My office visits and the surgery that Dr. Vicinanzo performed on my eyes were excellent. Dr. Vicinanzo has a cute personality and made me feel very comfortable with his care. I feel that he is very honest and will tell you the truth about needing a surgery. I have never had a surgery that went as well. His office staff is outstanding and were always very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr, Vicinanzo to anyone that is looking for an excellent surgeon.

My surgery was on April 28 2017 and it went well, I feel Blessed and Fortunate to have had Dr. Vicinanzo for my doctor, from my first appointment to the last. My hospital care was excellent. Dr. Vic staff is great, he's very Knowledable and cares about his patients. I would Highly recommend Dr. Vic.
After months of my left eye draining down my face, Dr. Vic explained how he could open my blocked tear ducts. He made it all sound relatively simple and was very reassuring as he answered my questions. He didn't make me feel rushed nor pressed to have treatment. The day of surgery, he stopped by before and after to visit me, making sure I was comfortable. The tears immediately began to drain normally! A month later he removed the tube and all is still well. I highly recommend Dr. Vic!

Most helpful, thoughtful, hilarious, kind, reassuring and educated doctor I have ever had! He makes me excited to go to the doctor and makes me not want to leave.
Dr. Vicinanzo gave me excellent care. He has a great bedside manner, a good sense of humor. Most of all, he knows what he is doing. He eviscerated, or removed most of my painful eye. I did very well from day one. More than anything, I appreciated his up to date knowledge.

I feel incredibly fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Viciananzo, and subsequently having him as an integral part of my medical team during a stressful and traumatic medical event. He is fabulous! Wait time for appointments is minimal, I never felt rushed during my appointments, he answered all of my questions and made me feel as though he genuinely cared not only about my physical health, but mental health as well. I can't say enough good things about the quality of care I received.

From check in to surgery to recovery and to discharge, I received impeccable care! Dr. Vicinanzo and staff epitomize what true Professional care should be! By the way, he could teach a class to any surgical group on bedside manner and considering the patients' questions and concerns, before and after the surgical process. Truly a unique experience that deserves recognition!
