court cases and various travel helping patient's in need.
I feel quite honored and appreciative that a gentleman of such exquisite character scheduled time to provide professional but critical advise to me, someone you don't know and never met. Your actions and willingness to help sheds light on the true reason your a Physician, to help people, regardless of monetary gain or public gratitude.
Taking your advise and armed with this email of your recommendations, enabled me to locate an Optometrist. His advise mimicked yours to a tee, he said, "with all of your previous issues, you should run not walk from any unnecessary surgery, including LASIK."
Sound familiar? It should, you suggested the same, so, eyeglasses and contacts are my only option.
Please understand the reason I contacted you, I have an advanced education but, my feeling of apprehension and unease were triggered when three Ophthalmologist assured LASIK was the answer. I truly don't want you to think I was a waste of your time.
Doctor, your professionalism is astounding, your open arm policy is refreshing and your attitude is to the point. The Physicians oath you were required to take upon receiving your license to practice, I can honestly say, you walk the walk, not talk the talk.
Thank you so much Doctor Panzer for everything. I guess there's no reason for me to call or schedule an appointment, your opinion was the key, I needed someone to trust, and that was you. We thank you again.

If you are struggling with dry eye syndrome, run, don't walk to see Dr. Panzer. After hitting 50, I developed a dry eye condition that made it impossible to wear my contacts for more than a few hours a day. Dr. Panzer has diligently and patiently worked with me to find a solution that will allow me to wear my contacts so that I have the acute clarity I need to read documents all day and be able to wear my contacts for days, not hours. Dr. Panzer is passionate about his patients and his practice. He is the most knowledgeable eye doctor I've ever met. (And, I confess, I did seek two other doctors in my quest to find a workable solution to my dry eye problems and came back to Dr. Panzer because no one knew as much about the condition as Dr. Panzer) . He recently prescribed a new eye drop that has been incredibly successful for me. He has offered to meet me at his office on Saturdays when I've been having eye issues but travelling during the week. How many doctors do you know that will do that? Probably none. His commitment to his patients, his passion for finding solutions to eye problems and his commitment to his professional service is outstanding. His rates are reasonable. HIs staff is competent. When you call with a question, he personally calls you back. I'd give him ten stars if I could for his dedication to his patients and practice.

Dr. Panzer is a very professional man. He takes as much time as needed to do an exam. He will answer any questions that you have concerning your eye exam. He has the up to date equipment to help with a faster and more thorough exam. I drive from Oklahoma and will continue to drive all the way to Houston as long as Dr. Panzer is there. I highly recommend his business to anyone with optometry needs.

On several occaisions Dr Panzer made time on off- hours or squeezed my wife or I in when we had an eye emergency.
You generally don't have to look for second opinions because if he is unsure he has no issues with sending you to the required specialist to double check a diagnosis.

Dr. Panzer is a great OD specialist, he has all the equipment and experience to do the job, and most of all he cares about his patients health. My mother always said Dr. Panzer really checks your eyes, so I tried him and realized why so many people use him. Dr Panzer is one of a kind in his practice.

I live about 30 minutes south east of Dallas in Kemp Tx. Needless to say driving to houston was a ""last"" resort!
My son has been experiencing Eye problems since the age of 5. I had been to every OD- specialist Metro plex area for 6 years!!! I was told he had poor eyesight! So He was given glasses. My child could not open his eyes in the light! Could not Play outside. A parent knows when something is NOT right!!! I made the drive to see Dr. Panzer around Feb. of 2010. The doctor looked in my sons eyes, turned to me and said : Your son has Thygeson's!!! I was floored. A diagnosis ""Finally"" . We are able to treat this with a eyedrop.(restasis). After treatment we find out my son does not even need glasses. His vision was fine the whole time! My son can now able to open his eyes outside, and I am happy to report very excited about taking drivers ed next year. Something that would not be possible without Dr. Allan Panzer!!!

Dr. Panzer has been my optometrist for many years. He has always been very straight forward and direct. He was very concerned when I developed dry eyes. After my opthamologist's treatment did not improve my condition, he stepped in and sent me to see a specialist for dry eye syndrom. Not only did he refer me to an opthamologist, but he also made me aware of a procedure I could benefit from, that at this point is only offered in New York. His care and concern for the patient is remarkable.

My wife and I have both been patients of Dr. Allan Panzer for over 15 years. He is a fantastic therapeutic optometrist who always goes the extra mile. We regularly visit the office for a wide range of services, including annual exams, eyewear, glass repairs, eye care supplies - and even an infection and scratched eye. His onsite lab is very convenient and his response time is quick. His appointments are thorough - and the office staff is knowledgeable and personable. We both highly recommend Dr. Panzer for your eye care needs!!!

I went to Dr. Panzer after seeing 3 other doctors for my dry eyes. He shared with me the latest dry eye research and we tried several different treatments. Finally my eyes started to get better. But i was not completely clear. He told me that he believed I must have some other problem that was causing my eyes to be so dry. He was absolutely correct. A trip to the dentist found an abscessed tooth and this was contributed to my dry eyes. If you have dry eyes I can highly recommend Dr. Panzer. I found his staff to be very helpful in explaining my vision benefits and helping get the most for my insurance dollar.
