Harold in Forest Hills – Feb 03, 2018
I've been a patient for more than 20 years. The only issue is the wait time. I try to have the first appointment of the day. Dr. Fromer is smart but can be a little arrogant. He knows his stuff. I feel very confident about his medical decisions and expertise. The staff members are very nice and caring.

I was referred to Dr. Fromer by a colleague, once his colleague could no longer help me. Dr. Fromer seemed concerned with my condition he assured me he would save my vision. When this all started I was able too see from both eye's. After many visits (approx. 3 yrs.) many injection's 3 surgeries I was left blind in 1 eye and only approx. 30% of vision in the other eye. At my last visit I was told by him people loose limb's everyday you will have to deal with it. The worst experience ever.

Ridgewood, NY – Jun 13, 2017
I did not see Dr. Mark fromer. But went to his practice, Fromer eye center. If you have any other option, I urge you to use them. i have had eye problems since early childhood and know the difference between good and bad care. Do not go here if you want good care. I would not be surprised if they were a Medicaid/ Medicare mill.i will not return and, if you have other options, use them.
