Kudos to MEC. I have always gotten excellent eye care at MEC - first with Dr. Pearlman, who is now retired. Dr. Pearlman was a great help to me after my unhappy cataract lens replacement with another doctor's practice. On my recent visit, I had Dr. Jobe who is new with the practice. Dr. Jobe was easy to talk with; he quickly analyzed and solved the problem of my painful and stressed red eyes. He carefully, calmly and clearly answered all of my questions and made recommendations to allay my fears to my complete satisfaction. Dr. Jobe and the Staff at MEC were friendly, courteous and efficient. Many thanks to everyone! Michael Curtis

Dr is excellent I know him for more than 25 years Ii met him when he did cataract surgery for my mother, now that my ophthalmologist retired I started coming to his office in Newark, because I trust him and the group of doctors that work fir him. The assistants usually are nice and competent, but the gentleman who does peripheral vision test can be a tittle rough . The receptionists are excellent. Overall a good experience.

Dr. Marano is kind, tactful, and generous with his time and talent. My elderly grandparents had recently undergone unsuccessful cataract surgery (each) at the hands of another surgeon. They endured two months of pain, discomfort, and uncertainty of whether they were going to be able to see again. That is when a family friend referred us to Dr. Marano who thoroughly reviewed my grandparents’ treatment records, identified the problem areas, and scheduled remedial surgery within five (5) days. Further, Dr. Marano was patient and explained the procedure step-by-step, reassuring them that they’d be able to see again. After the surgery, he sat with them and asked how they were feeling. They even took a picture together! Dr. Marano and his staff treat everyone with respect and deliver personalized care to their patients. I would highly recommend him for yourself and/or your loved ones.

I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes by Dr Marano. He and his office staff explained the procedure in full. Dr. Marano makes you feel confident and comfortable that the procedure would be safe and painless. His team of office staff and doctors are professional and are always there to answer any question you may have. I am very pleased with the procedure..

I went to Dr Marano for a follow up on eye pressure after stated on medication, because my pressure increased, Dr Marano felt immediate action was needed to decrease the pressure & performed laser surgery to decrease the pressure to avoid peripheral loss of vision, he & his office staff were professional & educational on the process.

WAIT TIME IS REALLY HORRIBLE. Be prepared to spend 3 hours + there. They booked too many appointments all at once and the same time and it is noticeable in the waiting area, so unpractical. I had a 1:15pm appointment for my mother then 3:30pm she still didn't see the doctor, so we left. Great Staff and the Doctor is really EXCELLENT. So if you have time to spare, then go there, but If you are in a rush, then don't. That's the 7th time. Same thing.
