In 1991 I had a retinal tear without detachment. Dr. Charles opted for cryotherapy. He conferred with Dr. Kalkut, primary physician at the time, who concurred with Dr. Charles' decision. the procedure was successful. Dr. Charles took care of me for over twenty years. He is an excellent physician with a kind caring manner. My physicians in Virginia comment on the level of care I initially received with Dr. Charles.

Dr. Charles has been treating me for age related macular degeneration complicated by multiple sclerosis for a few years. He has always listened to what I have to say, is compassionate and clearly explains what is going on, what he is going to do and what I can expect. His office staff has always been great! I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Charles to friends family and even strangers.

I was referred to him by my regular doctor, but his advice was ‘to google’ my condition. He was halfway out the door before I could even open my mouth and ask him a question, and he knew I had traveled just to see him. He was arrogant and rude. What a waste of time and money. I was so disappointed with his show of professionalism and his care for patients
