Dr. Bainnson was great as usual. I wasn't able to go to the Smithtown office, so I went to the Deer Park office. Everything was great, BUT, the waiting room was disgusting. All the chairs were terribly stained and so was the carpet. A woman came in and she announced to the room how disgusting the chairs were. I had to agree, I was afraid to touch anything. That's not how a doctor's office should look.

Dr. Bainnson was wonderful! He was very informative and explained everything thoroughly to me. He found other issues with my eyes that my OD never picked up on. He made feel at ease and less worried about my issues. I'm currently an employee with SightMD so I would definitely recommend him as well as other doctors to friends and family.

I was checking on my new glasses. The glasses were fine and place to have a midpoint was not a midpoint and I saw not clearly whether reading or walking or driving. Thanks for help and patience. The Bjs staff are making new glasses for me. Thank you for your expertise. You have wonderful staff.

Most pathetic and incompetent staff, My sick mother went to see him . 3 Staff looked at her Medicare card , as they didn't see an A at the end of her Medicare card they stated that Medicare was only for the Hospital and asked her $120.00 to see the doctor, sensing shady business she returned, We never had such a horrible experience ever in any of her doctors visit ever.

Dr. Bainnson's exam was very thorough, and he took the time to explain what he was looking for and why. He is kind and patient, and I am very confident in his diagnosis and prognosis.
