Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Pizzano is professional and thorough, but he has a good bedside manner. He is not abusive to his staff which other doctors at this practice were. Staff at the Bustleton office is also very professional.
Norristown, PA |
Dr. Pizzano told me there were calcium deposits in my left eye and he removed them (did he?) He prescribed me Tobramycin for 4 days. I still felt the discomfort. He said to continue Tobramycin for another 7 days. After 7 days it still didn't get any better. I went to see another ophthalmologist who told me there was nothing in my eyes, just dry. She prescribed me an ointment for 7 days, the discomfort was gone! Why didn't Dr. Pizzano tell me I had dry eyes? He's a joke, should retire, too old!
