When it comes to your eyesight, Dr. Patron is THE BEST. I had to have a very serious surgery on my eye, his expertise and skill at what he does gave me my eyesight back! He’s listens to your concerns, he’s caring about your situation and knowledgeable in his field. I wouldn’t trust my eyes to anyone else. His staff is also accommodating and friendly.

I got into Dr. Patron last minute for a consult and further testing after my annual optometry appointment. He was very thorough in his explanation of the results of my testing and made me feel more at ease.

First visit to discuss retinal tear found at my annual eye exam. Very impressed by Dr. Patron's thorough examination and explanation of why my tear healed itself and that I would not need further treatment for this problem. Also discussed macular degeneration and set up appointment for followup. Staff very professional and caring. I strongly recommend Dr. Patron for patients who have retinal and related eye issues.

Dr. Patron has operated on my left eye 4 times. I had a very severe detachment. He is no doubt the best eye surgeon anywhere, and he is also caring and personable. I have had many followup visits even though the last surgery was now about 6 years ago. He takes the time to check up with me, and always has time to answer any questions I have. He cares about everything in my life, and wants to be sure everything is fine. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with a retina. He is the best.

I had an awful experience with an intravitreal injection; Patron's assistant apparently did not get all of the betadine out of my eye, and I suffered excruciating pain for about 16 hrs. Neither their triage person, their after-hrs. doctor, nor Patron had any empathy for me and poo-pooed my futile pleas for help. On the phone the next day, Patron did listen to my story but said that out of 200 injections given by their practice that day, I was the only one who had had a problem and that this was the best they could do. The fact is that this experience is relatively rare for patients and they had made a mistake. I told Patron that if this was the best they could do--it wasn't good enough. I have had one other such injection and had much better treatment. Won't let him touch me again.
