West Hartford, CT |
I saw Dr. Jen at Solinski's office. The cave me they kept me waiting for two hours before I could see the doctor. I decided to return after this unprofessional behavior
in Bloomfield, CT |
Delighted to record a ten plus year long relationship with Dr S's practice. The level of concern displayed, the quality of information and options provided is both assuring and comforting. The obvious effort exerted by this practice to employ a multi-ethnic community of young professionals is particularly restorative in these restive times.

Dr. Solinski has taken great care of my eyes for a number of years. Recently, he performed cataract surgery and leI yser surgery on my eyes and, at age 67, I'm able to drive at night! I highly recommend Dr. Solinsky to other folks who need eye treatment.. I now live in New Hampshire, but drive to West Hartford to be treated by Dr. Solensky and his fantastic staff.
