    in St James, NY |
    He was absolutely useless. Had Recurring Erosion in my eye. Sent me home with no eye drops or antibiotics. And said "you don't need to see me again." Within less than 12 hours of my visit. I couldn't even open my eye. The next day, I went to a specialist, because Romanelli had left for vacation (probably why he rushed me out in the first place). And said specialist, gave me a contact bandage and antibiotic eye drops.... the way the job should have been done the first time.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Romanelli's for over 20 years. As a high risk patient with Type 1 Diabetes, (Juvenile Onset), he has always taken excellent care of my eyes, and treated me with kindness and respect. He has seen me through one pregnancy scare, and two other uneventful ones; several overuse of contacts and general checkups every year. He is kind, compassionate, has an excellent bedside manner, and has my loyalty for life!

    Very kind and compassionate doctor with a wonderful bedside manner, Dr Romanelli 's office will fit you in asap ,the same day you call , if you are having an eye infection or injury. Dr Romanelli has the most impressive credentials including the fact that he graduated from Harvard Medical School and trained at a top notch hospital/institute in Manhattan. He has won Top Doctor Awards almost every year. I would not trust anyone else with my eyes or my children and family members' eyes.
