Dr. Rosen is my eye surgeon. He performed a Triple DMEK on my left eye. I was going blind with Fuch's Dystrophy and cataracts. My corrected vision in my new eye is 20/25 and crystal clear. He listens, his staff are great and he makes you feel at ease with the whole process. I am thrilled to be able to see again. I can't wait to do my other eye. He is a good eye surgeon. I highly recommend him for DMEK transplants. It's a very difficult surgery, he can do it well.

Highly advise against letting Dr Rosen or horizon care anywhere near your eyes. I unfortunately went in to see this Dr with a simple night driving glare concern. Was led like a sheep to the slaughter to have a superficial TPK laser treatment to my cornea. I came out with destroyed vision in my left eye. Fortunately he only did this to one eye. After multiple failed attempts to get some help to fix the problem and not even a single returned phone call or email I have no choice but to go public.

Very precise Dr. Excellent at what he does best. I am happy he gave me the best eye care I needed.
