What People Say About Dr. Eric Putnoi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
My first (and last) visit involved waiting an hour in crowded room resembling a bus station more than a doctor's office. When I was called I thought to see the doctor, but no, this ride was just beginning. 1st stop was a tiny room yet somehow they managed to have two chairs in there with one man already waiting; I knew it would be a while. Eventually I was moved to a second room, answered questions & 20 mins later saw the dr. He said not to wear my contacts for a few days. "NEXT IN LINE!"

After waiting three weeks, I arrived at my appt for laser treatment of ingrown eyelashes (trichiasis). I waited an hour, then I see Dr. Putnoi & he asks me what I am there for! I tell him the laser treatment to remove the irritating eyelashes. He tells me the technician who does this is not in the office & wanted me to reschedule after waiting three weeks! (And by the way, there is still an office visit charge for today.) No thanks, I'll just find a better ophthalmologist.

Dr. Putnoi is a caring and compassionate doctor who gives the time to provide "world class" eye care to his patients. He is easy to talk to and understands the concerns that one may have prior to surgery. I have had him perform cataract surgery on both of my eyes and the results are fabulous! I see better at night than I have ever seen in my lifetime. Dr. Putnoi is the best!
