"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."
-Mari V.
"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.

"Can’t say enough positive comments for the entire staff and the facility itself. Everyone was friendly and very informative. Dr. Long called himself to check on her, as well as an additional call from a staff member."

"I was very pleased with all the staff at Marietta Eye Surgery. Everyone was very caring and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Long called later in the day and checked on me. This, I thought, was so nice for him to call instead of his assistant. I recommend this group highly to anyone that needs these services."
-Sheila B.
"The Doctors and all staffs are friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks Dr Byron Long."
-Gloria G.
"I recently had medically necessary eye surgery with Dr. Bryon Long on a Friday morning in their Canton Rd, Marietta, office. The procedure took 30 minutes and recovery 30 minutes. After a total of 2 hours, I was out of the office and on my way home. I had no pain after the procedure and followed their aftercare procedures to the letter to minimize bruising & swelling for a faster recovery. After 1 week, I returned to their office and they took out the sutures and gave me a second set of aftercare instructions. Following their procedures was very straight forward. The entire surgical staff team was very professional and caring. This is the second time I have used the Marietta Eye Clinic for eye surgery and was very pleased with the results both times. I would highly recommend this clinic for your eye surgery needs."
-Wayne A.

"I had Blepharoplasty done on both eyes last week by Dr. Long. I had an A+ experience with him and his staff from the initial consultation through the completion of the procedure. Dr. Long called me the afternoon following my surgery and the staff followed up again later. I would highly recommend this team for anyone looking to have the same procedure."
-Vickie F.
"I HAD EYE SURGERY BY DR. LONG LAST FRIDAY. HE AND THE ANESTLALOGIST WERE GREAT. THE ENTIRE STAFF TREATED ME SO WELL, EASING MY FEARS. I WOULD RECOMMEND MARIETTA EYE SURGERY TO ANYONE. THANKS FOR HAVING SUCH GREAT BEDSIDE MANNER TEAM FOR SURGERY. THANKS."
-Romana R.
"Dr. Long and his team were superb. They were timely, efficient, pleasant, informative, competent, and, most important, treated me as an individual, NOT as a patient. They were open to my request for a different anesthesia application. The surgery went well, the early result was a very satisfactory surgery. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Long as my team!!!"
-James S.
