    Dr. Rosenbaum has always been very thorough, and even this last visit, he was checking immunizations, and realized that I was not up to date on one of them, and I just really appreciated his care and concern that I am getting the best health care that I can, and stay healthy.

  • Nov 21, 2018

    Excellent staff ....

  • Nov 11, 2018

    On 11/6, I received an injection of Orzudex into my left eye. I was very confused about the procedure: one doctor gave me a numbing shot, the other administered the rest of the procedure without much explaining. I was in great pain and could not see enough to drive home, which I managed somehow. The doctor did not tell me about possible side effects or how to handle the regime of eye drops I had been using prior to the injection. The doctor did give a partial reply to my email the next day. I contacted the doctor on call that evening because I was in panic. It was a bad visit, and I do not understand why there was no support and no concern about my well-being. I was just sent home and told I would be called the next day about my next appointment.

    The most professional doctor that I've ever really been around. The most intelligent group of people. Dr. Rosenbaum is a unbelievable person, has a unbelievable mind, his experience, the school he went to, the years he put in, I would pass on the family to all families.
