Had been over 5 years since I had last seen an eye doctor and my entire experience with Dr. Rothman and her office was fantastic! The office staff was friendly and efficient and made sure to explain my insurance benefits and copay before my appointment. After completing the new patient paper work, I was taken back for a few eye tests by an equally competent and personable technician. Already very impressed with the appointment, I then saw Dr. Rothman and she went above and beyond my expectations. She was very thorough and patient and even read my mind before I could articulate the issues I was experiencing. She then took the time to clearly explain what was happening with my eyes and let me know what I could do to keep them working optimally in order to minimize discomfort and delay permanent corrective lenses. I highly recommend Dr. Rothman to anyone looking for an eye doctor!!

Doctor was excellent, but the wait times were pretty miserable. Appointment was for 12:30, didn't see anyone until 1 (a tech), saw doctor once before 2 PM (had to leave then). Coming in a week later to finish follow-up with doctor (needed to come for a follow-up anyways).

Dr. Rothman is fabulous -- she spent a long time going over my eyesight and discussing factors that may have caused it to deteriorate. She answered all my questions thoroughly and explained things in a way that a lay person can understand. Further, it's been a while since I visited an office with as attentive staff. Highly recommended.

Dr. Rothman was very friendly and impressed me with her thoroughness and attention to detail. She really took the time to try a number of different lenses for me and double checked my responses. She explained the issues involved in getting an accurate refraction in my post cataract surgery situation and in general was highly competent and kind. I definitely recommend her. The technician who did my preliminary exam was also very solicitous, as were the people helping with eyeglass choices. There's a nice and professional atmosphere in the office.

I really liked Dr Rothman. She was incredibly nice and patient and explained everything. I'm on the borderline but she didn't suggest glasses so I don't worry about being sold anything I don't need (a weird fear of mine at medical appointments!). I could not be happier with this experience.

I cannot recommend Dr. Rothman more highly. She listened to my history of eye issues and thoroughly examined my eyes with a view to those concerns and any possible others. She discovered an unrelated abnormality in my eyes that no other eye doctor has noticed. Incredibly thorough. It is evident that she cares about her patients.

She's a marvelous doctor! Cares, explains everything incredibly thoroughly. I couldn't ask for more and highly recommend her. There's generally a 10 minute or so delay in getting called and then another 10-15min delay after tests are done to actually see the dr, but I'll take it in order to work with Dr. Rothman, as she's great. Its her thoroughness, I'm sure, that makes things run a little behind.

I was extremely pleased with the professionalism and service of Dr. Rothman. This was my first visit with her and I love that she took the time to give me a comprehensive eye exam - much more comprehensive than my previous provider had ever given me. This was helpful as we were able to detect some medical concerns that otherwise would have gone unnoticed. The office was very well kept and the staff was super inviting and accommodating. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rothman to anyone interested in a professional that will genuinely keep the patients best interest in mind.

I've had eye exams with various places ffor 15+ years and this was by far the best experience I have ever had. MVA has another separate research facility, which keeps them up-to-date on the most cutting edge tools and technology to assist highly knowledgeable doctors. Dr. Rothman was incredible! Not only was she friendly and had excellent "bedside manner" but was also extremely knowledgeable (on a variety on medications, eye treatments, types of lenses, etc) on how to approach issues like dryness and allergies. Her exam was very thorough - she made sure to call me back to check on one of the technology-enabled tests before sending me off. I never felt so confident in the results an exam. Highly recommended.
