    Dr. Gerwin was recommended to me by a relative who also had a detached retina. I had an oil vitrectomy, a second vitrectomy to remove the oil, and laser for a tear in the other eye. All follow-up examinations by Dr. Gerwin and two other eye specialists demonstrated that the procedures had all been performed perfectly. The entire process was explained to me in detail, and from my perspective, could not have been done better. Dr. Gerwin's office personnel are friendly, responsive, and efficient.
