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!

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!

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.
