Kenneth Lindahl, MD
"When patients tell me how our treatments have changed their lives, I smile along with them. Since I've had LASIK myself, I understand their excitement."

After graduating summa cum laude, he attended the University of Rochester (U of R) School of Medicine, trained in internal medicine, and served the National Health Service Corps from 1983 to 1986.
