Testimonials

“Dr. Roberts, thanks so much for giving me back my eyesight!!  It is amazing what I have been missing for years!!  Working with you and your staff has been an incredible experience both at your office, and the Shady Grove Adventist Hospital!!-Thanks Again From: David Rizzo”

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS PRACTICE HAS BEEN GREAT. -THANK YOU!
Dr. Roberts was excellent in his service and the rest of his staff was great as well. Everyone in the office was very pleasant. Dr. Roberts thoroughly explained the procedure to me in my consultation and he made me feel very comfortable during the actual procedure. Dr. Roberts made it a priority to give me a phone call later that night to make sure that everything was still ok and to see how my vision was. Overall I am thoroughly pleased with the results of the procedure, not to mention I now have 20/20 vision. I recommend Dr. Roberts services to anyone who is interested in improving their vision.

They were very professional and helpful to me. I asked a lot of questions and Dr. Roberts took time to make sure I did understand all areas before and after surgery. I am so satisfied.

Love it! Thank you for providing me a lifetime change and unbelievable experience.
I was very pleased with the time Dr. Roberts took to explain the procedures available, the pros and cons of each. I am pleased with the results. It was especially nice to receive a call from Dr. Roberts after the procedure. I found the entire office staff helpful and friendly. The follow up today was fast and easy.– Very Pleased!
Great experience! Very, very glad I got the procedure done and have NO issues with my vision whatsoever!!! PRK is a blessing and so is Dr. Roberts!
Dr. Roberts is an amazing doctor. He and is staff worked extra hard to accommodate my busy schedule. Before the LASIK surgery, my vision was horrible. Dr. Roberts imporved my vision and I see better than I ever thought was possible. I will always highly recommend Dr. Roberts and the office staff. They provided the needed level of service in a professional and friendly manner. Thank you Dr. Roberts and staff, you have changed my life. – Happy LASIK Patient

Overall my experience has been amazing. The staff and Dr. Roberts have been a great help before, during, and after my surgery. I highly recommend to all my friends and family to come here. Dr. Roberts explained to me everything in depth before my surgery. He made me feel very confident about having it done. I originally was going to have surgery done at another place but right off the bat he made me feel secure about the procedure. In the end I chose for him to do it and I don’t regret for a minute.– Thank you!

It is great to have perfect vision, would recommend this to anyone with glasses!

“Doc,LeafThank you for taking care of me and my eyes! Wishing you the best for the holidays and New Year!

Dr. Roberts is great – took the time to explain everything and all my options. The PRK procedure went great, highly recommended. Went to a lot of places before coming here (TLC, LasikPlus, etc etc) and was never able to sit down with the surgeon 1 on 1 to discuss my needs.

-Calvin Nguyen

Very professional and personable office setting. All of my questions were answered before I even had to ask them. Lasik was quick, easy, and painless and I could see immediately – back to work the next day. Dr. Roberts is the man and his staff is the best!

Dr. Roberts,

Thank you so much for being so selfless and taking time on your day off to do my LASIK surgery. Because of your kindness and professional procedure, I can see better than I could have ever imagined. Because of your thoughtfulness and helpfulness, I was able to achieve my lifelong goal of becoming a Police Officer. Thank you again for all that you have done. May God bless you and your family!

Sincerely,

Nathanial Jordan Owens

Austin Howard“When searching for a doctor to perform my LASIK Surgery, we looked through many doctors in the New York and New Jersey area. After speaking with the staff at Shady Grove Ophthalmology, it was a very clear decision to choose Dr. Roberts to perform the surgery. I am beyond pleased with the professionalism and outcome of the surgery, and will definitely be recommending Dr. Roberts to many more friends, family and teammates! I couldn’t be happier! “

– Austin Howard ‘GO JETS’

LASIK Surgery: “The best money I have ever spent.  From the staff to Dr. Roberts, I felt welcomed, cared for and reassured every step of the way.  I loved that the doc called me the evening of my procedure to see how I was doing.  Nice touch Doc… Thanks to all at Shady Grove Ophthalmology!

– Michael Scarano, M.D.

 

LASIK Custom: “From start to finish everything went perfect. My surgery was at 1pm, by 7pm I was seeing clear and it was like I never had the surgery 6 hours prior.  I woke up the next morning and was seeing even better.  This was one of the best choices I have ever made.  I will be singing my praises of Dr. Roberts to my friends, family and co-workers.”

– Charles Lawson

 

Rough out my Air Force career the flight surgeons always told me “stop leading with my head” I had several crashes and numerous surgeries but none of those excellent physicians and staffs compare to Dr Roberts.  His professional practices and concern for his patients set a very high standard in the profession. He is a truly conscientious and sincere surgeon and I consider a friend as well.  I have been asked by virtually everyone I know and have met how my surgery went. Outstanding seems so trite in describing his skills as a surgeon.  To say I’m very pleased and grateful for his treatment and skill seems inadequate but there will will always be a sincere gratitude for him as a surgeon and compassionate human being.

With the deepest appreciation and respect,

James A Crickenberger

“I underwent the PRK procedure at Dr. Roberts’ Shady Grove office. He and his support staff were completely friendly and helpful throughout the pre-op and post-op processes. Dr. Roberts was very detailed and precise about my choices between PRK and Lasik. After I decided on the PRK, he thoroughly led me through the post-op and recovery times and procedures. All of his information has been spot on as scheduled. I would definitely recommend anyone who has considered laser vision correction to at least schedule a consultation appointment. Dr. Roberts and his staff will make you feel welcomed and lead you to the best decision for you!” Anthony Armstrong Washington Redskins Receiver
 
I have seen the most amazing year, thanks to Dr. Roberts ! I had always been very nearsighted and wore hard, then gas permeable, contact lenses for 45 years to correct the nearsightedness (and had to use reading glasses as I got older).  When my eyes couldn’t stand the contact lenses any more, I was left with only bifocal eyeglasses.  Then my range of vision was limited.  Dr. Roberts suggested that, since I also had cataracts, he could replace my lenses with the Toric lenses and correct both my vision and cataracts.  I agreed to do it. Everything was explained to me and every question was answered.  The surgery in each eye was non-eventful with little, if any, discomfort.  The recovery was quick and I was back at work after a restful day at home.  I can see without glasses or contact lenses for the first time that I can remember.  Dr. Roberts also adjusted my vision so that I don’t need reading glasses either.  My life has changed dramatically for the better! I’m going rafting down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon this summer.  I can’t wait to SEE the beauty of it!  I can’t imagine how hard it would have been to travel down rapids with glasses or contact lenses! Dr. Roberts has been my caring and trusted ophthalmologist for many years.  I didn’t realize until now, what a miracle worker he was. Thank you, Dr. Roberts! Georgana Finn  
   
With his exceptional care and expertise in LASIK eye surgery, Dr. Anthony Roberts has changed my life. I came to him with vision that was so poor, seeing anything passed 6 inches of my face without the help of my glasses or contacts was truly impossible. I had been living and suffering this way since I was 4 years old, when I had to get my first pair of glasses. By 11 years old, I started wearing contacts and have worn them everyday ever since. I really have never known what it felt like to see. Even with corrective wear, my vision was still blurry. I have never been able to see the “Big E” on the eye chart, and while many people have the ideal 20/20 vision, my vision was in the 20/700 range! With time and age, each year my vision became increasingly worse. It’s always been frustrating and even sad to me when I wake up in the morning and life is a blur. The worst was when my glasses would be knocked off the table or fall behind my bed in the middle of the night! In the morning, I would have to call for help to have someone find my glasses, so that I could see and make my way to the bathroom where my contacts would be, so I could start my day. Thanks to Dr. Roberts, he made seeing possible for me like I had never experienced before. Immediately after he performed my LASIK eye surgery, my vision improved to 20/20. For the first time in my entire life… I CAN SEE!!!!!!!!!!!! Whether you can or cannot relate to my experience, I bet you can agree that most people take the amazing ability to see for granted. I have to admit, I cried many times after the procedure just being in shock, having this instantly new ability to see that was so foreign to me. It’s almost like being born without an arm, then 26 years later being given a fully functioning one! I still can’t even believe I have the ability to write this without any help! No contacts or glasses to push up my nose… and I am SO EXCITED!!! This is one of the most emotionally monumental experiences I have ever had. Dr. Roberts gave me the gift of sight after suffering from childhood into my adult life. I highly recommend Dr. Roberts and can first handedly refer to him as a top ophthalmologist, and the most outstanding in the entire country. Dr. Roberts is simply the best, and I say that so confidently, I traveled from Chicago to his practice just to be treated by him. I am so happy with my vision and his care that the only regret I have is not coming to him for this procedure sooner. Dr. Roberts, thank you so much! I will forever have immense gratitude for the way you have helped and treated me. You set the standard of what an experienced, knowledgeable, caring doctor who patients can trust, should be. Patients come to you because they are struggling with something that effects their life, and it can be scary for anyone to make a choice to seek help and change. Like many, I was so used to living with bad eyesight that I learned to deal with the disability. Plus, I was concerned about possible risks and finding a reputable doctor who I could trust. I stopped seeking to improve and just accepted it, but life should not be that way. Many times there are so many opportunities to live life in the very best way that we can, and we should. My hope for your potential future patients, is that if they do have a vision problem that you can improve, instead of just dealing with it, that they gather up the courage to make themself better. We have one life to live and we are responsible for all that we are…. Always be the best you that you can be. Did I say that I can SEE?!! Thank you so much, Dr. Roberts, for making a difference. Best, Jennifer Christenson  
 
I give my highest recommendation, without reservation, of Dr Anthony Roberts and his staff. Dr Roberts is extraordinary, very capable, educational, and personable. He is very patient with his patients. Having had cataract surgery myself, and my son had lasik surgery, our vision has improved to 20/20. You’ll be well served to use the services of Dr. Roberts. You will be pleased that you did. – John Pontius, DPA
 
Dr. Roberts is an outstanding ophthalmologist. I have worn glasses my entire life, but now, after cataract surgery, I can see up close and for distances. Thanks to Dr Robert’s expertise, I can now see perfectly without glasses. I recommend him for any vision issues, because he is the best! – Sarah M Lendrim
