"I would highly recommend Dr. Long! I was having problems with my eyes for over a year. I was referred to him by another eye doctor. Dr. Long is the only doctor out of many I saw over the last year that was able to figure out what the problem was. He took great care of me during my surgery. He performed the surgery seamlessly, and I am so happy to have this resolved."

"I had a good experience at Marietta Eye Clinic. The staff is wonderful, and I am happy with Dr. Long."
-Marlene D.
"Dr. Long recently removed a basil skin cancer from my lower eyelid/waterline area. A wedge surgery was required to remove the cancer. Dr. Long assured me that he would make as few cuts as possible and that it would heal nicely. It's been a little over a month, and you can't even tell where he cut my eyelid. He's amazing! The entire staff at the office and the surgical center were fabulous, and I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend Dr. Long and his team!"
-Amy B.

"Dr. Long did a good job reassuring my daughter about the surgery and called me as soon as the surgery was complete. The experience was a fabulous one!"
