Initially I met Dr Vic in Huntsville. He would come up to Huntsville once a month for referrals. My ophthalmologist Dr Steven's had referred me to him for an excessively opened eyelid caused by a previous surgery. He was wonderful. Dr Vic explained everything to me and answered my questions. I never felt rushed. His staff was also very friendly and made me feel at ease, especially on surgery day. I highly recommend Dr Vicinanzo.

My mother had two procedures performed by Dr. Vicinanzo. They were both redos done by different physicians. Dr. V did an excellent job and the recovery was minimal for my 82 yo mom.

Dr Vicinanzo performed salvage surgery on my daughter’s eye after she had an orbital fracture. He corrected and repaired a fracture that was missed by a surgeon out of state. We travelled approx. 400 miles to see Dr. Vic as he was highly recommended. We are tremendously in debt to Dr. Vic.

Caring and professional, goes the extra mile in checking and researching when something out of the ordinary appears. Takes time with each visit and double checks when necessary. Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I had a really bad Bells Palsy affecting my left eye and cranial nerve. Dr. Vic with his great sense of humor put me at ease and was able to get my eye to open so I could see. The stitches were so fine. He did a beautiful job. Thank You Dr. Vicinanzo

I was told during my yearly eye exam I needed help for my eye lids and eyebrows. They were sagging BAD. Dr. Vicinanzo repaired both my eye lids and eyebrows. His nurses and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I found him very kind and pleasant. Plus he openly discussed what I needed. He preformed my surgery at the UAB eye hospital. The nurses were awesome, especially the doctor of anesthesiology. I would especially like to thank her. It is unreal the better vision I have. My neighbor says I look 10 years younger. Another neighbor says I look as if I have open my eyes and woke up.. I am totally pleased and happy I found Dr. Vicinanzo. If I had to do it again, I would choose him. He has just opened a satellite office in Huntsville on the Crestwood Hospital campus. Proud my follow up visits are local.

Dr. Vic performed ptosis surgery on both of my eyelids. The procedure was explained in a manner which was easily understood. He has a charming personality while always being very professional. His office staff was very helpful arranging the surgery. My eyes have had a chance to heal & my vision is greatly improved! I can now see well enough to drive at night. I only wish that I had not delayed the surgery. Once you talk to Dr. Vic you will know you have made the right decision!

Dr. V, is awesome. He is dedicated to his profession and confident in his skills. Very appealing chair side manner. It was quick and painless. I had upper eyelid surgery to right eye and it has healed beautifully. It looks better than the left eye that didn't have surgery. Can't tell which eye had the lid problem.

He is relaxed while being professional. The procedures were fully explained and my questions were answered with with exactitude snd a sardonic humor. His surgery on my eyes, which had had several medically necessary procedures, resulted in a wonderful look that greatly enhanced my face.
