Review for Dr. Moreira

My daughter has been seeing Dr. Lazor since she was 9 mos old (she’s 17 now!) for recurrent ear issues. He is the absolute best! He’s very knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. He’s also a great surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Lazor!

Review for Dr. McConville

I love Dr. Moreira! She performed Lasik on me in 2018 and I have been so happy with the results. She has become my new eye care professional!

Review for Dr. Moreira

Surprised by all of these negative reviews. I've been seeing Dr. Alleyne for years and have always found him very attentive and helpful. He's really helped me identify and deal with my ADHD and anxiety.
