Dr. Phillips' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Phillips "Dr. Phillips is a graduate of Cornell University and SUNY-Stonybrook College of Medicine. He completed an internship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center and his residency at SUNY Downstate where he and subsequently completed a fellowship on neuro-ophthalmology with the esteemed Dr. Arthur H. Wolintz, former Department Chair and Distinguished Professor of Ophthalmology. Dr. Phillips became renown in the Brooklyn community as a trailblazer in the area of cataract surgery when he pioneered the Department of Ophthalmology's offering of the no-stitch/no needle technique and multi-focal lens options, including the new multifocal and accommodating IOLs (premium lens options), to his cataract and presbyopic patients. For over ten years, this option continues to successfully offer patients the possibility of seeing well at varying distances, without the use of spectacles or contacts. The no-stitch cataract surgery enables the eye to heal fast and reduces recovery time significantly, allowing most patients to return to work or sports within days instead of weeks or months, as was common with older surgery methods. Dr. Phillips also performs laser vision correction (LASIK) surgery."

Patient Comments (2)
Bridgewater, NJ |
In June of 2016 I underwent cataract surgery with Bradley Phillips MD and was so please that I did the second eye with him this past Jan. Now, I do not need to wear glasses anymore except for reading. Yip Yip
in North Brunswick, NJ |
Long wait for Saturday appts even when I was the second person there. Then never getting a bill for either of my appointments. Mailed in my last payment via credit card because I wanted to have it documented in case there was a billing error. After three phone calls and another yet to be returned my payment has still not been processed. Not worth any of the hassle. When I had tests, they were not explained to me and doctor was very brief.
