Dr Campolattaro is Amazing, I brought my 5 year old in today and I was highly concerned with her recent vision loss. He gave us his undivided attention, made the visit amazingly fun for our daughter and put us at ease with all of our concerns. He was super professional but also brilliant and personable. I would highly recommend him!

Dr.Camplotarro is the best!! My daughter was born with a cateract in her left eye and after researching we knew he was the one we wanted to trust w/ our child. She has had 4 eye surgeries with him n he is by far the best. She is now 9 and we come from NC just so he can do her yearly checkups. The staff is great. Always fitting me in. Evette is awesome as well. Never once did I have a bad experience in all my years going to him. EXCELLENT!!!

He is totally dishonest. Billed me for services we didn't receive.
Think twice before going to this doctor - the office staff is terrible

My 18 month old just got her blocked tear duck surgery done this morning at NY Eye and Ear by Dr. Campolattaro. She has recovered very well and up and running again in the afternoon.
My daughter was diagnosed with the same eye condition as my wife. Dr. Brian has so far done one lens implant which went smoothly and we are getting her second eye done this week. Let's start with the good: Dr. Brian is an amazing doctor. He's warm and friendly and has an incredible bedside manner and takes time to ask questions. The bad: normal wait time is 2-3 hours which frankly is ridiculous. The staff is ATROCIOUS at every office. Rude, incompetent, uncaring and should all be fired.

My daughter was diagnosed with Duanes Syndrome. On a referral we brought her to Dr. Campolattaro and it was the best thing we could have done for her. Not only is he an amazing surgeon but he is such warm and caring doctor. The office staff is friendly and we had a great overall experience.

My 2 kids had appointments for eye control, they were fine but after 2 minutes in the office Dr C. discovered my baby (who didn't have appointment and was there only because I didn't have baby sitter for her) has blurry eye and needs eye patch and glasses. I was impressed and shocked together. He made her all exams and it was confirm. I'm so thankful he discovered her problem now because she has high chance now fix her vision.
I have been a patient of Dr. Campolattaro for eleven years he is absolutley the best! Very warm, friendly ,welcoming and extremely knowledgable. I have a visual condition in which no other doctor could find a solution he did. This man is amazing

My child was prescribed the wrong glasses with the exact opposite problem for over 18 months. We told him that she was having a problem with the glasses that he prescribed but he rushed through the exam and again gave us the wrong prescription. His staff are discourteous and after waiting three hours I had to go to a new eye doctor who immediately recognized the problem. Now her eyes are damaged from being forced to wear the wrong glasses for over a year. His office is run like a factory!
in Binghamton, NY |
Absolutely amazing surgeon and overall a fantastic person. i had both eyes operated on by Dr.Campolattaro and can't stress enough how easy of a process he made it, and his level of excellence in opthamalogy. (One of the best opthamalogists in NYC) Eye surgery is a freaky thing but his confidence and relaxed demeanor made my worries disappear. 10/10

My son had the beginning of an ulcer of the cornea. Dr Campolattaro was incredible. Made sure we understood the potential seriousness of the situation but gave us all the tools to deal with it. Made himself available if we had any questions and i feel so lucky that my son was under his care. Excellent care. Thank you!

Dr. Compolattaro was a great surgeon. You can trust him, and he takes time to explain everything he does. I'm glad I came upon such a great surgeon.ThanK you soooooo much for everything Dr. compolattaro! -----------(pacient)
in Hawthorne, NY |
The wait is always long, but he is worth it! He really cares about his patients and has a wonderful bedside manner.
in Brooklyn, NY |
He is such a great doctor. I've been taking my 13 year old there for a few years now. He always makes her feel comfortable and, never fails to make her laugh. Dr. Campolatarra performed double eye surgery on my daughter. He made a very stressful situation less stressful just by his calm & understanding manner. NHe takes the time to make sure both me and my daughter understand what he's saying. I highly recommend him.
