My grandson was diagnosis with Browns disease and Strabismus in both eyes. Another doctor said he will need surgery. I made an appointment w/Dr Carothers and he said let's try glasses first and it worked. He was so patient and explained everything. I will never forget him because there was not a need for surgery. Thank you.

On March 8, 2016, I had strabismus surgery with Dr. Carothers. Throughout my surgery and post-op treatment Dr. Carothers was very thorough and knowledgeable. I would recommend Dr. Carothers to anyone who is in need for strabismus surgery.

Horrible! Waited 2 hours, then to be talked to belittling by him and his nurse. Also rude front desk women. Will never go back...wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.
