Always ready for my visits and pays attention to patients questions with a full answer
in Clifton Heights, PA |
I was very fortunate to have found Dr. Sammartino. He was recommended by someone whose relative had just had cataract surgery. I was seeing another doctor at the time and was undecided about the surgery. After meeting Dr. Sammartino my doubts left me. He loves what he does, and he truly cares about his patients.
in West Chester, PA |
Dr. Sammartino is an extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and caring physician. He has always carefully monitored my eye problems, exercises caution when he needs to, and always answers any questions I may have. My mother was also his patient, and he always took his time to thoroughly explain anything I needed to know to take the best care of my mother. I give Sammartino my highest recommendation. Even after moving, I still drive an hour to continue to see him.
