Patient Comments (2)
Dr Vitale has been treating my 6 year old son for two years now. He has always taken concern and time to make sure that everything was done to heal his eyes and save his vision. He is very knowledgable and answers our questions so that we can feel in the loop.
My visit with Dr. Vitale was most disappointing. He never asked nor did he allow me to explain the eye problems I am experiencing. He only wanted quick answers to as he said yes or no questions. The questions were general health questions. I wasn't able to show him where my eyes hurt, what makes it better or worse. He did not listen to my eye problems. If a Dr. does not listen or try to understand the patients concerns there is no way he/she can be helpful. I can not recommended him
