My appointment with Dr. Sales was very frustrating he has the knowledge but he is very arrogant, he does not allow me ask questions , he told me that he would write a mail to my glaucoma specialist whom referred him. I saw him twice the last visit was on February 6 2020 with the same results.

Dr Sales takes a very serious interest in your health issues as well as you as a person... He’s willing to step out the box if necessary... A rare quality in today’s medical profession... He is relocating out of New York a loss for Cornell and for me. I wish him all the best on his new Journey...

I had dmek surgery 2 & 3 years in each eye. I had a yearly visit with dr sales via video due to the coronavirus. We did the best we could without the benefit of testing. Dr Sales is a wonderful doctor and human being. He will be moving to Iowa in August leaving a giant gap in my life. It will be very difficult to find someone I have as much confidence in

My visit was a final check on how partial transplants in the corneas of both of my eyes were doing approximately 18 months after the last partial transplant. Both transplants were doing well, so well that Dr. Sales told me that I will probably not have to consult a corneal specialist again. This is due to Dr. Sales’ skill in performing the transplant operations and his fine post-operative care. He is an exceptionally capable and caring doctor and I consider myself very fortunate to have been one of his patients.

I was told by Dr. Sales "that medicine is not a science but an art". He actually told me to see another doctor in the practice who he guaranteed would perform the cataract surgery that I was told by 2 doctors that I need. He may be a great doctor, but I didn't see that side of him.
