Dr. Pinhas is amazing. He is a brilliant doctor and has the greatest compassion. He saved my eyesight and is very modest. He is the best eye doctor I have ever seen

Excellent & caring! Dr. Pinhas diagnosed a pre glaucoma condition in my eyes about 15 years ago. He keeps a close watch on it and has performed cataract surgery on me. My vision now is excellent and it’s because of all the close care and expertise of this doctor!

I used to live in Brooklyn. I was diagnosed with high ocular pressure . I went to see Dr. Pinhas and was very happy. He was kind and very professional. While other physicians were not able to help me, he did a procedure and my pressure came down. I would recommend him to anyone

I have a problem with anything touching or even coming close to my eyes. Because of this this problem I put off having cataract surgery. Luckily my PCP recommended that I see Dr. Pinhas. Due to his expertise I was able to have both cataracts removed. I'm still jumpy about anything coming at or near my eyes but Dr. P. knows just how to handle the situation to get the job done for my annual exams. If not for him I'd either be wearing coke bottle eyeglasses or be practically blind.

I was diagnosed by Dr. Pinhas with glaucoma in 1096. Then lived in other state. 12 years ago my eye pressure was 50 and more. Most oftalmologists didn’t give me any guarantee that I will be able to see in a few years, even after surgery. Than I came again to Dr Pinhas. & after his surgery in 2005 my vision still good!

I got cataract removal surgery on 03/28/17 that has been performed by Dr David Pinhas. Something did not go so well, I had to visit a doctor for eye drops change, need to have a another procedure on 05/16, 2017, which is understandable, but the eye still hurts, irritated, I keep calling the office several times, no response from the stuff, front desk secretaries absolutely unprofessional, irresponsible, it is so frustrating, and in the end of the day I need to visit another doctor

I was a patient of Dr. Pinhas for over 15 years, due to my schedule I could not attend his office as often, when I called the office on 10/31/2016 with an emergency front desk was extremely rude, nasty and very disdainful, I told them that I have emergency and I really need to see the Dr. they told me that because I have not seen Dr. for more than a couple of years they can not accept me and I have to register and make an appointment as a new patient, so I insisted that they ask a Dr. to see

Despite many calls I made having a few conversations with office staff by the name of Veronica and other, faxing authorization form and confirming such on the phone, scheduling an appointment, when I have arrived in time on the date of scheduled appointment I was not allowed to see a doctor. I was told that my insurance is not accepted. I was turned down without saying sorry and admitting their mistake.
