Patient Comments (2)
Litchfield, CT |
I have been a patient of Dr Pinke's for 15 years. He has always taken very good care of me and my eyes. Several years ago he diagnosed a problem with my left eye and sent me to a cardiologist. That diagnosis led me to a pacemaker that I never would have known about until he saw it. His staff is particularly kind and professional. They are always friendly. If you need an ophthalmologist, here is the place to go.

I Would highly recommend Dr. Pinke for eye care. He is very professional and and he took the time to answer all of my questions in great detail regarding my condition. I was very happy with the outcome of my cataract surgery. My vision is excellent. His staff makes you feel very comfortable as well. Very satisfied.
