Dr. Solomon performed cataract surgery on both eyes. At his recommendation I opted for laser surgery and the PanOptix lens. After decades of wearing glasses, I no longer need them.

Dr istre explained my partial seizures to me more efficiently than staff did at my brain abscess surgery. He listened. His personality was warm and not intellectually intrusive. He did not leave me feeling invalidated although I frankly know little about my condition. Thank you

Dr Hughes practices medicine. He isn’t looking at his computer. He actually takes a detailed history and asks pertinent questions until he understands the problem. If you’re looking for a new friend, keep looking. If you’re looking for a great clinician, then he’s your guy.

Treats his patients as numbers and does follow through with tasks asked of him will immediately changes your meds to what he wants you to take for your condition. Doesn't like to hear feedback because apparently he knows it all. Very bad experience with this guy. Don't choose him as your doctor

Saw Dr. Rosas twice for Achilles tendonosis. Never got an XRay even though I asked about doing one. Final recommendation from him was medical marijuana. Later saw another ortho specialist, and got an immediate Xray, and left seeing and knowing exactly what the problem was.
