Found this clinic, and Dr. Kreska, substandard. Every appt was at least 2 hrs. Was there for cataract removal. Took 3 months to get to non laser surgery. Uncomfortable experience. Dr actually cut my nose during procedure. Complained that vision was worse, post surgery. They claimed vision was good, and refused to correct, without expense Had corrective "lazer" surgery, at another eye clinic Totally, would suggest avoiding.

Buyer beware! While Dr. Kresca seemed competent and caught that my lenses needed to be changed, this clinic is geared towards maximizing profits. Staff suggested, but was careful not to state clearly, that lens enhancements such as anti-glare coatings would be fully covered. They weren't, and two months later I received a bill for over $250 in copays for one pair of bifocals, in addition to a $50 exam enhancement that I was not informed would cost extra. Non-network Walmart is a better option.
