Complete review with numerous tests. Special concern is my right optic nerve atrophy which Dr. Buono says is not getting worse and therefore does not seem alarmed about it. I would like to know more but trust his analysis and hope for the best.

Dr. Buono & his staff were wonderful. The only issue I have is with the parking in the Southold office and the very long wait time. There were so many patients that the waiting room had no available chairs left.

Dr Buono literally saved my life when he spotted abnormal tissue during a routine eye exam. It turned out to be positive for lymphoid cells. I immediately stopped taking the RA med Xeljanz that was causing it and I’m now free of any lymphoid tissue
