Dr. DeMarini is amazing. He is very helpful, and explains every thing very well. And chooses the best alternative for you and your child's needs. Very attentive.

We used Devaro when our nephew needed eye surgery, and were thrilled to find out he is the eye Dr for the NICU at Memorial for our premature daughter. He is no nonsense when it comes to my daughter's eye health, while being amazingly sweet to her.

Dr Davaro spoke almost exclusively to his nurse, did not take the time to explain what he was talking about to me about my son (I have always had excellent vision and am totally ignorant of eye diseases or terms) and despite my concerns the 3 times we visited him- refused to admit my son had crossed eyes. He kept telling us he just had a wide nose bridge. He said his vision was basically normal. We saw a new dr who diagnosed our son with Optic Nerve Atrophy and crossed eyes. Huge fail.

Friendly, thorough, experienced professional in every sense. Restored my daughters strabismus to 20/20. Special Kudos to his absolutely amazing staff who take the time to treat each patient as special. Nurses remember you, are respectful and I believe genuinely care for their patients which is all too rare these days. I would recommend Dr.Devaro AND his office staff to anyone who wants the best care available, hands down bar none!

Dr. DeVaro saw my son Zachary, his staff was wonderful. My son (who is only 4) had his eyes dilated and had a full exam. The staff was so caring that he never even cried, Dr. DeVaro took the time to answer all my questions and put my mind at ease.
