Greatest experience I have ever had in a doctor's office or surgery! Entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful in answering all of my questions and keeping me informed about the entire process of having my eyesight adjusted utilizing the Lasik procedure. I would highly recommend this to anybody looking to get rid of their glasses and wake up in the morning being able to see clearly and sharply!

I had Lasik back in 2009. Aside from one eye healing a bit slower than the other I had zero issues. Everyone seems to be told they may still need reading glasses but I needed nothing. I was corrected to 20/20 vision almost 10 years ago and I'm just starting to use cheaters for reading. I'm hoping Dr. Bucci will be able to adjust my eyes again. He has the best bedside manners and genuine concern for all his patients. I would recommend him to anyone as I have been for the last 9 - 10 years.

Had Lasik surgery in January 2018 and later had a free enhancement done on my left eye (which didn't heal properly the first time due to my astigmatism). Dr. Bucci and his staff are friendly and prompt--I never had to sit around waiting long, which is shocking given the number of patients he has. The staff worked to accommodate me and my schedule to the best of their ability. Great overall experience, would highly recommend.

My experience with Dr Bucci and his staff was nothing less that EXCEPTIONAL!!!! I am a "perfectionist".....and worry-wort. After INTERVIEWING 3 leading eye doctors in my area.....I chose Dr Bucci. I had my 1st cataract surgery yesterday. My followup this a.m. went perfectly. After being told I can see 20/20 out of that eye. Experiencing NO PAIN....no adverse post op reactions....I am THRILLED!!!! Doing it again next month with the other eye. I have nothing but praises for him and his team!

There are no words to describe the miracle of having my vision lost, and then restored completely, painlessly, professionally by Dr Bucci and his awesome Staff!! I still can't believe I can see this clearly! I had Bad vision my whole life, heavy ugly glasses and didn't realize I had Cataracts in my 40's The staff is like a family, the care, professionalism and expertise are rare these days! In 7 minutes I was given better vision then I've ever had!! Thank You from the bottom of my heart

Excruciatingly painful cataract surgery; Vision was not fully corrected; Eye problems resulting from the surgery were not pro-actively addressed, leading to permanent on-going eye problems He tried to push for an additional procedure costing another $1600 on top of the $3600 just paid for the cataract removal; fortunately another doctor was able to solve the problem with eye drops and patience

I had catarct surgery in both eyes. Dr Bucci determined that I had a very bad astigmatism in both eyes along with my nearsightedness. I wore glasses for over 45 years. The surgery results exceeded my and Dr Bucci's expectations. Nearsightedness and astigmatism is almost non existant. I now only use glasses for reading. I was treated with the highest of professionalism by the whole staff. I highly recommend Dr Bucci.

I had lasik surgery by Dr. Bucci and it was great. The staff, along with Dr. Bucci, was wonderful. I could see 20/20 the next day. Lasik was the best decision I ever made!!
