"I was nervous about the whole thing. My wife and I were both very impressed with Dr Brothers and her staff. There were a lot of measurements and testing done ahead of time, but when she came in she explained what was done and discussed the surgical details and was careful to decide what my best option was for surgery. She asked question about what my vision was like before the cataracts, what I do in my spare time and hobbies I have. She said this would give her a better understanding of what implant would be best for me. I now have had both eyes done by her and my wife is to have surgery with her this spring. We couldn't be happier with the care and service we received at West County Ophthalmology with Dr Brothers."
"Drs Brothers, Slocum and Sagett at the Winghaven location are all thorough, helpful and caring doctors. I feel confident trusting each of them with my families eye health."
"My family has been seeing Dr Brothers for 5 years. She came highly recommended. She is usually on time and takes her time discussing the testing she has done and what she is monitoring. My mother has significant macular degeneration to the level she can no longer be helped. Dr Brothers has sent us to low vision specialist and tried to come up with things to help my mother. We are aware of the limitations with macular degeneration, but she is always kind and reassuring. We are happy to have found Dr Brothers"
"If you need an eye doctor, this is the best place to go. I highly recommend Dr. Brothers. She is awesome! The receptionist at the Winghaven office is very helpful and knowledgeable."
"I had to see doctor Whitney Brothers on an emergency visit. She immediately put me in ease, sensing my anxiety over what my emergency was about. She talked to me the entire time. Relaying everything that she found as she found it. She diagnosed the issue, outcome and treatment plan, reiterating what I should do for ANY change in my status. Most of all, she saw me as a human that was scared and she alleviated all my fears. God bless you."
