Dr. Rootman is a highly experienced refractive surgeon and corneal expert in Toronto, Ontario. He grew up in Calgary, Alberta, but always knew he wanted to practice his specialty in the "Queen City."
I grew up in Calgary, Alberta, but I always felt that I wanted to live in Toronto. I was attracted towards a big city and all of the resources that a big city has to offer. So, I made a decision, probably when I was about 16 or 17 that I wanted to end up in Toronto. And so, I did most of my training here and then went down to the United States to sample the best that was available there. But, I always knew that I was going to come back here and establish practice which I did in 1998 at the University of Toronto.
