Dr. Roberts Jr' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Roberts Jr "Dr. J.Matthew Roberts joined the Eye Institute as a specialist in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery. Additionally, he assumed the general ophthalmology practices of Dr. Ronald F. Gates, M.D. and Dr. David L. Edwards, Jr., M.D. As an oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Roberts performs surgery for patients with vision disorders, cosmetic needs, or other medical problems caused by trauma. This also involves management of conditions such as epiphora (tearing), infections and inflammation of the lacrimal system, ptosis (drooping) and malposition of both the upper and lower eyelids, orbital disease, and orbital fractures resulting from trauma. Plastic and reconstructive eye surgery, or oculoplastics, can enhance vision, appearance, and overall self-esteem. Dr. Roberts is a graduate of Southwestern University, Georgetown, Texas and the University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine, in Kansas City. He completed his residency in ophthalmology at Oklahoma State University, where he served as Chief Resident during his last year of training. Dr. Roberts then completed a one-year private fellowship in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery with Dr. Gerard J. Hunter, M.D., Assistant Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology at the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine. During his residency, Dr. Roberts received the distinguished Patrick Murray Award, for obtaining the highest score on the national Ophthalmic Knowledge Assessment Program (OKAP) exam.

Patient Comments (2)
Tulsa, OK |
Rude and aloof. Had surgery-- never talked to me in preop or postop. No follow up appointment; no call from office to see if procedure was successful. Said to my driver, "tell her if it didn't work, find an ENT." Would not recommend him to anyone.
Tulsa, OK |
Dr. Roberts was rude and refused to offer satisfactory explanations of my condition and proposed treatment.
