A true doctor to his oath, he is extremely good at making you look your best. His presurgery visits kept me informed of what was best for my condition and what to expect, and post surgery visits tweaked my total look plus he took care of a precancerous spot with utmost concern and caution on my face. Highly recommended.

Not to start off with a pun but when it comes to oculoplastic surgery, Dr. Laquis is the best option in all of Southwest Florida. I guess his full schedule speaks for itself. He is not only highly specialized but he is personable and caring. His office staff are efficient and also caring. He is the one.

Dr. Laquis was especially helpful during a difficult time for me. He personally called me a couple of times to see how I was feeling and healing after a biopsy. He referred me to an excellent medical oncologist for a follow-up. He also explained everything he did before he get it and put me at ease. It’s staff has been efficient, friendly and very professional. I wish I could find a primary as good as Dr Laquis and his office staff.

I was referred to Dr. Laquis by my ophthalmologist aftet he got the results of a CT scan. I was able to see Dr laquis the same week . He set up a biopsy ASAP, called me himself after the biopsy to check how I was, and also called me when he got the results. He explained everything in detail through patient-doctor relationship and his staff did the same. They also arranged for my pickup and to bring me home after the biopsy. I was referred to a medical oncologist to continue my treatment. I wish all doctors and staffs would treat their patients with as much respect as I was treated.

Outstanding examination and explanation of diagnosis and available procedures. Efficient and pleasant office staff. After leaving appointment, I had an additional question, after a brief wait, Dr Laquis saw me again and patiently answered my additional question. At Surgi-center, staff was extremely efficient and courteous. The medical staff answered all questions, were appropriately concerned for my comfort and prior medical and allergy issues. Every member of the staff was professional.

I had the best experience going in to see Dr. Laquis! The staff was great and so very kind. Dr. Laquis was so up beat and very professional. I was referred to him by another doctor to look at something on my eyelid. He found basil cell and removed it all so quickly it was over before I knew what happened. I’m so relieved!!! The mark is gone and my eyelid looks like there was never a thing wrong with it.. No more basil cell! Thank you Dr. Laquis! What a christmas present!!

My experience as a patient of Dr. Laquis, has been first class! He is respectful and attentive, highly professional, and possess a warm and caring attitude. Dr. Laquis made a huge impression on me during my initial visit with him, but his acknowledgement of me by name during my pre-op at the Laser Center, spoke volumes about him as a doctor. I was more than a body to him, and that was very comforting. Thanks for a successful surgery Dr. Laquis, and much love to you and your caring staff.

Doctor Stephen J. Laquis was amazing, friendly & a life saver for my 9 month old son when it came to cauterizing his Hemangioma really close to his eye that had popped. Very professional & will use again for any cosmetic needs (or wants) in the future.

I went to Dr. Laquis based on the referral from my eye doctor for eyelid surgery. Both he and his staff are very pleasant, accommodating and professional. I live in Naples, so I chose to be picked up for my surgery which was to take place in Ft. Myers. I was picked up at 6:45 AM and was back home by 10:00 AM. I am very happy I chose Dr. Laquis and would recommend him and his staff to anyone.

Surgery was very quick and virtually painless. Dramatic results as my peripheral vision had been impacted. A couple of weeks of minor swelling and tightness is the extent of discomfort. I think postop instructions using ice and drops for irritation was key. 3 weeks after surgery friends raved about the difference and thought I just had pink eye shadow on! Even my husband couldn’t believe the difference. The whole staff were very nice and encouraging

I am diabetic, & the morning I arrived for my upper & lower eyelid surgery my sugar was extremely high. Instead of sending me home, the holding nurse at the surgery center worked to get my sugar lowered. After about 1 1/2 hrs., she got my sugar down so Dr. Laquis could do the surgery. The operation was painless & my recovery has been remarkable. After 2 wks. my discoloration is gone. The staff at the surgery center, the office staff & Dr. Laquis displayed a very caring attitude throughout

Dr. Laquis is the best! He recently completed my upper and lower eyelid surgery and I couldn’t be more pleased. He and his staff are professional, friendly and efficient.

I had surgery for my upper eyelids. Only 12 days ago. Dr. Laquis and his staff were amazing. I work in a big hospital and had to return to work on the fourth day post op. People could not believe I just had surgery. Got a lot of complements on how great the incision look and the fact that I had no bruising. He def has a magic touch! I highly recommend this great surgeon and his caring staff.

Not only is Dr. Laquis an excellent plastic surgeon for typical eye lifts with mine turning out beautifully but, he is a champion with extraordinary procedures. 4 years later, from Graves Disease, my “beautiful” eyes protruded and besides looking dreadful, were tremendously sensitive to light. He first performed the least invasive by stitching my outer eyelids. That wasn’t good enough so he grafted synthetic cartilage inside my lower lids. Success! My eyes are now “pretty!”

Just never thought I would have my eyes done….I should have seen this wonderful Doctor years ago. Not only is my vision improved but my entire outlook at feeling more confident to look my best is over the top. This was the perfect experience for me… professional, friendly, informative…. made me feel like family! I am thrilled to say the least and every look in the mirror confirms my sense of well being.

Dr Laquis and his entire staff were well above my expectations. I had been referred by a friend who told me that Dr Laquis was the best and he was right. I had 3 procedures done at the Ft Myers medical center. Brow Lift, Lower and Upper Eye Lid surgery. The surgical center was excellent and the staff was exceptional. My follow up appointments were wonderful. I have recommended 4 friends to Dr Laquis

Dr Laquis and his team are amazing. I had some “scary to me” skin cancer on my eyelid found by my dermatologist, I was referred to Dr. Laquis. He saw me within a week and got me in quickly for the surgery then recovery was a snap, I did listen well and stayed away from golf and tennis for 2 weeks (that was hard for me, but so worth it). I was so impressed with the team and the procedure, it was over in 15 minutes. I am very happy I was referred to this expert eyelid team.. Outstanding!

I was pleased with my first visit till my last! I went in for eye lid surgery consultation in November and I really wanted the surgery be completed before 2017 since my insurance covered the procedure. The girls in his office were able to get everything approved quickly and I made it. My results were above and beyond my expectation. I look amazing and natural. Most people get a brow lift and Dr. Laquis said I would not need it was the best decision for me. He was correct!

Dear Dr. Laquis, Thank you for the excellent care on my recent visit to the Naples area.
