Dr. Lopez is the best eye-doctor around! He takes time to explain procedures to his patients. He is extremely knowledgable, kind and caring towards the families of his patients. When my 6-month old had eye surgery with him, he kept me updated and took an approach that was safe and less invasive than he could have taken. He takes in all the information about your child to make the most beneficial decision for them. I would only trust him to operate on my baby (1 year now) and we go in for our follow-up soon for our next procedure. He is the best and you will be happy that you went to him.
