What our Patients are Saying

"The service here is always good. My right eye is a lot better than what it was. The staff explain everything so you know what’s going on, and Dr. Gersman is the greatest. I can always depend on him, and I trust him."
Roger, December 2020

"I have been a patient for many years with multiple issues, Dr Gersman is by far the most professional physician I have ever worked with. He always takes the time to answer my questions and concerns. He understands my problems and has been most helpful in addressing them I would strongly recommend him to anyone."
~ Eric H., December 2020

"My visit with Vitreo-Retinal Consultants has always been a very pleasant place to get my eye care. The girls ALL are very kind, gentle and accommodating. I've had several of the doctors and they all are fantastic.  However Dr. Conti is my favorite. I call him the gentle giant. If you need more time with the doctors, they take time to explain and never make you feel rushed.  They have saved my eye sight and I will be eternally grateful."
~ Barb Maston, December 2020

"Dr. Conti is professional and thorough. I have a good deal of confidence in his care."
Dan and Mary Ann Chambers, December 2020
