"Dr. Theroux is a top notch Ophthalmologist . Professional, personal, knowledgeable, and caring. Everything you would ever require or want in your eye doctor. My husband and I are very pleased with Dr. Theroux and his staff for individual attention and care. We have been patients for over 10 years and are very satisfied."



"I had an excellent cataract removal experience with the well coordinated surgery team at St James Surgery Center. They put a very personal touch on a professionally orchestrated surgical process. Everything from intake/insurance approval thru going home instructions was clear. The center is easy to get to with plenty of parking. The surgery prep room made me think, "this is a really good team - lots of smooth handoffs and cross checking to insure accuracy! There were a bunch of chairs that convert to operating tables and they move patients in and out at an impressive pace. Well oiled machine!! They were a friendly and (seem like a) happy crew! What I really liked was the results of my surgery!! Dr Sayeah is friendly and confident, justifiably proud of the skills he has mastered. He gives people their sight back for a living! Needless to say, I'm thrilled to see with real clarity (and in color!!) again!!"



"I was so nervous going in St James for my procedure but those feelings were left at their front door! From the moment I walked in the staff was fantastic in informing you of the procedure,prep..and post surgery information.I cant say enough about the staff.What a wonderful group of professionals! St James should be proud of each and everyone of them!!!"
