My husband has been seeing Dr. Coney for a number of years. He has helped him immensely. He goes out of his way to find solutions to any concern or problem that my husband may have with his eyes. He is always pleasant and always has a smile on his face. He may sometimes even say something that makes us laugh. He is a Blessing! I can tell that he is a man of God. Dr. Coney's demeanor is wonderful! He will go to the limit to help each and every patient that has. I would recommend him highly! Dr. Coney's staff is always pleasant, warm, wears a smile, helpful, and so friendly. Each visit that we may have is very beneficial for my husband. We have always had a great experience at the Retina Association. My husband is so blessed to have a phenomenal doctor like Dr. Coney. God bless and keep him!

Dr. Coney is the best of the best. I had a very stubborn macular hole (ERM/VMT), which required two vitrectomies within two years, but God has used the skilled hands of this surgeon to bring what may have resulted in a loss of vision in one eye to 20/20 (corrected). He has carefully monitored both eyes (one is developing a mac hole) and has been patient in working with me through some tough personal times to ensure surgeries were scheduled as conveniently as possible. Can't say enough about him and feel so blessed to have him as my specialist.

I recommend Dr. Coney. In May due to covid-19, I was finally able to get an eye appointment with my new eye doctor, Dr. Alessio. By that time, I had developed a problem with my left eye. After examining my eyes, Dr. Alessio sent me over to Retina Associates the very same day. That was the first time I met Dr. Coney. He examined me, and immediately knew what was wrong with my left eye - I had a tear in the retina. He immediately performed laser surgery on the eye. He let me know what he was doing every step of the way. Soon, I noticed a big improvement in my eyesight! Dr. Coney set up a follow-up visit in two weeks, and he determined that my eye was healing nicely. My subsequent visit with Dr. Coney was Aug. 28. My eye was feeling excellent, and Dr. Coney concurred that it was completely healed. He told me that I would not need to see him anymore, unless Dr. Alessio sent me for more work. I am so impressed with Dr. Coney's skill as a doctor, and his integrity as a human being.

Almost two years ago I went to Dr Coney to treat retinal bleeding in my eye. Because the bleeding was idiopathic and I was an atypical patient, we worked out a treatment plan that allowed him to follow and learn from my diagnosis as well as letting me make choices that we felt would benefit me the most. To this day, he has controlled the disorder and we have worked well together in maintaining my sight and damage to my eye. I am very grateful to have such a knowledgeable and competent Doctor to treat this disorder in the best way possible.

I met Dr. Coney after my ophthalmologist discovered I had a hole in my macula. I was extremely nervous once I knew that I would have to have surgery on my retina. Dr. Coney was very thorough and explained the procedure to me. As it turned out, I had to have both eyes operated on within nine months. I am doing well now because of the excellent care I received from him. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Coney to friends that might be able to benefit from his expertise in the specialty of the retina. Thank you Dr. Coney for all that you did for me.

From the moment I met Dr. Coney he made me feel very comfortable. He took time explaining what I was experiencing with my vision and the procedure required. His staff at the Lippy Surgery Center were very accommodating and helpful throughout the process. I am so excited my eyesight has improved and continues to improve with time. I definitely would recommend him to family & friends!

My appointment with Dr. Coney at Retina Associates of Cleveland in Youngstown was without exception perfect in every way. Dr. Coney is extremely knowledgeable and totally concerned about each patient, in addition to creating a friendly environment. Lorie and Carolyn on staff were very helpful.

Dr. Coney was very well informed about my problem. I had total confidence after the first visit. He explained my problem to me in language I could understand and feel confident about. He then proceeded to treat me and improve my condition to the point I could go on with my life and understand what my new limits were and there were no surprises. After the treatment and conference I felt totally informed. This was very important to me and I felt completely informed.
