I have been a patient o Dr. Rothchild for 30 years, as eye disease runs in my family. He took excellent care of my mother, though she did have RP, which to this day has no cure. He took care of my husband with laser surgery , due to extremely high eye pressure, the outcome was very successful . He has done two cataract surgeries for me , and the outcome has been amazing. I love everyone who works along side of him, and the front desk people are extremely competent and congenial.

Left a prior review and couldn’t update it so submitted a more current one. Will not return to this office as I am extremely disappointed in the outcome of my cataract surgery. I am experiencing several post op complications. When I went to see the dr, he basically dismissed them saying “after 6 months, what you have - is what you get”. I had my other eye done by a different surgeon elsewhere and never experienced any problems. Will now have to follow up with someone else for my concerns.

Dr. Rothschild disregarded my needsI phoned several times completely. Had to find another doctor that has worked closely with me to correct the nightmare and damage regarding my cataract surgeries. My calls and follow up discussions were dismissed from Dr. Rothschild. His arrogance and lack of integrity is insulting at the very least. I just received a call from his office to schedule my appointment which indicates he doesn’t pay attention to his patients

Overall I was not very satisfied with my recent office visit . This was a proximately my fourth visit to his office over the last three years and he was offering me procedures that were not necessarily needed in the present time at an exhorbitant cost. Got a text mission was very abrupt with me email was not very receptive .
