I've gone to Dr. Maxfield for over a decade...maybe even two! She has my full trust! I've just finished my 2nd cataract surgery with her, and am so pleased with the results. She's exceptional & experienced but, if there's an issue she's not comfortable with or is not her area of expertise there is no hesitation to refer you to someone else. And she refers to the best for your need, also.

Been a Dr. Maxfield patient for 23 years. Most thorough exam of my eyes compared to any other specialist I see. Such a pleasant personality. Exam procedure is carried out with very deft movements that make you feel so confident in her procedures and the results she provides you. No wasted time. So informative and always feel like I have been educated about my eye health. Have diabetes and she always checks for diabetes indication (none showing in last visit on 1/10/2020). Shannon, receptionist, is wonderful to talk to and always has the correct info related to my history and all appointments. Dr. Maxfield is so personable but you always feel like you have just received the most professional attention and care that is possible. I wish all my doctors were as thorough and professional as Dr. Maxfield is.

I have been a patient of Dr. Maxfield for many years. I was first examined by an optometrist who found an issue which she recommended Dr. Maxfield for her assessment & treatment. I’ve been with her since. Dr. Maxfield and her staff are always very professional, courteous and friendly. I greatly appreciate her medical expertise. I also appreciate the time she takes with me to explain her findings and answer my questions. Because of her care, I’ve recommended others to consider Dr. Maxfield.

Dr. Maxfield and her support staff were friendly and conducted themselves in a very professional manner. I was a former patient over 15 years ago and was pleased to see that their professionalism and high quality care had not changed.

Dr. Maxfield is friendly and professional. She takes time to explain what is being done and what to expect. I am in early stage macular degeneration and Dr. Maxfield took time to show me the photos of my retinas and explain the significance of what was shown. You can tell she really cares about her patients.

Routine annual checkup this visit (have been seeing Dr. Maxfield since 2011 after recently moving to the Roanoke area) I trust Dr. Maxfield explicitly. She is extremely knowledgeable and she explains everything in detail and very well. She is very easy to talk to and is very empathetic to your needs. She has performed cataract surgery on my husband with no complications. I wouldn't ever think of going to anyone else for my eye care needs.
