    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.
