Dr. Phillpotts diagnosed my problem quickly and recommend a course of action. After a course of injection into my left eye, my vision is back to normal. Thank you, Dr. Phillpotts.

Dr Philpotts has been my doctor since the beginning of my journey with age related wet macular degeneration. I have found him to be a top professional in helping me deal with this issue for three years. He is committed and dedicated to his patients'well being. I am fortunate to have him.

My experience with Dr. Phillpotts has been OUTSTANDING. He spent as much time as needed explaining what was going on with my vision. I needed surgery, and I am very pleased with the results. His staff is wonderful. I needed paperwork filled out within 24 hours for my job. His staff had it completed and faxed through within a couple hours. I received a follow up phone call the evening of my surgery to make sure everything was going ok. I highly recommend Dr. Phillpotts.

Dr. Phillpott gave me a second chance to receive clearer vision after a Retina detachment. He gave me all my options in detail and revealed what the outcome could be, good or bad. I was scared but put my faith in his hands. No one could ever know how much his expertise and patient care means to me.

As a 74 year old man, I have Coloboma in my right eye since birth and have no vision in it. After having a Torn Retina repaired by Dr. Phillpotts, then returning to have a Cataract Lens Implant by Dr. Gills, then returned to have a surgery to have Floaters removed by Dr. Phillpotts, I now have my vision back in my left eye. My wife and I believe that if it were not for Dr. Phillpotts I would not be able to be driving today. I recommend St. Luke's and Dr. Phillpotts to all my friends and family.
