    in Haledon, NJ |
    Dr. Brancato is the BEST optomologist in the state of New Jersey. Never ever had an eye doctor so thorough as her experience & knowledge is light years ahead of all others. Dr. Brancato saved my eye sight as have MS bad & she saw things that over a short period of time would have caused me blindness especially in my left eye from high inflammation in the optic nerve from the MS & also diagnosed me with glaucoma. Other optomologist never did anything for me like Dr. Brancato she's God's Angel.

    She is an absolutely outstanding physician. If it were not for her, my mother would have lost her vision.
