in Boca Raton, FL |
Was blown away by how Dr. Marrotte was with my exam....first time in a long time a Doctor took the time and initiative to examine my eyes to determine the correct way to fix my problem! I never thought I'd be able to get 20/20 vision out of my lazy eye! THANK YOU! Also correct my Toric lens implant that had moved over time.....Can't wait see clearly again!

Very friendly and seemed knowledgable. Made sure I knew what was happening during the check-up and what everything he found meant for me going forward.
in Boca Raton, FL |
Dr. Marrotte and his staff were very competent, friendly and professional. I ordered two pairs of glasses on a Monday afternoon, and they were ready just two days later! I am very pleased with the glasses, and will definitely go back for my next eye exam.
