A Patient's Testimonial

"Dr. Rothman truly changed my life. Before he performed my LASIK laser vision correction, I hassled constantly, first with glasses and later with contacts. Now whether I'm hiking, golfing or hitting the gym, I'm free. Plus, I have 20/15 vision – far better than what I had before. There's a reason thousands of people come to see Dr. Rothman for LASIK. He's the best." — Annette Macchia, ReMax Real Estate Agent
