GREAT KNOWLEDGEABLE DOCTOR , FRIENDLY STAFF NICE AND QUIET OFFICE.
Brooklyn, NY |
Had a recent eye emergency and had to see a doctor ASAP. Most ophthalmology offices I called were already booked with their next appointment weeks away. I found Dr. Dessner and was able to schedule an appointment for the same day. When I got in, I was seen almost right away after completing their paperwork. Excellent, knowledgable doctor with a great staff. Will keep Dr. Dessner as my regular doctor for myself and my family.

Nice clean office with very nice staff. The doctor was friendly and very comforting. I felt like he listened and made good eye contact. I will return for my annual visit here.

just received a call (at 4:30PM) telling me i had they were canceling my appointment that is tomorrow morning. I have been suffering with so much pain for the past week and looked forward to finally getting it diagnosed. The woman that called me suggested I call his other clinic. NO ONE answered and there is no system to leave a voicemail. Most ophthalmology offices are now closed and I will continue to suffer until i can find a new doctor at a different office!

This was one of the worst doctors I have been to. He has terrible bedside manner. They rescheduled me for two separate appointments, less than 24 hours before, causing me to choose between a serious eye problem and work. I had to miss 1/2 of a day of work because of Dr. Dessner's complete disregard for his patients time. But worst of all he missed a serious condition in my eye, that my GP saw immediately. This man is a terrible doctor, with no manners. He does not care about his patients at all.
