"Dr. Gersman saved my eyesight. He is a fine doctor and very patient-friendly. I can't recommend him too highly."
~ Wil, September 2021

"Vitreo-Retinal Consultants have a well organized clinic, they get you in and out in a reasonable amount of time. I think this happens because everyone knows what there job is. Dr. Gersman, who is the best in my book, saved my one eye after a tear in the retina."
