My husband has Glaucoma, is partially blind and had developed alarmingly high pressure in his right eye. Dr. Rothstein jumped in and performed emergency surgery that same week and saved my husband's eyesight. His vision is improving day by day thanks to Dr. Rothstein. He along with Dr. Staiman are caring highly professional and provide quality care to their patients. The staff is very caring and professional as well.

I'm pleased to have Dr. Robert Rothstein as my daughter's ophthalmologist. He is knowledgeable, professional, and most important compassionate and humanitarian with his patients. He's been treating my daughter for few months and he has been on top of her illness, always making sure her glaucoma was controlled/healed. I highly recommend Dr. Rothstein as he is remarkable with the treatments he has provided to my child. His staff is kind and helpful making our visits pleasant.

Dr. Rothstein saved my mom’s sight! Dr. Rothstein is a very skilled and talented doctor who always prioritizes his patients’ interests and well being first. My mom has been a patient of Dr. Rothstein since last year and he has meticulously and consistently provided her with the best course of treatment for her glaucoma. Dr. Rothstein is very personable and will find time in his very busy schedule to perform emergency surgeries such as what he did with my mom. Both surgeries performed by Dr. Rothstein were successful! His hands are very blessed and you will find him to be full of compassion and be responsive towards his patients. Dr. Staiman who also is a doctor in Dr. Rothstein’s office demonstrates the same level of skill, compassion and care for her patients. Drs. Rothstein and Staiman complement each other well and often consult together to provide optimal care for their patients.

Dr. Rothstein is a specialist in neurology of the eye , so he and his staff are extremely thorough and diligent with giving you every possible test to diagnose your problems as specifically as possible. He also listens to all of your problems and takes meticulous notes. On a personal note, he has helped me tremendously to accomplish my life's goal to get into the Peace Corps. He encouraged me when I wanted to quit trying after they denied my first attempt. And thanks to his thoughtful, heartfelt words and a great letter to the Peace Corps, I got in finally!!! I owe a lot to Dr. Rothstein and am grateful to have met him as my ophthalmologist.
