    I would have recommended Dr. Ritterband very highly after undergoing two cataract surgeries with him. However i have told my wife to go elsewhere for her surgery. The problem is that his office is inefficient, the system used for scheduling surgery is anxiety causing, the ONLY PERSON SCHEDULING IS OVERWORKED AND TO GET TO HER IS ABOUT AS HARD AS TALKING TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE USA. The hospital is a disgrace dirty and disorganized. Lines all over. i cannot understand how NYS has not closed it.

    Dr. Ritterband is amazing. He is so smart and kind. He always takes great care of me. I would not trust my cornea with anyone else!

    He was very nice and answered all my questions, however, I am not happy with the staff in the office at the front desk and the surgical coordinator who never returns my calls. I consider that to be rude and unprofessional.
