I have been a patient of Dr. Rosenblum for many years. He is the absolute best physician, professional, caring and extremely skilled. He has not only managed my twice yearly eye care, but has performed laser surgery two times, all to excellent outcomes. Also, Patrick, the highly skilled technician must be mentioned for his expertise and kindness. I would highly recommend Monterey Bay Eye Center without hesitation.
