    Greenwich, CT |
    Dr Yanuzzi, made us feel like we were so very important and that he had known us for a long time. He is so extremely knowledgeable that everything he spoke about made us feel confident. While our situation is difficult, we know that he is the most capable person to have following us. He was so humble and basically the best doctor in the world for Retina specialty.
