We are so thankful for Dr. Guggino for our daughter's eye surgery. Dr. Guggino is incredibly knowledgeable and caring. He was very kind and understanding with our daughter who was very scared to go through this surgery. We feel incredibly blessed to have Dr. Guggino for this delicate eye surgery. The surgery center staff was also very kind and reassuring to help put our daughter at ease through this procedure. Dr. Guggino's office staff was also very helpful and efficient.

If I could give 0 stars I would. After initially being told I would need to wait 3 months for my daughter to be seen I was ecstatic that after explaining the urgency of the appointment they were able to work me in a week later. That's the only positive experience we had with this office. The nurse or tech (not sure what she was since she never introduced herself) was very abrupt and almost rough with my daughter. Dr. Guggino had us in exam room for 5 minutes before I was informed that he thought

Staff was rude. As a new client I had a vision referral and was told by staff that it needed to be faxed not hand delivered. When I called back for fax number staff told me that I needed to call back in an hour because fax machine sometimes does not work properly and see if fax was received. When I asked if she could call me back she told me no, I needed to call back. That is a shame. So unprofessional, I would not recommend ever.

I was referred to Dr. Guggino by St. Luke's cataract center for surgery to correct diplopia. I was given a prompt appointment. Dr. Guggino was pleasant, competent, did all appropriate test and explained the procedure, the risks and the expectations. The surgery went smoothly and the results were excellent. My double vision with which I had suffered for years and had been told by other doctors was not correctable, was completely cured. He is an excellent doctor.
