Simply outstanding. I came to see Dr. Dehning on an emergency visit with symptoms of a possible detached retina. Needless to say I was quite concerned and worried. He has a very calming, funny yet professional presence that immediately put me at ease. A very thorough and in depth examination showed that I didn't have a detachment after all. He went to great effort to patiently explain and show me exactly what had happened and that it wasn't something to be concerned about. Best visit ever! I look forward to having Dr. Dehning as my eye doctor from now on!

Spent a very long time understanding my history and presenting options. I felt complete confidence in his abilities and will schedule surgery in January. Would definitely go to him if you have a cataract due to vitrectomy surgery.
