I needed a second opinion for a diagnosis that an optometrist gave me. Dr. Roberts gave me an explanation of what was going on, while also considering how I may react. He led me in the right direction and I understood exactly what he was saying.

Extremely professional, knowledge, personable and very prompt. He saved my son's eye from a terrific infection. He saw us right away and followed up the next day. He is a very friendly yet serious doctor. He directed us to the cliniche was going to be at the next day and when we arrived we waited maybe 10 minutes. I will forever be grateful for his medical treatment of my son's eye. I will highly recommend him to everyone I know who needs an eye physician.
