Dr. Platt is a tremendous doctor and person who truly cares about his patients. He is the only reason we continue to come to this clinic because the office staff is very unfriendly and make you feel like you are a bother and interrupting their day!

I have known Dr. Platt for 30 years as we attended medical school together. If he wasn't the top student in our class of over 200 future doctors I don't know who was. He is brilliant but humble and caring. He has been my ophthalmologist since he finished his residency and I consider myself very lucky that his office is not far away. I would make the trip even if it wasn't. I have personally attended many of his surgeries and he is an extremely skilled surgeon. Racine is very lucky to have

My son has seen Dr Platt since he was 8 months old (not yrs). He was born early, and to this day -age 24 yrs old- he has great eye site and still wears glasses. He is an excellent communicator with kids, and his team does a great job. His surgery skills are by far the best in town. 5 stars +

I was referred to Dr. Larry Platt by a colleague back in 2007. I live in Chicago so finding a vision professional is not a difficult task however finding an eye specialist who is compassionate, caring, committed to his patients satisfaction and has the knowledge and expertise that Dr. Platt has is not always the easiest of tasks. Seeing Dr. Platt is definitely worth the commute from Chicago to Wisconsin. I highly recommend Larry for all of your vision care needs.
