Patient Comments (3)
The few times I have been here, service was slow. I asked about contacts on my first visit and Dr. Calderone told me it was not possible with my eyes. I came back a year later, got a prescription for contacts (guess he changed his mind), but they gave me the wrong lens. They blamed a tech but refused to give me money back for the wrong lenses. I'll never trust them with my eyes again.

Dr. Calderone is more interested in his patient's health than in performing unnecessary procedures and I trust his judgement. His exams are very thorough and the staff has improved over the years.

The wait time was crazy. Staff was friendly on my visit, but seemed inept in administering the tests. The assistant with Dr. Calderone was falling asleep when he was speaking to me in the room afterward. Weird vibe there.
