Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Berinstein treated my elderly father for MANY years for macular degeneration. He was always very attentive to my dad, sharing a NYC background. Although he'd arrive way earlier than his scheduled appt, he was usually seen quickly. Dr. B. explained clearly and loudly (dad was hard of hearing)...more
