I was referred to Dr. Robbins from my ophthalmologist for a weak eye muscle. The treatment before and after the surgery has been outstanding Her staff is very attentive also. I would highly recommend Dr. Robbins.

Review of Dr. Savino


Horrible dr. Very arrogant, rude and doesn't have any compassion at all. I waited 3 months to see him and he didn't help me at all. He saw me for 1 minute. Didn't run any tests or bloodwork. And as I walked by him in the hall, I heard him talking about me to his students.... No professionalism at all.

Review of Dr. Heichel


I experienced a life change with dr. Heichel and his staff the wait did not matter because I also see doctor KIKkwa as well. Speaking for myself I don't have a problem waiting at all because I know how well these two particular doctors are taking care of me doing my appointment visit my appointment visits are long which I appreciate a long appointment visit because I know everything I'm going through the process with the doctors trying to find out what is going on with my eyes. Thankful Dr. Heic

Review of Dr. Robbins

- in Oceanside, CA |

I was referred to Dr. Robbins by my retina eye specialist at Shiley Eye Institute. I experienced double vision for years and wore a prism in my glasses to help alleviate my double vision. Dr. Robbins suggested muscle eye surgery to correct the double vision and eliminate the need for a prism. I chose to have the suggested procedure. I see better now than I have in 15 years, and I no longer need a prism in my glasses. I am grateful to Dr. Robbins for her excellent surgical skills and care.

Review of Dr. Robbins

Dr. Robbins is an excellent physician and eye surgeon. She corrected my vision. immediately after surgery I can see better than I had since I was a child and that was 60 Years ago. She has great "bed side manner." 5 star! I highly recommend Dr. Robbins!

Review of Dr. Heichel

- in El Centro |

For 10 years I suffered with dry eyes and the last 2 years with red, bloodshot, irritated eyes that teared 24/7. My local opthalmologist had no idea what the problem was. Dr. Heichel diagnosed the problem and fixed it. He performed a conjunctival plasty with amniotic membrane transplant on each eye in June 2017. Today my eyes are beautiful! No more pain, bloodshot or teary eyes. They look and feel normal and I can wear contacts again! Dr. Heichel is kind, gentle, smart, loves what he does!

Review of Dr. Savino


Quite possibly the worst doctor I’ve ever seen. I waited 6 MONTHS for an appointment with him to hopefully figure what was wrong with my eyes. When I got to the appointment, I heard him in the hall telling his students that he was sure I was lying and making up my symptoms! He basically told me he had no idea what it was and I left. I finally found a doctor a couple years later that, within 5 minutes, said that she was pretty sure she knew what it was, and I was finally diagnosed. Worst dr ever!
