"Compassionate Care"

I am grateful for an amazing job he did on removing a dermoid cyst near my 18 month old baby's eye with such care and compassion from the very first appointment to the actual surgery. Outstanding professionalism is always appreciated but when it comes to trusting your baby's life to a doctor and his team (regardless of how big or small the operation is) you want to see care and compassion. Dr. Rand Rodgers definitely possess all these qualities.

"Professional and Helpful"

Excellent surgical experience.. Dr. Rodgers as well as his staff were extremely professional and helpful throughout the surgical process. I felt very confident at the time of consultation with Dr. Rodgers and that followed through before and after the surgical procedure. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rodgers and his expertise in eye surgery.

"Skilled Surgeon"

I was lucky enough to be referred to Dr. Rodgers. I have been thinking about having my eyes done for ten years. Dr. Rodgers was the reason why I booked without hesitation. His philosophy was in line with mine. I wanted someone to say to me that I looked well not that I had my eyes done. The procedure and office was professional and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I recommend Dr. Rodgers whole heartily.
