Patient Comments (5)
Boulder, CO |
wonderful caring manner, dedicated to his patients, incredible surgeon., able to deal with very difficult cases. A gift to the community.
longmont, co |
I waited in the exam room for almost an hour. Finally I came out and asked if the doctor was coming. The office staff said he was called to an emergency and they didn't know when he would be back. No apology. There were five other patients waiting after me and it was 4:45 pm. I gave up and went home. Never saw the doctor.
Denver, CO |
Rotten bedside manner and always running behind. He does not apologize and makes little to no contact. He is rude

I had cataract replacement surgery in 2015 with Dr. Stewart. I chose replacement lenses with variable correction for distance and reading. After the surgery I needed a slight adjustment in my left eye to bring it up to 20-20, and Dr. Stewart made the correction with his state-of-the-art LASIK laser at no extra cost. I can't say enough about what a great eye surgeon Dr. Stewart is, and I wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend him to any family or friends.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Stewart. I have a very complex opthamologic situation that includes severe myopia, glaucoma, cataracts, and a torn retina. Dr. Stewart's expertise is the reason I can now see 20/20 without glasses or contacts and only magnifying lenses to read. He is an excellent doctor who really listens and who has lots of experience. I would recommend him without reservation. He takes the time he needs to explain complex medical terms. I trust him implicitly!
