    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.

    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!
