in Bethlehem, PA |
Dr. Ross repaired a macular hole in my left eye. The surgery was performed October11th, 2016. I believe it took about 2 hours and everything went just great as far as I was concerned. Dr. Ross Told me what to expect during the healing time and it was just as he said, and my eye was completely healed by the end of December. I had never met Dr. Ross prior to this, but would highly Recommend Him to anyone

in Hellertown, PA |
Dr. Ross & his surgical team were so helpfull & kind the day of my surgry for retinal tears in my right eye. Everytime I called the office with questions they were answered. Dr. Ross answered all questions & listened to my concerns. He took time with me which you don't find in doctor's these days. I am glad my friend referred him to me.
Allentown, PA |
Dr. Ross has been an exceptional eye doctor and surgeon. He really listens to the patient and tries to understand one's concerns and questions. At first he seemed "aloof" but I learned that if I asked questions he really explained what the surgery would involve, what techniques he would use, what were the pros and cons of the surgery or procedure. Perhaps not all his patients want that level of detail but I found it very reassuring and gained confidence in his abilities to solve my problem.
in Bath, PA |
One of Dr Ross's associates recommended him and he was right. He explained things in a way I could understand with no nonsense. He recommended surgery and I took his advice and I don't regret it.
in Orefield, PA |
I sincerely cannot praise enough and express how happy I am that Dr. Ross performed my cataract surgery. He is a very thorough, competent and patient Doctor. Any questions you have, he will take the time to answer and will make sure that your wants/desires are taken in serious consideration with his diagnosis. If he can meet your needs with what can medically be performed he will do it, and that was very important to me! He also is funny and kind which makes doctor appointments enjoyable.

successful cataract surgery
Fountain Hill, PA |
Of course, I cannot evaluate Dr. Ross's expertise as an ophthalmologist, but I can say that he is attentive and very aware of my problems. Thankfully, he does not recommend procedures that are not right for me just to run up the costs. He always takes an interest in me; that is, I always have a book and he always asks interested questions about it. The staff is also fine.

He is always attentive to my needs and pleasant. My sight is in his hands and I trust!

He is always available for any type of emergency when needed and his office always has somebody on call. The staff is great with the patients.
