Review of Dr. El Baba

- |

Arrogant, condescending, and rude. I’ve had a very poor experience with this individual and personally I could never recommend him. He may be a knowleablge physician but a less than professional attitude and poor treatment of others are not admirable qualities. I will not be coming back.

Review of Dr. El Baba

- in Holtsville, NY |

Dr. ElBaba is a very skilled & caring opthomalogist. He is always professional & respectful. I trust him to give me the right care. When I speak with his other patients, they always say great things about him. I also think his assistant, Gina is excellent. She is very kind & professional, along with his other staff.

Review of Dr. Schneck

- in Ridge, New York |

Dr. Gideon Schneck successfully worked my surgical needs from beginning to end, and I have beautiful results from his hard work and skilled hands. He is understanding, his office is accommodating, and I am most thankful to Dr. Schneck. Melanie E., Ridge, NY

Review of Dr. Abazari

- in Holtsville, NY |

I first met Dr. Abazari when she treated me for a severe eye hemorrhage & loss of vision. She was on call & treated me with total expertise & care. I believe she saved my vision. I since developed a cataract & could barely see out of my eye. Dr. Abazari did the necessary surgery . Her professional and calm manner put me at ease. The procedure went exactly as she said it would. Dr. Abazari deserves the highest recommendation possible & its my pleasure to do so.

Review of Dr. Honkanen

- in Stony Brook, NY |

I first met Dr. Honkanen when another dr recommended laser irridotomy and was too pompous to take the time to explain procedure and the necessity. I met with Dr Honkanen and he went over procedure and I chose to have it done. I have been seeing him for eye exams. I have now had cataract surgery as the cataracts had become a problem for me. I love that he takes the time to explain without talking down to you and asks if you have any questions ... does not rush you out. I highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Abazari


Dr. Abazari was incredibly kind, empathetic and genuinely cares about the well-being of her patients and their vision. She is knowledgeable, confident (not at all arrogant), and explained my condition in such a way that I was able to easily understand, I recommend her highly and without hesitation.
